Auckland Council: 2011 to present day

Auckland Council is Australasia’s largest Council with a $3 billion annual budget and approximately 11,000 staff.

In 2011 we were asked to deliver two workshops for Auckland Council as part of its core curriculum.  These two workshops – “Building Personal Resilience” and “Leading Remote Teams” were so successful that we were requested to deliver them into different divisions/departments of the organisation.  In 2012, we were invited to provide a response to a RFP, and were successful in winning the bid to deliver three key workshops: “Team Leadership Training”, “Collaborative Relationships”, and “Training Tips for SMEs”.

The “Team Leadership Training” programme became the People Leaders Programme which is a longitudinal 4-day leadership programme that has been delivered to 1500 people leaders since 2012.  The purpose of the programme is to transform the culture of leadership at the Council, creating mindset shifts, establishing new cross-organisation relationships and building greater collaboration.  The programme links with the Council’s existing executive leadership programme and drives the content for other core curriculum programmes at the Council.

Capability Group continues to deliver key learning programmes as part of Council’s core curriculum.
