Leading and working in teams is integral to successfully achieving business goals in any organisation. Likewise, agility and the ability to quickly form into teams that perform are essential skills for responding to changing conditions.
In our experience most team work is focused on ‘what’ the task at hand is. Yet focus should be on ‘how’ that team will work together to get the team to perform. Our Superior Team Performance Coaching programs tap into exclusive coaching methods, tools and knowledge resources to build frameworks for ‘how’ people work together.
The program is based on situational and needs analysis. We structure programs that are tailored to a team’s specific needs and are efficient and productive. This ensures that the team gets the input it needs without too much time out of action.
Our group workshops follow best-practice adult learning principles and are highly interactive. We integrate workshop learning with follow-up coaching and work-based assignments to make sure ideas are quickly put into action. We back-up the program with our unique performance guarantee and 12-month service warranty to ensure results are sustained for the long term.

Executive Central’s I-WE-YOU leadership model is a practical and effective framework that we coach organizational leaders to use. It is one of the key pieces of leadership intellectual property we have developed based on extensive research and professional practice.
I-WE-YOU describes the shift of focus and value delivery that leaders must make as they evolve and unlock their full leadership potential.
The I-WE-YOU framework helps support clients to grow their own leadership and that of the broader organisation.
I-WE-YOU LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK
Executive Central has developed a 360° Capability Assessment Tool built around our pragmatic I-WE-YOU leadership framework.
We tailor the survey to ensure all elements of individual client needs are thoroughly investigated and language is consistent. The LCAT produced detailed and powerful insights about the participant’s leadership style and effectiveness.
It surveys the perspectives of participants, their manager/s and professional observers or colleagues. This produces a detailed report of competencies across 12 components of the I-WE-YOU leadership framework.
ECOS is Executive Central’s exclusive on-line tool for measuring and assessing emotional intelligence.
A person’s level of emotional intelligence is a major determinant of his/her ability to achieve superior results with and through people they interact with.
ECOS uses a simple menu driven structure to enable users to plot their operating style and the style of other people, quickly and accurately. Users receive comprehensive information about each of the six Operating Style to help them significantly improve their self-awareness and their awareness of how others prefer to operate.
These insights greatly improve the results people can achieve by working with and through others.
ECOS can be licensed for use from Executive Central.
Our Leadership Snapshot is a lean assessment based on the LCAT.
We tailor the survey to ensure all elements of individual client needs are investigated and language is his consistent. The Leadership Snapshot produces detailed and powerful insights about the participant’s leadership style and effectiveness.

The Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic analyses the strengths and weaknesses of your organization and its teams through an online survey. It provides an overall score for organizational effectiveness — the Organizational Effectiveness Measure (OEM) – and from this, the degree to which your organizational culture is either helping or hindering innovation can be determined.
We have long been able to measure individual performance through 360 measures. Now the the Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic applies a tool backed by scientific rigour to produce that perspective and data for understanding an organization’s cultural effectiveness for innovation.
We have identified nine capacities through extensive research in the educational and business sectors. The capacities are critical for a culture of innovation and collaboration. Learn more.
