The Eight Steps for a Team Build
The Smart Leader Leadership Framework

Build collaborative and aligned high performing teams.

All team leaders, and all team members, across the organisation, from the CEO to the front line, will:

  • understand the same leading edge leadership concepts;

  • use the same leadership language, and leadership tools;

  • have confidence that the tools are based on best practice organization psychology science;

  • possess the most simple and effective, integrated team performance tools.


You can deploy with one to 10,000 teams

Create empowering workplaces through leadership excellence.

We boost our clients to get more sales

Many government departments are required to provide annual engagement surveys for compliance purposes. We are well placed to run these on behalf of clients, deploying our digital platform, logistics and analytics. Doing so removes the burden of this administrative process for our clients’ OD department.

This annual review can be a cornerstone of the monthly pulse process that provides senior management to keep an eye on the wellness and engagement of team and employees.

  • Easy to deploy and cascade throughout entire organisation;
  • Provides CEO with an enterprise dashboard that enables CEO to keep an eye on the culture and engagement through the business;
  • Courses and tools enable employees to learn together and discuss important leadership topics;
  • Cost effective solution for leader development and for onboarding and engaging employees and developing their team player skills;
  • Common leadership language and tools throughout entire organisation.
  • Provides a monthly monitoring of quality of leadership, culture, employee engagement, and risk pilot lights (bullying and harassment) that can be viewed at monthly or quarterly board meetings;
  • People analytics are displayed in an easy-to-understand multi-team, all-of-organisation Enterprise Dashboard in the Boardroom;
  • Mitigates the reputation risks of Chairs and directors who, otherwise, would only find out in the news media that their organisation had a toxic culture;
  • Identifies and quantifies the extra shareholder value that would accrue from improving the leadership and culture of the organisation.

You can deploy with as much or as little as you want.

The Smart Leader courses and tools are the most comprehensive on the market. Some of our clients want to use courses only. Others use tools only. Some want to go for train-the-trainer accreditation and adopt the DIY approach. Others want to involve our Smart Leader accredited practitioners to support their OD/L&D. Some large clients deploy the “Full Monty” – online Team Builder and Team Player courses, the full digital tool platform, along with OD/:&D training and accreditation. We put the choice in the hands of OD/L&D and we will empower them in their roles to operate in the way that suits their particular situation.

Our approach is to align all leadership concepts, tools, and processes across the entire organisation, so everyone is ‘singing from the same songbook’.

A comprehensive, aligned suite of courses, coaching clinics, and dashboards, to enable team leaders to build empowering work experiences, and high performing teams.

The level of engagement within your organisation is the foundation on which performance is built.
