Every GPS Colloquium program is driven by the specific people and cultural challenges of your team.

We use a unique facilitative approach to align groups around shared understanding and accountability of those challenges.

This process facilitates individual learning and team success.

setting your agenda

GPS Colloquium takes a unique approach to building  shared values-based team accountability.​

We work ‘in the round’ facilitating the discussions required to inspire team unity and trust.

This enables the team to fully utilise its collective potential to address agenda items.

discussions in the round

GPS Colloquium aligns teams around a shared understanding of the organisation’s people and cultural challenges and a common vocabulary for creating change.

The process keeps the group individually and collectively focused on its responsibilities and accountabilities to the work, each other and the wider organisation.​

Theme 1

Leadership and authenticity

Participants undertake a capability assessment to evaluate their ability in key areas. Results from this assessment help inform each participant’s focus areas and support them to achieve their developmental objectives. Following completion of the program a second assessment is undertaken reinforcing and highlighting important growth.


Driving performance

Participants learn how to provide feedback and motivate their team to exceed performance expectations. Participants identify key principles of performance management in order to ensure consistency with organisational objectives. This module also explores techniques involved in coaching others and building individual capability.

Theme 3

Team dynamics

Participants explore the practical implications of managing diverse and challenging groups and examine the qualities shared by high performing teams. Participants then move on to develop effective strategies to foster cultures that support optimal teamwork.​


Leading innovation and change

This module focuses on the leadership skills involved in driving innovation and change. Participants critically discuss the application of relevant theory and explore the way in which innovation and change are inextricably intertwined. Participants then examine leadership challenges during times of crisis, gaining an understanding of the way in which leaders can build an agile and resilient organisation.

Theme 2

Communication, presence and influence

This module commences with an exploration of one’s own preferred style of communication and the impact of one’s style on others. Participants develop skills for effective communication and influencing at interpersonal, team, and organisational levels.


Purpose, priorities and professional development

The final module focuses on developing skills to hone a competitive edge. Participants will learn to develop effective work goals and behaviours to competently manage work priorities. They also explore the critical elements of establishing personal work objectives, prioritising workload for optimum achievement and building on professional competence.


Strategic thinking and organisational learning

Participants are challenged to ‘rethink’ their organisation’s purpose and strategy by exploring the assumptions that underpin them and their strategic response to them. They develop a heightened awareness of the systemic influences that impact their organisation and develop the capacity to challenge their own and others’ mental models.
