We have a comprehensive range of leadership development content workshops that we have developed and been delivering for the public sector as individual workshops and as part of leadership programs.
The topics include but are not limited to:
- Building and Leading High Performance Teams

- Accountability: Building a Performance Culture
Our facilitators and coaches are accredited in an extensive range of psychometric assessment tools (including LSI, HBDI and DiSC).
They are sensitive to the debriefing process and experienced in enabling change. To create the best environment for significant insights we recommend one-on-one debriefs however this is not always necessary and depends on the self-awareness tool used.
Individual or Group Coaching
We can provide one-on-one coaching sessions and/or action learning groups (small group coaching). With action learning groups participants meet for 1.5-2 hours to reflect on the learning and their application of the learning in the workplace.
As part of this process participants develop goals and strategies for practical application of what they have learnt. The group coaching sessions then provide a forum to review how the participants went applying what they have learnt, work through challenges faced in the application and create a supportive environment for the participants.
We can deliver our programs virtually or face-to-face across the whole of Western Australia. We would be happy to discuss with you the most suitable mode of delivery for your program.
We work closely with you to design the program and develop the content to address the particular needs of your organisation. We can assist you in achieving your organisation’s strategic goals and objectives by developing the skills, behaviour and expertise that your organisation requires.
We ensure that our programs are stimulating and challenging for workshop participants. Our programs focus on providing participants with tools and techniques that they can take back into the workplace and implement immediately.

Program Development Process
In order to be absolutely clear on your desired outcomes and expectations we would hold an initial meeting with your key stakeholders to clarify your needs and expectations in detail. We would work collaboratively with you through each stage of the project to ensure that our program delivers on your expectations.
We welcome honest and open input and feedback to guarantee the program is contextually relevant, targeted, high impact and delivers on expectations. We would work to form a strong relationship with you that enables authentic and open communication during the entire project. Throughout the program we will provide feedback to you with regard to any significant trends identified.
Leadership Development Program
The Institute has partnered with TLC Solutions to develop a 3 month Leadership Development Program. The program is aimed at Level 4 to 6 employees who are identified as having high potential for leadership roles.
The objective of the program is to enhance your organisations leadership capacity and to develop emerging leaders within your agency. The program is developed over a 3 month period and comprised of three workshops (half and full day) with an action learning / group coaching session held in between each workshop.
The workshops are structured to meet the needs of the participants and focus on four main areas;
At the conclusion of each workshop, individuals are reviewed and set action plans based on their key learning. The action learning groups provide an opportunity to reflect on how individuals are progressing with their action plans.
