“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 talent and leadership development programmes 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 psychometric 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

Developing high functioning leaders requires a systematic, methodical approach underpinned by proven science. OPRA has reviewed the psychological literature to identify the core components of leadership development and combined these components into a unique programme to help leaders realise their potential.

Starting with the development of self, the programme focus on optimising performance through a deep understanding of participant strengths and weaknesses and developing the strength of character to engage with the world with purpose and integrity. Key skills such as emotional intelligence, cognitive agility and healthy thinking supplement this self-knowledge to ensure participants can realise their true potential. Having developed oneself, a person is then able to be a credible leader of others.

Similar to the development of self, being able to develop others requires mastery of key skills such as effective communication, managing, motivating, and understanding others. Time is crucial, and the good leadership training needs to develop the optimal leader in the shortest time by focussing on the critical skills that make a difference. Through a blending learning approach, OPRA can develop leaders to help them realise their potential, in the quickest possible time.
