Executive Master Class Group DiscussionThe Executive Master Class program follows around table coaching format to encourage open discussion and maximum participation and learning process.  The groups for leadership coaching in Sydney are small (between 6 - 8 participants) to maximise learning and coach client time.  The coaching sessions can be 2 hours or 3 hours depending on your availability and learning requirements.

No prior learning is required.  During leadership training and development the participants will be taught a framework of understanding and strategies that focus on effective leadership, personal and interpersonal management skills.  They will then be required to apply these understandings and strategies in their work practice to consolidate the learning process each week and report back in the following session.

Each leadership coaching session in Sydney will be broken down into a review of the weeks, with participants learning using examples and open discussion under the supervision of a professional coach.  Then there will be the introduction of the next unit of information followed by open discussion.  Once the participants have a thorough understanding of the information, they will then work with me to work out how they will apply their new insights and what their expectations might be. These personal case studies will be discussed and analysed at the following session to enhance the learning outcomes before the next unit of information is delivered.  The case studies provided by the participants undergoing the leadership training and development program will be augmented by case studies derived from my coaching practice and research.

Unlike most coaching programs, leadership training and development in Sydney is run over 10 sessions. Initially the training sessions are a week apart.  As the participants become comfortable with the information the sessions will be spread out to fortnightly to allow the participants to have plenty of time to gather examples and to apply their learnings to their work place.


The first program is a predefined program run over 10 sessions called Navigating the Corporate Landscape.

The other type of leadership training and development programs I run are tailored programs. Again, they are focussed on developing high levels of skills in core leadership and management competencies.  While the material contained in the course comes from contemporary research, you decide the area of study that you want your people to cover.

For example, you might wish to have the class dedicated to developing high level communications and or conflict resolution.  You might be interested in having your people learn how to build highly effective teams, or you might require them to participate in a program of leadership and influence.

Whatever your needs, I will be able to develop a master class program in Sydney that suits your requirements


A leadership training and development master class is targeted at your best talent. It is as the name implies is for executives who need to develop a very high level of skill in either a specific area or more broadly across vast range of key effectiveness and leadership competencies.

Attendees of leadership coaching must be confident, they must be managing a team of people, able to express themselves clearly, have good level of conflict resolution skills, are well organised and capable of learning at a fast pace. The most common executive level to attend one of my master classes is VP. Though people below this level are welcome as long as they meet the above criteria.

Not all attendees will be asked to stay on over the course of the program. Some will find the work too difficult, or may not be ready for the level of learning that will be required of them.


The Master Class concept is dedicated to effective, long term and lasting learning. With that in mind, it is an ongoing program attendees will participate in 10 sessions over the course of 12 weeks.


Once leadership training and development is completed, successful attendees will be invited to join an ongoing group dedicated to mastery of leadership skills.


Master Classes are run at a venue that is convenient to you and your people.  It could be in a meeting room at your offices or at a venue of your choosing.  Why do I run these


Unlike most programs that are run on a per person per session basis, The Executive Master Class programs are a fixed fee based on the number of sessions.
