Smart Choice

A personal development one-year journey in leadership, tailored to develop emerging leaders within any organisation, utilising seven core elements encapsulated within a personal development journey. Over twelve months the program affords participants the opportunity to develop their network with the leaders of tomorrow building relationships that will transcend careers and enable future success.


“Smart Choice leaders influence effective decision making throughout the organisation.”


Beginning with a two-day training seminar, participants experience each of the seven core modules, whilst encapsulating key learnings into a personal development plan.

This is followed by 12 months of supported learning, the provision of specific academic reference papers followed by the submission of individual participants’ assignments.

The program culminates with a final one-day workshop at which point participants will present their end of program assignment.


After attending this program, you will emerge with a rich tapestry of models, tools and tips to assist you in mapping out your personal development plan. In addition, you will benefit from one-to-one coaching to position you for future success whilst experiencing the tools to allow you to actively participate in the development of strategy within your organisation.


The program is ideal for those of you who have been recognised as smart, creative, and self-confident individuals with independent judgment, initiative, integrity, and commitment. Who are ambitious but recognise the need for personal development to create new opportunities, not only for yourself but your organisation, so as to become the leaders that you admire. The program is specifically targeting middle executive management and leaders of SMEs.
