Leadership for the Whole-Hearted
Time & Location
About the Event
“Only when our clever brain and our human heart work together can we reach our full potential” – Jane Goodall
Registration closes 12 August.
Leadership for the Whole-Hearted is designed to help women and men improve their impact, credibility and effectiveness as influencers and role models by consciously harnessing Feminine leadership qualities and integrating them with healthy masculine ones. We cultivate the feminine qualities in a spirit of interdependence and self-expression, not rebellion or exclusion, by working with the fundamental human qualities that underlie all great leadership – Dignity, Presence, Courage and Wisdom. Every competency we value, everything that allows us to learn, develop and evolve, has these fundamentally human qualities, available to all of us at any time, at its core.
Feminine and masculine are not gender specific but are rather complementary ways of being and doing – each of us has feminine and masculine traits, and great leaders like Dr M.L King, Gandhi and Mandela demonstrated the power of what we call “softening your leadership” – cultivating and integrating feminine qualities such as listening, empathy, receptiveness, big picture perspective, relationship and systems focus – and expressing them through Dignity, Presence, Courage and Wisdom.
The residential retreat setting has been chosen specifically to give you the space, time and environment to reflect deeply, think expansively, have open generative conversations, and share experiences with peers in an informal setting. In our overly busy lives, this kind of space and quiet time, just to take stock, think things through, gain awareness, clarity and new perspectives is immensely rare and valuable. The retreat is a chance to take care of your body, mind and spirit to get the most of your learning experience.
This is the first in a series of retreats and can be attended as a stand-alone course.
We draw from different disciplines, including Co-Active leadership, the Leadership Development Framework, systems' work, mindfulness and neuroscience, to offer experiential learning that is accessible and challenging.
What you'll experience on the retreat is:
- Explore with others the impact of your unique way of seeing and making meaning of the world
- Develop your own leadership style through connection with others
- Engage with our unique model and reflective practices to increase emotional intelligence and strengthen relationships
- Cultivate keen present moment awareness of your habitual patterns and how to work with them
- Apply intellectual rigour and systems thinking to make faster, better decisions and craft effective strategy
- One-to-one coaching with Magali and/or Christina
This course will be highly experiential and will also include time for reflection, enjoying the simple pleasures of life and, of course, connection with others. There'll be home-cooked organic food, time for you to relax in the spa and take care of yourself, and the opportunity to join a biodynamic wine-tasting tour. We believe that reconnecting with nature is an essential element and the beautiful Casa Wallace estate in the Monferrato wine region offers the perfect setting.
Prices include the retreat experience led by two professional coach/facilitators, all learning materials, one-on-one coaching, shared accommodation in ensuite twin rooms, all meals and snacks, use of leisure and spa facilities, return minibus transfers from the nearest airport city.
Numbers are strictly limited to 16 participants! Prices are in British Pounds Sterling. Registration closes 12 August.
