Authentic Leadership

Performance, presence and contribution


As businesses become more conscious of their potential to positively impact society, a new leadership paradigm is emerging. It challenges leaders to be values-driven and committed to integrity, trust and genuine caring.

This highly interactive workshop navigates the fundamentals of being an authentic leader.

Concrete examples, case studies, and research illustrate the power of this new way of leading. Interactive exercises will help you determine your leadership level and understand potential set-backs. This will then feed into developing a plan to increase your levels of self-mastery and self-awareness, and your overall levels of contribution/fulfilment.
