How we work

Our Approach

At UGM we don’t limit ourselves to the perspectives of a single theory, neither are we constrained by ideas from only a few leadership and management scholars. We strongly encourage our clients to adopt a similar approach because both research and our own experience show that it maximises the returns on investment in leadership and management development.

We use an evidence-based approach to extract the very best leadership and management thinking and research findings from the field and complement this with our own wide-ranging practical experience (in many diverse industry sectors and organisation types) and independent, original thinking.

This leads to us developing a fit-for-purpose approach where our client's context, business drivers and bottom line returns are vital.

Leadership Services


Leadership Advisory

Wanting to develop a high-quality leadership development program but not too sure of the best approach? Maybe you're reviewing your current leadership development initiatives? Or, maybe you're wanting to develop a 'Women in Leadership' program? UGM provides expert advice on developing or implementing high quality, high performing programs.

Leader-Manager Development

Maybe you're wanting to boost your internal leadership capability by upskilling high potentials? Do the C-Suite need a program to help them work better together? Or, you may just be looking for a specific leadership development module to complement your existing program? UGM helps clients design and deliver effective leadership development programs.

Executive Coaching

Do you have a leader that is having difficulties which are impacting on the performance or health of the business? Is there a 'failure is not an option role' where the incumbent isn't up to scratch? UGM team members are skilled executive coaches with strong track records of support for senior leaders or staff in specialist positions. Clients receive assistance customised to their context.

Diagnostics and analysis

Would you like access to a range of specialist leadership-related diagnostic tools? These include a number which are provided complimentary with particular interventions (e.g. Organisational Culture Assessment and UGM Team Behaviours Profile). Additionally, we help clients analyse their particular context and recommend interventions based on the presenting data.

Session Facilitation

Are your leaders all themselves wanting to participate in an important event or session, rather than chairing it? Or, do you have a tricky situation where leaders cannot agree or successfully resolve ongoing challenges? Clients value our engaged facilitation services where, as independant and skilled partners, we support them in reaching desired business outcomes.

Keynotes and Presentations

Are you looking for an expert to speak on aspects of business leadership at your next conference? UGM people regularly deliver keynotes and conference presentations across Australia and also internationally. Topics include leading and managing cultural risk, building inclusive cultures, adressing gender balance and understanding influence in leadership.
