Leadership Development

We deem 'whole leaders’ are made when released out of their comfort zones. We activate individual & collective leadership to create real change makers who pay it forward by building stronger cultures

Leadership development is one of the most critical business issues that organizations are faced with today. Great leaders are born and made in equal measure. CorporateDNA brings the power of neuroscience, adult learning principles with business pragmatism to programs that are designed from a “whole person” approach. This focuses not only on “what the leader should do”, but also on “who they should be” and “why they should lead” by pivoting behavioural changes, rewiring mindsets and stretching people outside of their comfort zones to make better decisions.

CorporateDNA’s leadership development program helps leaders discover their true potential through self-directed learning by tapping into their strengths and managing their interferences, e.g., fears, insecurities and limiting beliefs, to experience exponential growth. In partnering together, leaders expand their capacity to fully show up, get real and creatively solve any challenge or opportunity they face.

CorporateDNA’s leadership program has been proven successful over the last 14 years and has helped fast track people’s careers to lucrative leadership positions. More than 91% of the candidates have built confidence, credibility, character and advanced their visibility and impact within the organization. CorporateDNA has also been rated one of the best providers to deliver a structured, leadership development experience virtually with the same impact and ROI (face to face, live online, moderated online, or as self-directed learning.)

Our NPS scores have ranged from 75-90% over the last 14 years across clients from multiple industries and cultures.

Here are our illustrative tools that activate the magic of the 5H©:
Critical mass of influencers

In addition to ROI for the delegate, CorporateDNA is very passionate about activating the power of the leadership cohort as a critical mass of influencers in the leadership program. This ensures that it is not about creating an elite group, but rather creating change makers who pay it forward to the wider business and inspire others to create sustainable shifts in the organization.
