All organisations need leaders that can succeed in our ever faster changing world. This programme equips leaders and their organisations to thrive in a multi-generational, globalised, AI enhanced, ethically sensitive, 'VUCA world’.
The world is at a tipping point; it is changing faster and more unpredictably. Society, technology and the climate are changing at unprecedented levels. Successful leaders recognise that leadership has moved on from being authoritative, hierarchical and pace-setting to becoming a distributed leadership underpinned by an ethical, caring, sustainable and performance enhancing culture. Only Transpersonal Leaders who are both emotionally intelligent and lead beyond their ego can consistently embrace, communicate and enaction these characteristics.
How will the programme benefit you and your organisation?
It enables you and your organisation to become more productive, agile and sustainable through empowering employees and engaging fully with all stakeholders. It helps you attract the best people and operate for the greater good!
The programme is based on the Transpersonal Leadership development journey described in our acclaimed book1. It is specifically tailored for small cohorts of leaders (max 6) who want to develop their skills and behaviours:
The intermediate journey (Emotionally Intelligent Leadership) is suitable for any executive wishing to improve their leadership competence. It is completed in six, remote three-hour cohort video-conference sessions plus one individual 2 hour LEIPA2 feedback session.
The follow-on advanced journey (Beyond the Ego Leadership) is completed in six, remote three-hour cohort video-conference sessions. This stage is particularly suitable for CEOs, executives who have been newly promoted to senior positions and for other high potential executives being groomed for senior roles.
Between the remote video-conference sessions, individuals will complete bite-sized online learning, reading specific book1 chapters, confidential self-assessments, performance accelerator tools and questionnaires. Each cohort member will also receive appropriate levels of 1:1 coaching to enable conversations in confidence.
Cohort Video-conference sessions are organised into three main sections. First to discuss and reflect on the work-based practice and learning actioned from the previous session. Second, to review the learning from the various online exercises and to identify how it applies to the individual and the team, especially in the workplace, and what actions need to be taken. Third, it is an opportunity to discuss specific issues effecting an individual or the team that can be solved through action-learning or team coaching of the cohort.
