Programme Outline:

Week 1-3: Building the Context for Greatness

Who are you? What makes you great? What holds you back from reaching your full potential? In the first week you’ll meet with either Sarah or Michael from The Performance Team and review your career history, aspirations and current challenges.

You’ll also complete the EQ-i 360. The Emotional Quotient 360 (EQ 360) is an emotional intelligence assessment that allows leaders to receive feedback from peers, managers, direct reports, and others on how you leverage your emotional intelligence.

Week 4: The Power of Clarity

The 16 leaders will come together in a 3-day residential workshop. This first workshop is building clarity of leadership purpose and promise. You’ll start by building a professional strategic leadership framework that gives full clarity and understanding of your purpose, vision, goals and values. Then, you’ll explore the blocks to creating this and understanding how these blocks hold you back from creating all the things of greatest meaning in your life. You’ll be challenged to show up for who you really are and experience the greatest challenge in leadership – the ability to confront the imposter syndrome and stand with courage and vulnerability for your leadership potential.

Weeks 5-7 The Power of Wisdom

This 3 week section of the programme is back at work where you’ll be the corporate psychologist, reviewing and assessing your team’s performance.

In addition to these 4 assignments. Each of your team members will also complete the TPT team performance on-line assessment confidentially so that they team members can express unreservedly their impressions of the team’s operating dynamics.

You’ll also be supported by a peer on the programme who is your primary support network along with check-ins with The Performance Team.

Week 8: The Power of Connection

The group of 16 leaders returns together for the next workshop. This is a 3 day programme (non-residential) designed to debrief, analyse and synthesize the results and formulate a bespoke team development plan that will move the team from it’s current state to increased performance. The content of this 3 day programme will be designed based on the learnings and insights of the group, leaders will be required to facilitate the evolvement of learnings from the group and through the process they will build their mastery for facilitation design and group process.

Week 9-11: The Power of Action

Who’s this for?

This programme is for the type of leader who sees their legacy is to create something meaningful for the expressed benefit of serving the greater good. Maybe they have intuitive sense that something from their leadership is missing and the passion, spark that they once had has gone but a glimmer of hope recognizes that there’s more to go. Or they have been steadily climbing the corporate ladder and know to reach that next step something profound in their leadership needs to transform for great leadership to be claimed and fully expressed. Already proficient in team leadership and the ability to create the basics of leading high performance; such as setting vision, strategy, building trust and accountability) this leader wishes to understand and build their capability to their leadership and the team’s performance to the next level.

Transformation is not a comfortable process and this course is design for the courageous leader willing to step out of their comfort zone to experience themselves and their relationship to others in an authentic way to improve both personal and business performance.
