People Leadership Program

The goal of this program is to work with team leaders and middle managers on key skills that are geared toward growing leadership effectiveness, coaching and giving feedback, and creating an inclusive culture. The learning is supported by an eLearning module and pre and post workshop tasks. Optional ‘train the trainer’ and ‘facilitation skills’ workshops can set up senior leaders with the skills to facilitate this program in the second roll out.

What a challenge, it takes you out of comfort zone and gets you thinking. I know the team put in a lot of work in the background and do an awesome job, but Ben is the perfect frontman. He gets to know the individuals and what makes them tick and how to get the best out of them.

Let Thinka Help You

    Q
    Our in-person delivery option maximises opportunities for robust conversation, experiential activities and intensive group work. This is no ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience – our facilitators are skilled in presenting and leading immersive experiences that get the most out of people. Supported by multimedia, attractive takeaway pages and practical strategies for using back on the job – this in-person approach is valuable for building strong bonds and bringing people together to collaborate.
    Q
    Our virtual delivery option breathes fresh life into the online experience with its almost ‘radio show’ feel. Our expert facilitators use a combination of multimedia, questioning techniques and break out activities to target micro-skills – with a focus on application. Supported by an online platform hosting custom-built materials, participants can be assured of lively, dynamic sessions that have a distinct bias to action. Going virtual keeps program sessions succinct, sharp and focused on targeting particular skills in a dynamic way.
    Q
    A hybrid model takes the best of in-person and virtual delivery options and blends them together, so there’s a healthy mix of face to face collaboration and targeted skill building. Depending on the program themes, we work with you to decide what is better suited to getting together in a training space versus what would sit comfortably in an online setting. This flexible combination allows you and your team to get the best of both worlds.
