individual participant

"This course has enabled me to recognise my team members strengths, personality type (counsellor, advisor etc) and will help me in the future on how I deal with these team members is most situations. I believe that this course can be extended to a three (3) day course as in the course I attended the interaction and engagement between the trainer and the trainees was great."

-Individual Course Participant



NSW Nurses & Midwive's Association

"Fantastic trainer excellent engagement stimulated discussion. One of the best leadership sessions I have done."

The course was good and I learnt some new and practical ways to deal with issues particularly performance management."

-NSW Nurses & Midwive's Association



Moama RSL

"I have never been involved in any course like this before and felt very comfortable with Andrew as he has a great vibe and energy level and made the course entertaining and fun. Thank you Andrew."

"I have been on many courses that had content that I needed, then walked away not quite getting it because of the delivery. The delivery of this course was brilliant and that's what made the difference."

"I really enjoy a course when it is mixed with personal examples from the trainer. This confirms and reinforces the lesson, quite often in an entertaining way which helps us all to remember. Well Done Andrew."

-Moama RSL



ACIAR

"Eric was a awesome Trainer, he was such an inspirational person, the real leadership experiences he shared really helped me stay focused. I found this course to be a great refresher and I will be able to use the tools provided throughout the two days. Thanks!"

"Eric was fantastic, his ability to give detailed, specific examples invaluable. He has so much experience and knowledge to share, he is so inspirational to listen too."

"Eric did a fantastic job teaching this session. He knew the subject well and taught with a lot of enthusiasm. I especially enjoyed hearing about his experiences in in the military. He would bring it back and tie it into the lessons and make them applicable to the course. I will be recommending him to everyone I know how may be in need of a facilitator for Leadership Development Training."

-ACIAR



Smoke Alarm Solutions

"The activities which were integrated in to the course we very well timed to keep energy and engagement levels high. Richard also clearly had knowledge of our company, however I felt was very successful in integrated that knowledge in to his presentation in a way that was meaningful and linked the course to our particular situation. It was also fantastic that Richard has real world experience in management staff and spoke about his own experience to assist our understanding of what we could achieve."

"I got a lot out of the course on both a business and personal level in regards to self-awareness and communication skills. I felt having a training with a successful business background instantly gave me confidence in his ability as a trainer."

-Smoke Alarm Solutions



JJ Richards and Sons Pty Ltd

"I found learning about the different management styles very useful. Understanding how to approach and handle different circumstances that may pop up during work hours and during personal events."

"Richard was great in changing the course on the run to suit what the student’s needs were , I needed some information on conflict resolution and it was implemented very well and I felt that it gave the course a more personal touch rather then read the book and answer the question type course . Loved the entire course and would love to do more of this type training."

"Ann was very much in touch with the delivery material, gave ample examples of scenarios that related to the subject, very good at engaging the audience including those who were less inclined to participate. Also recommended good reads that were relevant to good management."

"I have a better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses and a better understanding who my people are in the team. The four fundamentals discussed in learning to adapt, telling, participate and delegating."

-JJ Richards and Sons Pty Ltd



WA Country Health Service Great Southern

"I was quite nervous and unsure of how the training would be tailored but Jill was an excellent trainer that quickly put everyone at ease and ensured a comfortable and safe environment for the participants. She was responsive to participants requirements and this enabled the coursed to progress according to the needs of the participants while still covering off all the components of the training. An interesting, informative and beneficial course that made me step outside of my comfort zone and challenged my thinking in a positive way."

"I was quite nervous prior to attending the course, the trainer created a safe learning environment and I really enjoyed the two-day course. The activities used to reinforce what had been learned were great - I feel I am well placed to begin applying some of my learning's in the workplace and look forward to attending a refresher course later this year."

-WA Country Health Service Great Southern

Foreword:

The PD Training Leadership Development Training Program has been highly praised by our business clients as providing the essential skills required to be a talented leader are presented in a format that is both informative and empowering at the same time.   Our science-based approach has been proven to be effective in a range of industries!

Through patience, persistence and hard work, anyone can become a highly effective leader. PDT will provide you with all the tools required to improve your ability to lead others, but the responsibility is on you to implement the strategies taught in this course, and to identify and correct changes in certain behaviours which may be quite difficult.  The skills required to be a great team player are not always the same skills required to effectively lead the team. This is why Executive Leadership Development is so highly sought after by most successful companies. 

The primary role of a leader also requires a thorough understanding of the team’s needs, aspirations and concerns, so it is important to have excellent listening and facilitation skills as well as highly developed abilities to coach and mentor others. This Leadership and Development Training Program will teach you that effective leadership starts with a thorough understanding of oneself, which then allows you to support and lead others towards stated organisational goals.

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
