(updated 7 October 2014)

Natural Leaders NOW

London, 22-23 November 2014

The root word of ‘leadership’ is ‘leith’ which means to cross the threshold, to let go of old ways, mind-sets and logic in order to embrace the new. Leadership is, first and foremost, an attitude to life.

A unique and empowering blend of conference and interactive workshops led by inspiring international speakers and teachers (including Mac Macartney, Scilla Elworthy, Jamie Catto).

“I am certain that a different future for all of humanity is possible, if humans wake up. Waking up starts with you and me. It means increasing our knowledge of ourselves, using reflection, mindfulness and inner work. In half a century of work in the world, the most important lesson I learned from Nelson Mandela and from The Elders is that inner work is a pre-requisite for outer effectiveness.” Scilla Elworthy

The Extraordinary Leadership Journey

The Extraordinary Leadership Journey provides a unique leadership experience. You will spend a week in a rural Kenyan school with a small group of fellow leaders.

“Stripped of your status, your power, the hierarchical deference of those in your organisation, your cultural reference points, your emotional shields and physical home comforts, what kind of a leader will you be then? As a successful leader you are ready for the next step: You know that as you develop yourself, organisational transformation follows. But your development is constrained by your environment – staying in the same place, experiencing the same things … Access new dimensions of yourself and your leadership…”
