Dangerously Good Leadership Training.
For those who dare.
Desperate for leaders who get it? Plot twist … they’re right in front of you.
Great leadership skills don’t exist in the wild. Resilience, empathy, courage, and curiosity… are all skills that can be taught.
So why are so many of our leaders lacking in this area?
Somewhere along the line, many leaders stop learning. The reasons are varied. Overwhelm, fear of being judged as ‘lacking’, ego, or simply having lost sight of their primary role.
We’re here to reignite the commitment to continual development and personal growth that will result in better outcomes for your people and your business.
Why is this so important?
We are eating rapid change and ambiguity for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And if you don’t want to be spat out on the wrong side of history, you’ll need resilience and emotional intelligence in your leaders so they can show up with the mindset and capability to lead in the now. Leaders who leave ego at the door, are open to learning and understand that their role is to serve.
When you partner with Workman, we will unlock that leadership potential, so you can unlock the potential of your people, and your organisation.
“A leader, first and foremost, is human.
Only when we have the strength to show our vulnerability can we truly lead.” Simon Sinek

“Jo is so exceptional, that I’ve made a point of engaging with her creativity in every organisation I’ve worked at throughout my career – both in NZ and in the UK. She always finds a way to get to the heart of complex issues with great care and warmth, and in a reassuringly precise, deliberate, and credible way. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough”
Director – Five
“The reason Jo is so memorable is that she takes the time to fully understand your business, the little intricacies that make your business unique, and the language and terminology that the participants can fully relate to. It’s this tailored style that ensures you get a delivery that really hits the mark. I have seen the positive impact on our people as a result already.”
Sales & Service Manager – Classic Builders
“Jo’s engaging style was a hit with our leaders and really helped them grasp the concepts of a successful mindset in practical terms that they could apply straight away. Her approach, supplemented with real-world stories, turned what could otherwise be a ‘fluffy’ topic into something very tangible.”
Former Head of People Engagement – NZ Post Group
If your leaders are letting you down … lift them up.
Supporting your leadership team with mindset and skills training is an investment that pays back in spades. An investment that requires buy-in from the individual, and support from the whole organisation.
At Workman that investment is something we respect.
“Spray and pray” is not what we’re about. Our approach is strategic and conscious because we are invested in results that impact now and into the future.
How do we achieve this? We ask the gritty questions.We offer the right solutions.We coach the underlying issues.
Leadership training is as effective as the leader is receptive.
Engaging in development offers high rewards, but readiness is critical. The best results come from organisations where structures and policies exist to support that growth.
Part of our initial work is in identifying the readiness of the audience for the learning; at both an individual and organisational level.
Today’s unpredictable business environment demands resilient and empathetic leaders with the tools and mindset to cope and lead. It can involve addressing some tough pain points such as skill gaps, blind spots or ingrained attitudes that become a hand-brake to progress. And this must be handled sensitively.
“Leaders aren’t born, they are made. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal which is worthwhile.”
