The program offers these skills through highly innovative experiential tasks that are specifically designed for leadership training and development.

What is leadership and why is it important? This session looks at the issue of leadership, the qualities of a great leader, and at what the differences are between the qualities of a great leader, and those of a great human being. We also look at what we mean by "Transformational Leadership" – the ability to bring about change which uplifts and benefits humanity, through meeting its needs, and developing its capabilities.
Our feelings, thoughts and actions are constantly at play, interacting and reacting to each other. Why is understanding this important in terms of leadership? What are our own individual default mechanisms? Are they always useful? How can we become aware of them and avoid them if we need to? This session looks at 4 aspects of the human being: Awareness, Feeling, Thinking, Doing, and at how, once we are aware of what is happening in these areas, in ourselves and in others, we can make better choices about what is needed.
Taking Daniel Goleman's work on Emotional Intelligence we incorporate the key concepts into our leadership training by giving simple, practical exercises in mindfulness that helps us develop our awareness so we can be more aware of the needs around us as leaders. Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence framework can be distilled into these four areas:
Self-awareness – the ability to read one's emotions and recognise their impact while using gut feelings to guide decisions.
Self-management – involves controlling one's emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances.
Social awareness – the ability to sense, understand, and react to others' emotions while comprehending social networks.
Relationship management – the ability to inspire, influence, and develop others while managing conflict.
How do we need to "be" in order to "do"? What impact does our energy and that of those around us have on the task at hand? How can we use our energy more effectively to shape the environment we are in, and inspire or focus others?
This session opens up the "doing" side of leadership. When you find yourself in a position of leadership, where should you start? This session introduces a simple framework on what steps we need to take in order to take the lead in any situation.
What impact do our decisions have on those around us? Who do we consider when we make decisions? What happens when we extend that consideration wider? What happens when we don't? We are constantly making decisions. The Decision Tree provides a tool to help us consider how to make those decisions as wisely as possible.
Great communication is a key part of leadership, but it is not just about telling and the grand speeches. This session looks at the 4 key tools of dialogue developed by William Isaacs in his book "Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together": Listening, Respecting, Suspending, Voicing and at how to apply them to resolve conflict through thinking collectively.
We already have at our disposal all the core resources we need to achieve great things. We just need to make a conscious decision to develop and cultivate those resources. The Personal Mastery session looks at what we as individuals need to develop in ourselves in order to meet the needs we see in front of us, and at how we can put in place simple, practical steps to do so. We look at some examples of leaders such as Nelson Madella and how they used the tools of Personal Mastery to be effective leaders.
We look at Daniel Goleman's leadership styles developed at Harvard Business School to develop the tool kit of our participants so they can use their awareness to meet the needs of the situation and use the leadership styles which will bring about the most effective results.
Throughout history and in the world today people have used their leadership skills to make an impact on their community, their nation and their world. The Living Leadership Case Study Day aims to highlight both historical and modern day leaders that have pioneered project that are making a significant difference.
During this workshop we look at the power of sounds as a tool for leaders to bring about change, by listening to the words of some inspiring speeches and their impact. We also have a exercise of singing together, this can be very challenging for some people but as a team we can start to see the importance of working together and the strength that can come from the sound we make in the world as leaders.
This workshop is about creating space for personal reflection, where participants will work individually, in pairs and with their leadership coaches to reflect on what is it that we are really passionate about? How can we connect with that and use it to develop a personal vision for change in the world?
Consolidating all their learning from the program, participants will now look at the tools needed to implement projects or change of behaviours in their own communities and how they can translate this into action, either through individual actions or group projects designed to address one or more of the needs they have identified.
Feedback from previous participants
"The most remarkable leadership programme in 30 years of attending leadership training" Professor Gary Heusel, Character Counts!
We empower people to make a difference in their communities. We specialize in facilitating courses that increase participants' confidence, awareness and effectiveness in leading positive change. We offer a limited number of program and travel bursaries, but do not support people or projects financially beyond this. We offer coaching during and mentoring directly after programmes. We do not provide ongoing counselling.
