'The High Performance Leadership Program has been the best program I have ever done. I have grown both personally and professionally. Best of all, I have made incredible cultural changes across my organisation, which has lifted the performance of our entire team. As a charity, our reach and impact has grown as a direct result of this program. What’s the secret sauce? A perfect blend of quality content, expert facilitation, hands-on learning and access to a group of exceptional humans who develop together.'

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.

Leading Teams’ experienced facilitators understand that while ‘knowing’ about improving teams is important, knowing ‘how to’ is what delivers results.

That’s the difference.

Our programs are tailor-made for each client; there is no ‘one size fits all approach’.

And at Leading Teams, we practice what we preach. We implement the Performance Improvement Program within our own team. Because of this, we consistently achieve high performance and remain leaders in our field.

Leading Teams has been developing high performing teams and leaders for over 25 years. Today we are a team of 15 facilitators with offices across Australia, and collectively we have over 120 years of experience in the leadership development space.
