Lead yourself. Lead others. Lead always.


Every high performing leader thinks about, ponders and strategises to accomplish one thing.



Do you?


Are you:

  • Looking for that competitive edge in work and life? 
  • Committed to creating a high-performance culture?
  • A leader or aspiring leader within your organisation?

HPL™ is for you!


The ultimate programme for high performing leaders who are committed to excellence, exponential growth and deepening their authentic influence.

HPL™ is designed to equip leaders with the mindset, vision-set and skill-set to sustain high-performance over the long-term.

Develop a deeper understanding of how the world's great visionary leaders think, how they traverse adversity, how they motivate themselves and their teams, how they plan for success and how they make growth a part of their DNA.

This full-day experience equips participants to maximise their personal leadership, increasing their leadership influence. Your facilitator is James Laughlin, a high performance leadership expert and seven-time world champion.

James is deeply passionate about the future of leadership and has spent several years interviewing former world leaders, fortune 200 CEO's, professional athletes and game-changers.  During his interviews, and thousands of leadership coaching conversations, James has discovered that seven core pillars of high performance leadership underpin all great leaders and organisations.


After completing the HPL™ programme, you'll understand how to:
  • Embrace a gargantuan competitive advantage.
  • Powerfully influence those around you.
  • Radically multiply your productivity.
  • Master monomaniacal focus.
  • Create a magnetic organisational culture.
  • Skilfully navigate adversity like a pro.
  • Craft a compelling vision.
  • Install high performance habits for that slight edge.
HPL™ is essential for leaders who want to:
  • Cultivate the habits to maximise their wellbeing, mindset and peer-relations.
  • Develop world-class personal leadership
  • Build a high-performance culture.
  • Curate an inspiring vision.

What James does really well as a coach and facilitator is knowing when to chuck a grenade in the middle to see what happens and then combining that with knowing when to sit back and say nothing.

James' reflections and insights are invaluable!

His intuitive and giving nature helped me to successfully transition into new personal, professional and business opportunities. I have a much better ability to achieve the goals that I set out. 

Brad Yates

I would recommend James as a leadership trainer to any leader, and at the end of the day, leaders need to be able to improve themselves to be the best they can possibly be. James understands that it’s a constant, never ending journey to be the best version of yourself and that’s why I would recommend him. If you’re a leader reading this then you need to get started with James' programme.
