The Leadership System™

Developing the leaders your organisation needs to drive change and improve business performance

A whole systems approach

The Leadership System™ is a complete leadership development approach which has been designed to unlock organisational performance and growth through the building of collective leadership strength. It is based on the Universal Model of Leadership and supported by research conducted on over 50,000 leaders and employees worldwide, proving the correlation between building leadership effectiveness and improving business performance.

“Effective, collective leadership is the single most important competitive and strategic advantage that cannot be copied.”

Mark Fields, President of Ford Motors

The full Leadership System™ program begins with the initial discovery and diagnosis with planned communications across the organization. As providers, we administer the Leadership Circle Profile™ for the selected cohort and schedule all subsequent and related sessions.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the most comprehensive leadership 360 assessment based on the Universal model of leadership. To explore further, you can start by completing the self-assessment below which will introduce you to some of the terminology and key concepts.


The Promise of Leadership™

Participants attend a half-day or full day workshop that frames a collective view of leadership functioning as the kick-off for our Leadership System™. The facilitator embeds the Core Leadership Framework™ to guide all subsequent development work delivering Leadership Circle Profile feedback in a group context. It begins the feedback assimilation process and organizes the next steps.

One-on-one Coaching

Every engagement in the Leadership System™ is enhanced by one-on-one coaching. The payback for leaders is worth the investment. The combination of peer cohort coaching with one-on-one leadership coaching has a multiplier effect on the investment; individualising and deepening the personal development experience. This has proven to affect real and long-lasting behaviour change needed to drive business performance.
