“There is nothing permanent except change.” – (Heraclitus)
The business environment is transforming faster than ever before!
Plans can become obsolete over night and must be adapted if goals are to be achieved.
Leaders have to deal with fundamental change quickly and effectively if organisations are to survive. This demands agile structures, excellent communication systems and a culture which embraces change. Most crucially, success through rapid change requires that teams remain aligned and committed to a common vision.

“You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things” (Mother Teresa).
A Mastermind Group is a gathering of 7-10 participants, who meet for no longer than 90 minutes, once a week, over 8-10 weeks. The aim of these meetings is to explore current challenges which they are facing, share experiences and develop solutions which are rooted in fundamental leadership principles.
Mastermind Groups broaden leadership skills and, behavioural change is facilitated through the use of Accountability Partnerships. An Accountability Partnership is where members of the group commit to mutual support on their development journey; resulting in an improved likelihood that all will reach their personal goals.
“Only I can change my life, no one can do it for me.” (Carol Burnett)
Our Executive Coaching programme is a series of one-to-one, and group, interactions designed to create sustained improvement in personal performance. Our sessions are conducted in-person and remotely, using video Skype and similar applications. Consequently, we work with clients globally and locally, without compromising on the quality of our work together.
Coaching is about many things, however, principally it is about growth. Our certified coaches will help to identify personal goals and challenges, agree on desired outcomes and work with clients to deliver measurable results.
Along the way, we will raise emotional intelligence and conscious awareness; enabling us to attain outcomes which we never dared to believe possible.
At AKA, we take a holistic approach to Coaching. Our lives are not compartmentalised into professional and personal; each will have an effect on the other. We explore these mutual influences and address them in tandem, to move clients to their next level of performance.
The global growth of Executive Coaching by forward-thinking organisations, reflects a new understanding of how crucial these skills truly are. The ability to inspire teams and unlock potential, in themselves and others, is a skill that every leader should have.
“Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” (William James)
Tailored Workshops: A Tailored Workshop is what it sounds like – a workshop tailored to a client’s leadership needs.
This is where the AKA team really comes into its own; our experts bring an impressive array of skills, knowledge and experience to the table. Based on clearly defined outcomes, we will produce and deliver content which precisely meets client needs.
The project coordinator will liaise closely with the client throughout, to ensure that we are on the same ‘page’. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Critical Success Factors (CSFs), will be embedded into the process to ensure that expectations are thoroughly and completely met.
Examples of recently delivered workshops include Leading Through Change, The Leadership Challenge and The 5 Levels of Leadership.
LUNCH 'N' LEARNS
“Every tomorrow will look exactly like yesterday, UNLESS you start to do something differently today.” (John Maxwell)
A Lunch’n’Learn is a 30-60 minute, interactive exercise on an area identified by the client, as being of particular relevance.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, goal setting, team cohesiveness, empowerment and influence.
These soundbites are designed to address a specific impediment to improved performance and, how to overcome it; they will often lead to more detailed interactions such as Coaching, Mastermind Groups, Tailored Workshops and other Events.
