Leadership recruitment

The right person in the right role makes all the difference to whether your business grows, stagnates or withers away. Finding the right person for your business isn't just about skills and experience, it's also making sure they complement your existing team, and understand your businesses values and goals.

We search, find and align leaders and managers to execute and accelerate your strategy. We appoint leaders ranging from CEOs through to general managers, operation managers, project managers and also sales and client relationship managers.

"Red Diamond Leaders and Mirinda are very thorough and professional with the placements arranged for us. Their response is fast, and we have had 100 % fill rate with excellent candidates.


I appreciated the way Mirinda really listens and quickly “gets it”. Our candidates spoke well of the process as well – that’s a win win."

- Martin Leenders, Managing Director, Safety at Work


Leadership training

You are a successful business owner and you are busy. You therefore need the biggest return on your investment in the shortest time possible. Our 5 x 5 Red Diamond Language is the sensible solution. It will become your roadmap, the ultimate strategy and your constant guide. It will give you great clarity in times when you need to make difficult decisions, but also when you are on the run.

Our fully-customised leadership and management training programmes give small business leaders the skills they need to cultivate a strong work ethic, improve communication, increase productivity and foster collaboration. In a nutshell, we can guide you to become the leader your people will love.


We also guide family business leaders to plan seamless leadership succession.


Team Trust Strategies

Does your team have communication problems? Are they pulling in different directions? We train teams to work together in harmony in three simple steps.

We work with you and your team to pave the way to building team trust, creating a clean slate for your team to move forward.

Our Traffic Light Guide will quickly and powerfully shift your team’s mindset, which in turn changes behaviour.

Your Traffic Light Guide will become the bedrock of your soul-singing team. Any team can be transformed from dysfunctional to dynamic as they discover new possibilities for transformational team building.

The first step is calling Mirinda to talk about your team's challenges. Then we’ll meet at your business, and she can show you, step-by-step, how to implement the Traffic Light Guide.

You decide if you want us to facilitate the process for you over the course of a week.

Scale Successfully

Continued growth, without structured and systemised scaling, will eventually result in heartbreak. You won't see it coming though because unstructured growth will first give you a great taste of success. You will then want to grow more because you are determined that more growth will result in more success.


You are unfortunately, blissfully unaware of the danger lurking just around the corner. It is only a matter of time before an unstructured business will become unmanageable. One of the signs that a business is starting to grow out of control is that business owners find it hard to hold team members accountable.


You weren't warned that not only will more of the same not guarantee future success, but that the success you have won't last, and that it will slowly wither away. We, however, hope that you'll scale successfully before you turn that corner.

Your current success is a dim indicator of future success. Your success, and your emotional wellbeing, will probably wither away unless you build an effective team rooted in team trust who work in harmony.  The good news is that it is also the springboard to successfully scale your small business.
