Complexity. Volatility. Pressure

With all the pressure you are under, there are simply too many theories and models that only help cloud your leadership situation.

3,000+ Touchpoints

A leader has more than 3,000 mind-numbing “Touchpoints” to deal with at any time. This is overload.

Reduce this to 5 focal points

The leadership psychodynamic blueprint reduces this complexity to 5 manageable focus points that you need to work with.

Equip yourself with the fundamentals that unleash your leadership potential

Steve Vanstraaten’s Leadership Psychodynamics program equips you with the fundamentals to manage the complexity and volatility of the human dynamic you lead, and helps reduce the complexity of leading others.

Whether you are just stepping into that leader role, or whether you have been there for a while, it is a daunting space filled with human dynamics pressures that few have been equipped to deal with.

With all the leadership theories and models that abound, combined with he pressures a leader faces, it becomes clear why so many struggle to make sense of this leadership craft, and why so many fail at it and burn out from the strain.

The Leadership Psychodynamics Model reduces the complexity by bringing your focus to the fundamentals that underpin the human dynamic, and equips you with five levers that help you manage the broader complexity.

Everything you need to effectively lead others in one model

One of the things we have experienced is that once most people have completed a training course and returned to the frenetic busyness and pressure of the business day, under pressure they default to their old habits and fail to actively use their new skills.
