Our leadership development approach

Leadership is a challenging task, and requires a sophisticated approach to developing effective leadership skills. To achieve this, humansoftware believes individuals need to build self-awareness and the ability to create and manage powerful connections with others.

Developing an individual leadership style takes personal reflection, adaption and a sense of purpose. When this leadership vision is combined with a commitment to wellbeing, inclusion and ethical behaviour, people and organisations can achieve well, overcome challenges and exceed expectations.

Success and wellness is key to performance, resilience and satisfaction. When we feel good about ourselves and others, we are more productive, relate better to others and gain more personal satisfaction.

In fact, humansoftware believe this so strongly, that it’s the reason we focus so acutely on helping organisations to build up the physical and emotional wellbeing of their people.

Through our extensive experience in the field of psychology, we recognise that coming to grips with why and how we operate can have substantial impacts on our work life, our personal life and all the human interactions that happen in-between. These relationships influence the culture of an organisation and the sense of value that we experience in the workplace and in our own personal lives.

By bringing together traditional leadership coaching with psychological insight we can assist people to make deeply personal and effective change. We assist people to be well, act well, and encourage well.

How we can help you
  • We help leaders define their own approach to leadership that allows them to manage people in a way that is intuitive, gives the leader confidence, and is a positive influence on people the leader interacts with.
  • We help leaders to lead in a way that engages others and drives performance. 
  • We help leaders to understand and act effectively in significant and emotionally-charged contexts.
  • We use a range of assessments, tools and practices such as ‘The Leadership Shadow’ and ‘The Leadership Circle’ as frameworks to explore contemporary leadership issues such as diversity, inclusion and wellbeing.
  • We support people to develop the emotional stamina needed to succeed in fast-paced, demanding and performance-based environments. 
  • We provide the skills leaders need to maintain momentum and continue to be proactive agents of adaptation and achievement. 
  • We help leaders to develop tools to manage when problems and challenges become too much, and to expand people’s abilities to navigate and move forward in the face of adversity. 
  • We assist those who have experienced absences from work, and who need support to become re-energised and re-focused in their career, as well as happy and healthy in themselves.

  • Having regular discussions with my executive mentor gave me the time and clarity to work through challenges of change.  Mandy brings such a calming yet contemplative way of forcing me to confront obstacles; to work on aspects within my control and to articulate and plan ways to implement what I need to do. Top sporting athletes continue to have coaches that help sharpen technique, in the same way it pivotal for professionals whether in the private, public or NGO to engage in ongoing coaching to assist with understanding when / why a different approach might be necessary. Thanks Mandy
  • I have learnt so much about myself and I have been able to challenge myself in ways I have never done so before. I have grown and progressed in ways I did not think were possible. I have not only been surprised at how far I have come, but have also been amazed at the strength and confidence I now have, which continues to build and grow within me. Thank you Michelle for all you have taught me and for all the tools you have provided.
  • When I started with Mandy I was consumed with what I had not been doing in my role, and how much I needed to improve to be the best I could be. I was comparing myself to others and feeling low in my confidence as a leader. When I finished our sessions, I walked away feeling sure of myself in my leadership and in my contribution to my job, organisation and the community.
  • I worked with Michelle and our time together has helped me enormously. I am in a headspace now that I never could have imagined when our sessions began; I am so much more kind to and gentle with myself today. I have discovered a lot about the way I am wired, and Michelle’s emphasis on mindfulness has allowed me to develop new coping mechanisms when confronted with anxiety and self-doubt.
