Leadership through self management

“Success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves - their strengths, their values, and how they best perform.” Peter F. Drucker, Leadership guru

Command and control leadership practices are no longer effective. It is imperative to embrace the new paradigm of leadership, focusing on the individual and creating high performing teams that are positive, solution centric and self-managed. Successful people management and leadership starts from the inside out.

Employees of today expect more from their leaders. They want to feel engaged in their role and work in a culture where they feel understood and valued. In order to create a positive, self-managed culture, encourage leaders and employees to stand up and be accountable for their own performance within their team.

The models presented within this program are all based on our fundamental philosophy of KOMO² .

The Growing Capability Gap


The increasing pace of change, overwhelming expectations and unrelenting ambiguity, dictate that today’s leaders need constantly evolving skills and capabilities. Further compounding this issue, they are often incredibly time poor and do not have time to dedicate to the growth of their team’s skills and development.

The result is that, as the pace of change accelerates, the capability gap widens.

This problem is not going to go away, the more leaders have to deal with, the less time they have to spend with their team, understanding their extrinsic and intrinsic motivators, knowing their strengths and areas of development opportunity. This is resulting in greater levels of disconnect and disengagement, talent turn-over and a decline in productivity and results. In fact, research shows that around 76% of Australians are disengaged in the workplace.


In order to resolve this issue, we need to put the responsibility back on the people and teach them how to manage themselves. We need to provide them with the tools and techniques required to assist them in becoming more self aware, understanding what is expected of them, how they can get the most out of themselves and where their areas of development opportunity are.

Performance Shift’s Leadership Through Self Management has been designed to encourage leaders and employees to first look within and understand their intrinsic and extrinsic motivators. By understanding what drives them, by knowing themselves, they are able to explore the best way to manage themselves ensuring maximum engagement and effectiveness. 

Leadership Through Self Management has been delivered to thousands of individuals. It continues to be Performance Shift’s most popular program as it will rapidly overhauls the mindset of participants. They walk away with new levels of personal insight and purpose and are in a position to drive themselves forward.
