Blueprint Performance Program For Emerging Leaders

A transformative evidence-based and psychologically developed program that provides foundational leadership skills to form critical habits that drive individual and performance, leadership effectiveness and measurable success.


This is a program designed for new and emerging leaders to build positive and effective leadership behaviours while having practical and applicable skills to enhance individual and team performance.

"I feel like this has changed the course of my leadership.

Program Overview

This immersive program applies insights from psychology, neuroscience, management and business to create practical and effective development exercises that produce an transformational experience that will help you:

Explore vital skills to exercise appropriate delegation for high performance

Applying psychological principles and insights from management and communication frameworks, we guide you through practical models for effective delegation, outlining a measurable process that creates positive and productive environments.

2. Improve quality, performance and engagement with effective feedback

Feedback can be a positive and productive opportunity to enhance connection and trust with individuals in your team. Knowing when and how to provide relevant and specific feedback is an essential skill to navigate poor performance and low levels of engagement.

Applying insights from psychology to inform behaviour, we provide the tools, scenarios and methodologies to foster a culture of high performance and psychologically safe feedback.

Address the challenges of authority and power dynamics to enhance the feedback process

3. Engage and empower with effective expectation management

Clear and consistent communication is the tool of every impactful and influential leader. By managing expectations, you can avoid frustration, confusion and low morale.

Applying insights from psychology, neuroscience and communication, we provide emerging leaders with essential tools to build individual and team cohesion, starting with a decision to prioritise agreed activity, manage promises and ensure everyone knows what is required from them and each other.

4. Create Psychological Safety 

We help leaders exercise self-reflection and self-awareness to ensure they self-regulate through the challenging highs and lows of their leadership to build a positive culture where psychological safety is prioritised.

Responsibly applying our psychological expertise, we provide leaders with the tools and skills to manage the diverse needs and challenges of individuals within the team, to build psychologically safe cultures that perform better.

This means they are able to unlock employee engagement through positive, productive and respectful communication in diverse settings, including 1 on 1 and team meetings, presentation and reporting, and influential stakeholder management.

Integrating psychological principles with management and communication frameworks, we step through how to use specific touchpoints with individuals, your team and greater stakeholders to drive engagement, impact and positive results.
