Build A High-Performing Leadership Team. See The Organisation Flourish

Corporate leadership training that provides the skills and mindset to manage a team and a business effectively.

Experience Leaders

80% of organisations see leadership as a high priority yet only 41% believe their leaders are ready to meet the requirements.

- Deloitte, Global Human Capital Trends, 2019

Developing leaders who drive employee experience

Leaders who create environments where people are engaged, stimulated, challenged and valued are more essential than ever. A superb employee experience, when combined with an excellent customer experience is proven to drive organisational success.

Most companies are full of technical experts and functional managers. They are not natural people leaders. They struggle to motivate, inspire, performance manage or support their teams through challenging transformations.

The leaders who thrive are adaptive, agile and authentic; they are strategic thinkers who can cope with cross-functional initiatives and continue to grow the organisation despite challenges. These are the high-performing leaders we help develop and unite to work together in your organisation.

Building capabilities to lead through change

CUA Banking

For 18 months, CUA had faced an enormous amount of change across their organisation: A new CEO, an executive team restructure, a brand relaunch, an organisational realignment… and that’s just the beginning. Their leaders needed support and development to lead and achieve positive change across CUA. To tackle this challenge head on, we delivered a 6-month ‘phased’ program with 20 nominated participants from CUA. The focus was on the application of learning, each participant had an existing project to work on, implement and manage through the program.

The Result: upon completion, each participant had practical, demonstrable capabilities in leading self, leading others, leading change, leading through disruption and leading at CUA.

“A highly valuable, highly practical program. Unlike any other program I’ve done.”

– Dylan Atherton, Business Owner – Lending Program, CUA
Industry: Insurance

The program provided a foundation for the team to operate with more vulnerability and trust, and collaboration had definitely improved.

In 2018, we were approached to do some development work with a senior leadership team. The team had been recently restructured in a way that introduced exciting diversity to the team – they had a new CEO and had also hired some executives that were new to the organisation and new to the financial services industry. They were also transitioning away from a silo-based focus to a customer centric focus, in line with the entire business.

The key objectives of the Agile Leadership Program we designed were as follows:

  • Leverage the individual diverse strengths of the new leadership team
  • Create space for greater trust and vulnerability amongst team members
  • Build a collaborative and highly cohesive work environment
  • Support the team to become more resilient
  • Shift from an individual focus to an enterprise focus

The program took place over five months and involved Hogans leadership assessments, 4 face-to-face workshops, online training, group coaching calls and 1:1 executive coaching.

The Result: at the end of the program, we received feedback that the team had developed a greater understanding of their individual strengths and development opportunities. Also, the program had provided a foundation for the team to operate with more vulnerability and trust, and collaboration had definitely improved. The team were also demonstrating strong resilience in the light of new changes to the business that were creating significant stress and pressure.

I am super-proud of the team for our growth over the past 4-months, as a team and as individuals. Please pass on my thanks to Colin for his professionalism and approach with the team.”
