Authentic Leadership

Leading authentically

Leadership style is personal, and authenticity is fundamental to your success. This three day Authentic Leadership workshop focuses on who the leader is, rather than what the leader needs to do.

We all have our own leadership style, we lead ourselves and we lead others, at home and in the workplace.

This facilitated workshop uses the MyersBriggs Type Indicator psychometric
assessment and Everything DiSC 363 Leader (360 degree review process) to take the leader on the ultimate journey of selfawareness.

Leaders discover how they communicate effectively to the different personality types on their teams, reflect on their personal brand, understand their strengths and opportunities for development and create their personal plan for progress. This workshop offers leaders an insight into why people behave as they do and the impact that this has on themselves, others and their results.
