supporting leaders to better trust themselves, in order to better lead their teams

Is your culture:

  • Undergoing a cultural transformation?
  • Mired in burdensome red tape and bureaucracy?
  • Experiencing high absenteeism and/or turnover?
  • Prone to ignoring employee concerns?
  • All about tasks, not people?
  • Focused on leadership principles and values around trust?

Are your leaders:
  • Led by technical experts with gaps in their people leadership skills?
  • Heavily task focused that leaders overlook spending time with their people?
  • Second guessing themselves and fearful of making a decision?
  • Defensive when it comes to receiving feedback on their performance?
  • Missing opportunities to connect with people on the job?
  • Floundering in their leadership because they have received minimal leadership training?

The Trusted Leader leadership training program begins the process of helping leaders and managers across your organisation understand how creating a thriving, trusted culture starts with them. They will receive some tools to help them take control of improving their leadership, as well as providing the time and space to talk more deeply about what it takes to be a trusted leader

We need trusted leaders who support their employees and can be relied on to do the right thing.

The objective is for leaders to focus on how they are building themselves as a trusted leader. Key to this training program is helping leaders further develop their self-awareness and understanding of how they are perceived as a leader. Self-awareness has been found to be the most important capability to develop. It is key to being trusted by your people

This is essential training for new leaders and those who have received limited leadership training. For more advanced leadership training, refer to the Trusted Teams Leadership Program.


After the training, leaders will spend more time working with their people and making time for more meaningful communication. They will know what they can control and what they can’t.
They will be more confident in being a leader and understand the behaviours they need to work on to be the future leader their people need them to be, as well as what steps they need to take. They will start the journey to move their team into a better and more sustainable performance zone.
