Why Strada7 Leadership Lab is Different

Most leadership training incorporates a long list of leadership standards and competencies, few of which drive sales revenue and service delivery. There are only a handful of people management practices that make big improvements to sales and service – we call these the 7 Disciplines of Great Managers.

Strada7® Leadership Lab helps managers learn and implement the 7 Disciplines, so they can change employee behaviour for rapid improvements in sales revenue and service delivery. This means they can increase sales and service each by at least 21% in 21 weeks, while also improving employee engagement.

There are no travel costs associated with your managers attending Strada7® Leadership Lab, as it is all delivered online.

The 7 Disciplines of Great Managers

  1. Drive for Results
  2. Focus on Critical Work Behaviours
  3. Provide Positive Feedback (Praise) to Reinforce Behaviour
  4. Are Willing to Confront Poor Performance
  5. Have a System for Noticing What People are Doing
  6. Develop Others
  7. Link Work to Its Impact on Organisational Performance


What Business Results Does Strada7 Leadership Lab Bring ?

Business outcome improvements:

Sales: At least a 21% increase in 21 weeks. We frequently see at least a 40% increase in sales in 10 months. This means you’re able to get increased sales, year-on-year, with fewer employees.
Service Delivery: At least a 21% increase in 21 weeks. This means you’re able to deliver better service, year-on-year, with fewer employees.
Absenteeism and Turnover: Reductions that can pay for Strada7® Leadership Lab within months.


Our Guarantee

We guarantee that if your managers complete all components of Strada7® Leadership Lab, and implement what we recommend, they will increase sales revenue or service delivery (depending on which metric for which they are responsible) by at least 21% in just 21 weeks. However, many of our clients have achieved greater improvements in as little as a month.

If in 21 weeks’ time your managers have completed all components of the Strada7® Leadership Lab, and implemented what we recommend, and they haven't achieved at least a 21% increase, we will work with you at no further cost until they do.

“I am far more engaged with my people. I actually feel like I’m making a difference and I enjoyed the training process. While there were sceptics in the beginning it’s now part of the culture. The culture was good before, but now it has a buzz, it’s even better.”

Judith Stevich

“We find the 7 Disciplines are pitched at the right level for our Service Managers.

“I find the techniques both simple and effective. The 7 Disciplines of Great Managers give you the tools to help change staff attitude from negative to positive. The results are pretty immediate, and importantly you learn how you can find that “right” button to press to get the improvements in service delivery you want.”
