We partner with you to build enduring success across your entire organisational ecosystem

Daintree National Park

We know you have already laid much of the groundwork.  Our job is to honour your existing leadership narrative while enriching your leaders’ development.  Our approach is founded on three principles:

  • A whole system view – we consider not just the person in isolation but the entire human and organisational system into which they connect.
  • A focus on mindset, not just skillset – the best way to lift performance is not to focus on performance itself but what’s driving it.
  • Attention to vitality – research shows that sustainable high performance requires a foundation of high wellbeing.

I selected Leading Well to lead up our Laureate University Leadership program in Australia, which encompassed a four-tier approach to management and leadership development across the organisation.
Laureate was undergoing significant change through this process in terms of our leadership; growth plans and acquisitions. The Leadership program was able to help us to develop our people and support them to increase their connection with each other and the business, thereby lifting performance both personal and discretionary effort.
