Our approach to create world-class leaders

Insights on best practice and knowledge are powerful, but they are not enough in the journey to achieving the full potential of leaders.

Too often leadership development support stops at knowledge. People leave with a positive intent to shift their behaviour, but little if anything changes. In our experience, making a sustained shift in our impact and effectiveness as leaders requires a heavy focus on experiential learning, practice and feedback.

Leadership is no different to any other skill. Achieving a high level of mastery depends on combining self-awareness against a benchmark of best practice, with purposeful practice in a safe environment.

The programme

Over the course of a 16-week programme, the Leadership Skills Programme provides an immersive experience, from the workshops themselves to the programme support before, during and after each workshop.


  • 5 virtual or in-person workshops over the ‘16-week programme’ that include;
  • Case studies from a world class network of speakers and high-performance experts, gleaning insights from real life experiences, both from inside and outside of sport.
  • Coaching to hone practical skills that will provide your leaders with the ability to manage high performing individuals and teams.
  • Peer integration from different sports and countries in the industry to diversify the discussion and thinking within the group.

Programme support

  • Recommended content ahead of each workshop to deepen learning around leadership skills covered in the series.
  • Insights, actions and key takeaways after each workshop.
