Leadership & Manager
The days of ‘command and control’ are over. Today’s business world is about ‘engaging and unleashing’ your workforce. Leaders and managers must be equipped to deal with the complexities of matrix organisational structures, increased generational diversity, talent shortages, and so much more.
The spotlight is firmly on leadership at all levels and they need the right training to step up and meet these challenges head on.
From one-off events, to 12-month learning journeys, we can design and deliver Learning & Development experiences that drive the positive change in your people you are looking for.

High Performing Team
Attrition is up. Productivity is down. Fatigue is high. Motivation is low. And paying people more isn’t going to solve any of these issues for you. What will, is remembering this simple fact - humans are tribal by nature. We have an innate need to belong to a group, a tribe, a team. That need goes into overdrive during times of change and uncertainty, like for example when facing a global pandemic that continues to drag on. Unfortunately, the past two plus years of sanitized and socially distanced living has eroded our tribal connections and left teams in turmoil.
As we stare headlong into another year of COVID induced chaos, this year is shaping up to be a make or break year for many businesses. History tells us those who double down and invest in their people and teams rise above the rest at times like these. That’s where we come in. We offer half day, 2-day and 6-month team journeys to reconnect and rebuild your team’s tribe vibe!
Stories engage and entertain us. They fascinate and focus our attention. They inspire and induce action. That is why we use them.
Our team of adventurous souls have summited the highest mountains, rowed across oceans, surfed the biggest waves on the planet, explored the frozen Poles, and so much more.
Hear their stories of inspiration, adversity, and resilience in various formats - as a motivational keynote address, as a video based workshop, or as a highly immersive simulated team experience.

"The Sparring Partners have been a tremendous asset to our teams here at Microsoft. Their insights, approach, and presence combine to help drive highly impactful and effective engagements. They have worked successfully with some of our most senior leaders in both individual and team settings, and have stepped just as easily onto the stage to lead multi-day engagements with very large-group audiences. They are excellent coach and brainstorming partners, think systemically about event/content/team effectiveness design, and collaborate extremely well across both internal and external stakeholder groups."
