We Create Leadership Journeys

In a time when continuous change has become the only constant, effective leadership is the decisive success factor. To maximise our clients' leadership capacity we do not only offer professional leadership consulting, training and coaching - we create journeys. During these journeys we provide clients with insight into the constantly changing dynamics of 21st Century leadership and help them discover how to lead with maximum impact. We believe no two clients are the same and therefore follow a tailor-fit approach, first assessing each client’s unique needs and requirements. By mapping out the journey in this way we are able to provide our clients with exactly the right services and products to help improve their ability to shape the future of their choice through effective leadership.

From Individual Strengths to Dynamic Organizations

Successful people are the core of successful organizations and therefore most of our journeys start with the individual. Using StrengthsFinder TM  and DISC360 assessments and coaching we help individuals understand what they have to offer in terms of their unique strengths and skills and how they can be the best possible versions of themselve by developing and using these. The journey then continues to teams where we again follow a strengths-based approach to help teams align individual abilities with team goals and results. The third stage of the journey is where we empower entire organizations by providing long-term leadership development programs and ongoing executive coaching where needed.

Neuroscience of Leadership

SLI embraces neuroleadership as probably the greatest single step forward in the history of leadership and organizational development and therefore incorporates neuroleadership into all our programs. Core focuses in our leadership development programs include the emerging field of neuroleadership, 21st Century leadership skills, change leadership, strategic foresight, team dynamics, conflict management, negotiation skills, employee motivation, communication skills, personal mastery and diversity management. 

Our Team

Our dynamic team - an association of some of South Africa's top leadership development, executive coaching, corporate training and cross-cultural engagement professionals - is able and eager to bring an extensive range of skills, knowledge, experience and creativity to any project or entity. With nearly two decades of international experience we are able to assist leaders and organizations to improve their ability to effectively and strategically lead and develop people for the 21st Century marketplace. We help shape the future by making leaders better, so let the journey begin!
