Leadership development

What’s the best pathway to sustained success for every organization?

You guessed it - Leadership development!

An organisation's leadership strategy should be closely aligned with its business strategy and should equip employees with the leadership skills required to implement it.

Our comprehensive leadership development coaching program is extremely beneficial for your business to align your goals, and business strategies with the way you develop your leaders.

The most cost effective leadership development approach is to develop your existing team members into leaders, rather than hiring from outside. The best way to develop leaders is through coaching and mentoring - not training!

Always remember, People Lead Teams.

Developing People to become better leaders, results in better teams.

Better PEOPLE make better Leaders

- Brendan Rogers

Leadership Development Central Coast.

Better PEOPLE, Better Leaders, Better Teams. Better Culture. Better Results.

Our leadership development coaching program is designed to do just that - develop better PEOPLE, who become better Leaders, who lead better teams, resulting in a better culture!

Using our world-first P.E.O.P.L.E. system, we’ll work with you one-on-one to help you develop more effective leadership skills. Our leadership development framework (The P.E.O.P.L.E. system) is designed to connect with ‘on-the-job’ learning as you manage the day-to-day challenges that come from leading a team.

During the program, you’ll learn to apply all elements of The P.E.O.P.L.E. system:

PLANT - build the foundations required for you to thrive as a leader.

EDUCATE - develop your ‘growth mindset’ to become a life-long student of leadership.

OPERATE - learn the skills to operate effectively as a leader.

PRACTICE - learn the 8 key practices of leadership.

LEAD - learn how to lead, consistently.

ELEVATE - learn how to reach the pinnacle of leadership, lifting those around you.


Better PEOPLE. Better Leaders. Better Teams. Better Culture. Better Results.

Creating Confident Leaders in the workplace requires a deliberate and dedicated focus on PEOPLE. That's why, at Leader By Design, our leadership development framework is P.E.O.P.L.E.  After 25+ years in leadership roles across business and sport, our world first P.E.O.P.L.E. system has been built from the ground up based on 'real-life' experience and a perpetual process of self-improvement.

Building better PEOPLE, requires strong foundations. For Leaders to stand strong, they must PLANT both feet on the ground. This means understanding your own strengths and struggles, your motivations, your listening and communication styles, what drives your decisions, and how all these impact you and those around you.

Once you develop the foundation, i.e. PLANT your feet, you can then use what you have learnt to EDUCATE yourself and become a life-long student of leadership. Leveraging the foundations, and linking these to your relationships, experiences and exploring leadership content that aligns with your development needs, underpins the EDUCATE cog in The PEOPLE system and allows you to lead, authentically.

Building better PEOPLE, involves understanding the 'nitty gritty' of how we must OPERATE to lead. Creating standards and seeking clarity and alignment around these standards is critical. This is across our behaviours, performance goals, roles & responsibilities and people processes, as well as how we interact with our team and build a feedback culture. Without the knowledge to OPERATE, you can't lead, effectively.

What we PRACTICE is central to evolving from being a good leader, to becoming a great leader. There are 8 key PRACTICES leaders must become highly competent in. Without these, a leader can never function at their highest leadership potential. It's our consistent daily habits focused around the 8 key PRACTICES that will move you into the leadership stratosphere. Underpinning PRACTICE, is the mindset of progress over perfection.

The disciplines and behaviours to lead are simple. The greatest challenge leaders have is learning to LEAD, consistently. We create a standard for your leadership expectations, and build accountability frameworks to support it. Accountability drives results, and that is how you are ultimately measured as a leader. Through continuous application, you will LEAD with influence.

Lifting those around you to reach their greatest potential, is the pinnacle of leadership. In this cog of The PEOPLE system, we teach Leaders how to 'ELEVATE' others. Doing this ensures continued growth of the leadership capability within your organisation, which should always be a critical element of your leadership development strategy.
