Our approach to leading change is simple:
We focus on you and your people.

If there’s one thing we can all depend on, it’s change.

Futurists claim that we are likely to see more change in the next 15 years than we have in the past 150 years. But with change, comes opportunity. So, with the right team members - Change Agents with the appropriate knowledge and skills - your business can thrive in a rapidly changing world.

The Manager Acceleration Program provides the structure, tools, and support that gives participants' a new perspective and a fresh way of thinking — and keeps them on track to turn their goals into reality. 

What is a Change Agent? The individual that undertakes the task of initiating and managing change in a business is known as a 'change agent'. Change agents can be managers or employees who have the desire, knowledge and skills to focus appropriate time and energy on business effectiveness and improvement.

With the accelerating pace of change, every business needs effective 'change agents' to help implement changes towards improvements and new concepts or ideas - and they achieve this by driving positive energy, and intentionally leading others in a way that fosters well-being and increases business performance.

7 Key Ingredients of the Manager Acceleration Program

Manager Acceleration Program equips leaders — and, in turn equips your business as a whole, to become more 'change-capable.’ We do this by using seven key ingredients which collectively impacts the beliefs, mindset, and behaviours that amplifies people’s ability to adapt to, and lead, in a fast changing world.

1. Learning Agility Assessment – Personal development assessment helps unpack what is limiting any progress to learn and grow. To be at our best, we need to firstly understand what could be a constraint.

2. 9 Impactful Workshops – a space where rich knowledge is delivered and powerful discussions are facilitated. This is where the learning is accelerated leading to deep insights and paradigm shifts. 

3. Pre-Post Workshop Material – 30 mins. To get ready for the learning it is important to prime the mind. Participants may also find the answers to some of the current challenges in the business.

4. Reflection Sessions with the Sponsor – This opens the door to great discussions – reflective and insightful conversations that would not normally happen. 

5. Business Improvement Project – This moves participants out of the daily operational mindset to explore an improvement opportunity and apply the knowledge and skills that are learnt on the program.

6. Coaching – Coaching supports the application of the learnings and challenges the thinking to accelerate growth and development.

7. Presentation Session – at the conclusion of the program participants present their key learnings and an overview of their business improvement project.  Presenting to an audience clearly and confidently is a valuable skill – a skill that is key to being an effective change agent.

The Power of Learning With Others

Everyone you meet has something valuable to teach you.

Participants not only learn from the workshops, online material, business improvement project and the coaching – they also get the support from other participants in the program.

By sharing their insights online and in the group discussion they learn how to navigate themselves around challenging issues.

All participants want to learn and by generously sharing ideas and their industry knowledge – everyone gets a real in-depth experience whilst on the program.

It is not often that industries come together to talk about current and real issues in business. We encourage participants to share their insights and reflections with the online learnings and group discussions.

Creating a learning culture will ensure your business is moving forward.
