Culture without Strategy is pointless, but Strategy without Culture is powerless

LeadWell sessions with teams often evoke straight-up conversations that get to the heart of unlocking potential. 

Our sessions weave your strategy, desired culture and team development needs into actual scenarios your leadership team will encounter - we’ll get “head, hands and hearts in” assisted by tried and tested leadership frameworks that work in the real world.

Off-the-shelf “death by PowerPoint” classroom approaches to leadership development don't stick, that's why we don't do lecture style “leadership training”.  

LeadWell gets teams “hands-on” working together, building trust and finding solutions to real life issues they are going to face in high performance leadership at your place. 

We work with people on-site or off-site, through one-off projects (such as leadership retreats or workshops) or deeper dives over a longer term (such as leadership development programs).
We tailor our approach to your needs.

Teams working with LeadWell will grow :

  • Commitment - to strategy, values, and each other

  • Confidence and competence to work as a group of engaging leaders - people who go the extra mile

  • Alignment and clarity - enabling you to move at a faster pace in the same direction

  • Bench strength - the ability to connect on new levels and develop better ways of working together

  • Trust - increasing our ability to have an honest, open conversation - a commonly overlooked dysfunction and root cause in under-performing teams

  • Fresh perspective - from an independent set of eyes and ears who’s walked in similar shoes, faced similar challenges and understands the balancing act and demands of high-performance leadership

Ways we might work together with your leadership team include:

Leadership Team Workshops

Team alignment and better team dynamics build high performing teams.  We help define social contracts, better ways of working together and engage people to win as a team through helping groups set clear expectations around team culture, values and behaviours.  At times we're called on to help problem-solve when teams of people are no longer working at their best together or it's time to reset and refresh the team.

Unlocking Team Dysfunction

These may be roadblocks between teams and/or between team members - helping teams get “unstuck”  using processes like LeadWells’ Futurespective and pre- and post-mortems.

We help teams safely uncover root causes and (re)solve issues so they commit energy, actions and behaviours that move forward.

High Performing Culture/Values/Behaviours Workshops

Workshops to set or refresh team or organisation wide values, behaviours and expectations,  We can assist create a “social contract” amongst members that leads to trust, commitment, and accountability within the team that is aligned with your strategic intent and goals.

Keynotes and Workshops on Leadership 

Topics and sessions built around being at your best and engaging others through high performance leadership and servant leadership.  The themes we touch on are tailored to your needs built on a customised approach aligned with your strategy, culture and values.

What Others Say - 

"Simon helped us keynote and drive a session with our leaders and influencers focussed on building team engagement and culture as part of a wider set of initiatives driving culture change at Hamilton City Council. The session was a great shot in the arm for our team - practical, and motivational and Simon definitely kept it real about the impact leaders make on culture.  Despite the large group setting, Simon made it personable, and practical and challenged us well. 

Our team valued that Simon was able to draw on his own real-life experiences as a leader to support them and offer ideas they could immediately put into action. I would definitely recommend his services"  

Kelvyn Eglinton - CEO Momentum Foundation  (former GM Growth, Hamilton City Council)

The Chief Reminding Officer role LeadWell plays

With teams I can be called on as a helpful "Chief Reminding Officer" - helping lift leadership teams out of the day-to-day to get some “balcony time” working on their team rather than on the day to day business. 

In my own leadership roles, working within teams, I’ve always valued the benefit of an independent voice and a fresh set of eyes and ears that can boost the bench strength of a team. 

This work ties in closely with the work LeadWell does for Leaders and for Business, we encourage you to click below to find out more about each of those areas too :

Ready to connect?

If you are ready to connect let's get together

Or want to know more?

I suggest we start with a ”discovery” meeting, face to face where you and I can download and discuss what’s going on and where you want to go next.  It's also a chance to explore if we’re the right fit for each other (that’s essential).  Over 30-60 minutes, on a no cost no obligation basis, you’ll get a feel for “how” the LeadWell approach works.  When you're keen to progress, we'll propose ideas & agree with you how to best work together to shift the dial and help add lift to what you do.
