Team Testimonials


HyperionDev is southern Africa’s largest tech education provider. Founded in 2012, the company has brought coding skills to thousands of students in more than 40 countries. 

We have the privilege of guiding a group of HyperionDev's leaders on the LeadMe Leadership Programme, through our online modules of learning content and live team coaching sessions. 

Carla Gustafson, Head of Talent at HyperionDev, recently shared the impact the team and organisation are experiencing so far since starting the programme. Participants are seeing changes in their behaviour around productivity, habits and how they understand and relate to their colleagues. There is now a shared language, making it easier for everyone to explain what they are experiencing and how to implement their learnings. Overall, there is greater cohesiveness and better communication within the team. 

Personal and team development requires time and commitment from a company. In a fast-paced and ever changing environment, HyperionDev prioritised LeadMe through a policy of ‘Learning Fridays’ - all activities related to learning and development, including our programme, happen on this day - with support from the leaders not to book meetings on Fridays. Here is what HyperionDev leaders shared about their experience on LeadMe:

“I have learnt that the mind is a powerful tool that one can use to their benefit by constantly learning and applying.” 

"I now understand how to maintain new habits."

“When I don't understand something someone has done, I now take 10 seconds to think about their values and how that motivated them to do or say something.”

"I appreciate the scheduling of energy and priorities as it has helped me get the most out of my day.”
