No business can outperform the quality of its leaders. Leaders influence every aspect of a business and are a vital cog in driving business performance. Lockstep builds leadership capabilities at the CEO, Executive Team, and Middle Manager levels.

Leaders who are able to drive performance require a wide range of capabilities.

Lockstep works with three dimensions of leadership: character; skill; knowledge. All three elements are needed to lead effectively in the complex business environment of today. 

Building effective leaders requires a sophisticated approach. Standardised leadership programs that are not specific to the strategy, culture, and operational requirements of the business will miss the mark and lead to low returns on investment. 

Lockstep’s leadership programs are rigourous and follow a deliberate process: diagnosing the leadership requirement; designing a customised leadership solution; delivering that leadership program; measuring impact.

What our clients say

Most of my previous experience with leadership coaches has been underwhelming: theoretical models, loose deliverables, trite commentary, and superficial analysis. Rowan is the absolute antithesis of this and the impact is fast, measurable and deep. The work is often hard but pushes people through doors very quickly.
Jonty Fisher
What the hell should a CEO focus their energy on? It's a question I grappled with for years as our company and its demands on me began to grow. Rowan has helped me figure some of this stuff out and point me in the right direction.
Styli Charalambous
I have had the privilege of being informed and inspired by Rowan over the past few years. His prompts, processes, and conversations are always deeply valuable, intellectual, and practical. His IP is unequaled, but his humanity and his deep belief that being a CEO can be joyful, creative, and energising - and not just something to be endured - is very unique and useful.
Kevin Liebenberg
My journey with Rowan has been life-changing and continues to be life-changing. Not only for my CEO work but as a person too. Every time I’ve sat around a table with Rowan and my CEO peers, I feel challenged and inspired. Somehow the topics always hit the right spot at a time I need it.
