Welcome to THE LEADER’s MAP
The blended online programme for emerging leaders
who are the emerging leaders in your organisation?
Do they have the leadership skills to fly, not flop?
Are they “too busy” for leadership training?
WHO IS THE LEADER’s MAP FOR?
Here’s a staggering fact: 44 percent of emerging leaders feel unprepared for their role. And 87 percent wish they’d had more training beforehand.
With that in mind, The Leader’s Map is for anyone in a role where skilled leadership is critical for success, including:-
✔ First time leaders in your organisation
✔ Mid level leaders looking to improve their leadership capability
✔ Aspiring leaders soon to move into their first leadership role
✔ Leaders with little or no prior leadership training
✔ Leaders who are under performing or struggling with some aspect of their role
Provide leadership training and support BEFORE your leaders set sail, and you’ll not only increase their confidence and capability, you’ll improve the performance of their team too.
Why a leadership programme with an online component?
The link between learning programmes and leader quality is 46 percent stronger when technology is used heavily.
It’s flexible learning at its finest. Your leaders can study anywhere, anytime.
Compared with traditional learning, using an online component will save your organisation a significant amount of time and money. It follows the 70/20/10 rule of training, requiring your leaders to try out and practice what they’ve learnt, as they go along.
It provides you with easy, real time updates and feedback on their progress.
The best way to use The Leader’s Map is as a blended programme, where your emerging leaders do the modules individually, but supplement this with group reflection and learning. We’ll work with you on the best way to do this.

For the customised version, we can even include a project module that provides growth opportunities for your emerging leaders as part of the course.

Support THEIR PERSONAL growth as AN EMERGING leader
ALIGN WITH THE STRATEGIC PRIORITIES OF YOUR ORGANISATION.
DEMONSTRATE THEIR ABILITY TO APPLY SOMETHING THEY HAVE LEARNED DURING THE PROGRAMME
Manager’s Resource Centre
The Manager’s Resource Centre provides the direct manager of the participant with the ability to track their progress. It also gives tips and tools on how to actively support the participant as they progress through the modules.
Measurement, Tracking And Ongoing Support
The Leader’s Map also includes the capability to track and assess the effectiveness of the course. This allows you to ensure every user is actively engaged in training, and serves as an indicator for the potential need to assist the participant.
Can THE LEADER’s MAP be customised for our organisation?
Absolutely! The Leader’s Map is fully customisable for your specific organisational needs. This includes, but is not limited to the following areas:
✔ Company branding (logos, colouring, images etc.).

✔ People leaders who are underperforming, and struggling with certain aspects of their role as a manager.
✔ Individuals who do not have direct reports, but are in cross-functional leadership roles without authority (e.g. key project management roles), where skilled leadership is critical to their success.

Can I customise THE LEADER’S MAP for our organisation and if so, what does it cost?
Absolutely! The Leader’s Map is fully customisable for your organisation. This includes, but is not limited to the following areas:
✔ Company branding (logos, coloring, images etc.).
✔ Inclusion and integration of relevant company material, such as strategy and corporate values “baked” into the content.
✔ Tailoring of particular module material to reflect current your specific organisational language and concepts and other leadership initiatives in your organisation
✔ Provision for leaders (such as the CEO) to record a “Welcome” Message to participants or other short video leadership stories to increase relevance and connection with participants.
✔ Linking of materials to any key business performance metrics.
By choosing the Fully Customised option of The Leader’s Map, the costs of alignment around concepts and language are included in a one-time set up cost of + GST.
This includes Suzi’s time to collect specific needs and edits you have to create a customisable option that can adapt to branding, layout and language of your organisation. The setup fee is used to create a completely customised platform for you.
Can we tailor the content to complement or supplement our current training programmes and strategy?
If you choose the Customised version of The Leader’s Map, you can customise content to complement or reinforce your current training programmes. The Leader’s Map can therefore serve as a reinforcement of your current training programmes, or provide an alternative. We can even add in another module to the programme to accommodate a key strategic thrust of your organisation.
How long does it take to complete the course?
The Leader’s Map is designed so that leaders can work at their own pace. That’s the beauty of The Leader’s Map, the training works around your schedule, not the other way around. Leaders can log on and work through the modules any time, any place. However, you wouldn’t want to complete a module any faster than in one week and we recommend taking approximately 9-12 months to work through the 8 modules of the course.
If we adopt the customised version of The Leader’s Map for our organisation, do our leaders have to follow the programme in linear fashion, or can they ‘pick and mix’?
They can do either. By adopting the licensed version of The Leader’s Map, it’s not 100% necessary to undertake the lessons in a linear fashion, but we do recommend this approach, merely because each module builds on the next. But by choosing the licensed version, your leaders can choose what module is applicable to them.
The pick and mix approach can be very useful for more senior leaders within your organisation who want to brush up on certain topics, or who have been identified as having development needs in that particular topic. For example, you may have a more senior leader who is struggling with delegation and time management. They can hop onto the membership site, go to Module Four and check out the materials, resources and lessons on delegation and managing priorities. They don’t have to do the whole course, just the ones that are applicable.
That’s the beauty of investing in the customised, licensing option. You have unlimited access for all your leaders. Our recommendation for most participants would be to work through the eight modules in linear fashion, but this is not a must do. By purchasing the monthly license, you have full access for any leader in your organisation to any of the modules. Even your senior leadership team can use it as a leadership development resource!
