How important is professional leadership development?

Studies show that most people leave an organisation over issues that a manager or leader can influence. Is your organisation contributing to this statistic? What reason does your organisation have for not investing in professional development… is it lack of time, skills, revenue? It does not have to be this way.

Developing Leadership Skills

Developing leadership skills within the organisation is the first step toward succession planning. Many organisations promote people who are functionally good at their job, or because they have been there a number of years. Investing in leadership skills early allows these valued employees to practice, develop and demonstrate the leadership skills that are necessary for the successful transition into a leadership.

Transitioning Towards Leadership Workshop

At the end of this workshop the participant will be more aware of their strengths and weaknesses and will have new skills to draw when finding themselves in challenging situations.

Disc Workshops by Do Elephant Jumps

We focus on people reading, the power of observation and asking the right questions. In this activity driven workshop participants are challenged to find the differences between perception, assumptions and fact.

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to ask clean questions to make better decisions, increase trust and encourage solution driven thinking.


  • People reading skills
  • Improved listening skills
  • Empowering people with words

And if you insist on continuing to make assumptions about my character, I’ll advise you only this: assume you will always be wrong. – Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me

We focus on communicating with clarity. In this workshop we go beyond using the right words we work on tonality, breath and body language.

At the end of this workshop the participant will know how to prime their audience and communicate more effectively by matching body language to their words.


  • Know how to prime your audience
  • Awareness of non-verbal messaging
  • Improved communication skills

What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The above modules are supported with easy to understand explanations of how the brain works enabling participants to apply the concepts they learn to multiple situations. The workshops are activity driven and layered to help build understanding and retention. As our brain continuously processes information our workshops are spaced out to allow a reflection period and provide the opportunity for participants to ask clarifying questions.

Additional workshops are provided upon request. We can provide a catch-up workshop for participants that do not have the assumed basic knowledge; ideally this workshop should be done one month in advance of this program

Our Mission

The mission of Do Elephants Jump is to help people successfully transition into leadership. We feel it is our responsibility to do more than just handover knowledge… we provide transformational tools, techniques and support to assist people in removing obstacles preventing them from becoming great leaders.

Do Elephants Jump is a consulting, coaching and training business created to further develop leadership thinking and communication skills to anyone wanting to learn.

About Us

In some fashion everyone is a leader whether that be of self or others… our vision is to have people ready and able to step into a leadership role. This business was started from compassion… for many, being a leader of others represents success but without the skills it turns into a lonely nightmare – the job they used to love no longer exists for them and they did not have the skill set or the support to be successful in their new role… where do they go, who can they talk to, where can they learn, how do they find the time to learn…

Now, they could choose to work with Do Elephants Jump where coaching, teaching and workshops are available face-to-face, online, to an individual or a corporation with flexible times to suit most schedules. Our sessions are designed to be short and quick allowing you to focus for short bursts of time, they are spaced out so you can implement and come back with questions and are peppered with challenges to create accountability. We have graduated programs or you can design your own based on your needs.

Our client base is diverse and includes; entrepreneurs, CEO’s, lawyers, students, not-for-profit, schools and health-care professionals… We take the complexity out of leadership and remove the ambiguity from communication.
