A LIFETIME OF ENLIGHTENED LEADERSHIP

86% OF CEOs BELIEVE THEIR LEADERS LACK THE SKILLS TO MEET CURRENT AND
EMERGING BUSINESS NEEDS*
In this time of constant change and uncertainty, your leadership success depends on the confidence and stability of your inner leader. Skilful leaders turn disruption to their advantage. They create clarity, trust and engagement, which generates momentum and accelerates productivity.

And yet many well-established leadership approaches fail to equip leaders with these skills. They are not pragmatic enough to enable leaders to succeed day-to-day at the messy interface between business and relationships.

EVOLVING LEADERSHIP fixes this. It is an advanced leadership development programme that works from the inside out. Grounded in the principle that to lead others well you must first know and master yourself, it gives you a solid platform for success and continuing growth.

Are you ready to unleash youR inner leader?

You are in a responsible leadership position in any enterprise, or in transition: C-level executive or partner in a large or medium size company, board member, senior executive in a not-for-profit or public organisation, entrepreneur or owner-manager.

You may be looking for your next big thing and seeking to prepare yourself or deepen your skills. You may want to excel in your current role and need help to make the necessary changes. You may be highly successful but still feel pulled in every direction and need to sharpen your ability to focus. Whatever your circumstances, you are looking for a truly effective, sustainable way to move forward.

On this unique programme you tap into the wisdom of world-class coach-mentors, who have a rare combination of mindfulness and leadership experience of their own.

With the skills that you learn, 

– you create clarity and a reassuring space
– you are resilient and confident
– you are able to respond innovatively to any challenge or opportunity
– you combine introspection and strategic leadership
– you enable sustained wellbeing for yourself and others
– you make an immediate difference to the productiveness of your organisation
– you are more you, with skill

“I have significantly increased my personal impact and influence at every level: on the board, the shareholders and my own teams. This was a breakthrough which I had not achieved from other programmes.”

Elena Grishina, CFO, Renaissance Capital

“As a leader of global teams and relationships, I found the experience highly relevant and applicable to the constant challenges of working in a VUCA world. I left a more focused, productive, resilient leader. I anticipate a clear and immediate return on my investment – from deeper and more ‘true’ client relationships to more efficient use of mine and my team’s efforts.”

Lesley Abery, Group Director, Mercuri Urval

Personalised Learning

Over a nine-month period you experience a personalised, part-time leadership programme, which enables you progessively to apply your learning in your day-to-day work. You clarify and embody your leadership mindset – the knowledge, beliefs, thoughts, emotions and behaviours that govern how you are and the impact you have on others.

You learn in a group of eight like-minded peers both remotely and face-to-face at our inspiring leadership development centre in the French Alps. You have the space you need to consolidate and embed new skills on a continuing basis.

The core elements of the programme are three mindfulness-based residential retreats, which include group work, one-to-one coaching and outdoor learning. Learning is reinforced and extended by monthly online individual coaching and group learning sessions.

Unique Learning Environment

Our peaceful, luxury leadership development centre and its stunning alpine location invigorate and challenge you. In connecting with nature you gain perspective and reconnect with what really matters in your life and work. The changing seasons deepen your sense of transformation.

A place like this opens your mind. Speaking as an entrepreneur who lives in a big city, you can’t underestimate the value of coming here. The environment that they’ve created is so peaceful and yet there’s such a buzz – ideas and solutions just pop into your mind. It’s wonderful.”
