Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

It has been famously said you will be the same person in five years as you are today, except for the people you meet and the books you read.

Deep Well takes this a step further, believing that unless you solicit some intentional input, growth and development don’t happen.

Steve brings his expertise in Professional Development by offering training presentations, and Leadership Development Programs.

Speaking at Training Events

It is well known that leaders and members are more receptive to training from an external source. As unfair as it may seem, the same message, delivered by a voice other than your own, is more likely to be heard and evoke a different response.

Deep Well can facilitate short term training delivered through one-on-one contact, group facilitation or large group presentations. 

Crafted content is presented with humour and insight, and is focussed on achieving practical outcomes. Steve’s approach is to deliver professional development from an evidence based approach.

Some of the content Steve has delivered recently includes:

  • Governance
  • Creative conflict 
  • Developing new leaders
  • Evangelism
  • Using power with integrity
  • Making better decisions
  • Improving staff performance
  • Building emotional intelligence

Is there a pressing issue you would like resolved? Speak to Steve about customising content for your team.

Leadership Development Program

Prepare. Engage. Apply.

Training is meant to have a purpose and progression, yet many organisations take an ad hoc approach to staff training, one month running a random session, the next sending a few staff offsite to hear a visiting speaker.

Developing a medium to long-term Leadership Development Program (LDP) for your organisation means there is a customised curriculum of training that will intentionally shape your organisation significantly for the future. 

LDP’s cover critical leadership skills at a mid to-senior level leadership level, so you have a consistent pipeline of future leaders at various stages of development. LDP’s are in direct contrast to off-the-shelf training products, and Steve will work with you to craft training that is indigenous to your organisation. 

Steve relies on evidence based learning, and has an aversion to popular “flavour of the month” content that gets recycled constantly through most organisations. 

Steve gently presented what we needed to hear as a church. He showed courage to address the elephants in the room, yet gave us hope that we can shape a bright future.
