Why join?

The People Leader Circles are run by Executive Coaches who build safe spaces to think, experiment, and explore. You’ll only discuss topics that are useful to you, in a collaborative way, with no compulsion to disclose anything you prefer to keep private. Collaborate as a sector to attract, develop, and retain leadership talent without needing a giant budget. Build great cultures and behaviours that attract and retain great talent.

Will I be giving away trade secrets to competitors?

We believe that the only way to attract and retain great talent in STEM is to collaborate as a sector.  Building ‘sticky’ cultures and behaviours will bring in, and hold onto great talent. You’ll only talk about the topics that are useful to you, in a collaborative way. There will be no compulsion to discuss anything you don’t want to.
