The DNA of Disruption is a language few people speak.

The world has changed. Rule books ripped up. Systems dismantled.

System shocks and structural changes are transforming the way we live, work and relate. Rich with risk and opportunity, a new approach to leadership is required to navigate the new world.

Are you ready? Are your teams ready? Is your business ready?

Navigating new, complex environments requires an adaptive mindset, different ways of thinking and the necessary skills, capabilities and confidence to succeed in an ever-changing environment.

Change is happening now at an unprecedented pace and scale. From global disruption to local impacts, organisations are facing history’s most significant challenges. How they adapt will determine their future success.

Climate change, COVID-19, shifts in geopolitical power structures, technological disruption and more are buffeting your business, challenging your people and putting pressure on your operating models.

Can you come out the other side? Are you equipped to succeed? Are you one of the 5%?

In fact only 5%* of leaders have the ability to catalyse and lead transformational change.

Are you the new form of leader your business needs, equipped with the skills to succeed? Do you have the knowledge, expertise and confidence to lead through accelerating change, disruption and volatility?

Beyond EXcellence helps to foster the most critical attributes associated with leaders. We work with you to unpack complex challenges, design and redefine opportunity, understand impacts and implement action. We give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to be one of the 5% and prepare you to lead in the changed world.

As traditional approaches to leadership development leave many ill-equipped
in changing times, make sure that you, your people and your organisation are not disrupted for good.

Team Transformation

We have created a program uniquely designed to shape a new generation of leaders through immersion in a dynamic learning experience and its practical application.

Structured over 6-10 months, the program will foster self-awareness, critical thinking skills and the capabilities required to develop and influence change within your sector. Participation will build shared understanding as precursors to greater trust, cohesion and alignment on team direction.

The content will be delivered through presentations, large and small group discussions and individual reflection. The curriculum is underpinned by leadership theories, models and frameworks, guest speakers, case studies and reading.

About Beyond Excellence.

Julie Birtles founded Beyond Excellence Pty Ltd to pioneer innovative approaches to leadership development and performance. She leads a team whose experience, depth and breadth enable the creation of unique solutions to clients’ needs, specifically designed for their circumstances and goals.

At the core of this work is a fascination with the:

  • – Underlying, and often unrecognised, internal and external systemic influences that shape individual and collective performance
  • – Critical nature of leadership in creating, shaping and optimising human, cultural, commercial and social value
  • – The structural adjustments shaping the wellbeing and sustainability of communities, companies and industries.

The collective impact of these influences is rarely considered in the design of change initiatives. Our work is underpinned by theories in adult learning, psychology, organisational and social change, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as current thinking in cognition, how to create conditions for learning agility, leadership maturity and various individual and organisational diagnostic tools and models.
