Leadership Development

Do Better? Show me how

Rethinking how we manage, recover and learn from failure in the workplace.

Plenty of performance models describe how individuals and teams can celebrate their success and accomplishments in the workplace. However, all humans, sooner or later, make mistakes and create results they would rather not have. The most important predictor of a good workday is making progress; but what happens when we fail or make a mistake?

yugen connections offer not only a range of bespoke leadership workshops for teams, but also individual coaching options to raise awareness about how we react to our failures and to those of others and how we grow as a result of our mistakes.

A New Way© – Resilient Leadership Workshops

Leading teams before, during or after an organisational change can be challenging in today’s workplace climate and requires the teams to go the extra mile, sometimes at a cost to their wellbeing. We provide a range of leadership solutions that enable leaders to recognise the early signs of poor mental and physical health in themselves and their team members.

Moreover, we ensure that team leaders know what a good mental health conversation looks like and that they are entirely able to lead their teams by being role models of healthy behaviours.

By assessing resilience thoughts and behaviours, senior teams gain insights on how they can best promote resilience and support wellbeing in the workplace. Our  leadership workshops help leaders to understand the team’s pressure points, where to make improvements and how to build a robust workplace wellbeing culture.


  • Understand the Psychology of Resilience
  • Leading Resilient Teams
  • The Resilient Leader – Mindset and Behaviours
