The professional development hub for high performing and high potential Leaders.
Athena Leadership Academy specialises in partnering with firms and organisations who understand that supporting their leaders with both the skills and mindset for success is not just important; it is essential.
Successful organisations depend on their leaders to make confident, autonomous and aligned decisions. It is a leader’s responsibility to facilitate the successful implementation of organisational strategies, whilst inspiring their team to perform on that journey. In order to do this effectively, leaders need to be emotionally intelligent, self-aware, agile and resilient.
At Athena Leadership Academy, one of the greatest challenges we see is inadequate attention and guidance being provided at that crucial step from manager to leader. This is not just a shift in job title, report lines and possibly salary. It requires a mindset shift; a new paradigm. Leadership is an action and influence, not just a title.

What do you want to be known for? Ensuring every impression you leave is congruent, authentic and aligned with your future aspirations; both in person and online.
THE LEADERSHIP STEP
What sets great leaders apart? Empowering leaders are influential, productive and high performing. This requires strong leadership mindset and communication, as well as the ability to navigate the crucial step from Manager to Leader.
“It’s who you know, not what you know”. Building the right relationships to fast-track your achievements and your progress doesn’t happen by accident. Understand their aspirations, identify the key players on that journey and have a clear strategy for forming those valuable relationships.
RESILIENCE AND MENTAL TOUGHNESS
Changes and challenges are part of daily life. Resilience and mental toughness looks at how we manage through stressful times and provides tools to thrive, not just survive.
HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS
Teams are dynamic, fluid and need constant attention and building to avoid behavioural traps and dysfunctions. It is essential to understand individual behavioural styles and develop effective communication, expectation setting, delegation and accountability to ensure teams thrive.
The power of a collaborative culture means people want to work effectively together so that individual ideas become collective intelligence. This is a safe environment of trust, discovery and communal problem solving; a place where even cross-business unit relationships and ideas flourish.
