Award-winning programmes that transform lives

OPRA design and deliver award-winning leadership development and change programmes that transform lives and produce measurable results.

Each programme is built with the adult learner in mind, and uses a combination of blended learning that is supported by inspirational content and contemporary research. Not only does our approach make the learning more engaging, but provides greater assurance that knowledge will be embedded and that participants will experience sustained behavioural change.

“When individuals do the types of tasks they are motivated to do, experience a leadership style they find motivating, and work in a team and organisation aligned to their preferences, their engagement improves dramatically.”

Our Philosophy

All our learning and development options are built on the principles of positive psychology and an understanding that REAL learning only occurs when self-awareness, participation, and a tangible sense of progress are evident.

Alongside OPRA REAL® we incorporate blended learning that works using a comprehensive mix of pre-assessment, face-to-face workshops, self-directed learning assignments, on-going coaching, and performance support aids.

In addition, we offer train-the-trainer options to build in-house capability that enables you to cost-effectively maintain programme momentum.

Developing leaders for the future

In a new era of business complexity and ambiguity, the challenge facing leaders is not whether they have the attributes required for success today, but whether they have the potential to learn new ways of operating in the future.

In response to this changing landscape, OPRA has developed a uniquely personal leadership coaching programme for emerging and existing leaders. Typically delivered in a one-to-one format, this programme draws on content from across the breadth of the OPRA Develop offering to equip leaders think and work in new ways.

Depending on need, programme content might cover areas such as;

  • building self and other awareness
  • authentic leadership
  • personal resilience and well-being
  • governance and strategy execution
  • transformational leadership
  • building effective teams.
