The world's best transformational leadership development

Our mission

WorkSmart Australia is a business that supports the development of truly conscious, mindful leaders predominately in a commercial setting. Leaders who are a model of compassion, ethics, honesty, mindfulness, commercial success and caring. Leaders who help us understand that doing well and doing good are 2 sides of the same leadership coin.

We started this business with a deep intent to make the world a better place, a more caring, conscious and honest place. Our disciplined measurement of this success is by organisational engagement score. But we aim to impact more than engagement. Our work also positively affects people's mental health, personal relationships, family relationships and even the way they raise their children.

What we do

We are Australia's only master certified trainers in the world's most researched leadership model, The Leadership Challenge®.. Our work however extends well beyond this model into other important leadership and team based competencies and behaviours.

We develop senior, middle and front line leadership effectiveness and overall staff engagement. Our process is long term and transformational, includes measurement, alignment consulting, leadership consulting, leadership training, leadership coaching, and some completely unique and ground-breaking solutions that make learning and growth really stick.

The majority of our client engagements involve organisation or division-wide leadership development that supports change initiatives and/or whole culture change. Our track record with major Australian and global organisations speaks for itself.

Why work with us?

  1. Because we make a measurable difference to your organisation. For example, one of our recent clients achieved a 7% jump in overall employee engagement, a reduction from 22% to 12% in staff turnover and a zero % loss of high potential talent over the duration of a long term program with us.
