Leadership Development Program
Blended Learning Approach
Leadership development does not happen through theoretical learning alone.
Our blended approach combines high quality online learning modules with individual fieldwork followed by group work.
This cycle of Learn -> Act -> Reflect runs on a three week cycle and is repeated for 6 modules.
Week 1 - Content
Participants individually complete online module
Participants take notes and complete the exercises in their workbooks.
Week 2 - Fieldwork
Participants individually undertake fieldwork assignment.
Week 3 - Group work
Participants meet in Action Learning Groups (ALGs) for reflection on fieldwork and for peer coaching.
Program Introduction & Structure
Weick and Sutcliffe’s book, Managing the Unexpected, is essential reading for anyone embarking on a HRO journey.
The EvolvedHRO™ modules are themed around their five principles. But don’t expect the regurgitation of Weick and Sutcliffe’s work that most HRO programs provide. EvolvedHRO™ reinvents High Reliability Organisations as a function of change leadership; providing the tools a leader needs to transform their organisation.
Each online module consists of four to six videos interspersed with exercises and other readings. Here is one of the four videos for Module 2.
EvolvedHRO™ Program Modules
EvolvedHRO™ Leadership Model

Reluctance to Simplify Interpretations
Focusses on breaking the cycle of firefighting and outlines the leadership capabilities needed to address underlying causes.
Preoccupation with Failure
Distinguishes one of the most powerful techniques in HRO leadership; systemic inquiry.
Sensitivity to Operations
Confronts the large gap that exists between what management think is happening at the front line, and what really happens at the front line.
Deference to Expertise
Explores the critical differences in how leaders use expertise dependent on the complexity of the operating environment, positioning the leadership necessary for sustainable high performance.
Commitment to Resilience
Repositions resilience as a systemic organisational attribute rather than just a personal one, while building the most powerful and far-reaching leadership capability; leadership that changes mindsets and culture.
