~ Steve Jobs

MBTI or DISC?
DISC and MBTI are the two most popular behavioural profiles used by organisations around the world. We are frequently asked which is the most appropriate instrument to use when helping teams perform better.
As we have been involved in the use of both for many years, we have provided a short summary of the features of both instruments in the attached article.
Our Rural Leader's Bootcamp has already exceeded expectations for 2012 with two programs completed in WA and a third to start Brisbane at the end April.
If you want to be in line for a fresh and challenging approach to leadership skilling do book into one of the upcoming programs. "I totally loved the program. It busted me and then put me back together. More importantly it gave me a greater self awareness and the realisation that it was up to me to achieve what I wanted".

Selective Behavioural ModellingTM (SBM)
have been grappling with the expense, time taken and frustration of low
impact in implementing culture change, then you are not on your own.
For a number of years, we have been frustrated with the expense many
organisations incur to initiate culture shift – and yes, the surface
often looks squeaky clean however the further down and further out you
go, the more it remains the same.
Behavioural Modelling™ (SBM) is an innovative approach to embedding
specific, high leverage, universal behaviours into an organisation and
empirically measuring their presence in day-to-day human interactions.
is elegant, simple and can be actioned by literally thousands in an
organisation simultaneously. SBM™ breaks many paradigms - Time,
Expense, Logistics – to achieve high impact change. SBM™ comes with
sophisticated software that provides instant feedback. Tested in a wide
range or organisations - State and Federal Government Departments,
Global organisations (Banks, Financial Institutions, IT companies);
Mining companies, Universities – and cultures (Australia, Europe, Asia),
the program shows robustness.
We are excited to be part of the delivery of this pioneering initiative. For more information please contact us…..
For some time now, we have been assessing sales teams objectively through
the cycle as part of team performance improvement. To-date, we have
undertaken this by visually watching individuals go about their work.
This was important as it enabled the establishment of a robust framework that examined actual behaviours in the sales cycle and behaviours about managing self.
The model is called the Lattice Framework®. The latest development of
this program has been to launch the assessment on a 360 Degree software
platform which enables individuals to be assessed by others (both
internal and external to the organisation).
How do experienced sales people perceive their skills? To launch the program, we invited experienced sales people who are
involved in Territory or Key Account management selling to provide us
with a norm of perceptions. The majority of respondents came from
Australia, however Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the United
States are also represented. To obtain a copy of the report, please
Robinson is known and revered by Human Resource professionals world-wide. His keynote presentation at the Australian
Human Resources Institute’s national conference brought home to us what an
intellect this man is and how many of his ideas are plain commonsense.
"It is often said that education and training are the keys to the future. But a key can be turned in two directions. Turn it one way
and you lock resources away, even from those they belong to. Turn it the
other way and you release resources and give people back to themselves.
To realize our true creative potential—in our organisations, in our
schools and in our communities—we need to think differently about
ourselves and to act differently towards each other. We must learn to be
creative." —Ken Robinson
