Our courses and programs are built around a set of core beliefs:

  • Every organisation and every community is navigating through many unknowns and uncertainties
  • Every community and every organisation has the answers and being ‘in community‘ with each other is part of finding the answers
  • Every leader has the means to see what needs to be done and can step forward to do it
  • CEOs and senior leaders create positive and innovative environments through setting clear intention, attending to and resourcing capacity and capability, as well as holding accountability.

The powerful questions we return to for guidance are:

  • How do we rise to our individual and collective challenges and opportunities?
  • What simple and powerful practices and approaches will sustain us and move us forward?
  • How do we release the capacity for innovation and resilience within and across our organisations and communities?
  • How can we work together to co-create sustainable organisations and systems of the future?


Short courses are offered as cross-sectoral paths to deepening leadership skills. They are also customised to meet an organisational need identified through Archersfield’s consultancy work.

The Executive Challenge Academy (ECA) is achieving the challenging mission of growing and developing wise, visionary, creative and engaged leadership. The Leadership Company (TLC) is pleased to support this innovative initiative to connect and grow a global community of leaders that embraces diverse organisations across the corporate, non-government and public sectors.

The ECA has transformed my organisation from a busy, hard working group of people diligently in the hamster wheel of activity and task to an organisation that is more thoughtful and deliberate about our leadership, and what it will take to achieve successes and social change. I cannot recommend this work highly enough.

It was such a privilege to be part of the Emerging Leaders Program – initially as a participant, and then continuing as a group Mentor. The program exposes you to world-class leaders as they present on topics relevant to us all, regardless of what role you play or what organisation/sector you come from. The program itself is structured in such a way that you develop meaningful and reciprocal relationships with others that will assist you in both your personal development and within your professional career.

The Emerging Leaders program is an invitation to become uncomfortable, to embrace ambiguity, and to confront complexity. Through exposure to a range of theories and disciplines, participants find opportunity for deep reflection from which they emerge as personally grounded, professionally networked, servant leaders, capable of holding a space for people to grow and for change to occur.

Being part of the Executive Challenge Academy Emerging Leaders program as a participant and as a mentor for the past two years has been an invaluable opportunity for me in terms of individual growth and for my organisation in terms of my leadership capability. I feel part of a leadership community – a community that is connected and where valuable lifelong relationships have been formed. For me the program is a safe environment for learning and I particularly benefited from taking the time out for self and group reflection.

ECA programs bring diverse people together to learn from the best and to develop communities of practice that deliver real outcomes, all based on strong theory.
