LDI - Leadership Development Intensive Retreat

What is LDI?

“Since attending the LDI I am seriously more comfortable in my own skin. I don’t need
a referenced set of tools or a particular recipe - I now have the confidence to trust
my gut and to fully utilise the skills and qualities that I already have.”

Blair Shortall, National Key Account Manager

Many describe the LDI as a transformational process, and a profoundly life-altering experience. You will leave the retreat with a highly developed awareness of your innate leadership potential, plus the skills to switch from an automatic way of living and leading, to one that is more authentic and purposeful. 


Our process is very experiential - it will engage you physically, emotionally and spiritually, not just mentally. Because of this, the learning is embedded at a deep level and the toolkit becomes a part of who you are - ask our graduates.

The LDI retreat is offered several times a year as an open enrolment programme in Hawke's Bay. It can also be customised for you personally (as a 1:1 executive retreat), your team or organisation, at an offsite venue that suits your location. If you prefer, we can deliver the LDI online – for individuals and groups, in any country. Please contact us to discuss your needs.


  • Become more self aware, confident and authentic in order to inspire and empower those around you

  • Harness your strengths and reframe your weaknesses to develop your own unique leadership style

  • Learn to trust your intuition,  live and work with a sense of deep purpose –so you have the passion and the resilience to stay true to your path.

The LDI is a five-day residential retreat that will revolutionise your ability to lead yourself, your team and your organisation. This world-class programme, developed by Dr John J Scherer, has been honed over 30 years with leaders from 65 countries. LDINZ is the only organisation offering this unique programme in Australasia.

“Leadership Programmes are a dime a dozen. But there is only one LDI”

Karen Smylie, Human Resources Manager

Coaching - Supporting you to go to your learning edges

Coaching Packages

A good coach can support you to stretch your limits, expand your thinking, unlock barriers, build new skills, or help you through challenging circumstances.


In a safe, confidential environment, you will be encouraged to explore your options - and your growing edges. Extensive research reinforces the value and effectiveness of coaching, particularly post-course, to embed learning and ground behavioural change. We offer a number of different coaching packages and also a number of different coaches - it's all about the relationship.

“There are probably not many people who can say that they go to work and change peoples' lives (whole life, not just work life). Well, YOU can say that, Robyn Wynne-Lewis, as that is what you have done for me - and many other people I am sure.”

Tracey Fraser, PGG Wrightson

“I have found the individual coaching I received invaluable. We worked through a range of practical tools, which helped me identify my responses to challenging situations. I have utilised these new approaches effectively to work with others through uncomfortable issues. The coaching has also helped me maintain my equilibrium while I balance a stimulating and demanding role at work with study and raising a family.” 

Penny Rounthwaite, Ministry of Social Development

Customised Facilitation

Customised Facilitation

We love collaborating to design customised leadership workshops/programmes that ‘hit the mark’ in terms of being right for your particular people, your circumstances, your culture.

We pride ourselves on listening, asking good questions, thinking outside the square, and using the full breadth of our experience - as well as our international network - to co-create processes that ‘land’, and that have a lasting impact.

We hold distinct experience and expertise in the following topic areas:

  • Self Awareness

  • Purpose-driven leadership

  • High Performing Teams

  • Brave Conversations

  • Mindful, Embodied Leadership

"We engaged LDINZ to assist with some challenges in our management team that were impacting our levels of trust. We knew that we needed a carefully considered bespoke solution, designed with our specific needs in mind, not an 'off the shelf' workshop or intervention. We were fearful that shining a light on our challenges might make them worse, not better.


Robyn's approach was perfect for our needs.​ She demonstrated sensitivity and experience, she 'got' us, and she quickly earned our confidence. The work we have done around brave conversations and team building has been of immense value and has exceeded our expectations. We are back on track and excited about the future – Thank you! 

Devlin, Cameron and Hayes, Palmerston North
