Future-proof your leaders

You see it every day.

Capability gaps. Leaders aren’t having the conversations they need to. And they’re not sure where to start needing direction through uncertainty.

The kicker? You see the potential in your leaders.

It’s time to unlock it.

It’s not about being perfect. It’s about tapping into possibilities and supporting leaders to:

  • Have trickier conversations

  • Manage and lift performance

  • Build self-awareness

  • Communicate, negotiate + present with influence

  • Represent and advocate for their teams

  • Collaborate better + cultivate productive working relationships

  • Build trust + connection

  • Shape strategic thinking

  • Amplify + deepen motivation toward your purpose

  • Create a culture of psychological safety

At Top Five, we draw on neuroscience, motivation research and behaviour change principles to deliver leadership programs that amplify your leaders.

We help them see themselves as leaders. So they can define it, own it, and live it.

When you unlock leaders, you unlock high performing teams that operate with confidence through uncertainty, greater impact with more ease, and more sustainability in a world that’s rife with burnout.

Create succession plans. Retain your talent. Future-proof your organisation.

Unleash your leaders and amplify results

Our leadership programs range from assessment tools, workshops, to programs complete with individual, small group coaching, and repeatable resources to help your leaders create high performing teams.

A 100% success rate? No, that’s not a typo. Take a look at what our clients have reported:


100% reported bringing MORE IMPACT + VALUE to their roles

100% reported feeling MORE CONNECTED to their role + org


Receiving these results is the norm for our team.

Are you ready to deliver a 100% hit rate for your leadership program?

Meet Top Five

Led by Clare Desira, International Coach of the Year and Fellow of the Centre for Sustainability Leaders (now Monash Sustainable Development Institute), Top Five has worked with thousands of people across 40 countries to flip the script on mindset, resilience + leadership. They don’t call us the most refreshing take on mindset, resilience, and leadership for nothing.

As a team of award-winning mindset coaches, we deliver innovative leadership programs that disrupt unhelpful thinking + patterns, develop new perspectives, raise the bar on solutions, and help your leaders create high performing teams.

Client Recommendations

Right now leaders need the ability to flex for the future. We need to support them with their mindset, resilience and how people think. Top Five Movement are the leaders in this space. Clare + the team are contemporary in their thinking and how they prioritise neuroscience, theory + practice.

In our Australian Red Cross leadership programs, Clare has equipped our leaders with repeatable tools and resources for challenging “old” patterns of behaviour, creating a culture of possibility and greater productivity, purpose and focus.

I would recommend Clare + the Top Five Movement’s coaching and training to any person or organisation looking to stretch themselves in ways they didn’t think possible.

As an individual, the impact Clare has had on me both personally and professionally is hard to sum up in words. The growth I have felt over the past year of my leadership coaching I would not have experienced anywhere else. Clare creates an environment where you feel you can safely challenge and push yourself in such a fun yet authentic way. Thank you Clare.

– Rebecca Ridings, Organisation Development Team, Australian Red Cross

Top Five Movement has made a significant impact on our business. For five years your program has developed emerging leaders personally and professionally. You’ve change their mindset from “I can’t” to “I really can”, to build their confidence and to become the next generation of leaders in our organisation.

Your program continues to be the most effective leadership program I’ve seen in my many years of delivering these types of programs.

I’m in tears even thinking about the bravery of the leaders at the end of the program as they share the changes that they’ve experienced. It’s just extraordinary. We celebrate the change that your program brings into the lives of the participants each year, and the significance that brings into their future from that moment on. They’re different people and so I thank you and the team for what you bring through your program.

– Barb Brown, Executive Manager People and Culture, St Lukes Health

Top Five came highly recommended and we liked their easy, friendly and fun approach. The Top Five team has now worked on three engaging, relevant, interesting, and thought provoking projects with our team – opening our global Women in Leadership Forum, running a mindset workshop at our head office and creating an online goal setting and mindset program which we delivered to team members across 40 countries. Their work really hit the mark and translated well globally.

Our team feel like they have tools to help them understand issues through a different lens, create a better work environment for everyone by raising the bar, solve problems they haven’t been able to solve and have clearer perspectives on how to encourage change.

Natalie Juricic, Global Learning + Development Manager, Intrepid Group

As CFO, it is my job to research. I spent a day and a half researching for a company who could help our team build resilience ahead of some exciting growth. I looked at various companies but I kept coming back to Top Five Movement.

Our program was even better than I expected and I was surprised that every member of the team responded well. Top Five Movement’s work is helping our team to be more productive, aid transition to change, have better communication and open discussion and build a renewed willingness to assist each other. I’ve never seen the team working so well together. We look forward to working with Clare + the Top Five team further.

– Chris Anderson, Former CFO, Retzos Group

As a management team we needed to regroup following some organisational challenges. We planned two days together and to help us get the most of our valuable time together, Top Five kicked us off with a session on mindset. After this session our team felt excited, grounded, positive, equipped and ready to focus on recovery.

The framework Top Five shared added to our planning sessions and has since become part of our ways of working – it has already been used by our HR and Corporate Affairs teams.

– Kelly Quirke, Corporate Affairs Director, Royal Canin (Mars)

I brought my leadership team together for a lunchtime session with Top Five to help them improve their mindset and level of team support. Their style of presentation was excellent.

Following the workshop as a team we felt energised, engaged and focused. Our industry is all about service and the tools Top Five shared will help us create a better team and customer service environment.

As a result of our work together the team are committed to lead by example and be more helpful, productive and encouraging with their team communications.
