Now more than ever it is the time to reinvent your leadership!

When it comes to your leadership, do you feel:

  • Your leadership is facing a lot of resistance at work?
  • You are powerless to be the agent of change or the leader you want to be?
  • You experience impostor syndrome each time you want to step up and act as a leader with your team, so instead you hold yourself back and feel increasingly frustrated or disengaged?
  • Your leadership style reached a plateau, and you are looking for how you can take it to another level and create more engagement with your team?
  • You are overwhelmed in a workplace that keeps you running at a crazy pace and where you lack the time to be the more conscious and intentional leader you would like to be?

Imagine completely transforming your leadership over the course of ten weeks and obtaining these powerful outcomes as you are progressing through the program as well as in the weeks and months following it :

  • Expand your self-awareness and widen the range of what you notice about yourself. Start seeing your interactions with your colleagues differently.
  • Feel more empowered and legitimate to step up and be the leader you know you can be with your team.
  • Begin noticing the times when you are holding back your leadership and be able to choose to be a leader instead of holding back in these situations.
  • Have more productive and less frustrating interactions with members of your team by having a clear intention before taking actions or entering conversations with them.
  • Increase your influence as well as your confidence working with your team by noticing the impact of your words, actions and beliefs on your colleagues and choosing to do things differently.
“I recommend this event without any hesitation. I would tell people to trust the process and to dare to do it.”

What we’ve found is that there are many dormant leaders in organizations all over the world. Some of them have strong leadership skills and drive in their personal lives but feel they cannot be leaders at work because they do not have the right title for their jobs.

Others have the right title but feel discouraged and frustrated working with their teams so now, they are reluctant to step up and take ownership of their leadership role.

The reality is that nothing will change for you as a dormant leader until you take some time to take a closer look at yourself to discover how you are creating some of this through your own actions, behaviours and limiting beliefs. Nothing will change until you get clarity on your core values and what your leadership is all about.

Our coaching programs create powerful and safe spaces to empower you once again and awaken your willingness to step up and be the leader you want to be.

Get a taste of what this experience is all about.
