Expanding Leadership

This course takes the participants through a journey of exploration and self-discovery to help them develop their ability to lead and influence others

Expanding Leadership

Leadership is all about being able to lead others in the quest for a vision or the achievement of something. Thousands of organisations want to recruit and develop leaders because they are seen as the ‘Holy Grail’ of personal, organisational and business success. However, achieving a vision through leading people is just the outcome or result of a leadership process; the actual Leadership journey is where the work and the magic happens and it is about managing peoples’ emotions, motivating them, keeping them delivering the best and navigating uncertain waters that emerge as the result of personality clashes, team dynamics, politics and unexpected events. This is the complexity of Leadership.

The other challenge in the Leadership Development journey comes from the fact that learning to manage our own emotions (and the emotions of others) is an art and not just a ‘one-size fits all’ or an ‘easy-to-follow’ recipe. Leadership is at the heart of human psychology and it is at the junction of enquiry, the development of new habits and the creation of new behavioural patterns. This is why our programme ‘Expanding Leadership’ is structured in two stages, the inner journey and the journey with others.

Expanding Leadership

Our Approach

Expanding Leadership is built upon the premise that we cannot lead and manage others if we cannot manage ourselves. This is why we begin with expanding the participants’ understanding of themselves and by increasing their self-awareness. Through this journey we explore the participants’ drivers, motivations, purpose, strengths, triggers, management style and help them gain more confidence, self-belief and clarity. By expanding the participants’ knowledge and understanding of themselves, we are expanding their capabilities and their ability to recognise and seize the opportunities that they encounter.

Once this is established, we work on expanding their ability to lead, engage and motivate others as well as improving their grasp of the process of Leadership. We finish the programme by expanding their understanding of how they can create an ‘expanding ripple effect’ in the organisations as well as society in general through the use of technology and social influence.
