Leadership Development

Technical excellence rarely translates into instant leadership brilliance.  It takes heightened awareness of self and others, knowledge of what is really needed, and different skills to be an effective leader.

Often those that are technically good at their jobs are promoted into leadership positions, and discover they have to spend most of their time focusing on the needs of others, and precious little time working on their own projects.   And for many, this can be quite challenging.

Common new leader issues

Without the right knowledge and skills to effectively lead and manage themselves and others, new leaders often flounder in their changed roles.  Inexperienced leadership can contribute to heightened conflict, lower productivity and morale, and increased staff turnover.

How we transform your technical stars into outstanding leaders

As specialists in the engineering and technology sector- we understand first hand that acquiring “people skills” to effectively lead others doesn’t always come naturally to those in professions more at home with logic, maths, science and technology.

Which is why we developed Leadership Experience – our five-step framework which follows scientifically-proven neuroscience and coaching methodologies.

It resonates with technical personality types, and gets them fully engaged in the why, what and how of becoming an inspiring and effective leader.

“Caroline’s coaching workshop for leaders was incredibly insightful. She outlined practical ways for us to engage and motivate our people and provided us with great tools and recommendations to continually improve. I would highly recommend her to other organisations wanting to develop their leadership teams.”
