Leadership & Influence

“Be the change that you want to see in the world” – Gandhi

We are all leaders at different times, when we walk our talk and influence others.  How you are as a leader is just as important as what you do. A large part of your influence is connected to your sense of presence and whether others see the leader in you. This course will make a significant difference to your ability to lead and influence with integrity.

It will contribute significantly to your inner and outer confidence. You will know how to make and impact and raise your profile. You’ll feel more comfortable in your skin and be more present in the moment and able to manage your state. You will be able to negotiate and network more successfully and sell yourself and what you have to offer more effectively. You will understand more about systems thinking.

When you believe in yourself and know how to lead yourself with confidence, other people are motivated by your very presence, and leading, managing, team-working and negotiating all become much more natural and effortless.

What will you learn?

  • You will discover that inner confidence, often called ‘presence’ or ‘charisma’.
  • You will come across all of a piece. People trust and respect you.
  • People will see your leadership qualities, and you will have greater positive influence on people.
  • You will learn how to manage your own state and motivate yourself.
  • You will get less stressed and create a good creative working atmosphere around you.
  • People will be inspired to follow your lead. You will foster a great sense of good will and motivation.

  • You will understand yourself better: you will ‘make more sense’.
  • You will align your personal values so that you act with authority and integrity.
