One day away from transforming your leadership
The Authentic Leader, a one-day workshop for leaders who want to bring the seven elements of authenticity into their everyday leadership. The workshop is a timely WOF on your leadership compass - a chance to reflect on how to make deeper connections with people.
Throughout the day, participants are engaged in group interactions, open dialogue, and personal reflection. You will leave with practical tools to help you build on your insights from the day. And before you leave, you will write a letter to yourself -- and we'll mail it to you in six months. Take the day to re-charge your sense of purpose. You owe it to yourself. And it will make a difference to others.Book your seat

Very thought provoking! It made me look at the way I interact with others – both at work and at home. Please leave any preconceptions about “another” management course. Come, be present, and be in control of your development as a leader.
Go with an open mind. Leave perceptions and habits at the door. This course gives tools not only to help you get the best from your team, but also from yourself. Learning from this is valuable in every aspect of life!
The workshop encourages you to open your mind, and challenges you to think about yourself as a person and a leader. It’s not just a lecture, it’s an interactive experience!
TAL was a very thought-provoking course which came at a time when I was questioning my abilities as a leader. Great timing. I left with new insights and renewed confidence.
This is a thought-provoking course that encourages self-reflection – a real look at who you are. It provides an understanding of authenticity as a leader, and arms you with useful tools which you can take back into the workplace.
The course spoke to both my personal and professional challenges, insights, and aspirations. It provided both frameworks to evaluate behaviour and also very practical activities to drive change. Would highly recommend it.
This is a valuable day of self-reflection and insight. What this day really brought home is how we are as a leader is critical to our effectiveness. This course helps us get closer to our authenticity so we can truly connect.
