  • An improved understanding of how your behaviour impacts on others
  • A better ability to empathise and understand why others behave as they do
  • An understanding of how to manage yourself and others under pressure
  • Increased emotional intelligence, focus and direction
  • An increased ability to develop and support others.
Because of the connections that develop during this programme past participants have often created an on going professional peer group that continues to meet once or twice a year.


  • Learn how to use your own unique story and life experience to inspire your leadership
  • Explore deep-seated attitudes and beliefs to give you insights to build on your strengths, shift unhelpful attitudes and create more choice in how you behave
  • Use depth psychology, group participation, feedback and individual development time to create a lasting impact both in and outside of the work environment.


  • Senior executives and directors who want to become better at using themselves as an instrument to communicate and inspire
  • Those who recognise blind spots that may hold them back
  • Executives who need to become better at taking people with them
  • Those who feel at a crossroads within their career
  • Highflyers who need to achieve a healthier work life balance.
