Our Training Courses Uplift The Leadership Capability Framework
Approach Services provides unique leadership development to drive personal growth and organisational development. We develop change-ready organisations by raising self-awareness, trust and curiosity.
We have developed the matrix mapping our course catalogue to a 5-dimensional Leadership Capability Framework:
Change & innovation
Business & system-thinking
Our courses enable professional and organisational growth by understanding the psychological and physical impact of a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and changing) environment on people. We take this newfound awareness to uplift communication skills, collaboration and cooperation skills, conflicts - and problem-solving skills, mentoring and coaching skills. Through our program leaders experience what resilient, agile and authentic leadership looks and feels like.
We work closely with the industry and our clients to continuously develop and improve our products and services and provide the maximum value to you.
Currently, we offer 12 face-to-face workshops and 7 eLearning courses. Please see our course catalogue and price list for more information.

As an experienced technical manager with a demonstrated history of working in the global oil & energy sector, Gopi noticed the need to expand his capabilities to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing industry.
He took the initiative to enrol in the EXCELerate Leadership Program.
Over three months and six courses, he worked in a cohort of like-minded peers on the professional skills to deliver results faster.
He tells us how great the program was. The courses focus on both acquiring knowledge and how to use it at work. He experienced his most profound learning during a role-play on how to communicate effectively with your project stakeholders. Effectively communicating change is probably one of the toughest (if not the toughest!) parts of being in a leadership position.
If you want to take his place, be sure to register for the EXCELerate Leadership Program.
An iconic Perth Non-for-Profit was going through a significant transformational journey following a bold strategy to revamp an organisation that had been stable for 30 years.
The CEO and Executive of Strategy & Planning sponsored Approach Services to be the trusted partner and guide for a strategic transformational program of three key projects.
A team of four change experts established a structured organisational change management practice and rolled out an extensive executive and leadership training and coaching program. Within 12 months Scitech established active and visible change leadership, applied structured change management to two major projects, 75% of the surveyed staff were very satisfied with our work, and 93% of leaders successfully graduated from the EXCELerate program.

Wise Professional Network
The Wise Professional Network is passionate about closing the gender gap in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid professions. Not only do women make up only 28% of the workforce in STEM, but they are also critically under-represented in Australia's key management positions, the C-suite and boards.
The founder of the Non-for-Profit approached us to deliver a high-impact workshop to rising talents within their organisation. A small and intimate peer group of emerging leaders and change-makers enjoyed the Value-Driven Leadership EXCELerate workshop in our CBD offices.
Through different activities, the women could identify their core values and authentic leadership style, and their influence on others in their team. The workshop helped the women to improve their confidence whilst lowering stress and tension.

Volunteering WA and a WA working group are leading a community-wide change, triggered by legislative changes from the Federal Government. The CEO of Volunteering WA engaged Approach Services to facilitate a two-day co-creation workshop with the working group, to establish a change mindset and collaborate on the vision and roadmap for the change, identify the impact and stakeholders and arrive at no-regret actions.
Although being at a difficult stage with many unknowns, the workshop allowed the volunteer community to brush up on their skills and focus on practical change management, planning and networking.
