The Leadership Mindset Programme

Building leadership capabilities for mid-career managers.

“Leadership Mindset is an absolute must for everyone. I’ve been to many professional training courses, but this has been the best. It’s engaging, participatory, thought-provoking and hands-on.”  Ed Hendrikse, Dean Manurewa High School


Refreshed programme for 2020 is here!

Success story

“This programme is probably one of the most practical learning experiences I’ve had in my career. We were guided through different leadership constructs, which challenge traditional views. I was surprised how much I could take immediately into my challenging real world and start applying even before the end of the programme – that’s the true test of its value.”

Keith Linforth | General Manager Customer Operations | Vocus Communications

“The Leadership Mindset programme has enabled my doctors to move beyond their well-honed ‘medical expert’ mindset. They are more creative and explore new ways of working – leading us to better meet the needs of those we serve.”

Willem Landman | Clinical Director | Emergency Department Waitemata DHB
