What We Do

At Juno, we focus on three core areas of expertise:

Adaptive Leaders – Business Community Mentoring

Mentoring a disadvantaged community member, who is clearly in need of advice and coaching, creates a powerful motivation for leaders to overcome their own barriers and start experimenting with new leadership skills and behaviours. Our community mentoring programs are goal oriented and fully facilitated for the 13 weeks duration. We carefully screen and train proteges and mentors receive foundation training and ongoing coaching to assist them in their journey.

New Leaders

We provide programs that assist new leaders in making the transition to management. These programs focus on effective leadership and team behaviours. In all our programs we combine experiential learning with reflective work and group coaching. The programs are designed to be practical and all the material we cover is immediately applicable in the new leader’s work.

Job Active & DES Programs

We offer a suite of programs to Job Services Australia providers which are known for their high level of outcomes when working with long-term unemployed and diversity clients. Based on our proven combination of training, coaching and corporate mentoring, we have consistently achieved 50-70% outcome rates. We also provide programs for less disadvantaged clients and training for Job Active & DES consultants. Our interventions are based on a set of models and tools that we have found to be powerful, practical and ethical.

The Hay Group leadership styles are based on joint research with Danial Goleman, who popularised the notion of emotional intelligence. The reason we use the Hay Group model is that the 6 leadership styles map nicely to other common leadership models (see HERE for details) and that the supporting research identified which styles produce a long-term positive impact on people in the workplace. The styles are also easy to grasp and the model inherently promotes the notion of flexibility in leadership over honing what you are already good at.
The DiSC model has been around for a long time and has proven its usefulness in categorising leadership behaviours. It also maps nicely onto other common leadership models. We prefer to use a 360-degree version of the DiSC tool, so that the person can compare self-assessment with feedback from others.
One of the most useful models of individual and group values evolution today is Spiral Dynamics. It is a theory of human development that looks at individual and collective value systems and is a predictor of individual motivation and collective systems. Spiral Dynamics has been proven by extensive quantitative research. The original concept was developed by Clare Graves and later expanded and adapted by Don Beck and Chris Cowan. In their view the psychology of the human being is ‘an unfolding, emergent, oscillating spiralling process marked by the progressive subordination of older, lower-order behaviour systems to newer higher-order systems as man’s existential problems change’. Spiral Dynamics has recently been expanded into Wilber’s AQAL approach by Don Beck and is now called Spiral Dynamics Integral.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a model of human communication that focuses on tools and techniques for personal change and development. It also contains a powerful breakdown of communication structures, behaviours and language. Described by the original authors, John Grinder and Richard Bandler, as ‘the structure of magic’ it has been used in therapy, business and personal growth. NLP has created valuable models of rapport, body language, anchoring and managed to relate behavioural strategies to the internal representations we make in our head. All of our facilitators are Master Practitioners of NLP and are also trained in hypnosis and time line therapy.
For our coaching we combine a broad range of tools from NLP and cognitive-behavioural therapy with a behavioural coaching process. In our coaching, we will focus on giving the client more choices and on the client’s ability to implement these new choices. Our coaching is very action oriented, we want clients to be able to create a new future quickly. We have the necessary training to explain why a client is currently behaving the way they do, but our focus is on making changes and giving the client the tools to be successful in maintaining those changes.
