Our approach typically involves the following steps:

  • Meet with program sponsors to understand development objectives in the context of their overall commercial strategy.
  • Design a draft program which comprises a range of modules targeting the development objectives and commercial strategy.
  • Fine tune the content in conjunction with the program sponsors.
  • Conduct the programs, with regular updates with client.

The Management Toolbox is typically conducted over a 12 - 18 month period. The programs are usually held in groups of half-day and one-day modules every 3-4 months.

Diagnostic Tools:

Our tailored leadership programs are often combined with one or more of our diagnostic tools which we are accredited to implement and debrief.

Emotional & Social Competence Inventory (ESCI) – Hay Group

Emotional & Social Competence Inventory (ESCI) – Hay Group

An ideal tool for measuring and developing personal leadership behaviours. It uses a 360 degree feedback process to assess one’s emotional intelligence (EI) compared to a target group of successful managers and leaders.

It is the only tool endorsed by Daniel Goleman (the author of the well-known book, Emotional Intelligence) and the only one in which he had direct input into the design.


Inventory of Leadership Styles

Inventory of Leadership Styles (ILS) – Hay Group

A 360 degree survey that provides leaders with a profile of their leadership styles in six dimensions. It consists of two profiles: the leadership style the leader intends; and the leadership style experienced by the leader’s team members.


Organisational Climate Survey

Organisational Climate Survey (OCS) – Hay Group

A multi-rater survey designed to assess the 6 key climate dimensions. It consists of 2 profiles: the climate the leader experiences (i.e. how they see themselves performing and the atmosphere they create); and the climate the leader’s staff experience (i.e. how they feel about their leader and their environment).


Social Style

Social Style – Tracom Group

A 360 degree survey that generates a description of how others perceive your behaviour across 4 styles – Driver, Expressive, Amiable and Analytical. The profile describes how a person’s behaviour, not personality, is seen by others. This tool is useful for increasing a persons’ self-awareness and improving their ability to quickly build rapport with others.




Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

A psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The questions sort an individual into one of 16 categories by determining their preferences across 4 dichotomies: Extraversion or Intraversion; Sensing or Intuition; Thinking or Feeling; Judging or Perceiving. With the results come increased awareness and understanding as to why we behave the way we do and a chance to make better informed decisions.


Belbin Team Roles

The Inventory assesses how an individual behaves in a team environment.The assessment includes 360-degree feedback from observers as well as evaluation from the individual which paints a detailed picture of how they see themselves and how they are perceived by others. Belbin Team Roles are not equivalent to personality types, the Belbin assessment scores people on how strongly they express behavioural traits from nine different, yet complementary, team roles.
