Influencing Results | Persuade with Power

  • The power of persuasion. We all want it and need it. In today’s organisations – change agents are assets who have influential impact over the masses without formal titles. They spread ideas quickly by listening, aligning and concisely communicating. In this research fueled lab, you’ll receive scientific methods to convince anybody of your ideas. You will leave with a 3-step model to transform your future meetings into artful interactions – that knock your desired results out of the park. You will walk away eager to practice these effective tips on friends, family and clients.

Maximising your Connections | Enhance Business Relationships

  • COVID spotlighted the connected-ness of our world.
    The quality and quantity of our relationships determine our success. Advocacy, Mentor-ship, Sponsorship, Networking have never been more important. It’s time to maximise your relationships and embed new modes into today’s way of working.
    In this self-reflective lab, we will examine your key stakeholders, your habits and your opportunities to strategically expand your exposure.
    You will leave with practical tips to increase your relationship quotient score, in order to accelerate your strategic goals.

Positive Perspective | Prioritise & Focus

  • When you walk into a meeting – what do you notice first and where does your focus stay? Your thoughts in these initial moments set up the trajectory for success or disappointment in your next meeting, day, or week. It’s a ripple effect and you can control it. High performers train their brain to focus on positives, potential and possibility. In this interactive lab, you will learn about your ‘natural-focus’ tendencies and build methods to enhance these. You will leave with a new perspective and a feeling of excitement about your future at work and home!

Command your Confidence | Demonstrate Conviction

  • Self-belief is ‘behind the curtain’ – of confidence. To lead we need to believe. As subject matter experts – commanding our confidence can be easy. What matters is when we don’t have the answers, or our nerves distract us. How do you tap into and project confidence then? When clients and colleagues assess your conviction within seven seconds. Join us in this dynamic lab – discover your own hidden mindset, command your own confidence and plan to leverage it when you need it most! You will leave a Superhero – ready to take on the world with implementable tips for your next high stakes business interactions.

Know Yourself | Rediscover your Strengths

  • Knowing your strengths is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your organisation. Knowledge is power. Self-awareness is accelerated power. Whilst it’s natural to fix ‘our opportunities/gaps’, research illustrates the immense benefit of diving further into our strengths to maximise business impact. In this insightful lab, we leverage Marcus Buckingham’s world-renowned StrengthsFinder research to spotlight your key talents and ensure you use them daily.  You will leave with personalised insights and inspiration to stand in your uniqueness.

Trust Yourself | Tune into Instinct

  • Trust is a highly sort after commodity in business. We are slow to give it sometimes, most of all to ourselves. Our gut instincts point us in a certain direction – but our minds make us question. Negative thought spirals trap our momentum – paralysing us with self-doubt. It takes calmness and awareness to tune into your inner instincts. Practice and courage allow leaders to fully step into their true-ness. In this meaningful lab, you’ll learn about your fears, triggers and potential barriers that get in the way of trusting yourself. You will be provided with individualised strategies for quietening those negative inner voices – and leave with a feeling of conviction and confidence to stand tall.

Be Yourself | Authenticity & Vulnerability

  • To be true to you, takes courage. We hear examples of authentic leaders but unless you’ve personally experienced authentic role models it can be tough to emulate. We want others to be genuine, yet often create barriers to being genuine ourselves. Being yourself takes daily effort, vulnerability and strength of character. And when you truly do it – a free state of being and leading follows. In this thought-provoking lab, we look at your authenticity and leverage individuality in the way you maximise results.

Bounce Back Boldly | Resiliency Disciplines

  • Life is 10% reality and 90% how you deal with it. When you encounter the unavoidable bumps in life – how do you respond? With the shift to virtual offices and the blur between work and home, our motivation and energy has been tested. High performers utilise a daily resiliency discipline. In this exercise orientated lab, you’ll receive resourceful strategies to maintain your focus and bounce-back effectively.  You will learn the core internal and external drivers of productivity and shift how you focus on your goals. You will leave feeling energised – armed with enough tips to dazzle your friends and clients!

Uncomfortable Conversations | Calm Conflict

  • We experience difference of opinion everyday – yet often it’s a roadblock to our work. Navigating these differences effectively is critical. What do you say next? How do you plan to resolve conflict? How do you avoid emotional triggers? How do you gain agreement? These are common struggles for us all. There’s no perfect way to solve conflict, but there are the 3 P’s – Prep, Purpose, Poise. In this unique, role-play lab, we calm conflict by showing you the tips. You’ll listen to work disagreements to see which responses work best. You will leave with a step-by-step guide to prep and execute uncomfortable conversations. This will give you enhanced confidence to conduct solution-orientated dialogues.

Inspire your Team | Motivate for Performance

  • The way we interact with our team members has evolved. Where once we dropped by desks to share project goals or feedback, now we schedule Zooms or compose group communications. As leaders, inspiring your team to achieve results is now less spontaneous, more structured and potentially transactional. But, at the heart – inspiration is a people business.  We need creative ways to motivate your team to high performance and deliver visionary messages.  In this practical lab, you’ll analyse your team’s routines, strategic goals and talents in order to plan ahead.  You will learn the drivers that create team cohesiveness, goal focus and intrinsic motivation. You will leave with a plan – feeling motivated to tap into your team strengths.

Centred Decision Making

  • Fear often drives our decision-making. This is amplified during times of stress or uncertainty i.e.. COVID times. Research shows that our decision making isn’t as objective as we think. Yet, we make on average 35,000 decisions per day. Our brain is often overwhelmed and leads us astray.  Do you have an objective process for making your high-stake decisions at work or home? Is it effective? How are you evaluating your outcomes? Join this highly practical lab to discover the three most common errors made, and how to avoid them.  You’ll leave with an efficient format that enhances your everyday decision-making, so you experience even better results.

Turning Uncertainty into Opportunity

  • What happens when we experience unexpected change at work or home? Many of us resist. Our brain perceives the unknown as a threat – and we are often slow to adjust – costing unnecessary stress, lost time and decreased results. It doesn’t matter if this is simply a new process, project or leadership opportunity. We get stuck. COVID has taught us about the importance of agility – in every aspect of our lives. Now it’s time to refresh on how you can move ahead. In this focussed lab, you’ll learn about the five stages of change and identify your current state. You’ll experience a powerful exercise to shift your thinking from stuck – to moving towards opportunity.

Positively Leading Yourself

  • What makes one leader more effective than another? It’s the age-old question and there are a million answers. After coaching thousands of leaders across 3 continents, we found a simple theme. Leaders lead best when they know these 3-elements: 1. Themselves 2. Their Operating System 3. Their Counter-habits. Enhancing this knowledge and using it in a positive way allows excellence in leadership. This thought-provoking lab will compare your leadership style, and analyse your energy source and negative thought spirals. Finally, it’ll build upon your effective habits with implementable suggestions that enhance the way you successfully lead others.

Maintaining Motivation

  • Successful people are born motivated. Motivation is mind over matter. Two common myths that are completely untrue. Motivation is incredibly individual and you need personalised strategies. This lab unlocks your individual beliefs, discovers your battery source and analyses your current re-energising discipline. We’ll examine your productivity at both a granular and high level – so you can match yourself to one of the five motivation styles. Finally, with this individualised diagnosis, you can select from 14 practical tips provided.  Each tip takes only 2-minutes and will enhance your daily drive and performance.

Wonder Woman Leadership

  • Calling all Senior female leaders – come join our Wonder Women Leadership Lab! All women are Wonder Women – we are CEO’s, CFO’s, CTO’s, CIO’s, CMO’s in our homes and offices – we juggle many roles. Many of us do so seamlessly – flying like superhero’s at extraordinary speed. But when do we pause and reflect on our achievements? With 8.1% of the Fortune 500 CEO’s being female – there are more Superheroes out there ready to claim their power. Do you know what gives you the strength, drive & resilience to keep achieving? This lab examines your inner superhero strength, and celebrates and channels it -– so you can drive even greater impact and success. You’ll leave feeling revitalised, and armed with strategies to drive greater personal and professional leadership success.
