Can THE LEADER’s MAP be customised for our organisation? 


Absolutely! The Leader’s Map is fully customisable for you and your specific organisational needs. This includes, but is not limited to the following areas:

Company branding (logos, coloring, images etc.).

Inclusion and integration of relevant company material, such as strategy and corporate values “baked” into the content.

Tailoring of particular module material to reflect specific organisational language and concepts and other leadership initiatives in your organisation

Provision for leaders (such as the CEO) to record a “welcome” message to participants, or other short video leadership stories to increase relevance and connection with participants.

Linking of materials to any key business performance metrics.

Most businesses struggle to find leadership training that is both cost effective and actually produces results. By choosing The Leader’s Map, you will equip your emerging leaders with the knowledge and skills to achieve both your strategy and vision.

Who is the leader’s Map For?

The Leader’s Map Accelerator Programme for Emerging Leaders has a number of key target managers. Who will benefit the most from The Leader’s Map? These types of leaders….

Emerging or “first time’ leaders within your organisation.

Mid level managers looking to improve or develop as a leader.

Aspiring managers or people soon to move into their first leadership role in your company.

Current managers who’ve already “cut their teeth” in leadership, & who are looking to develop their skills further. This may include managers who’ve had little to no prior leadership development.

People leaders who are underperforming, and struggling with certain aspects of their role as a manager.

Individuals who do not have direct reports, but are in cross-functional leadership roles without authority (e.g. key project management roles), where skilled leadership is critical to their success.


What is included in the leader’s Map, The Accelerator Programme for Emerging Leaders?

The Leader’s Map Programme includes: 8 modules, each with 

✔ At least 3 lessons on a crucial leadership topic for emerging leaders

✔ Downloadable PDF workbooks

✔ Topical resources

✔ Relevant blog posts

✔ Videos & articles on the module topic

✔ Video lessons

✔ Measurement, tracking and ongoing support. The Leader’s Map also includes the capability to track and assess the effectiveness of the course.  


Can I customise Elevate for our organisation and if so, what does it cost?

Absolutely! The Leader’s Map is fully customisable for your organisation. This includes, but is not limited to the following areas:

Company branding (logos, coloring, images etc.).

Inclusion and integration of relevant company material, such as strategy and corporate values “baked” into the content. 

Tailoring of particular module material to reflect current your specific organisational language and concepts and other leadership initiatives in your organisation

Provision for leaders (such as the CEO) to record a “Welcome” Message to participants or other short video leadership stories to increase relevance and connection with participants.   

Linking of materials to any key business performance metrics.

By choosing the Fully Customised option of The Leader’s Map, the costs of alignment around concepts and language are included in a one-time set up cost of $9,450.00 + GST. 

This includes Suzi’s time to collect specific needs and edits you have to create a customisable option that can adapt to branding, layout and language of your organisation. The setup fee is used to create a completely customised platform for you. 


Can we tailor the content to complement or supplement our current training programmes and strategy?

If you choose the Customised version of The Leader’s Map, you can customise content to complement or reinforce your current training programmes. The Leader’s Map can therefore serve as a reinforcement of your current training programmes, or provide an alternative. We can even add in another module to the programme to accommodate a key strategic thrust of your organisation.


How long does it take to complete the course?

The Leader’s Map is designed so that leaders can work at their own pace. That’s the beauty of The Leader’s Map, the training works around your schedule, not the other way around. Leaders can log on and work through the modules any time, any place. However, you wouldn’t want to complete a module any faster than in one week and we recommend taking approximately 3 months to work through the 8 modules of the course. 


If we adopt the customised version of The Leader’s Map for our organisation, do our leaders have to follow the programme in linear fashion, or can they ‘pick and mix’?

They can do either. By adopting the licensed version of The Leader’s Map, it’s not 100% necessary to undertake the lessons in a linear fashion, but we do recommend this approach, merely because each module builds on the next. But by choosing the licensed version, your leaders can choose what module is applicable to them. 

The pick and mix approach can be very useful for more senior leaders within your organisation who want to brush up on certain topics, or who have been identified as having development needs in that particular topic. For example, you may have a more senior leader who is struggling with delegation and time management. They can hop onto the membership site, go to Module Four and check out the materials, resources and lessons on delegation and managing priorities. They don’t have to do the whole course, just the ones that are applicable. 

That’s the beauty of investing in the customised, licensing option. You have unlimited access for all your leaders. Our recommendation for most participants would be to work through the eight modules in linear fashion, but this is not a must do. By purchasing the monthly license, you have full access for any leader in your organisation to any of the modules. Even your senior leadership team can use it as a leadership development resource!


What is the minimum sign up period for the licensing arrangement?

12 months. If you sign up for three years, the cost savings are significant.
