16 Week Leadership Course

Professional Development In Leadership and Communications

This Zoom Live Video 16 Week Programme is created to provide senior leaders, middle leaders and emerging leaders with practical tools and strategies for building stronger professional relationships that deliver outstanding outcomes to all stakeholders. When we challenge our core beliefs and practices we risk colliding into ideas that can bring innovation and momentum to our vision and goals. This programme will ask questions that will go deeply into our ideology of what leadership really is and how we can harness the power of our key resources to bring a huge change to our desired outcomes.

The programme includes self-reflection work and will be an estimated two hours per week.

I worked with John over a period of 8 sessions on developing my Leadership skills. It is by far the best training I have done, getting down to the essence of what true leadership is and how to use it to make a real difference in schools. John encouraged me to think about and reflect deeply on my own leadership capabilities and what I need to do to be a much better leader. The lessons learnt will be with me for a lifetime. I thoroughly recommend working with him. Brendon Anderson, Learning Leader, Frankley School

Attending John’s course with my Leadership team was very valuable. It gave us the opportunity to develop a shared understanding of leadership and also the space to reflect on how best to lead our RTLB Cluster.  John’s delivery style was inspirational as well as challenging and helped us to grow both individually and as a team.  Thanks John. Robin Bonnar Cluster Manager RTLB North Shore Cluster 4

Thank you very much for offering such an inspiring two days. Peppered with inspirational quotes, real life experiences and video clips your PLD was motivational and immensely practical.  We can not recommend your PLD highly enough. It ranks amongst the very best we have attended, and participated in,  for its overall value, presentation and quality of content. It was also thoroughly enjoyable. Ngā mihi, nā Anne Mackintosh PRINCIPAL Greerton Village School

George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying “The single biggest issue in communication is the illusion it has taken place at all”. 

Communication remains as one of the key drivers for building successful teams. Leaders who cannot communicate well struggle to get buy-in and move people to align with their vision.

The dysfunction we encounter is driven almost entirely by poor communication and poorly communicated expectations.

I simply say that great leadership and great communication are synonymous terms… you cannot have one without the other. The number one method of fixing the broken bits will cost you nothing and is so simple yet we fail to lay hold of the simple keys. This programme will empower you to become the leader everyone wants to serve and attach to.

Communication is a skill. Leadership is a profession. We deliver a highly practical How-To programme that delivers tools and strategies for building fantastic communication that will drive your team forward further and faster.

In a tech-centric communication world, real and accurate communication that builds relationships is becoming diminished not increased. We look at how the science and phycological research can help build outstanding communication and balance the losses of the tech revolution.
