The notion of separate business and personal lives has been replaced with an understanding that today’s world requires a co-mingling of each aspect of life. We develop our clients as whole people integrating the many facets that make up the broader picture of who a person is and who they want to be.
Key to building a foundation upon which both leadership and followership are built are five core values:
These are the values upon which Apricot Consulting is anchored and they are embedded into the training we deliver.
Our leadership Development programs follow a three level approach:
- Leading self
All good leadership starts within. This is the anchor from which the whole-person is grounded, and the introspective journey is vital to healthy growth. By gaining a better understanding of yourself: strengths, weaknesses, styles, motivations and core leadership values, we are able to develop greater personal awareness for the multitude of environments in which we must operate.
- Leading others
Leadership is ultimately about relationships. Operating from a place of trust, and mutual respect, leaders are able to strengthen skills in team building, effective communication and conflict management. This allows leaders to better connect with colleagues at all levels of the organisation hierarchy.
- Leading beyond
Developing collaborative teams, while establishing shared vision and mission is key to helping leaders reach the next level of performance. Impacting organisational culture, change management and innovation will enable a leader to direct and grow an organisation to achieve its maximum potential.
Working in collaboration with you and your team we build a highly flexible leadership program that we tailor to your organisation as we discover your unique talents. We optimise development for you and your team by ensuring our programs are contextual, involve real world engagement, embrace the experiences of others and are measurable.
