Leadership Development

Today’s leaders need to be masters of change. Anticipating change. Executing change. And guiding teams through it. We equip leaders with the skills to become master change-makers.

Leaders need to remain relevant and we enable them to actively shape the future for themselves, their colleagues and their organisation.

Our Leadership Development System (LDS) is the framework we use to develop customised leadership development programmes. With you we use the LDS to pinpoint the right focus areas for your business and create the necessary components to deliver outcomes at speed.

The LDS looks at leadership through three lenses – leading yourself, leading others and leading a system.

First-time leaders

Moving into your first management position requires many shifts in behaviour and attitude. personally and professionally. In our leadership intervention you will benefit personally and professionally by:

  • Building self-awareness and getting to know what kind of leader you can be
  • Tapping into your strengths, and using them more effectively
  • Developing your own way of connecting and communicating that leaves a positive mark
  • Finding ways to lead others with clarity, passion and purpose
  • Learning methods to motivate, acknowledge and inspire

Senior Leaders

Experienced leaders often find themselves in a rather ‘lonely’ space regarding their leadership practice, as they have relatively few opportunities to confide, share or learn from others.

Our interventions allow leaders to tap into a network of peers who share similar situations and issues. We support them in refreshing their strengths, reflecting on what they know works and challenge them to stay relevant by acquiring and practising new approaches.

Experienced leaders leave our interventions re-energised with latest thinking for they can apply in the ever-changing business world, and reminded of the practises that will never be ‘out of date’.

"CONTRACT designed and facilitate our premium leadership programme for Senior Managers. Their insight into the realm of leadership was incredibly unique, refreshing and challenging. What makes their approach to learning so innovative is that they really promote behavioural change in people."

Sofia Puente, Senior Manager

"I attended a Leadership Workshop hosted by CONTRACT. The workshop was challenging on all levels, facilitated by a trainer with success in business and as a leadership guru. The workshop had ample opportunity to interact with other delegates; these interactions gave a chance to help brainstorm solutions for each other. Through this process, I realised what leadership changes were needed in our organisation."

Frikkie Streicher, Business Development Manager

"The leadership development program held by CONTRACT is one of the best I have participated in. I would emphasise the excellent balance between theory, exercise and practical case studies. As a participant, it is a great opportunity to learn, reflect on real-life situations with others, leading to a deeper understanding of the tools and techniques provided."
