What to Expect from Breakthrough 2019

A development process that will challenge you and push you to question your behaviours, motivations and beliefs.


The payback for you: a sea-change in your career as a leader. We have helped thousands of managers like you realise their career goals, for many, this was a track to the C-suite, for others it was following their passion and creating work, life balance as a successful executive. Each client we work with has unique goals; however, we know that addressing core leadership challenges is the key to making the breakthrough they desire.

To do this we take a very personal approach to how we support you. We ask you to publish your career goals and identify the challenges you want to overcome.

Your personal coach will use this information to help you create a plan to succeed. Your coach will push you to try harder and relentlessly ask you for more.

Each coaching session will be an opportunity to reflect and learn from your past actions allowing you to gain insights into your leadership philosophies. You will use this knowledge to make small adjustments that create tremendous value for you and your team.

Workshop Agenda

  • Introduction to the MGL leadership system, showing the core skills and interdependencies of great leadership.

  • You will examine your leadership challenges and the triggers that impact your performance and develop strategies to improve your success.

  • Learn tools and processes for building a winning culture. It is a leader’s role to build a culture that embraces performance, by harnessing the full potential of people enabling them to become more effective and results driven.

  • Creating a shared vision is a critical strategy for aligning your management team and harnessing their ideas and ambitions. A vision built with your team has the power to transcend individual self-interests, and is a platform for problem-solving, decision making and communication. You will learn to use a Vision Panel© to develop a shared vision and identify the critical problems that will be solved as your plan becomes a reality.

  • Learning how to transform your management team into a problem-solving engine will give you back time and give you the space you need to influence a wider stakeholder group. Research shows us that management teams rarely perform as a high-performance team as judged by team members. The secret to changing this outcome is adopting a process that harnesses their diversity and structures problem-solving and decision making

  • Each major decision or problem has a unique set of stakeholders, mapping the stakeholders needed for change will improve your ability to influence decisions.

  • Influencing is a core leadership skill. Developing your influencing skills helps you to communicate your vision and goals, align the efforts of others, and build commitment from people at all levels. You will get feedback about your current communication pattern and learn a method for changing your effectiveness.

  • Coaching leadership mindsets will improve performance. Coaching brings out the best in individuals and teams. You will learn how to use mindset coaching to empower your team members and help them become more resourceful and self-aware.

  • Understanding your value as a leader is key to your future success because, at some point, you will stop being paid for what you know, and start being paid for the value you create. You will learn a method for evaluating where you spend time and energy to maximise your focus and ensure it always aligns with your vision.

  • Breakthrough is not a workshop; it’s a transformation process. Greatness is a choice that starts when you arrive back in your office, either go back to BAU or, start implementing your leadership plan. We know this is a truly enormous challenge; this is why we have built-in leadership coaching as part of the process. Your coach will help you implement your plan and give you advice and support based on years of experience helping others faced with the same choice. BAU is easy. Greatness is your choice to make.
