You and I both caused a $50 Billion dollar waste...here's what we can do about it
Globally, organisations are wasting over $50 Billion a year on leadership development. We’re simply not lifting leadership capability overall; we still rely on ‘hero’ leaders and ‘stars’ in our teams, to really get stuff done…and that’s not scalable.
Why? We don’t focus on the behaviours that really matter in a given context and we don’t measure return on investment, through applied results.
Make it matter with the “one change to rule them all” – updating your leadership and organisational development approaches to focus on Behavioural Insights.
Cultivating insights from behavioural economics and cognitive neuroscience, we develop your ability to understand and mitigate the limitations of your own brain - and all the other brains around you.
A Behavioural Insights focus will ensure you and your team learn faster. And make better decisions.
Organisations exist in an increasingly competitive, disrupted landscape. Yet the fundamental behaviours of human beings haven’t changed a lot over hundreds of thousands of years. We help organisations leverage this understanding, to innovate and win.

Prerequisites for Attendees
My presentation title and key themes are clearly highlighted in two pieces of research:
- A Human Capital Magazine article on leadership development spend
- Two McKinsey articles on why leadership programs fail and what's missing from leadership development
If participants read these (estimated time: approx 10 minutes) prior to the session, they will start from a more informed place.
