Individual Program

An individualised program specifically designed around your personal strengths that is highly experiential and incorporates a 360 assessment tool to create instant awareness, development of new competencies for managing existing and future leadership opportunities and challenges, plus exercises to build your leadership mental muscle so you can achieve more through leading more effective.

Raising Awareness – Creating The Imperative and Understanding For Change

We conduct a 360-degree assessment involving your peers, direct reports and managers, to provide a comprehensive understanding of how your leadership is perceived, how effective you are and where you excel.

The first step is to develop your understanding not just of who you are, but also how others perceive you. Discovering your leadership strengths and weaknesses, as viewed by your colleagues, puts you in the best position to become an effective leader.

To grow and develop as a leader you need to be acutely aware of your strengths, weaknesses, and beliefs. However, unavoidable bias can cloud your self-awareness, so you must create experiments to cut through your personal bias and see yourself objectively.

A brief introduction establishes the layout of the program, paving the way for an open and safe environment where you can share openly, freely reflect and receive the feedback essential to performing effectively. This includes understanding the high level of accountability required for you to achieve big results in this program.

You then take the crucial first step towards becoming a more effective leader by completing an online, 360-degree assessment of yourself. The comprehensive process will leave you with valuable feedback from peers, managers and direct reports. The results include both qualitative and quantitative information about your leadership skills and capabilities.

We then explore your holistic assessment results and provide feedback in a 90-minute, one-on-one session. By going through quantitative elements of your results we can get a clear picture of your leadership style and thought patterns. Qualitative feedback can help us to identify if and how your behaviours are different towards different groups or people within your business. We also aim to identify beliefs that stem from your own life. This groundwork establishes your strengths and allows you to map your projected development over the course of the program.

Weeks 3 & 4

We visit the concept of personal accountability and explore how every goal you set is a contract with your future self.

This involves learning techniques that make your contracts hard to break, such as being highly specific and making the terms public. After defining your contracts, you are free to create a development plan that is anchored by how you ideally want people to experience you as a leader, along with a tangible list of start-and-stop behaviours, crafted in a way that you can make individual commitments to each behaviour. We’ll work to refine these and ensure each starting and stopping behaviour aligns with your leadership strengths.

We investigate your fundamental beliefs and assumptions that operate unconsciously and manifest as behaviours that limit your effectiveness. We explore the fears that feed your resistance to change while simultaneously formulating counter commitments to protect your core beliefs in times of professional growth.

We then design and implement your own SMART experiments (Safe, Modest, Actionable, Research-Focused and Time-Bound). The purpose of each experiment is to test your beliefs, so you can shift from being shaped by your unconscious belief system, to consciously shaping your belief system and the world around you.

Testimonial
I participated in Chris's Successful Entrepreneurship Workshop run for TiE Melbourne members. In Monthly meetings over a year we were guided through looking at our purpose in Business, Positioning, the Customer funnel etc.

It was very valuable, Chris is very encouraging but challenges thoughtfully when appropriate. He facilitates workshops with a light touch and a steady hand. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
