An organisation succeeds when it is good at making a valuable contribution to the market. Another way of expressing this idea is that an organisation succeeds when it is good at offering a valuable service to people. The question all organisations must face then is how to ensure that their service/contribution is valuable to people/the market. 

Effective leadership requires a fundamental shift in the traditional approach to management and has a critical effect on team excellence. The original research conducted by Etsko Schuitema, in the 1980s, demonstrated that effective leadership is essentially tied up with the issue of employee trust in management.

Organisations can be described as a team sport in which there is a task that needs to get done and this task is passed around between members of a team or between teams within an organisation. Fundamentally, each interaction of passing the task between team members can have one of two characters: it can either be fundamentally competitive, or it can be fundamentally cooperative/collaborative. 

People are significant on the basis of their contribution; the value that they add to others during their lifetime. They are significant for what they put in, not for what they get out. Being here to give or to serve is, therefore, the core criterion which accounts for excellence in any individual. When people have cracked the code of appropriate contribution, they realise the best in themselves and come to be able to live their greater lives.


Why would I need leadership training?

Leadership training is crucial for individuals looking to enhance their leadership skills, unlock their potential, and drive positive change within their organisations. It equips you with the knowledge, tools, and strategies to effectively lead teams, navigate challenges, inspire others, and create a culture of excellence. Leadership training helps you develop self-awareness, communication skills, coaching abilities, and the capacity to drive meaningful results.

What should I expect from leadership training?

Leadership training at Schuitema Group offers a transformative learning experience. You can expect a combination of theoretical insights, practical tools, interactive exercises, and real-world case studies. Our training focuses on developing self-awareness, enhancing communication, fostering effective relationships, and equipping you with the skills to lead with authenticity, empathy, and accountability. Expect a supportive, engaging learning environment that encourages personal growth and professional development.

What is the difference between training and consulting at Schuitema?

At Schuitema Group, training and consulting work in tandem to drive holistic organisational change. Training focuses on developing individuals’ skills and capabilities through structured learning experiences. At the same time, consulting involves working closely with organisations to assess their unique challenges, design tailored solutions, and provide guidance on implementation. Training provides the foundational knowledge and tools, while consulting ensures a customised approach to address specific organisational needs and achieve sustainable results.

How long does training last?

The duration of our training programmes varies depending on the specific programme chosen. We offer a range of options, from shorter sessions to multi-day programmes. For example, our Introduction to Care & Growth programme is a two-day immersive training, while our Personal Excellence Training at Oaklands spans five days. Each programme will specify the duration, enabling you to select the option that best fits your availability and learning objectives.
