High Performance Leadership Testimonial

Hear from Danica Corbett from Nodifi of her experience in our High Performance Leadership Program.

High Performance Leadership Program


The High Performance Leadership program uses Leading Teams models of leadership and team development to equip participants with the understanding and practical tools required to be a high performing leader within their organisation.


This program is suitable for individuals that wish to develop their leadership skills in a supportive yet challenging environment.

Program Delivery

The High Performance Leadership program comprises six full days of interactive workshops, usually delivered over 6-8 months.

The program will commence on 24 October 2023 with dates and composition of subsequent sessions will be agreed between members of the group on day 1.

The delivery of the program is flexible, with sessions tailored to address the specific needs of the participants.

Program Environment

High Performance Leadership is a program of practical and experiential learning, delivered by Leading Teams’ expert facilitators.

As well as offering a learning opportunity, the program creates a forum for the discussion of leadership and the creation of peer networks among the group. Participants will reflect on their individual leadership practice to identify areas for development. They will have the opportunity to apply the tools and models to their leadership practice between sessions and discuss the outcomes at the next meeting.

All sessions involve the discussion of workplace matters raised by program participants. This real-life, action-based learning approach enables the sharing of experiences and ideas between group members and fosters strong networks and relationships that will deliver genuine workplace improvement.

At Leading Teams we focus on dynamics, that is, the way people interact and the behaviours we model, reward and challenge.  We believe a high performing team has the following four fundamentals:

  1. 1.A clear, understood and accepted common purpose
  2. 2.A behavioural framework that has been developed by and agreed to by the team
  3. 3.Strong professional relationships built on trust and respect
  4. 4.A process for the ongoing review of our team and ourselves against the behavioural framework
