Courageous Leaders specialises in leader development programs, leadership coaching, and mentoring for both existing and emerging leaders. These business leaders are people open to learning, willing to challenge their habits and committed to developing the business leadership styles that reflect the kind of leaders they really want to be.
Guiding and coaching participants brings a level of discipline to their thinking so they can identify their "personal summit" and capitalise on their personal strengths and leadership qualities.
Here are some comments from past leader development program participants and leadership coaching and mentoring clients:
"I wanted to express my thanks to Mandy and Leah and to let you know that you have made a significant contribution to Sanitarium across all levels of the organisation. You have challenged our thinking and behaviour in such a profound way. The anecdotal evidence of the changes that are being made within individuals and teams continues to be seen and talked about – the ‘visible’ differences are being noted by people within the programme and those with whom they interact. For someone who has been at Sanitarium for a long time, I can say that this leadership programme feels like a watershed event in our organisation’s history. You have given us the tools and the courage to step up to the leadership challenge and to embrace a new future for our company - thank you for facilitating such incredible learning with such a wide range of our leaders."
- Lucie Newport, Learning & Development Consultant, Sanitarium
" I can say that our time together, with the work you guys did with us, has changed my life for the better. Both at work and home, relationships aren't so scary anymore and the mask has come down more often than it is up. I'm not totally Mr Blue by any stretch but I am no longer Mr Red only!
Having open conversations, honest and caring, has certainly made my department a much more enjoyable place to work, not only for me but for all of the team here. It was only this morning that one of my senior operators was talking with me about some work and he commented how things have changed here, how he looks forward to coming to work each day and that there is a "family" type atmosphere in the Department. I'm just pumped up and jumping for joy on the inside when I hear things like that!
There certainly are changes happening here with more in the wind and not everything is set in stone as yet but I'm quietly confident that things will work out positively and that I'll have a big part to play whatever happens.
You know I have my personal brand cards sitting in front of my computer screen and I refer to them at least weekly - they are some of the best gifts I have ever received. I am grateful for the experience and the time spent with our group, Leah and Mandy. You guys released a dormant part buried deep within and just gave me a chance to grow a little more. I'm on the journey and hope never to stop..."
- Don Mitchell, Production Manager, Sanitarium
"I just wanted to express my thanks at the very insightful and empowering conference last week.
You have helped me gain more confidence, be true to my personality traits and ensure that my values are not compromised as I aim towards finding my “ideal self”.
Sydney was a fantastic opportunity to engage with so many peers in similar situations and I know I certainly gained a lot from the discussion groups – not to mention the dinners!
Thank you again and I hope we get a chance to meet in the near future."
- Debbie, AIN Leadership Conference
"Some time ago you mentioned a particular challenge was to ‘get in the room’. The challenge was how does one get from walking past a meeting room where senior management were meeting and making particular decisions to actually being invited to be in the meeting and part of the decision making process.
Am pleased to tell you that recently I have been invited to these meetings and am now in the room. The challenge now is to stay there!
Am taking on board your advice of realising my potential and I thank you for your guidance and encouragement."
