Everyone Speaks.

Not Everyone is Heard.

You have a leadership voice. Discover it today.



82% of team members feel misunderstood and undervalued!

We can change the story so everyone around the table feels heard, valued and liberated.



    Everyone has a leadership voice, whether they know it or not. From the most quiet to the most gregarious, we all have the ability to lead others.



    Most people don't know their leadership voice or how to use it. Some don't know what it is, others are insecure in their voice and have been told it is unimportant, and others immaturely overuse their voice and dominate the airwaves.



    5 Voices is designed to help every individual discover their leadership voice and be empowered to use it effectively. We believe teams and whole organisations can be transformed when everyone operates securely in their own voice and learns to value the voices of others.

When people don't use their natural leadership voice, here's what happens:

  • Meetings seem to go nowhere.
  • Wasted time, money and resources.
  • Misaligned teams that are ineffective and unhealthy.
  • Toxic work environment filled with drama and gossip.
  • People in the wrong role or position.
  • Disagreements that divide rather than unite. 

The 5 Voices is a powerful tool to help with:


  • Greater Self-Awareness

    Learn your voice and understand what it's like to be on the other side of your leadership.

  • Better Alignment

    Discover the sweet spots of those on your team, get better aligned and reach higher levels of performance.

  • Clear Communication

    Communicate what you mean without people taking it the wrong way and getting offended.

  • Effective Delegation

    Delegate more effectively to save time and increase productivity.


  • High Performance

    Confidently build high-performing teams, rather than taking shots in the dark and hoping people do their jobs well.

  • Quicker Decision Making

    Learn how to listen better, ask helpful questions and make quicker decisions.
