Experience & Clients

Our Experience & Expertise

For almost four decades Leaderskill has focused on helping leaders and teams perform at their best. Our unique programs have been successful with clients and consultants in private and public sectors, across Health, Government, Universities, Industry, Finance, Information Technology and Community organisations.

Our experts have designed and implemented leadership, 360 feedback and employee survey programs ranging from experiential leadership training to strengths-based team facilitation. As innovators in the field, we specialise in designing and delivering 360 feedback driven professional development and team facilitation using an Appreciative Inquiry (AI) approach to improve communication and openness and create engagement. These development programs that incorporate unique 360 feedback and organisational surveys are often large and continue over years.

We continually look for best practices in helping people achieve lasting change in their work, and we continually innovate and learn from our clients to provide solutions that allow them to grow to the next level.

Testimonials

Eddie Paterson

“The Leader/Manager model is very, very good and has benefits well beyond the obvious and advertised purpose. Coachees really value its ‘face validity’, its power and ease of use particularly in understanding the causes of the need for change, and in formulating meaningful action plans. More so, with aggregated results, 360Facilitated allows the exploration of the drivers of and barriers to performance at the individual, team and organisational level – understanding the cause and means to improve performance in an organisational construct. Again, a powerful, multi-dimensional tool!”

“What better way to look at one’s self than through the eyes of the people you rely upon to get the mission accomplished? The 360 Review Program was so successful for us, that we rolled it out to our entire Division, providing an opportunity for all staff to contribute, and for all supervisors and other key persons to benefit from the feedback in a way that enables everyone to plan effective, targeted improvement, on a structured basis. Now we are using information gleaned from the 360’s to build Individual Development Plans.”

“Leaderskill Group has assisted our strategic planning with their Mega Planning methodology for over seven years. In the article we co-wrote, I estimated that Defence Consulting had saved between 5 and 8 million dollars – without counting the savings to our stakeholders, including government – just on the redevelopment of the historical Randwick Barracks site in Sydney.”

Developing Leaders

Leadership development

With almost 40 years of experience in developing leaders, 360 feedback and employee surveys, we have researched and developed some of the best ways to grow leadership at every level and make a positive difference in organisations.

We use Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and Positive Psychology in all our work to help 360 feedback participants build on their strengths.

We can train your internal facilitators to deliver programs successfully or provide one of our experienced accredited consultants to work with you to ensure that you achieve the outcomes you want.

360 degree feedback

360 degree feedback provides leaders and people with the information they need to work more effectively. But creating the right context is critical for success.

Strengths-based approach to 360 feedback

Our unique approach to 360 feedback makes it easier for respondents to give feedback and participants to receive it. We believe in helping people grow their strengths and create an environment that allows them to become even better leaders and contributors.

Low threat 360 feedback

Leaderskill Group offers a proven range of strengths-based, low-threat 360 feedback surveys to help people learn from others in a positive, supportive way and to make lasting changes in their behaviour. We can also customise and help you design and host your own custom 360 feedback survey based on your organisation’s own competencies or capability framework. Our surveys are secure and easy to use and deliver high quality reports and development resources.

Organisational surveys

Organisational & employee surveys

Understanding what is happening ‘beneath the surface’ of your organisation is critical to setting the right direction for your long-term success.

We have a range of innovative staff, employee, climate and stakeholder surveys for your staff to let you know what they need to work at their best.

These surveys are easy to set up, run and interpret. They help you decide the changes that will most effectively support and engage your employees and bring people together to improve your organisation.

Return on Investment (ROI)

We work with our clients to define the measures that will ensure the success of their programs and maximise ROI. Development initiatives are able to continue in the organisation when the changes that take place are visible and measured.

As a result of our programs, people open up, appreciate each other more, and start working together more effectively – “Work can be a joy” – in the words of one work-team leader. Or, in the words of a General Manager, “I just didn’t know I had such great people working for me!”
