Why invest?

Running a business in today’s volatile, unpredictable world is extremely challenging. Decades of research show that the quality of your leadership will have a significant impact on the performance and successful growth of your company.

Our SME Leadership Accelerators are specifically designed for small and mid-size organizations to enable them to deliver their strategy, capitalize on new opportunities and overcome growth challenges, including fierce competition, rapid automation, access to the best talent and disruptive change.

Our highly experienced team becomes your learning and development partner, without the need for a large investment in an internal talent function or retaining expensive business schools or large consultancies.

We always start with an in-depth discovery process to understand your business and leadership requirements, both now and in the future. For all in-company programs, we partner with HR and the business sponsor(s) to clarify your company’s overall talent and leadership strategy, priorities and gaps. Using these insights, we create a tailor-made roadmap to improve the effectiveness and outcomes of your leaders, ensuring they take accountability for their learning.

What does the program cover?

Leadership Accelerators are designed to bring about a step-change in leaders’ performance, motivation and agility by developing:

• Enhanced self-awareness of their strengths, performance risks and areas for improvement.

• Leadership capabilities, including leading with vision and purpose, building and motivating peak performing teams, influencing and inspiring others, giving candid feedback, handling difficult performance conversations, coaching and delegation.

• Change leadership capabilities, including navigating volatile and uncertain times, building employee and stakeholder commitment for change, creating agile learning cultures and tackling resistance and blockers to change.

• Self-management skills, including time and energy management, resilience, conflict management, self-development and mastering your mindset.

• Improved business skills, including strategic and scenario planning in dynamic markets, risk management, versatile problem-solving and boosting innovation.

The programs enable leaders to achieve greater self-awareness, build powerful new leadership capabilities and habits and optimize their individual and team strengths.

Our unique Aware-Act-Adapt-Achieve Approach to Peak Performance enables leaders to apply new insights and skills gained during the learning sessions to their most important business challenges, dilemmas and opportunities.

Highly customized 1-1 coaching during each program provides leaders with a safe and confidential space to improve their self-awareness, tackle challenges and advance their problem-solving, relationships and approach to navigating change. Peer coaching provides additional support, perspective and opportunities for ongoing learning and collaboration long after the program has ended.



Who is the program for?

The program is right for any executive or leader who is responsible for the performance, people and growth of an SME organisation. Participants should also be self-motivated to grow and develop outside their comfort zone.

To ensure high quality, insightful dialogue and strong learning communities, we limit class sizes to a maximum of 12 on both our in-company and open programs.



What’s included?




All Leadership Accelerator programs include:

• Regular progress reviews and check-ins

• Free tools, resources and workbooks, including a free e-book on Positive Leadership

• Invitation to join an online alumni network once leaders have successfully completed the program. This provides opportunities for ongoing networking, learning, and knowledge-sharing.

For in-company programs, we also include a progress report and recommendations for ongoing improvement to HR and senior business sponsor(s) after the program has ended.
