    Flagship Leadership Course


    Achieve greater clarity, lead purposefully and influence at work, home and everywhere in between

Overview

Compass’ 7 Day Leadership Course is a transformational program that links women’s ambition with their deepest sense of purpose and core values.

You can expect to get a new level of self-awareness and understanding around why you do what you do and feel what you feel. You will receive phenomenal insights into the other people in your life, and a level of personal clarity and energy you might not have felt in a while.
It is holistic in nature and enhances leadership capability at work and home, and can reframe the way you view yourself, so you can lead authentically, with influence and in alignment with your values.

Who is This For ?

Women who want to create sustainable cultural change within their organisation.

    • You will go through an immersive values elicitation exercise and be able to identify your core values that drive you
    • You’ll be connected with the wider group and your triad: two other women you’ll work closely with throughout the program and who become your coaches, trusted advisers and, in many cases, lifelong friends

  • Module 2 (2 Days)

    • We will focus on understanding individual thinking styles and exploring our own self-talk via the Life Styles Inventory (LSI) diagnostic

    • We look at various learning styles and how to better influence and craft your message to engage an audience via the 4Mat Learning Type Measure (LTM)

TESTIMONIALS

  • Rebecca Norman

    I haven’t stopped thinking about what now can be possible for me by completing Compass. After the first 2 days my main observation was watching a room full of strangers sharing and caring for each other so well.  By sharing my story, I finally realised that I wasn’t on my own and although the vulnerability was quiet overwhelming, I always felt safe and secure.
    After the 2 sessions I felt a shift in myself, like I had been physically and mentally adjusted and the words and confidence that I’ve been searching for were now slowly appearing.

  • Natalie Egleton, CEO, Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR)

    Compass was the first time that I had focussed on myself and my personal values, vision and purpose. The program gave me space to delve deeply into why I operate the way that I do and what was holding me back from being an impactful leader. The tools and frameworks used in Compass provided a format to see myself clearly and to shift though patterns that were stopping me from being effective.

  • Caroline Stainkamph, Head of IT Leadership and Culture Change, Computershare

    Worth every cent! Time to reflect and tools to help you understand who you are and what your purpose is in life. Connecting with so many women who, just like me, have self-doubt and yet we are so amazing in our own right. To quiet the voices in my head that give me doubt and provide strategies to focus on being constructive to help me move forward in my career. To understand that I am a whole person, and to be authentic means paying attention to all aspects of me – work and family and friends.
