The Different Tools


LeadConnect is bolstered by a range of complementary and voluntary tools to assist leaders to continuously improve the engagement, effectiveness and productivity of their virtual teams.

Developed in good faith, they are being made available free of charge to organisations of any size.

“The survey has added much value to us at this time. It enabled us to take the temperature of our people so that we can assist where it is needed. The survey asked exactly the right questions and were simple and fast to complete. The report was really useful and Alinda’s feedback to the Execs and then the Senior Management team was insightful. The whole experience was really a positive one. Thank you!” – Nomzamo Ngqulana-Kasana, Head of Human Resources, Glacier




To aid the application of the content, leaders will receive conversation and cue cards. Based on the key themes covered in each of the topics, these cards will guide leaders through meaningful discussions with their teams.

Now, more than ever, leaders need resilience if they are to effectively lead their teams in the new ways of work that are emerging. While leaders may be facing similar challenges and changes, their responses, and therefore their coping requirements are very different. Because coaching has an individual approach, it is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and allows them to deal with the specific issues they are facing.


Being able to reach anyone, anywhere and at any given time, it is not surprising that individual coaching is one of the fastest-growing areas of leadership development. Not only is it accessible and highly personalised, but it also gives leaders the opportunity to:


  • Talk openly and soundboard ideas with someone they trust
  • Be constructively challenged to come up with sustainable solutions
  • Set clear leadership objectives and be held accountable


Our team of highly-qualified and experienced Coaches are offering individual coaching sessions to support leaders with any need that may arise during this time.
