A Message from Dr. Peter Little AO

Never has it been more important for each of us to develop our talents throughout our life, as globalisation and digital disruption impact heavily on our businesses and professional work. We should strive to nurture our leadership skills and constantly adapt our thinking to a fast-changing world. 

This requires us to learn constantly and be open to coaching and mentoring by others who are both suitably qualified and on the same journey. 

The team at Stone Creative: Leadership Group are just such people and their programs are so well targeted to those wanting to succeed in a world  of never ending change. I have been privileged to contribute to some of their programs and look forward to continuing an important journey together.

Professor Peter Little AO - Former Deputy Vice Chancellor of Queensland University of Technology and Order of Australia recipient.

our philosophy and commitment

We are committed to be the midwife to your organisation's VISION!

We are the ones that understand the process and can see you through the transition and pain – your family and friends can hold your hand but we will be the ones telling you to PUSH. You’ll have to be vulnerable, but it's us that are willing to get our hands dirty.

You cannot give birth safely without a midwife that understands the process and the intuition to create the right environment.

It's your vision but we'll clean it up with 'CLARITY' and give it back to you - so you can see the beauty of what you were designed to carry.

Simply put - don't self-birth your vision.  Let us support you!

That's why we are constantly innovating so we can 'create the space for your dreams to come true', by providing you the right environment consultants and community to birth your dreams. 

In Purpose, Prosperity and the Pain in-between,

The Stone Creative Team
