Poipoia te kākano, kia puāwai

Nurture the seed and it will blossom

No doubt, you’ve got some inspiring leaders within your workplace. We’re not talking about your GMs or CEOs  – these leaders are part of your frontline operational workforce, labourers, and operators.  They are the leaders of tomorrow. You might not yet even be aware of their potential.

The comments we often hear are:

My people are technically great, but before they get promoted to supervisors, I need to grow their people skills

I want to grow my leaders from within the business, but no one steps forward for promotion

I feel like my team lack the confidence to step up.

It’s the perfect time to start thinking about the right learning solution to unlock the potential in your people because they are your greatest asset.

Good leadership starts with self-awareness, which led us to align our leadership pathways with psychologist Daniel Goleman’s thinking around emotional intelligence.  EQ or EI bring together the domains of self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills and relationship management.  Our courses blend this theory and model and bring it to life through reflections, discussions, team building and other experiential activities. This way, participants can easily connect the theory with the day-to-day practical tools.

Our leadership courses

With emotional intelligence as the foundation, we offer several leadership courses in different formats. They all map to the NZQA Level 3 Certificate in Business (Team Leadership).
