Old school learning and development programmes just don’t work and waste time and money. Research claims that individuals retain only 10% of traditional learning. This means, that 90% of your training budget is wasted.
Our research shows that by using our proven AURA approach, middle and senior managers retain more than 70% of learning and can apply it sustainably. Our learning programmes start with an Assessment, and take individuals through a process of Unlearning, Relearning and Application, to help them act with purpose.
Bite-sized leadership and management modules run alongside one-to-one coaching, to ensure that individuals unlearn old habits, change their behaviour and have the confidence to apply what they have learned.
Experiential unlearning and coaching, supports individuals and teams with their personal development, accelerates their careers and improves engagement.
We have designed, delivered and facilitated leadership training for ABN-Amro Bank, Deloitte, Cisco Systems, GE Capital, UBS Bank and Northern Trust, amongst others.

shift mindsets through behavioural change, enhancing leadership competencies to meet evolving expectations
grow into new management roles in the first 100 days
stay on track, challenge strategy, develop goals and align efforts towards achieving them
achieve their full potential by challenging thinking, goals and willingness to grow and by offering unique insights that broaden awareness
build strong leadership styles, skills, focus, confidence and management capability; helping to manage conflict, crisis or stress
develop themselves within the personal and organisational context, preparing them for (role) changes
