The importance of leadership
Great businesses need great leaders. Leaders are not born, they evolve – they are developed and trained, their natural talents nurtured over time. It’s not something to leave to chance.
A great leader must be many things to many people. He or she must be able to inspire, empathise and cajole all at the same time. It’s not easy but the best leaders have one thing in common – they have insight into their own personality and how others view them. This Pathway helps them achieve this vital perspective and provides the behavioural insights that are so crucial in strengthening the position of a leader.
Developing tomorrow’s leaders today
We introduce a practical approach to leadership— leveraging the individual leader’s strengths and offering a clear process to create vision, build alignment and champion execution. The leader will be equipped to:
- Create a compelling vision
- Deliver tangible results
- Create clarity of communication and purpose
- Create a motivated team
- Allow talent to grow and flourish
The essence of management
Management is about planning, delegating, organising and motivating teams of individuals to deliver desired results for the business.
Managers become more effective and adaptable when they understand the impact of their behaviour on the work environment. In turn, the impact that environment has on employee engagement, commitment and productivity makes the difference between excellence and mediocrity.
This Pathway provides the insights to help managers hone their management approach and learn how to communicate more effectively, addressing the different motivational needs of the people they work with.

- More effective management and direction for teams

The foundation of an effective team
Almost everyone in business works as part of a team. Teams can be very productive and motivated… or they can suffer from tension, friction and wasted effort. Teams become more effective when members understand that a successful team harnesses a variety of skills, strengths and styles brought to the team by different team members.
This Pathway helps to improve communication between team members, reduce conflict and help team members understand and value each other’s talents. It is also a powerful foundation for any team undergoing change or re-structuring.
