Leadership Development Academy

Workshops and Programs

Professional development for high performing and high potential Leaders and teams.

Athena Leadership Academy partners with firms and organisations that understand supporting leaders with both the skills and mindset for success is not just important; it is essential.

Successful organisations depend on their leaders to make confident, autonomous and aligned decisions, and in the process, to be leaders people actually want to follow. In order to do this effectively, leaders need to be emotionally intelligent, self-aware, resilient and striving for continuous improvement.

At Athena Leadership Academy, we create award-winning Leadership Development Programs tailored specifically to the needs of your people. We partner with you to ascertain what specific outcomes your firm requires, then design and facilitate a bespoke program to build leaders who are confident and capable in their role, whilst driving optimal performance.

Athena Leadership Academy Programs adopt a blended learning approach, proven to maximise engagement, integration of the learnings and therefore drive commercial results.

We consider all components from talent selection and targeting, topic selection, best practice learning methodologies, key success measurements, accountability and manager involvement, exceptional delivery and additional resources.

All of our programs are both enjoyable for participants and drive long-term commercial results, long after the program is complete.

Award-winning programs

Our award-winning programs commit to building self-awareness, leadership capability and the accountability required to make concepts stick. They focus on:

  • Education of leadership concepts through a series of customised workshop modules
  • Exposure through group coaching, plus social and peer-based learning
  • Experience through the application of concepts and theories in day-to-day responsibilities

These solutions are perfect for mid to senior-level Managers, often relatively new to the responsibility of leading other Managers.

    What our participants say…

    Thank you for yesterday. I am a sceptic of such courses and did my very best to get out of doing the CPP. But, yesterday morning before I arrived, I took a deep breath and told myself to be open to the idea of learning new things and meeting new people.  And did that happen? You were so engaging and honest and the day seemed to fly by.  You covered so many things I’ve been thinking about this year particularly around the narrative I tell myself and how it is actually inhibiting me from being my best.  Lately, I’ve been trying to channel abundance and a no restraints approach to every facet of my life and it was very neat to see that reflected back yesterday afternoon.  So many thanks for your time, efforts and passion! Afterwards, I felt very grateful to have been a part of yesterday and I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the modules. – Kirti S – TAL
