Accelerate Your Leadership Development

In today’s organizations, and in society in general, the need is greater than ever for leaders with three essential qualities: the ability to show the way when things are unclear (head), the ability to inspire commitment and courage in their team (heart) and the ability to stand up for what they believe in and make tough decisions (gut). This program offers a unique learning approach that blends reflection, discussion and experience.

  • Gut: Confront adversity, challenge your ideas, defend your convictions and make difficult decisions.

Module 3 – Consolidate your leadership experience

  • Write your leadership story: What is the trajectory that has gotten me where I am today, and what lessons can I draw from it and apply in the future?
  • Listen to my colleagues’ stories and learn from them to gain a full appreciation for the diverse backgrounds, difficulties and rewards involved.
