Leaders Unplugged®

After years of working with Executives, Norton Crumlin & Associates  has developed Leaders Unplugged®, our proprietary framework, as part of our desire to improve the quality of Australian leadership and our ambition to allow Executives to achieve success while keeping them safe and sane.

This framework will assist you in getting it right and in getting your message across effectively to your teams and stakeholders. 

The Leaders Unplugged® Story

We have all sat through numerous corporate presentations that have missed the mark.

We have seen leaders miss a golden opportunity to engage their teams in a positive way.

We have also agonised over the preparation and presentation of a leadership speech. 

So we decided there has to be a better way.

What is Leaders Unplugged®?

Leaders Unplugged® is about getting your message right and getting it across. 

Leaders Unplugged® is the overarching process we use to guide you to clearly understand where you are going, who you need to get it done, how you will get it done, how you will get it across to the people you work with and what systems and processes you need to ensure success.

Why consider Leaders Unplugged®?

Leaders Unplugged® will take you on the journey to becoming a confident, successful Executive who

  • Challenges and motivates your team to exceed business objectives and maximise performance

  • Offers clarity to your team about their own role within the organisation

  • Inspires confidence that you, as their leader, can really lead.

  • Keeps your audience engaged - really engaged - all the way through as you present your vision and plans for the future

Leaders Unplugged® is available online or via 1:1 consultation.

"His style is flexible, subtle and engaging.”

"Thank you very much for your assistance this week. From my perspective the workshop was a great success and an important "first step". I have only received positive feedback. In fact, one of our partners (with 40 years experience in professional services) told me it was the best program of this type he has ever been to.”

"Firstly, many thanks for your time last week, I appreciated the candour with which I can speak with you both. I believe the opportunity to work with you will certainly help with this somewhat unique situation and in my own personal development.”

"Again thanks for your fantastic expertise in this endeavour, I doubt very much that we would have achieved so much quality material in such a short time without your input and tremendous ability to not only hear words but understand meanings."

"I had my last session with Jack Crumlin today as part of the DAP on-boarding. I can’t tell you how helpful he has been to me as I have learnt to navigate EY. He has been superb in making me aware of, and focusing my development needs and then providing great frameworks to help me move forward. And I have loved his pragmatic insight on how this place really works.

Not sure how much we pay him, but it’s been invaluable for me. Thank you"
