You will increase the speed (through increased clarity and less resistance) to achieving the desired future direction of the organisation.



1. The Self-Aware Leader 

Most good managers have sound product knowledge or technical skills, the ability to manage relationships and the motivation to succeed. But exceptional managers are also self-aware.

2.  The Resilient Leader 

Get tips and techniques to self-manage anxiety and stress and create a resilience plan that will help you bounce back from setbacks and thrive in high-pressure environments.

3.  The Courageous Leader 

Having the confidence to manage tough conversations and conflict is an essential leadership skill. Your approach can make or break relationships and determine decisions and their outcomes


1.  Building and Leading Teams 

Learn strategies for building great teams and creating successful team dynamics. You will develop skills that enhance communication and trust and align team members around shared goals so they can effectively plan, communicate, execute and deliver.

2.  Influencing Others 

Every leader needs to be able to engage with people and get their buy-in and approval. Learn to recognise which influencing style is required in different situations and develop strategies to help you achieve the outcome you desire.

3.  Feedback for Results 

Effective feedback is a crucial part of improving individual and team performance. This module focuses on the one-on-one conversations held between managers and their direct reports. You’ll get to know your own feedback style and use models to plan and prepare positive developmental and personal feedback


1.  Business Focus and Planning

A business plan is a powerful tool for bringing objectives and goals into focus. This workshop takes you through business or departmental goal setting and introduces a few widely used planning tools. You’ll leave with a high level ‘plan on a page’ that you can build on for future success

2.  Leading Change/Leading Performance 

Periods of change can be challenging – and sound leadership is essential to help people make positive transitions. Explore your role in communicating and planning change, find out how people typically respond and why, and learn tactics to help manage their responses and resistance to it

What Participants Say

“I understand better my strengths and weaknesses and have come to realise that just because I have weaknesses it doesn't mean I'm not good enough - it means that I know where I need to get extra support and put more energy into developing that area.”
~ Margaret Kruse, Administration Manager for Duncan NZ Ltd.
"The course helped me understand that a lot of my instinctive decisions were right on track, so it has given me a lot more confidence in my leadership style. I have also learnt to question some of my ingrained work habits and to think more carefully about workflow and time management in conjunction with leading the team."
~ Jude Froude, General Manager for Indian Ink Theatre Company
“I feel that I’m a better person and a better manager now for having done this course. It has given me extra tools to be aware of how I deal with people.”
~ Michelle Pickles, Media Personnel Manager for New Zealand Racing Board
“There were a lot of tools that we learnt that can actually be used on an everyday basis with teams and workshops and meetings. One of the biggest impacts of having done the course was how it enabled me to engage with our clients - not only navigating how to talk to my team and motivate them for change, but also applying that to my clients and authentically listening to them.”
~ Michelle Poulton, COO for AlphaCert Labs
“The IMNZ training brings through techniques that you can apply but also gives an understanding of the psychology that would influence certain types of behavior, and at the end of the day that’s what we are trying to do—change people’s behaviour so we can get better outcomes.”
~ Tanvir Bhamji, Headwork Consents Manager for Watercare Services Ltd.
