Programs can be run in-house or externally, for any length of time and for anyone in your organisation.
Described as ‘the most unique opportunity to step out of my comfort zone to see myself, others, my work and leadership in very different ways’, The 15 Disciplines Leadership Programs are life changing.

Professional Development Programs
It has been said that schools are like ships; it takes a long time for them to change course. If this is true, then it is the captain, not the ship, that is taking the time. In this paradigm breaking workshop, you and your team will learn and grow together as you differentiate between policy, strategic thinking, strategy and planning and apply it to your school’s context. You will not only have an authentic and up to date understanding of your school and its relationship with its external environment, you will also have the tools to routinely think strategically to ensure your strategy is relevant and effective.
How to Make the Right Decision, Not the Easy One
In this intensive half day workshop, you and your team will be immersed within Discipline 3 – Be Ethical, to uncover, discuss and debate the conundrums associated with decision making. You will receive a framework for making ethical decisions and tools to use when justifying those decisions to others, despite the way they are perceived. Justice and fairness, social acceptance, harm minimisation and precedent setting all feature in this highly practical experiential learning and growth opportunity.
Success Breeds Success
Leaders are ultimately measured by their productivity. This collaborative workshop spanning one full day, includes a series of theory and practical experiences that each reveal the disciplines required to plan, delegate and adapt. Walk away at the end of the day with a toolbox full of ideas, thinking frameworks and methodologies to ensure you are planning to succeed, establishing and maintaining control and orienting yourself to adapt your plan if and when required.
If Life at Work isn’t Fulfilling, You’re Doing it Wrong
There are four factors people are likely to not talk to you about and will use as their reference for deciding whether to stay or go; a lack of justice and fairness; little to no recognition or reward; poor communication; all work and no play. These four essential conditions that impact people’s quality of life will impact your productivity and quality of work. In this full day program, we unpack four of the fifteen disciplines in a highly interactive workshop to give your school staff the tools for living a high quality of life in a high-performance environment.
Building Team Capacity
If you don’t leave a team in better condition than you found it, what was the point of doing anything at all? The hallmarks of a great team are its unity in spite of its diversity, its overall social capital and its ability to continually improve. This one-day workshop gives a profound insight into the final three disciplines; Generate Unity, Uphold Standards and Foster Learning – the imperatives of a productive team culture. Your team will participate in activities and theoretical discussions during which they will discover how their own team performance can easily be elevated.
