Thinking Intelligence
for Leaders


Successful Leaders are Whole-Brained. Our research shows that Leaders who suffer problems tend to be weak in one or two core Thinking Styles.

Develop Whole-Brained Leaders … the ability to flex your thinking to think in the right ways in any Leadership situation or challenge (basic Thinking Intelligence).

Introduction to Thinking Intelligence® and the particular Business Thinking Processes and Thinking Styles most relevant to successful leadership.  

Thinking Intelligence can vastly improve Leadership capability - and minimise the risk of plans and decisions going wrong.

What affects Business/Team Performance, Motivation, Engagement, and Productivity?


Learning what affects performance is the start point for improving it 
… critical for all leaders

Three unique Leadership Development Interventions

Creative-Analytical Workshops aimed at groups of Leaders. All these workshops are highly productive leadership development events.

Each workshop:
- examines fundamental drivers and inhibitors 
- studies particular factors relevant to the client's own business/organisation/teams to resolve specific issues
- creates and plans practical ideas for improvements.

♦ What affects Business Performance considers the key factors that can affect the performance of any business, negatively and positively.

♦ What affects Team Performance examines the 20-plus generic factors that can affect the performance of any team, at any level.

♦ What affects Motivation, Engagement, and Productivity probes all the major factors that can significantly impair, or drive, the performance of any employee.

Leaders as 70-20-10

"OK. So who would like this interesting challenge?"

Your Leaders are your best talent developers

All organisations should inspire (and reward) their leaders and managers to take greater responsibility for developing their staff. Our 70-20-10 workshops give practical advice on how to:
- identify and analyse learning and development needs 
- coach (not a natural skill for many leaders)
- identify cost-effective on-job development opportunities.

Attendees will capitalise on their prime position as leader to observe performance and spot opportunities to develop their team - a key performance measure.

Leading Challenging Conversations 


Find out how to overcome concerns and deal confidently with difficult situations

Give your managers the confidence to tackle any people situation

This workshop provides tools and techniques to enable anyone to approach with confidence a challenging conversation/meeting. Can be designed to deal with client's/managers' particular issues, eg handling poor performance.

Managers often shy away from dealing with difficult situations which ultimately affect business and team performance (a problem which usually goes undetected).
