Great Business starts with Great People. Great People are Self Directed.

As the complexity and pressure of the work place increases, the new productivity “super power”is the ability to manage self in every sense. Traditional challenges like disengagement, mediocrity, inefficiency and incompetence, are no longer the primary responsibility of the manager. Each person must now be equipped to take full responsibility for themselves through a process we call Self-Directed Leadership.



The journey starts with discovering each person’s potential, through Gallup’s world-leading online assessment, the Clifton Strengthsfinder®. Unlock hidden talents. Build deeper trust. Lessen conflict. Experience greater fulfilment. Be inspired.



Alignment is simply about everyone being on the same page. We do this by bringing clarity to each person, and each team. Clarity generates meaning, provides direction and improves resilience. Clarity creates the context for Self Directed Leadership.



Knowledge is power, providing the necessary fuel for optimal growth. We equip individuals and teams with the necessary information to understand how to achieve and sustain a Self Directed Leadership state.  We train, educate and facilitate.


“Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not “making friends and influencing people”, that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.”
― Peter F. Drucker
