Every experience matters

Strategies and skill sets that made organisations successful in years gone by, aren’t the same ones that will carry us forward into the future. Our current workforce is under heightened stress levels, and many team members in their efforts to stay ahead, could be unwittingly approaching burnout. People need effective and inspiring leaders to clear hurdles and connect how their everyday work relates to the organisation’s strategic goals.

At Blanchard Aotearoa New Zealand, we understand the challenges your leaders are facing, and we have worked to understand the mindsets and skill sets that are essential to leadership success for over 40 years. We have the experience and the innovative approach required to empower leaders to build deeper relationships—with their people, work, and organisation—making as many days as possible inspiring, motivating, and meaningful for all.

Great leadership starts with you

Leadership isn’t just about managing others—it starts with being a self-aware and empathetic self-leader. At Blanchard, we help people at all levels develop critical self-leadership skills, take responsibility for their success, and understand how to get results in today’s virtual and hybrid workplaces.

Self Leadership

Empower your employees to challenge their assumed constraints, feel empowered, determine what they need to succeed, and proactively ask for it.

Essential Motivators™

Gives learners a better understanding of their own characteristics, qualities and preferences for work, along with a framework to help identify their pattern of core psychological needs, values, talents, and behaviours.

Conversational Capacity®

Teaches people how to be mindful of the triggers that throw them out of the conversational sweet spot. Gives skills and tools to enable a balance of candour and curiosity to get the greatest benefit out of the most challenging conversations.

Leadership that inspires performance

At Blanchard, we believe that every person deserves a great manager—and has the ability to become one as well. It starts with our SLII® leadership development framework, which teaches people how to lead situationally and provide the right support and direction at the right time. Next, we teach managers how to improve their communication skills and learn how to use them to build trust among their team members. With these essentials in place, we help leaders evolve into great coaches who can inspire and support their people’s success.

Define a leadership vision for your organisation’s future

One thing that all great companies have in common is a clearly defined vision for the future, and what it’s going to take—from everyone—to get there. At Blanchard, we help leadership teams define a compelling leadership perspective, and learn how to share it with others to drive engagement, foster an inclusive culture, and align everyone’s work to meet the organisation’s goals.
