The value in keeping your leadership learning fresh.
Our on-going mission is to support business leaders to be the best that they can be. Having invested in LEAD™, at their graduation we recommend to the Alumni to be watchful that they do not let their learning tail off. The value in keeping their leadership learning fresh is priceless.
Adults learn by reflecting on experiences and applying that learning. Our Alumni have a toolbox from LEAD™ of models, techniques and approaches that can help them develop themselves, their teams and their organisations on an on-going basis. These ‘tools’ require continual sharpening to remain as effective as they can be. Sometimes a timely reminder of what is in the toolbox is all that is required.
LEAD+ is a membership program for graduates of LEAD™. Designed for the Alumni, LEAD+ provides the space for LEAD™ graduates to keep their leadership learning fresh and meet with peers from different cohorts, extending their professional networks.
Once again, they can do that in the company of people who have been through LEAD™ and whose thoughts and experiences they value.
Peers meet every few months in each other’s companies to take time out from their busy day to stop, reflect and ‘work on’ the real-life opportunities and challenges that they face. They provide feedback to the host company on what they observe during the visit. This generates many ideas and insights which the host can consider to improve their business. Each member of the group receives coaching from the other members in an action learning format. This supports the member being coached to solve their issues while at the same time helping the other members to resolve their own challenges.
A diagnostic framework allows the Alumni to benchmark their year-on-year progress. All have access to ‘The Forum’ – a confidential online space where private discussions can continue and resources are shared.

LEAD+ has been a great sounding board – a regular ‘check in’ and opportunity to share thoughts, ideas, and concerns in a supportive and confidential environment. Listening, learning and reflecting with members of the alumni is always a cathartic and inspiring experience.
Managing Director, Optimising IT
LEAD+ is a great way to keep the LEAD™ Learnings in your mind, as well as a dedicated time to interact with fellow business leaders in a safe and supportive space to discuss ideas, challenges, opportunities and to hold up a mirror to your own business for independent and constructive input. I look forward to the days and to seeing the cohort where we’ve built strong and supportive relationships led by expert coaches who facilitate and ensure we also get another viewpoint.
Managing Director, Forge Motorsport
LEAD+ has been incredibly beneficial. It provides me with regular contact with other Directors and Company owners who face the same business challenges we all do. To share our issues and offer words of knowledge, advice and encouragement in our virtual board room has been invaluable. It has allowed me to map out our business direction and tackle any issues with confidence.
