Our 'why' is to develop leaders who contribute to sustainable business growth and success by enabling a healthy and humanistic workplace. We support and develop those who support and develop others. The Leadership Sphere was formed in 2007 by Phillip Ralph and Associates who have a long history of supporting organisations to create breakthrough performance. Our point of difference is a structured systemic approach to achieve realistic and sustainable positive change.
We bring together a community of growth-minded leaders who inspire each other to embrace positive and effective leadership habits and practices so that we can be more purpose-driven, can navigate and create meaningful change, and support the development of today's leaders and the next generation of leaders.
Here you will become a part of The Leadership Sphere community which includes access to free online courses as well as being amongst the first to hear about our exciting and revolutionary training programs.

The program was one of the best I have attended given it was very timely. From the rich and "real" content to the great facilitation of Phil, Felicity, Andrew, Ash and Roderick it was one course that stays with you. I would recommend this program for those who want to create a more human organisation where people want to come to work. Dare to Lead is a great experience.
Simone Wright, VP HR Asia Pacific, Pearson.
I have worked with Philip Ralph of TLS as an Executive Coach for the last 1.5 years. This has been part of an Executive Team development program that he co-facilitated. Whilst I enjoy the team based sessions and find these to be really valuable, Phil’s particular combination of wisdom, practical experience and empathy allows him to be an exceptional coach. With his coaching and guidance I have evolved as both a manager and a leader. This experience has allowed me to deepen my self-reflective practice, refine my system level diagnostic skills, strengthen my influencing tactics and evolve my understanding of the work of leadership to new levels. This work has allowed me focus on what is core to my purpose, of enabling and empowering others and creating the conditions that allow them flourish whilst I continue taking the steps up to be a high impact authentic leader.
Rebecca Lovitt, General Manager, Marketing
The Dare to Lead program not only changed the way that I work and interact with my team, but also how I conduct myself in my personal life: leaning into my values, setting and enforcing boundaries, and ensuring I'm not listening to those in the cheap seats of my arena. I am a braver, kinder, more courageous leaders, mum, partner and human having participated in this program.

But have you ever stopped to think about a leadership development detox for yourself or your organisation?
