SUCCESS Code Leadership Masterclass

Unlocking the Leadership SUCCESS Code™ to achieve and succeed as a leader, as a leadership team and ideally in both! 

90 days. Twelve group sessions on the critical leadership themes. Individual coaching to address issues, concerns and action.

One outcome.

Impactful, effective and sustained leadership capability and strategies to help you ‘unlock success’ in leadership and crucially, for the teams you lead.

So what is a Masterclass Programme

The SUCCESS Code™ Leadership Masterclass Programme is designed to help established and newly emerging leaders or equivalent roles, fully harness and apply the SUCCESS Code™ methodology to drive sustained success and achievement through impactful and engaging leadership.

Each Masterclass Programme is built upon a number of weekly sessions to explore and apply the critical leadership SUCCESS Code™ components.  In addition to the wider group learning, individual discussions between Steve and each participant before, during and post the group sessions, is a crucial factor in the overall engagement and success of the programme.

Each of the component sessions is an intense and reflective experience for participants in the group. Steve McNicholas, Master-coach and creator of the SUCCESS Code™, will challenge and inspire them to ‘unlock the success code’ in themselves as leaders and then with and through their teams for the wider benefit of the business.

An overview of the key themes we explore is below.

The outcome upon conclusion of the Leadership Masterclass Programme, is both a personal and team based leadership action plan. This creates both individual and collective responsibility to drive through on the mindset, strategies and ‘habits’ needed to lead, succeed and achieve with impact.


Theme 1

After an overview of the Leadership SUCCESS Code™, we start by taking a critical look at management versus leadership.

Understanding the critical differences but appreciating that excellence in both disciplines is essential for sustained success.


Theme 2

Here we explore and capture your own leadership style and the significance of your style, positively and less so.

Awareness of your style and the deployment of this in various situations and scenarios is the ‘sweet-spot’ we are aiming for here.!


Theme 3

This session focuses upon the critical components of leading others and in particular, the impact of your technical skills alongside emotional leadership.

The outcome here is a far greater awareness of your technical ‘gaps’ as well as a realisation of your default in times of pressure!!


Theme 4

An ability to lead yourself and others through Change is now a prerequisite for leadership success and progress.  We focus on this here.

The session concentrates on successfully leading others through strategic change as well as a ‘checklist’ on your own mindset and outlook.


Theme 5

Leading for Results is clearly a key demand of all leaders, whatever the desired result is defined to be, sales, strategic, change etc.

We look at it through 3 different lenses.  The TEAM, the INDIVIDUAL and the LEADER themselves.  Each requiring a laser focused strategy.


Theme 6

Leading and harnessing the potential and capability of your people is a key competitive advantage to any leader.

Here we explore several strategies to unlock that from within your team and how to focus that on results and progress – individually and as a team.


Session 7

Addressing and driving a recovery’ in performance is a demand all leaders face at times.  Handling this is a crucial skill and competency.

Understanding the essential strategies to re-energise, refocus and drive the ‘systemised’ actions required to push through is powerful.


Theme 8

One of the most essential features of impactful leadership is leveraging Purpose.  Defining and aligning the team behind our ‘why’.

Identified by some of the most successful leaders on the planet as a key piece in any leadership success, we focus here in detail.


Theme 9

Upon completion of previous themes, plus the review sessions and individual discussions, here we deal with the overall strategy.

Applying the Leadership SUCCESS Code consistently and adhering to the committed actions is when the ‘magic’ happens.

Our sales management team recently completed a Masterclass with Steve and the activity, focus and crucially the results, have all increased significantly.

Impactful Leadership Masterclass

The masterclass was eye-opening. Understanding what the most successful do and why, made complete sense. I now have the roadmap to make a BIG impact today!

So should you consider the Masterclass?

Please DO CONSIDER a Masterclass if

You have a real business or performance issue within your teams or business and you truly want to help your people understand, apply and embed the critical components that drive real improvement and sustained success!

Your leadership team need a fresh and empowering change in outlook, focus and insight to drive and deliver exceptional results and performance from their teams and then just as importantly, knowing how to sustain it!

Your first line/area/regional management groups are not yet making the required step that you need from them, from functional managers into impactful leaders, capable of inspiring, motivating and sustaining results, change and performance from the teams they manage (rather than lead!)

You have a cohort of talented and capable colleagues who you wish to retain, develop and invest in, to drive your business or organisation onto greater success in the months and years ahead!

The SUCCESS Code™ methodology will provide each Masterclass group with the fundamental strategies to ‘unlock the success code’ for themselves, the team and the organisation.

Please DO NOT CONSIDER a Masterclass if

You actually believe that transformative and sustainable success in any individual, team or organisation, is achievable in a “day or two” because that’s what other experts or providers have suggested? If that’s the case, then a Masterclass is not for you!

Your teams and their leaders do not believe that further improvement and success is possible. That finding a ‘sustainable winning improvement’ for the client, themselves and the business is not a feasible outcome. If they truly believe that and you also agree, then this is not for them!

You have decided that your supervisory or line management teams do not warrant the support, investment and development needed to become inspiring and impactful leaders. If you wish to dismiss the significance of this critical population and focus upon executive development only within your business, then maybe this is not for you!

Retaining and developing talent already within your organisation, and maximsing that potential for the benefit of the colleague and the business today, tomorrow and in the future and you are prepared to let that ‘talent’ risk leaving, then maybe this Masterclass is not for you!

Meet your coach

Steve McNicholas, two times best-selling author, international keynote speaker and business coach, is a leading authority on what it takes to achieve ‘success’ and importantly, how to sustain it. From a decade of research, the critical components and sequencing behind success and achievement in business, in life, in both, were defined.

His unique seven step strategy, referred to as the SUCCESS Code™, provides audiences, personal clients and programme delegates with the insight, understanding and ‘secrets’ of what the most successful people, leaders and teams on the planet are doing daily that the majority of us are not.

Just as importantly, he then shares the ‘how to’, enabling the achievement of whatever objectives, goals or targets you have, professionally or personally and ideally, in both!
