Leadership Conversations© helps people work together.

It helps develop stronger, honest & lasting relationships.

It turns straight talking into a competitive advantage.

Leadership Conversations© accelerates communication, increasing trust and engaging people to focus on what is truly important.

Leadership Conversations© comes ready to teach.

(and we still don’t)

We don’t like brochures because they often stretch the truth.

Because actors never look as beautiful as real people do.

Because a few chosen quotes don’t tell the whole story.

Because concepts, models and blurbs are not what makes a difference in how people work and live everyday.

However, we realise that we need something to start a conversation with you. So, here it is.

The fact is that we prefer a conversation with you so we can explore the possibility of changing your part of the world, together.


All of us have conversations every day. Conversations with bosses, clients, teams and suppliers – but not all these produce good results.

We assume that everyone’s naturally equipped with the necessary skills to have productive conversations, but reality shows that this is rarely the case: decisions are deferred, issues avoided, projects delayed, trust eroded, relationships infected and collaboration damaged.

Learning how to endure difficult conversations is very different from having Leadership Conversations©.

There are simple principles and skills that give conversations a much better chance of being productive. Leadership Conversations© builds these skills, and builds them fast. Within hours of the start of training, interactions change and conversations become increasingly productive.

Everything flows more quickly and feels, well, just better.


This is stating the obvious, but in case you were wondering

When enough individuals use Leadership Conversations© in their everyday interactions, a new culture is created. Imagine what happens when people are able to have direct, non-manipulative, constructive conversations across the board.

Our graduates (and their bosses) tell us they experience:

– Enhanced trust in team and beyond

– Honest performance management

– Less finger-pointing and more ownership

– Breakdown of silos

– Increased customer satisfaction

– Faster decision making

– Follow-through

– Shorter, productive meetings

– Greater collaboration across teams and cultures

Leadership Conversations© does not give tips on how to ‘win’ difficult conversations. Everything people learn works from inside out, transforming relationships today and tomorrow.

Based on latest research in Cognitive and Behavioural science, Leadership Conversations© tackles the traps that sabotage our best intentions and erode our results. People begin to take real action during the first break of the course.

It is also much faster and easier to apply than hundreds of separate tricks and tips. It gives only one thing to learn, one thing to practice and one thing to master. It builds a mindset where everything flows quite naturally, irrespective of who the conversation is with or what it is about.

Leadership Conversations© creates honest, direct and constructive conversations. We, and our many tens of thousands of graduates, know these are the building blocks of healthy organisations.






The box is packed. Videos, workbooks, cartoons, animations, online tools, expert instructor’s instruction, the Thinking Profiles© test…

Basically, everything you need to give each participant not only fresh insight and skills in the Leadership Conversations© approach, but group work and roleplays and real life activity that bring everything to life and create a fast and visible change in behaviour.

Here’s the telling point: many people actually begin to have real world conversations while they’re still on the course. Not just roleplays, but real conversations. Conversations with their bosses, their teams, their colleagues, their husbands and wives, etc. Conversations they’ve been avoiding and will now make happen.

Also, Leadership Conversations 3.0 includes membership to Leadership Workouts©, a members-only online Leadership gym. Here participants can continue to work on their Leadership fitness, their conversations and their relationships in the weeks and months after the course.


Our programs have developed over 100,000 graduates from all backgrounds and regions. We learned that we need to go beyond our workshops in order to build our impact over time. Our secret mission is to change the world, and we need more leadership everywhere in order to do so.

Leadership Conversations 3.0 is about to change Leadership development forever. After people take our initial training they enter real-life learning, driven by membership to Leadership Workouts©

Imagine an online ‘gym’ designed to encourage and support participants as they develop ‘muscle’ in all aspects of their Leadership.

At their own pace, members workout in three key areas: heart (wanting to lead), mind (knowing how to lead) and body (having the wellbeing required to lead).

Month on month they ‘work out’ to enhance their conversations, and develop ever stronger Leadership over their own lives and their relationships with others.


The simple answer is everyone.

When you master the skill of Leadership Conversations©, you will be able to convert a conversation you would have avoided in the past, into one where you can create value and feel good about it.

You will find yourself actively seeking conversations, making big things happen in your personal and professional lives.

We realise delivery and timing for training can be complicated. There are many ways to learn, and the most effective delivery depends on people’s availability, learning styles, location, and all the other training that people receive.

Given this, we recognise that delivery needs to be tailored to meet the needs of the individual and your organisation.

This is why we offer Leadership Conversations© in a variety of formats and delivery options, so you can easily assemble the package that best fits your needs.

Your options include:

  • Run Leadership Conversations© in your organisation with our own Certified Instructors
  • Bring this training in-house by certifying your own trainers and managers in our Instructor and Master Instructor Certification Programs

Leadership Conversations© modular design means that in-house courses may be spaced over multiple training sessions or delivered back-to-back over two days.

Probably like you, we are passionate about helping people and organisations focus on the right things and have a great time doing it (them and us, actually).

After many years working in the consulting world, a few of us came together to answer one question: how could we help large groups of people change the way they do things, in short periods of time? Was it really possible?

We work in Asia, Europe and The Americas, so we can help as many people as possible. We do want to change the world, and we don’t care if it sounds trite.

Join us in our quest to change forever the relationship between people and the work they do. 

We’d love to talk to you.

(*) You’ll have noticed the people in our pictures are not actors. They’re real people learning and having Leadership Conversations© with their real (multiple) bosses, with a real family member, with a real customer, with a real onshore/offshore colleague, with their real recently merged team, with other real sometimes confused, sometimes stretched, sometimes disengaged human beings, effectively working well with others and making a difference in the world.
