Wayfinder - Phuelling women in leadership

Wayfinder is all about Professional Development for High Potential Women. Wayfinder is a challenging and holistic professional development program designed to embolden and equip high potential females with the necessary confidence, skills and tenacity to amplify their talents and contribution within your organization.

Team Building Event


The story for women is changing, but the re-writing is going to take time.

It’s no secret that although many organisations are working towards gender parity across all levels of their businesses, the progress is slow. The World Economic Forum 2021 report forecasts that it is likely gender parity will not be reached in under 100 years. Clearly we still have work to do.

This doesn’t come just at a cost for women, it comes at a cost for the teams they work on and the organisations they work in. The research tells us that:

  • Companies with more women in leadership roles perform better, have better family policies, higher staff retention, and greater profits.
  • Diverse teams are more innovative, productive and experience higher morale and greater employee engagement.
  • Employees on diverse and inclusive teams put in more effort and demonstrate greater commitment.

Wayfinder is a challenging and holistic professional development program designed to embolden and equip high potential females with the necessary confidence, skills and tenacity to amplify their talents and contribution within your organisation.


Wayfinder participants embark on a 7-module journey delivered over 6 months via a blended and immersive learning programme. A combination of face to face and virtual workshops allow for both remote access and collaborative networking and connection.

Accountability and support is assured throughout the programme, with participants being assigned learning partners and follow up work to be completed in between modules.

Friendships are formed, relationships are strengthened, confidence is collectively increased throughout the programme.


  • Be bolder, braver, more self-assured women with a firmer, more grounded understanding of the value they bring.
  • Have confidence in their abilities and the willingness to share their knowledge and expertise with clarity and authority through presentation and storytelling skills.
  • Possess greater self-awareness leading to greater understanding of how to flex their personal style to influence others.
  • Build the ability and confidence to manage and influence emotions of self and others in challenging situations.
  • Increase their visibility and profile among senior leaders in the business.

The team from Phuel facilitated a problem definition workshop for 50 or so of our staff, plus a few more on Skype, as part of an ideas challenge we are running. They are fantastic facilitators who commanded the room, and presented the tricky concept of problem definition in a coherent and though provoking way. Phuel's approach was professional from beginning to end, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them

Resilience & Mental Toughness


Recognise the crucial role Mental Toughness, Resilience and Wellbeing play in all facets of your personal and professional success. Use increased awareness to more optimally deal with stress, pressure adversity and challenge as well as increasing your effectiveness, energy, focus and productivity.

Resilience and Mindfulness Coaching and Training

OUR APPROACH - Resilience & Mental Toughness

Our approach to mental toughness, resilience and wellbeing is that they are learnable skills that can differentiate between those who merely cope and those who actually thrive in uncertain times. Navigating today's increasingly complex and volatile business terrain requires deep reservoirs of tenacity, optimism and hardiness. We use one of the world's most contemporary and scientifically grounded assessment tools to inform how we empower and embed both a resilient and positive mindset in individuals and organisations.


Mental Toughness is a plastic personality trait which means it can be developed.

Developing Mental Toughness teaches you to handle stress, pressure and change more effectively through making fundamental shifts in the way you think about problems and by equipping you with the tactics and strategies that mentally tough people use.

Our highly tailored Program uses the MTQPlus™ psychometric tool and will measure your mental toughness as well as provide tools and techniques to optimise performance and wellbeing.


Challenge yourself in this 4-hour workshop to reach peak performance and commence the journey to becoming the best version of you.

Our Mental Toughness Express Workshops include the MTQ 4Cs™ assessment and are dynamic, energetic, engaging and challenge you to unleash your full potential to reach peak performance in your personal, professional or sporting life.


For many people in leadership positions, both work and life are becoming more challenging and many now report that they are becoming increasingly stressed. Mental Toughness is a significant factor in determining how a Leader responds to stress, pressure and challenge – and how that impacts on performance, wellbeing and positive behaviours of their teams.

Our program utilises the ILM72™ assessment tool and makes it possible to measure an individual’s adopted style and if necessary develop an individual's leadership style to achieve the best results for their team and the organisation.

The Program provides leaders with development strategies and plans to help them perform under pressure, and to support others around them. This leads to better performance, wellbeing and, in many instances, an improved work-life balance. They will learn to approach challenges, stress and pressure with a positive ‘can do’ attitude.


The world's best kept productivity secret! Properly understood and implemented, mindfulness results in increased focus, motivation and creativity. In addition to helping maintain peak performance, it produces extraordinary benefits for an organisation's culture. As people become more attuned to how their moods and behaviours effect others, we see more empathy and strong personal bonds generated. Social cohesion tends to be enhanced as people become more adept at self-awareness and self-regulation.

High Performing Teams


Improve collaboration, cohesion and communication within your teams by championing attention to details, radical accountability, full-tilt commitment and deep trust.

Team Coaching, Team Training

OUR APPROACH - Team Coaching & Team Training

Our attitude towards teams is that they are the lifeblood of an organisation. And at the heart of high performing teams is collaboration. They seamlessly work together to share information and resources, to break down silos and find synergies, to execute the leader’s clear vision and to solve problems more effectively. In order to generate these levels of communication and cohesion, teams must examine their leadership and group styles to identify shortcomings and areas for improvement. Our assessments pinpoint where and how to foster greater connection and collaboration and form part of the facilitated solution.


Avoid common dysfunctions in order to generate richer communication, deeper alignment and greater levels of collaboration.


Recognise the effective and ineffective thinking styles that ultimately determine overall performance. Build team cohesion by identifying how to accommodate, appreciate and leverage disparate styles.


Develop and align your team by better understanding their unique styles of interaction. Identify behaviours for the group to change and build or strengthen to better achieve synergy.


Improve self-awareness and communication skills by understanding individual's thinking preferences. Reduce interpersonal conflict by being able to appreciate team member differences.
