The Five Cs® Leadership Transformation Program

Why does no-one tell you the ‘people part’ of leadership is the hardest part?

Whether it’s delivering feedback, managing performance and personalities, inspiring action, or driving your team towards a positive culture; the challenge is very real.

Your success as a leader depends on your ability to get the best out of your people because people drive performance.
But before you can lead others, you must first lead yourself. Leadership starts with you. It requires an inside out approach. You need to model the behaviour you want to see in others.

LEARN MORE

What are ‘The Five Cs®’ and how will they transform my leaders?

The Five Cs® is a five-step sequential model of building blocks that underpin effective communication and leadership success. 

The model is elegantly simple and provides a clear path to self-improvement that will help you build relationships of influence, create psychological safety in a team, control your emotions, increase self-awareness, improve your mindset, and enable you to respond consistently and calmly in a difficult conversation.

The Five Cs® in summary:

Choice

Who you are and who you want to be? 
Improving your leadership starts with making a choice about the sort of leader and communicator you want to be. In this module you’ll learn why an inside-out approach of self-leadership, mindset, and personal responsibility is key to success.

Control

Once you’ve made a choice about how you want to show up as a leader, you need the emotional intelligence to be able to regulate your response. In this module you’ll learn how to increase your self-awareness, manage your emotions under pressure, and empathise with others to build connection and trust.

Consideration

There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to communication and leadership. People have different communication styles, preferences, backgrounds, life experiences and truths. No-one thinks exactly like you; that’s why consideration is key. Success is in the preparation and in this module you’ll learn how to tailor your approach to achieve the results you need.

Courage

You don’t have to be an extrovert to lead and communicate effectively but you do have to be brave. It’s about courage, not confidence. In this module you’ll learn the elements of courageous leadership and how to develop them to earn respect.

Communication

The last of the five steps to effective leadership and communication is applying communication skills. It’s not the starting point. You must do the thinking first and that reflection is found in the four foundational steps. In this module you’ll learn about body language, tone, listening, and putting your consideration pre-work into action with conversations that connect.

Why are people more likely to implement the trade marked Five Cs® approach than other models?

The success of The Five Cs® lies in its simplicity. The step-by-step model lays the foundations for effective leadership and can be applied by anyone, in any role, in any industry.

Because it is sequential, the Five Cs® is straightforward to follow and implement, ensuring significant results for those who are willing to put their learnings into practice.

How does investing in The Five Cs® Leadership Transformation Program deliver more value than a one-off training session?

While it’s not uncommon for individuals to experience significant ‘lightbulb’ moments in my one-off training sessions that lead to immediate improvements to the way they communicate, if it’s ‘lights on’ behavioural change that you’re after, The Five Cs® Leadership Transformation Program delivers.

Repetition reaps rewards and the risk of reverting decreases with each program session as participants embed their learnings, discard destructive habits, and create new foundations.

This accountability accelerates action and equips leaders with the mindset, strategies and tools over a 12-month period to develop a thriving, high performing team.

  • I have learnt so much from this course it’s hard to put into words. I came from a place of negativity “another leadership course” to “wow where has that year gone, I want more”.
