Leadership & People Training
A growing business cannot succeed without a team of inspired and motivated individuals working towards the same goal. Here's what you need to go on that journey, together.
What is leadership development training?
What's the heartbeat of every organisations? The people who work in it.
Creating a high-performance, values-led organisation requires skills in management, leadership, and vision-setting, and that’s just scratching the surface of what's needed from the business owner and leader. Being able to effectively navigate this delicate balance between focusing on these dynamics and mechanics of a business can be challenging, which is where leadership training comes in.
Here are 3 of the core considerations any business owner needs to consider when looking for leadership training and development:
Is your team intrinsically motivated to perform? Are you in the best place possible to lead them? Do they understand the vision of the business, and the role they must play in getting there? A good leader knows the answer to all these questions.
An organisational structure, with clearly defined and delineated roles and responsibilities, with personal and professional development plans, as well as KPIs to perform to, are the foundations of good management in any business.
Culture is not seen. It is felt. In particular, your Vision, Mission and Values are the most powerful forces in any business. How do you set them, and how do you enrol your team in them so you're all working towards the same north star and goals?
Why do leadership training?
Without people and without a well-rounded and developed leader who can lead those people, your business is going nowhere. That’s why at The Entourage, we don’t only focus on all of the areas that every multi-million dollar business has gotten right — Marketing, Sales, Finance, Product, and Operations — but also People & Leadership training and development, because people are what bring every other area of your business together.
If you don’t get the people element right by first engaging in leadership training and development with a business coach, mentor, or even course, it may lead to more difficulty and challenge down the track in managing and leading a team who probably won’t be aligned to your Vision, Mission and Values.
With the right people in the right positions, your team and business will start flourishing and make it easier for you, the business owner, to focus less on the day-to-day and more on the overall long-term vision and strategy. Whether you’re a new leader or a seasoned one, leadership training can still benefit how you and your business grows long-term.
Who should take leadership training?
Seed stage business owners
While the entrepreneurs who are in the seed stage of business ($0-$99,999) generally don’t have a team or group of people they’re managing and leading yet, this is the biggest opportunity to get it right before you need it. You’ll realise soon that as your idea starts to gain traction, you’ll feel overwhelmed at the enormity of the tasks you have ahead and that you’ll need to start thinking about hiring soon. And having that leadership training as a new leader will allow you to quickly develop through the next stages of business because you have the right people in place to help your business’s growth go in the right direction.
Startup stage business owners
For the entrepreneurs who are in the startup stage of business ($100,000-$999,999), one of the most common problems we hear at The Entourage is that they’re still doing everything and anything, despite having a team around them. They crave leverage to be able to do the more important things that the business owner should be doing, instead of managing every little thing in the business. It may feel like you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place without the right leadership training that will help you develop the systems and processes to manage your team the right way.
Scale stage business owners
At this scale stage of business ($1,000,000+), business owners often start to struggle with how to grow the business further, despite having more money to have hired more skilled and experienced team members. Everything seems to be bursting at the seams but not in the right places. And you thought that by this stage, you’d have gained back more freedom and time to do the things that you wanted outside of the business. That’s where leadership training can help you start to elevate yourself out of the business long-term by giving more responsibility to the right people in your team.

Businesses we have helped with leadership
Sunil grew his business by 16X in 3 years to become the #1 fastest growing real estate company in Australia
Sunil Kumar, the Founder of Reliance Real Estate, started the business in a period of decline in the real estate market, meaning the first few years of business were not easy. Even when it was going well, he recognised that he didn’t have enough support to take the business to the next level, and struggled to get out of technician mode, working in the business, and not on the business.
After joining The Entourage’s Elevate program, with the help of our team of advisors, he was able to get a 12-month plan for the business that not only helped him drive real growth for Reliance, but also empower him to step out of hte day-to-day management and start “leading from the front” and even make the AFR Fast 100 three years in a row.
