A Mentor is your shortcut to


“…If I was only armed with this information a number of years ago when I had to deal with poor performance in my team. My life would have been a lot easier.”

Faye RescignoSenior Project Manager - Elton Consulting

…exactly what I need – self-paced, practical information that really hits the mark.
The balance between big picture theory, case studies and the practical tools and tips is just right. And the opportunity for reinforcement through the Q&A webinars is so helpful.
I know I will refer back to this material for many years to come as I continue on my journey to being a great manager.”

It’s NOT for you if…

You are seeking a leadership “qualification”

Competency-based training (common in larger institutes delivering classroom-style workshops) will provide you with a ‘Competent’ or ‘Not Yet Competent’ certification.

We do not believe you can prove leadership competency in a classroom and instead, choose to approach leadership with a Capability-based approach.

You learn a new skill, apply it in your workplace, learn another skill, apply it, etc.
We are all about building new skills, habits and mindsets as this is what creates behavioural and cultural change.
A competency certificate does not.

You cannot spare an hour per month

Managers are busy, we get it. But we want you to be our next success story.

Whilst you are free to choose if you attend the live sessions, and can access the library at any time that suits you… to get the most value from this membership, we highly recommend you attend our webinars live, for an hour each month. That’s it.

How will this membership help me?

Every successful leader has had a Mentor.  Whether it was their manager, a colleague or an external expert in their field.  Finding the ideal Mentor is not always easy, or affordable, and paying for a Mentor or Coach can set you back thousands of dollars a year which makes it out of reach for the majority of managers.  This membership provides a leadership coach & mentor at your fingertips for less than the cost of a cup of coffee every day!

I want everyone in my team or organisation to benefit. Can they all access the MasterClasses?

Ask us about our extremely cost-effective organisational rates to get unlimited access for your team.

Is this membership only for those in senior management positions?

Definitely not.  A MasterClass membership is not only extremely beneficial for anyone leading a team of people but for the aspiring manager alike.  If you’re looking to get more out of your management role and have exclusive access to the latest in industry-leading, practical leadership skills, sign up today!


How long is each lesson?

Each lesson runs for between 30minutes and 1hr (including mentoring session). We deliberately keep them short to
a) eliminate information overload and
b) make it easy for you to learn the skills in bite-sized chunks (the best way to learn)

How do I access the lessons?

When you become a Great Managers® MasterClass Member, you will be issued with a User Name and Password. Simply use these to log in to your online membership portal and access your training and all of your resources. Live sessions are held via GoToWebinar.

I’m not that computer savvy. How technical is the membership site?

Our site is very easy to use. If you can access the Internet, you will be able to easily use our site. What’s more, support is only a phone call or an email away. (though we’re betting you won’t need it).

Do you have payment plans?

Payments are monthly with no lock-in contract, so if the membership doesn’t work for you, you can pause / cancel your subscription at any time. No questions asked.

Can I access the training from anywhere?

Yes. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access the training anytime, anywhere.

Why $79 per month?

If you’re thinking “$79 per month is cheap for coaching…what’s the catch?” then here are two reasons that should put your mind at ease:

1. We’re on a mission to fill the world with great managers and $79 per month puts our expertise within the reach of everyone…from supervisors and team leaders to directors and even CEOs. (And at $79, you shouldn’t have to get approval or fill out a purchase order.) 😉

2. It weeds out the freebie-seekers. We only want to work with those serious about succeeding in their management roles.

We also believe that once you experience our MasterClass membership, you’ll want more and maybe…just maybe…one day you’ll even upgrade to our Great Managers Academy where you get access to our industry-leading training program that guarantees behavioural and cultural change in your organisation.

How long will it take to get access?


Your login and access information will be sent to the email address you provide upon purchase.  You will have unlimited access to the library of MasterClass recordings and begin to receive VIP invites to the monthly live MasterClass.
