For almost 20 years we have helped businesses develop managers and leaders to:
Our leadership programs are tailored to your industry, business and strategic objectives. They are well-researched, evidence-based, modern and inspiring. Importantly they are mostly taught by our founder Kristyn Haywood who is a top expert in the field of leadership education and a leader herself. Highly capable, experienced leadership trainers are critical to developing strong leaders. We can adapt the materials, models, research and activities to any context making the learning immediately applicable. Those who don't have experience leave it to the participant to make sense of the content which doesn't always translate into learning.
Kristyn is wildly passionate about great leadership. What else is more important? As an experienced values-based leadership educator, executive coach, and facilitator Kristyn works in partnership with businesses to develop strong values-based leaders capable of building agile, human-centred, customer-centric and ethical workplace leaders and cultures.
Kristyn has a Master's thesis on Leadership, has read hundreds of books, listened to dozens more and has been to almost every live event with my favourite educators including Brene Brown, Simon Sinek, and Patrick Lencioni. Kristyn has more than 15 leadership coaching qualifications/accreditations. She has educated over a thousand leaders in Australia and overseas. A leader herself, she Chairs a Strata Committee (300 units), and Founder of a not-for-profit Expand Now which helps women stand in their power and build their confidence. Before becoming an obsessive Leadership Educator Kristyn was, for many years, a HR Executive. Most importantly, she loves this important work. Kristyn is the lead facilitator for all our Leadership Development Programs.

"Kristyn's style is unique, engaging, encouraging and honest. I learnt more from her than in any management training I did before. She is unbelievably knowledgeable and a true Master of her trade. We were taught many useful tools to help manage our teams and workloads while staying true to ourselves and confident in our skills. The coaching sessions were deep and meaningful. They helped me to realise that to be a true leader you must work on your personal development as well as we simply can't separate out our professional identity from our personal identity."

I was part of a group session facilitated by Kristyn and then received exec coaching from her. On both occasions, our team and me personally gained immensely from Kristyn' skills. She is an excellent facilitator and a coach who is able to make you think about things that matter to your company, team and to you.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kristyn for any similar leadership services.
