Four distinct leadership modes

The Multi Modal Leadership Program teaches leaders how to operate in four distinct Leadership Modes. Each mode is underpinned by a set of distinct leadership behaviours that fully-developed leaders must be able to access each mode in order to lead effectively across a variety of business scenarios.

The Multi Modal Leadership Program is a mature offering that has been refined over multiple years across a wide variety of business sectors. Results are tracked to ensure impact across an organisation.

Program format

The program structure consists of six modules that are delivered over 4 – 6 months online, in-person or in a hybrid mode. The learning process consists of teaching, personal discovery, coaching and applied learnings and culminates with each leader building their own personalised, fit-for-purpose leadership plan.

The program structure allows for large numbers of leaders to be built at scale.

Unlock your leadership potential with the Multi Modal Leadership Program.

The opening module of The Multi Modal Leadership Program teaches foundational leadership techniques that set a base for the ensuing modules.

Leaders will understand the current business context they operate in and the results they are being asked to deliver. Personal leadership motivations and behaviour patterns are unpacked, giving leaders an understanding of what informs their unique leadership approach.

The Guide Mode focuses on understanding and navigating the ever-changing external environment. This module teaches leaders how to set a vision and communicate the way forward to the people they lead.

Leaders will learn how to identify potential opportunities and anticipate challenges, guiding your team by creating conditions of surety and calm as the leaders’ future vision is brought to life.

In the Drive Mode, leaders learn how to motivate others to deliver exceptional results. This module focuses on setting clear expectations, establishing accountability, and providing the necessary support to foster high performance.

Leaders learn how to monitor progress and address performance gaps to create a culture of continuous improvement.

The Connect mode helps leaders build cohesion and trust.

Building cohesion requires careful refinement of the right culture by creating safe environments that encourage collaboration and generosity. The Connect Mode helps leaders develop the intuition and people-management skills that are vital to high performance.

The Inspire Mode teaches leaders to create the vitality and life force that powers high performance. Hope is a key component of business success: the belief that a better future awaits.

Instilling this hope requires leaders to be expressive in their actions and creative in their communication. The Inspire Mode develops the creativity in leaders to fully express their aspirations for a team in a compelling, believable way.

Good leadership requires grit: having a plan and sticking to it. On the back of the progress made over the previous modules and the familiarisation with the four Leadership Modes, a tight game plan is needed to bring the learnings together.

A personalised leadership plan is developed in this module that ties the previous modules together and sets leaders on a course for building high-performing teams that deliver results.
