Leadership & Learning Solutions

Giving Leaders the ability to understand themselves and understand others

Tried and tested
We offer the most up-to-date thinking in Leadership development drawing from a combination of our own lived experience, our experience with Australian workplace clients, our passion for research and global best practices.   As our leadership programmes have been applied to our own Leaders at Amicus, we know they work.
A range of solutions
Whether you're in need of a full solution, a part solution or facilitation only, we can step in to help you make the most impact. We have the experience and capability to meet you where you're at with our bespoke leadership and learning solutions that cater to every situation.
Practical approach
Our Leadership solutions are practical, modern and engaging to deliver optimum results. We help Leaders that need to operate from a variety of settings such as assisting Leaders who are now increasingly finding themselves leading geographically dispersed teams virtually.

Designing for You

Where we make the most impact is designing your bespoke leadership training programme. From experience we know that great leadership training achieves this for participants: unlearning old unhelpful habits, relearning the timeless evidence-based approaches that achieve success; and learning additionalleadership skills specific to the ‘new normal.

Here’s our design approach: 

●   Stage 1: Discover
●   Stage 2: Define & Design
●   Stage 3: Deliver
●   Stage 4: Embed

How we can design leadership learning for results

  • Stage 4: Embed

Designing with You

Our goal is to be your trusted leadership development partner who doesn’t over complicate things, brings your goals and ideas to life and sets you to up to run your own learning solutions cost-free after the engagement finishes.

There are many ways we can partner with you when you don’t require a bespoke solution. When a part solution or codesign solution is needed, we can: 

●   ‘Take out’ modules from our internal Leadership Program (Optimum) and ‘plug them in’ to your own learning structure

Design content for your team to facilitate

Facilitate content that your team has designed

Designing for the New Normal

We design solutions that engage participants through the most up-to-date thinking in Leadership combined with practical activities (but, no role plays!). After all, it is one thing to “know” but “knowing” does not always guarantee “doing." Especially when it comes to Leadership!

We keep it practical, covering all topics related to Leadership Development and believe the following workshops are particularly key right now:

●   Feedback - An Empathy Based Approach
●   How to Set Goals That Will Actually Be Achieved
●   Delegation 4QL – An evidence-based approach for Goal Setting
●   To Motivate People, Do These Things Well
●   Delegation 4QL – An evidence-based approach for Accountability
●   Productivity and Time Management SHoTs (Short Hits of Training)

Highly Capable Facilitators & Coaches

Our team is qualified, experienced in all aspects Leadership Development; and have led their own teams. This means they have the most up-to-date thinking in Leadership, and they can also draw from their own lived experiences to directly relate to your situations and challenges. They truly do get it!
