About Sandy MacGregor


Aren’t Leaders born to it? 

Not according to most of the recognised leaders. Three of the greatest leaders writing on this subject, Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery, Sir Winston Churchill and Sir William Slim say categorically.
“…. Leaders can be trained”

What follows is and Introductory letter to You



“The nation had the lion’s heart. I had the luck to give the roar.”  Sir Winston Churchill



You know that all champions have a coach and there is a process in becoming a champion.

The visible training of the “Oarsome Foursome” (the famous Australian Rowing Crew winning God at the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games) included at least three hours in the gym and three hours on the water, daily.  As well as the physical training, there was a psychologist from the Institute of Sport imparting many hours of mental training, including tools that were used during every waking hour.  On the day of the competition, the winner is influenced 90% mentally and 10% physically.

Leaders too need a coach.  To ensure you or your company has the ongoing capacity to meet the leadership challenges of the 21st century, choose your champions now.  Coach them to be the future leaders of your company.  Aren’t Leaders born to it?  Not according to Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery, Sir Winston Churchill and Sir William Slim …   “…. Leaders can be trained”.

Sandy MacGregor’s Leadership Course does significantly more than teach leadership – personal development is an equal component.  The quote from Napolean Bonaparte is particularly apt … “If I always appear prepared, it is because before entering on an undertaking, I have meditated for long and have foreseen what may occur.  It is not genius which reveals to me suddenly and secretly what I should do in circumstances unexpected by others; it is thought and meditation.”

In the following pages you are presented with a comprehensive leadership package that coaches aspiring champions.  It is divided into two parts:  Part A and Part B.  Each of Parts A and B are divided into 8 modules.  The Participant will load down and do Module 1 from each of Parts A and B before proceeding to Module 2.

This 8 Module package is self study with 1 hour of coaching from CALM Pty Ltd included

To enable you to get a flavour of what is to come you can download Module 1 of part A free of charge.

With the advent of computers, management consultants, foolproof management systems, financial controls, electronic reporting methods and effective management courses, the task of management is getting easier and easier.

Or … is it?

What happens when employees:-

Are not producing the desired results

Do not speak about issues of concern

Morale begins to sag

Are not working together as a team

Motivation is focused around TGIF  (Thank God it’s Friday)
Fail to communicate effectively and positively
Attitude and behaviour do not reflect loyalty to the organisation
Inwardly, then outwardly, display fear and rejection of all forms of change
Resign without apparent reason
Have difficulty in accepting responsibility or a belief that they are accountable for their actions  (or lack thereof)
Lose their desire to perform at the highest level
Encounter loss, grief or tragedy in any area of their life
Are fearful for their future, and have lost their willingness to learn
Actions no longer inspire your customers, to keep them coming back again and again … for a lifetime?

Can management deal with these issues?  Of course they can – when they learn to.  Leadership becomes that portion of management concerned with people.

Good leadership provides:
Clear sense of direction and purpose
Common goals and priorities
The exercise of consistent standards
The acceptance of responsibility and accountability
Loyalty – both up and down the line
Development of the art of “self motivation”
Encouragement to exceed expectations
Encouragement of contributions from all members of an organisation
Opportunities for the growth and development of each individual
Honesty, Fairness and Trust
Enthusiasm and Creativity

Leadership is not on the curriculum at school, or university, so how do we learn it, or … can we learn to be a leader?  Aren’t leaders born to it?  Field Marshall Viscount said leaders can be trained, so did Sir William Slim and Sir Winston Churchill, so does John Adair and so does Sandy MacGregor.

The teaching of functional leadership for industry received massive support from the UK based organisation “The Industrial Society” in 1969 when John Adair’s approach to leadership was adopted as the working model to be taught to industry.  Quoting Adair (Effective Leadership 1988): “The three leadership approaches – qualities, situational and group – are to be visualised as paths leading up the summit of a mountain.  If you go up one path you will be led to the other two.”

This group approach spread not only to industry but also to the Military Forces and to Human Resources in developing countries.  Professor Adair also taught it at the University of Surrey and the University of Exeter.  At the universities Professor Adair found a widespread sense that “What industry needs now is not bosses, but leaders.”  How true is this today?  The Karpin Report on Leadership and Management Skills identified the need for leadership training and formal education for Australia’s front line managers.  Current skills are seen to be falling far short of our Western World competition.

So where does one start?  With anyone of any age who has not had formal leadership training!  This may be at middle management or at the coal face – that is, in industry with young recruits or those that show promise.

As evidenced by Mike Cotter – a 56 year old corporate MD and CEO from Victoria – when he wrote to us in part saying:–

Having read your books, studied and implemented your scientifically proven principles and techniques, the results are simply amazing.

People are responding in ways I never thought possible.  They’re enjoying themselves more.

I’ve always thought of myself as reasonably good in the leadership stakes, but recently I’ve taken a quantum leap forward and for that Sandy MacGregor, you have my deepest gratitude. I’ve now got more balance in my life too.

For a final word on leadership, see these words of wisdom:–

The world will not belong to managers or those who make the numbers dance, as we used to say, or those who are conversant with all the business and jargon we use to sound smart.  The world will belong to passionate, driven leaders – people who not only have an enormous amount of energy, but who can energise those whom they lead.  
Jack Welch, Chairman and CEO of General Electric.

This Online Course coaches you with all the skills required to be a Leader in the world of today.
