‘’The quality of leadership, more than any other single factor, determines the success or failure of an organisation’’.
The Extraordinary Leader
Good is not the same as excellent, and organisations today are constantly faced with challenges and changing environments, meaning that leadership effectiveness and extraordinary leaders are needed to deliver extraordinary results. The Extraordinary Leader Workshop is a proven and practical path towards realising and making extraordinary leaders; it features instruments, tools, and development approaches that increase leadership effectiveness and deliver positive results for your organisation.
The workshop comprises a one- or two-day interactive session, an exiting session, and an extraordinary leader-development experience organised by a certified Zenger–Folkman trainer.
The Extraordinary Coach
Effective coaches put the needs of their employees first—asking open questions, listening effectively, and being empathetic. They increase the engagement of their employees within their organisation and help them to achieve and deliver their best. In this way, employees feel valued and are more willing to go the extra mile to ensure their organisation’s success and excellence.
During a one-day session, the workshop programme, organised by an experienced and certified Zenger–Folkman trainer, helps leaders to become better coaches.
The Inspiring Leader
Inspiring and motivating employees is the ultimate challenge for any leader. An inspiring leader generates continuous positive energy, commitment, and enthusiasm among the members of their team; their employees are optimistic, full of confidence, and perform on a higher level than they would under a leader without such abilities and competencies.

Advancing the Extraordinary Leader
Leadership development is an ongoing process, and excellent leaders continuously strive to improve their skills. The Extraordinary Leader method has helped many good leaders become excellent leaders through skill identification and improvement. ‘Advancing the Extraordinary Leader’, is an important supplement designed to take leadership to the next level.
The ‘Advancing the Extraordinary Leader’ workshop is given according to a half-day format. Prior to the workshop, managers, colleagues and subordinates of the participants fill in a 360-degree feedback questionnaire by which the strengths and weaknesses of each participant are identified and analysed.
What makes a leader a leader? Which characteristics lead to effective leadership? It is important that leaders know their opportunities for development, and that they utilise this knowledge from the beginning of their leadership career. These two questions help leaders gain insights into their abilities and how to develop them.
The impact leaders have on the productivity of those they lead is critical and can lead to exceptional business results. Research conducted by Zenger–Folkman revealed that there are six ‘levers’ or critical competencies that effective leaders may use to gain influence and improve their organisation: Innovation, Relationships, Acumen, Inspiration, Strategic Vision and Execution.
