Courageous LeaderFrom leaders to warriors
What is it?
Courageous Leader is the next iteration of Conscious Leaders, which was our flagship programme for many years. Taking Conscious Leader principles of self-reflection and experiential learning as its basis, Courageous Leader invites participants to take their leadership to the next level – to step up to the challenges of the modern world and commit to taking bold, values-based action. It is designed to transform the leaders of today into the warriors of tomorrow.
Traditional ‘leadership development’ programmes have reached the limit of their effectiveness for three main reasons: 1) They are focused on what has helped leaders to be effective in the past, failing to acknowledge that what was cutting-edge just a year ago may no longer be relevant to the world of today; 2) They try to squeeze individuals into a narrow template of what a leader should be, rather than allowing their natural leadership qualities to emerge from within; 3) They tend to be academic and narrow in scope, heavy on theory but light on action.
Courageous Leader is a continuously-evolving combination of in-person workshops, one-to-one coaching sessions, and virtual learning, which takes participants on an intensive journey of personal development. In taking them to the edge of what they think they know and can manage, we help them to push beyond their assumed limitations and step actively into their full potential.
Who is it for?
Courageous Leader is aimed at the leaders and key influencers who you want to guide your organisation into the next phase of its development – the high-potential individuals you know can really have an impact, regardless of where they sit in the management hierarchy, and how long they have been in the job. It is for the people you want to be the innovators, disruptors, and thought leaders of the future. Courageous Leader is for those who are willing to challenge groupthink and break new ground; it is for the people who look to predict what is coming and what is wanting to happen, rather than just react to what is happening now or what has long since passed.
Most importantly, Courageous Leader is for the people that you believe can guide your organisation – and our world – in a time of tremendous complexity and volatility. We aim to coach leaders who are willing and able to take the bold action that humanity needs – and to do so with integrity, openness, and heart.
Since it was developed in 2012, over 600 people have graduated from the Conscious Leader and Courageous Leader programmes, and a global movement is emerging. Graduates from our programmes have gone on to do amazing things and make tangible, life-changing impact all over the world.
The next evolutionary leap of leadership
Take a look at Our Philosophy and you’ll see that our firm belief is that a new model of leadership is needed to take the world into the next phase of its evolution – that the time has come to make the leap from leadership to warriorship. Our aim is to be the pioneers of this work, and we are currently in the process of designing programmes to awaken the warrior within.
