NRG Leadership Express program in 2023:

In 2023 I have revamped my NRG Leading for Express program to reflect the post Covid-19 world we are now living in. The program can be delivered either as a virtual program or face-face. It consists of 4 x half-day modules.

What makes NRG Leadership Express different to other leadership programs

  1. My unique style – I have been a corporate trainer since 2000. I have a unique delivery style that combines education, research, storytelling, structure and practical relevant skill development activities. I assist participants to unlock their leadership potential by helping them to remove self-limiting barriers, increase their awareness of their leadership style and show them a clear pathway they can follow to become more successful.
  2. High quality take away tools and course materials – All attendees leave the NRG Leadership Express program with practical tips, tools and templates. Our course materials have been constantly developed and refined over the past 18 years and are relevant, practical and clearly laid out.   
  3. The group experience – You will learn a lot about yourself by being part of a group on the NRG Leadership Express program. You will be encouraged to develop and enhance your working relationships with other attendees on the program. By being part of a high performing group, your own experience is greatly enhanced.

A quick note to say thank you very much for organising and running the leadership Express workshop last Friday. I got a lot out of it and look forward to introducing some of your ideas at work.
I really enjoyed the day, met some lovely people and was impressed with the energy in the room. The way you were able to involve all of the participants and initiate the sharing of ideas and experiences was first class.
I also liked how you allowed sufficient breaks for everyone to attend to any emails etc. The catering was delicious. Now it’s time to meditate.

 I would strongly recommend Steve Herzberg and the NRG team when considering a conference MC or development training for your business, your team or yourself.

Steve has been our conference MC since 2015. He has also delivered engaging, entertaining and relevant leadership key notes at our conferences.

 He brings to the table the perfect blend of experience and exposure to real world contemporary situations . This gives him a balanced strategic understanding of the opportunities and challenges businesses face in the Australian market today. 

Steve is a very skilled and engaging communicator. He knows how to successfully build relationships and communicate effectively with people across all ages, genders and cultures. 

Finally, Steve has always displayed a bias for action. He is clearly focussed on the highly professional delivery of his material. The outcomes we have achieved with Steve always exceed expectations. Aria Technologies would welcome the opportunity to work with Steve in the future.

During a 21 year career at ANZ as a senior operational manager I worked closely with Steve for more than 10 years, utilising his services as a corporate trainer for my operational management teams. Steve provided energetic and targeted leadership courses which were always well received. If you are looking for your leadership team to develop and grow, I would highly recommend Steve.

I have worked closely with Steve for 10 years both as a presenter and as a business owner. He is a highly infectious individual who specialises in getting the most out of individuals. Personally, Steve has helped mentor me as a presenter and assisted me to be recognised as one of the leading technical presenters in the Microsoft community. He has also assisted, developed and grown our consulting and sales teams by enabling them with the confidence to deal with various scenarios. This has been measurable in their improved performance and ongoing customer satisfaction. Steve truly knows how to develop individuals and teams by enabling them to perform at their peak.
