The Masterclass Series

The Masterclass Series is a one-off event that showcases the most powerful tools and techniques we have used throughout 2021. It is our way of sharing our knowledge with others as part of our mission to see more NZ businesses evolve to thrive in this rapidly changing world.

These masterclasses are designed to support NZ businesses and build internal capability.

Classes are $495 pp + GST ($100 of which will be donated to the Auckland City Mission)

Balancing Traditional and Adaptive Leadership

Our rapidly changing environment means adaptation is critical to success. But how do leaders shift their role and their relationship with their employees and customers? Traditionally, leaders have largely been successful through rank. In an adaptive organisation, leaders work differently – as a visionary, collaborator, systems-thinker and coach. It is not simply shifting to empowering leadership, but balancing different stances.

In our transformation work, one of the critical success factors has been leadership development. In this masterclass, we will share these experiences to help you. You will learn: 

  • Identify the right balance of traditional and adaptive leadership based on the complexity of the work
  • Understand the new mindsets and capabilities to transform themselves, their teams, and the organisation
  • Learn the range of leadership stances necessary for today’s changing environment.
  • Learn how to focus on outcomes over actions
  • Balance autonomy and accountability
  • Develop deeper insights into building and leading an adaptive organisation

This Masterclass is limited to 20 people. 

Cost: $495 + GST per person

Shifting from Annual to Quarterly Planning

In order to be responsive to a changing landscape, adaptive organisations have moved from annual planning to quarterly planning. A disciplined, structured approach to planning is often a significant shift for organisations and requires different thinking, along with a different set of techniques and practices.

We have helped many New Zealand organisations significantly improve how they prioritise, plan and deliver work in frequent, smaller stages. In this hands-on masterclass, we will share our knowledge of what works and what doesn’t. You will learn:

Designing an Adaptive Organisation

Stories of failed transformations litter the business landscape.  Some organisations start with bottom-up change and set-up multiple agile squads, only to find those squads struggle with an operating model that no longer supports their ways of working. Other organisations try top-down transformation, led by executives and based on operating models borrowed from other companies. Many undergo years of effort and investment but are unable to improve their culture, ways of working and ultimately their business results. 

Our team has decades of experience leading significant change in some of New Zealand’s leading organisations. As a result, we have developed a unique approach to designing organisations that are adaptive, resilient, enjoyable and profitable. 

In this masterclass, designed for senior leaders and executives, we will share our approach and key insights gleaned from the coalface. You will learn: 

  • Design principles for an adaptive organisation
  • How to develop your North Star – from Intent to Direction 
  • The role of leadership and management and why both matter 
  • Managing and governing both traditional and contemporary ways of working
