- Behaviour – how leaders and employees navigate in relation to the objectives they need to achieve
- Motivation – what drives leaders and employees in the right direction?

- Coaching skills and mindset – a leader that masters coaching skills and mindset acts as a role model for the employees and has a higher change of succeeding in employee motivation
