For organisations that want leaders who focus on priorities and integrated team performance.

For professionals who want to get the best for their business.



Planning is a core leadership responsibility

Leaders plan at different levels, from the whole of organisation to individual business units. (Individual performance planning is covered in the Leading Performance Boost Program.) This requires the capability to think comprehensively about the different dimensions required for a balanced, relevant and focussed plan.

Can a complex a business be simplified?

It can’t but the way we think about it can. Applying an interrelated functions framework over the business enables people to see how it all fits together. People can deal more easily with the complex details of any particular part of the business without losing sight of how it fits together. This makes it possible for a balanced and coordinated approach to business, even in times of major change.

The Performance Panel

The interrelated functions framework that this program uses is the Performance Panel and its subordinate frameworks. These frameworks help participants explore how they can lead and plan for key business functions and responsibilities.

Integrated Program Elements

The program combines layers to integrate the different avenues of learning available in organisations.

“You have a budget, but do you have the action plan the budget should represent? We see countless cases where the numbers are assembled painstakingly and presented expertly but have little to do with the reality of running the business. A one-year operating plan sets forth a template for achievement. It synchronises all of the organisation’s parts and links them with the strategy and people processes.”

Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan

Boost programs integrate different avenues of learning and development:

This balance provides your organisation with effective solutions to your in-house developmental needs.

The programs provide frameworks, research and data applied to real organisational challenges. These give your leaders and teams practical options for working together to build wellbeing and productivity in your organisation.

The programs adapt their priorities and content to support the senior leadership priorities of your organisation. This adaptability, combined with the practical focus on effective action, increases their value to your organisation as a structured but responsive boost to your performance.


Programs are delivered at your premises or a suitable venue of your choice.

Programs are adjusted as needed. The experiential content is designed so learning focuses on current business challenges and priorities.

Regional programs can be provided for groups distributed across rural and remote regions. A condensed program which combines face to face and on-line delivery can be designed to reduce travel costs between local centres.
