Modules 1 & 2



6 units, 6 videos, 6 workbooks, 3 hours

Business and life intertwine. How you are in life is reflected in how you are as a leader. Learn to understand:

Who you are; What drives you; and What are your natural behaviours, responses and thinking patterns in order to determine if they are getting you the outcomes you want for you and your teams.


Your Mindset

6 units, 6 videos, 6 workbooks, 3 hours

Do you have a fixed or growth mindset? Do you believe your thinking is fixed or can it change? What are your life values and beliefs, vision and mission, identity and purpose? Then you can understand who you are, what you stand for, what’s important to you and why you do what you do – that gives you the tools to move forward with confidence and certainty about you.

Modules 3 & 4



Your “How To” Guide

5 units, 5 videos, 5 workbooks, 2.5 hours

Having structure in our lives is directly linked with us achieving our dreams and goals. But we tend to run around doing the doing. But are we being proactive? Do we have a plan? It starts with knowing your goals, your benchmarks of success and your strategies to create the results you want. They are the tools to achieving your personal performance potential.


Your Action

5 units, 5 videos, 5 workbooks, 2.5 hours

What holds you back from taking action? Do you stay comfortably stuck where you are? Does fear hold you back? The key to action comes from knowing what motivates you, your strengths and challenges, and your habits and rituals. What are you focussing on to achieve your results? How are you building self trust? At the core of taking action is your ability to be flexible your thinking and behaviour – to see the opportunities, possibilities and options.

Module 5



Your Communication

5 units, 5 videos, 5 workbooks, 2.5 hours

Did you know that 93% of our communication is nonverbal? Our language becomes more about how we say the words, how we sit, look, move, what we wear, our eye movements, our tonality – they all tell a story. It’s our physiology, tonality and rapport that mainly impacts our communication with others. And then it’s the actual conversations we have, the people we surround ourselves with, and the mentoring and guidance that supports our communication style and impact.

At the end of the course, students work through a course checklist, ensuring that they have passed all quizzes, and then proceed to download their course certificate. We provide instructions on how to load their certificate and our LinkedIn microcredential to their LinkedIn profile, signalling to employers that they are job-ready.
