Manager Acceleration Program

Welcome to the Manager Acceleration Program.

For businesses to succeed in a rapidly changing business world, future-ready leaders are needed.

Businesses need Change Agents. People who are engines of positive change.

Participants will gain great insights to business leadership and change management by the Engine Room facilitators and coaches who specialise in each business topic, and through project- based learning and reflection.

The Business Improvement Project is a key element of the program. This enables participants to work on a project to gain the valuable skills on how to be an effective Change Agent.

To succeed, change agents must create a strong sense of identity, purpose and joint-ownership, as well as a high-performing mindset. To manage resistance – a natural part of the change process – change agents must start by understanding and acknowledging the resistance. They need a lot of empathy, with good listening skills.

Manager Accelerators will have access to the Online Demand Learning 24/7. This includes the resources for the 9 business topic areas + articles, podcasts, videos, templates, surveys and much more...

We encourage all Manager Accelerators to share their learnings with others in the team - to teach is to learn.

Change Agents

Why agents of change are important?

A successful agent of change can help smooth resistance to change and address the issues before they derail an initiative and, thus, can help ensure the successful implementation and adoption of a new project.

Managers and high potential employees who are willing to work to make the business or themselves better not only demonstrate leadership potential, but begin to see change as less daunting and more a part of their everyday routine.

Business Improvement Project



The Institute of Coaching cites that over 70% of individuals who receive coaching benefited from improved work performance,

relationships and more effective

communication skills. They also reported that a huge 86% of companies feel that they recouped the investment they made into coaching plus more on top. 

Make reflective thinking a habit 

It’s important to allocate at least 10-15 minutes for reflection a few times a week in an environment that supports you and away from your desk and computer, and when you’re in a positive state of mind.

Switch off all background noise and devices in order to create the best conditions to clarify your intentions and to help you verbalise your thoughts and feelings.

It’s also helpful to capture reflections as our insights and ideas can be fleeting.
