in leading high performance teams

The Chief Maker MiniMBA in Leading High Performance Teams is a virtual, coach-led 12 week program for senior leaders who are ready to take their leadership to a new level.

Starting 1 February 2023 | $3,500 AUD

boldly lead change. inspire your people. leave a legacy.

course overview

work on the business, not in the business

Unlike other MBA programs, the MiniMBA in Leading High Performance Teams demands leaders use their very own organisation as a case study for the duration of the course, thereby driving performance improvement and business change in real-time.

Under the guidance of an experienced Executive Coach, leaders build their own Strategic Playbook to lead their people and business through change while also learning strategies and frameworks for stakeholder management, overcoming competing priorities and dealing with stress.

unite and create focus in your team

Are competing priorities creating overwhelm and a lack of alignment. Do the goal posts keep shifting? Are targets harder to hit?

Learn how to unite your team with a common vision and build a strategic playbook that keeps you laser-focused to deliver results.

learn to be a coach, not just a boss

Are low performers sucking the energy out of your people? Or are your high performers in need of a bigger challenge?

Learn how to coach both low and high performers in a way that raises the bar and uncovers hidden potential in all the team.

increase influence with key stakeholders

Are you continually frustrated by internal politics? Do you find it difficult to influence powerful stakeholders?

Learn how to be a trusted and influential voice of reason who people come to for advice and to get things done.
