Meaningful support from the top down

Leaders today face unique challenges, with progressive workplaces demanding that the human experience be valued as much as profit. We believe if you put your people first, profit follows. Sanctus partners with leaders to develop the grit, compassion, care and authenticity they need for your people to flourish.

People demand more from their leaders

Conventional manager training doesn’t quite cut it anymore. Leaders today are expected to play an active role in making work a safer, happier place for everyone. When employees feel valued and inspired by their leaders, they achieve things they never thought possible:


Higher engagement


Less stress


Higher productivity

New managers

For people taking their first steps into leadership, it’s all new. We help managers establish authority, communicate clearly, and remain adaptable. So that when challenges do inevitably arise, they’re best equipped to deal with them. New managers use Sanctus to:

  • Prioritise competing responsibilities
  • Cope with pressure to perform
  • Set clear boundaries and expectations

Experienced managers

Experienced managers are under pressure to advance their ‘soft skills’, at the same time as looking after their own wellbeing. We coach managers towards establishing a deeper understanding of employee wants and needs, in order to nurture stronger relationships with direct reports and superiors alike.

Experienced managers use Sanctus to:

  • Proactively tackle stress and prevent burnout
  • Create a culture people don’t want to leave
  • Develop, grow, and learn from periods of uncertainty

Senior leadership

Sanctus coaches senior leaders to prioritise their own wellbeing, and develop the skills needed to approach high-stakes decisions with both kindness and pragmatism. When senior leaders navigate the pressure and complexity of their own role with compassion, self-awareness, and clarity, they model to employees what it means to truly place the human element at the heart of the organisation. Senior leaders work with their Sanctus Coach to:

  • Prioritise work life balance
  • Effectively manage performance at scale
  • Make difficult decisions with confidence and care
