Lead high impact teams, sharpen your vision and drive organisational change

The HQ is a bespoke organisation leadership programme that builds resilient and emotionally attuned leaders so that they have the power to influence teams and drive organisational change.

The programme is built on a 4-Step System: Stop, Pause, Think, Now Act™, a methodology that we have built from evidence-based research, to deliver the results you need for lasting change. It centres on a deep understanding of self-awareness, self-management and social awareness to allow leaders to sharpen their systemic and emotional thinking skills and create lasting change.

The HQ Programme

The HQ consists of 12 immersion days delivered across a 12-month programme where YOUR organisation and its leaders are the sole focus.

In a highly collaborative, interactive atmosphere, your leaders will explore emotional intelligence tools to empower them to perform at their highest level, deliver the goods to the business, while consistently nourishing themselves to maintain performance.

The Programme is for UP TO 20 leaders within your organisation, to allow sufficient interaction and ensure everyone gets individual attention.

Who we work with:

Our clients range from large multi-nationals and global brands to a wide range of smaller organisations who want to drive high performance, increase profit and accelerate growth.

Who should attend:

  • CEOs, Finance Directors, Senior Leaders, Board Directors
  • Sales Managers and Team Leaders
  • Any leader who is open to being challenged and understands that change begins and ends with themselves
  • Master the processes and tools required to unleash the potential in individuals, energise your teams and empower people to achieve consistently higher levels of performance and deliver better bottom-line results.
  • Sharpen your emotional intelligence, renew self-confidence and thrive through uncertainty.
  • Elevate your impact as a leader, practice assertiveness and gain greater focus and clarity.
  • Gain a greater awareness of your own emotional triggers and how they're holding you back in your professional relationships.
  • Create an engaging organisation, where your people are energised to work towards a common vision and purpose, based on shared values.
  • Increase individual and team performance and improve staff retention.
  • Invest in your company’s greatest asset – its people and develop the next generation of senior leaders.
  • Identify and act upon the key drivers that drive profitability and growth.
