The Complete LeaderTM

The skills that make a great scientist or subject-matter expert are not the same skills that make a great leader. 

Science is about processes, systems, analytics, data, logic, knowledge, and credibility.

Leadership is about the ability to influence people. 

Whilst scientific skills are extremely valuable for management, they can be disruptive when applied to leading people. 

Within 18 months of appointment, 40-60% of leaders fail. At the executive level, that number increases to 50-70%. A leadership miss at any level can have devastating and costly consequences for individuals, their reputations and careers, and their organizations. 


Scientists and experts fail in leadership simply because the skills that made them successful scientists don't make them successful leaders. It's a classic case of 'what got you here won't get you there'. In the absence of targeted development of specific skills, scientists and SMEs use more of what has worked for them in the past, usually with unexpected and devastating consequences. 


Based on more than two decades working with and leading scientists and SMEs, and over 700 hours coaching and teaching them, The Complete LeaderTM is a 24-week intensive group program designed specifically to accelerate leadership confidence and competence for scientists and subject-matter experts. 


The Complete LeaderTM rapidly accelerates leadership effectiveness by heightening and fine-tuning the skills and behaviours essential for leadership success.

What People are Saying

"Tina is clear, concise, and to the point, but at the same time can reinforce a message without appearing to repeat herself. Her approach is very engaging, and she uses her vast experience to illustrate her points so well, you forget you are learning. She's an extremely good facilitator and speaker."

"Tina's energy and enthusiasm is infectious. This program has helped me to be less reactive and more responsive in various types of situations. I feel much better equipped to know how to deal with emotions; mine, and other people's."




"Tina has good energy, is no-nonsense, and confident. She's firm yet sensitive, which opened up the space for us to talk about unspoken frustrations. I learned a lot."

"I found Tina to really embody what she was teaching, and appreciated that she found something useful in each person’s comments and she used that to advance the discussion."

"Tina was very transparent with the group. She pulled detailed responses from participants while ensuring the individual being questioned never felt singled out. She gave time for the group to share concerns, discuss and elaborate. She engaged the entire group which led to better discussions and understanding of how we, as a group of leaders, can best lead our teams."
