The 'hero' leader era has ended. Research tells us that people need 'people' as leaders; fully rounded, authentic, resilient, agile, emotionally connected people who lead with purpose and values. The traditional focus on growing skills and knowledge (horizontal development) is no longer adequate. Leaders must develop a highly sophisticated internal operating system or mindset (vertical development) to be able to deal with the pace of change and challenges. The Leadership Circle™ is a comprehensive system based on the Universal Model of Leadership. It is supported by research which proves a correlation between leadership effectiveness and business performance. It includes a full 360 leadership assessment. Individual and collective profiles are implemented depending on the organizational needs measuring two primary leadership domains - Creative Competencies and Reactive Tendencies.

“Effective, collective leadership is the single most important competitive and strategic advantage that cannot be copied.” Mark Fields, President of Ford Motors



The Leadership System™ is a system of interlocking and reinforcing components that, taken together, accomplish more than any single- component solution could.

This is its power.

“I have known and work closely with Primeast now for over 13 years whilst undertaking a number of roles within Cape and latterly Altrad.

What I like about Primeast is that they “get it”. They listen to what we are trying to achieve as an organization and then work with us in a partnership approach to designing and delivering a solution that works for us. The length of our relationship has led to there being a high degree of trust and understanding of the organization that is simply invaluable. Working with Primeast has helped us reshape the organization, develop our leadership and leadership styles, whilst ultimately enhancing the overall performance of our business.”

Steve Connolly, Altrad
