Developing Direct Reports: Taking the guesswork out of leading leaders

Human behaviour is complex. Developing leadership in others takes more than knowing the theory and authorising the training budget. Bringing out the best in your people can be challenging and time consuming.

Written for leaders who lead leaders, this book addresses the 12 most common, globally recognised leadership derailers.

Packed with examples, insights and recommendations, and supported by a practical framework, this book shows you how to:

  • understand what’s really driving the dysfunctional behaviours you observe
  • become a catalyst for behaviour change that sticks
  • take the guesswork out of developing your direct reports.

It’s time to empower your leaders to get out of their own way; realise their potential; and deliver on individual, team and organisational goals.

With her co-authors—fellow leadership experts Anneli Blundell and Belinda Cohen—Corrinne is on a mission to take the guesswork out of developing direct reports and this book shows you how.


‘Developing Direct Reports’ is also the topic of one of Corrinne’s keynotes.

Corrinne shares her tools and insights that have been instrumental in my leadership development. Through her extensive knowledge of teams and passion as a leadership coach, Corrinne tackles the challenges faced by many managers in unlocking their leadership potential, in turn, unleashing the capacity of their teams.

This eBook is an essential tool in the arsenal of any leader seeking to exploit their opportunity to be extraordinary!

Cracking the Code for Workshop Performance: Facilitating the Change that Matters

This is a specialist reference guide for a specific audience – iWAM consultants.

Corrinne, and her co-authors Anneli Blundell and Belinda Cohen, are recognised globally for the client experiences they have created based on motivational profiling the iWAM (Inventory of Work Attitudes and Motivations) system.

Written in response to interest and requests from international colleagues, Cracking the Code for Workshop Performance sets out methodology for quickly building effective workshops that delight clients. It provides a trusted framework with step-by-step instructions for over 60 training activities. To support consultants in delivering the activities, there are print-ready participant handouts (eg puzzles, images, case studies, scripts, instruction sheets). Each activity also includes a comprehensive set of debrief questions guaranteed to provoke discussion, stimulate layered learning, and maximise engagement.

This guide has also been purchased and used successfully by consultants who use other profiling instruments.
