Take a fresh approach to leadership development.
Release authenticity and leadership impact.

Every organisation has a wealth of untapped leadership potential

The full expression of people’s talents remains untapped because the increasing complexity and pace of organisational life triggers habitual and reactive leadership behaviours.  Running faster is no longer enough for success.

Honing mental capacity is key to releasing leadership potential

The key development challenge, for executives and managers, is to expand their mental and emotional capacity; to see challenges from a larger perspective and to build their emotional resilience to be more consciously agile, creative and collaborative.

Our approach integrates three essential domains of skillful leadership

Our coaching and leadership programmes integrate development across three domains: awareness, leadership and communication, and translate profound shifts in personal insight into specific and practical changes in leadership behaviour.

Our Approach:

Our coaching and leadership programmes integrate development across three domains: Awareness, for deepening presence and self-management, Leadership, for developing key leadership competencies, and Communication, for translating wise intentions into collaborative action.

Our coaching and development programmes draw flexibly on each of these domains, depending on the specific development goals. This integrated approach supports profound shifts in mental and emotional capacity, and enables the translation of intrinsic talents into skillful, emotionally-intelligent leadership.

Benefits of our Approach:

  • Increased self-awareness, presence and resilience

Organisational Development

culture review

Assessing the culture of an organisation through structured interviews and questionnaires, providing insight into the underlying or unspoken assumptions that shape interactions between organisational levels, functions, stakeholders and clients.
