QBS is not for your organisation if you seek solely online learning or lack interest in a tangible ROI. If attending face-to-face collaborative workshops is unaffordable, or your team cannot commit 4-5 hours per week to apply their learnings, it may not be the right fit. We believe in expert, independent coaches guiding your people, and our program covers all aspects of a leader’s role. If you’re not interested in a full qualification, externally developed programs, practical business language, or being challenged for real change, QBS may not align with your goals. We prioritise substance over jargon and buzzwords, aiming for transformative outcomes, not mere awareness.
