Leading self

Leading self

If you can't lead yourself, then you won't be able to effectively lead others. Leadership starts with getting clear about your intent and impact, your leadership philosophy and values, and how that determines your approach to risk and strategy.

Leading Others

Leading others

Leadership fundamentally involves developing meaningful relationships with different people in order to make a difference. This requires emotional intelligence and the skills to coach other people to unlock their own potential and capability.

Leading Teams

Leading teams

One of the most under-estimated leadership challenges is that of leadings teams and groups. Individual differences, team dynamics, roles and workflows, strategy and purpose all intersect and interact in the team space.

Leading Systems

Leading systems

Business is a system. Leadership is about understanding the system, challenging the system and crafting more sophisticated and sustainable systems that create success across multiple domains, not just profit.

CEO - Advanced Mobility Analytics

Chris runs an incredibly useful and powerful leadership development program, focused on personal leadership improvement and/or transformation. I highly recommend his personal style of engagement, his methods of facilitation and teaching, and his approach to coaching. The program supported me to challenge my own philosophy and approach to leadership.

Chris has a magic way of working through life-time obstacles to create a new dimension in which one can live, work and perform. It is both empowering and liberating. Thanks Chris!

Performance Potential through Chris Ridler provided executive leadership development programs to Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE following a restructure of executive portfolios at the institute. Chris's style is unassuming yet powerful in facilitating the group to the desired outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Performance Potential to any organisation focussed on building executive leadership team cohesion and effectiveness.
