Authentic leadership through self insight

FREE

The Authentic Leadership programme is designed for senior leaders who are committed to understanding their authentic self and how to transform this insight into action.  It is based on the premise that leadership is more than a set of tools that can be brought out to engineer an outcome or fix a problem. Leadership that is authentic, sustainable and transformative always starts from within the leader. Many people aren’t aware that the choices they make derive from the inner dynamics that drive what they do and say - and that their internal experiences direct how they often take action, whether they are aware of this or not.
