Zed Ed Leadership Academy

The ZedAxis Biopharma Leader Accelerator Program

Whether you’re a CEO looking to accelerate your own personal leadership performance, and/or team dynamics and productivity, ZedAxis has the Biopharma Leadership Accelerator Program to meet your needs and objectives.

Team coaching pathway

Our team coaching pathway is primarily an in-house program for organisations, designed to strengthen and facilitate existing corporate teams, with the focus on achieving a measurable increase in STEMM innovation, internal communication efficiency and team productivity.

The program combines both live and online seminars, to promote team engagement, commitment and leadership development.

Indications for team coaching programs

  • Losing valuable employees
  • High employee turnover
  • Recruiting the wrong STEMM executives
  • People management issues
  • Teams missing KPIs
  • Culture of resistance to change
  • Poor track record of STEMM innovation
  • Poor employee engagement
  • Teams pulling in different directions

Indications for group coaching programs

  • Under-earning
  • No/slow pay increases
  • Overwhelmed by work volume & deadlines
  • Stuck in a rut
  • Hesitant in meetings
  • Failure to meet performance criteria
  • Difficulty managing teams
  • Conflict with peers and team members
  • Experiencing burnout

Group coaching pathway

Our group coaching pathway is designed for individual biopharma industry peers to come together in online Zoom room groups, and take their leadership accelerator journey with a specialist STEMM executive coach. 

This is the virtual boardroom, and a smart new way to learn, collaborate, network and amplify your leadership capabilities. Online coaching programs have been proven over many years to deliver outstanding results, and are every bit as powerful as their terrestrial equivalents.

Our leader development framework increases objective measures of performance

ZedAxis Biopharma Leader Accelerator Programs are derived from the evidence-based Mental Toughness psychology framework developed by English psychologists Professor Peter Clough, Dr Fiona Earle, Dr Keith Earle and Dr D Sewell. This approach has been further developed and commercialised by behavioural economist, Doug Strycharczyk, of AQR International, to equip individuals to strive and thrive in the face of volatility and change. Nowhere is change more evident than in the biopharma industry, which is rapidly reinventing itself as new understandings and technologies come online. Our team and group coaching programs harness the Mental Toughness framework and deploy MTQ48 psychometric testing to both measure leadership performance and offer powerful developmental strategies, These reliably transport participants and organisations to the next level, which opens up a whole new dimension on their leadership journey. We provide an holistic, 3D view and experience of human potential, which is a key point of difference with our leader accelerator programs. Biopharma professionals and managers who strive to perform with greater personal positive impact will find comprehensive and measurable increases in their leadership efficacy and soft skills over the course of our 12-week and 6-month programs.



50% variance in peoples' performance is due to their state of mind. Typically, we only invest 5% of our time optimising our performance through mental training.
