Our organisations and societies face an unparalleled pace of change, new and complex challenges, and far reaching opportunities. More than at any time in our human history, we need leadership; emotionally intelligent men and women who are courageous, authentic and visionary, who can inspire those around them and transform their teams, and organisations. 

It has been my privilege during my life to work with many different people, from all walks of life and from all across the globe, executive boards of multi-national companies to tribal leaders in developing countries. My journeys have convinced me of several fundamental truths:

  • Leaders are made not born
  • Everyone has a leadership potential but most of us are either unaware of this potential, are given little opportunity to develop it or choose not to
  • Leadership is intensely personal – it starts with you
  • Leadership is learnt by being a leader and then from learning from these experiences; both are essential but the former is often given more importance than the latter
  • Aristotle was right when he said that the foremost virtue was courage
  • Being an inspiring leader requires you to align your mind, body and spirit behind your vision, and purpose – doing this can have a transformational effect on those around you
  • Leaders create the conditions where other people can be successful; inspiring leaders create the conditions where people can deliver results that they did not think possible, and enjoy doing it
  • Winston Churchill was right when he said that the path of leadership was a choice, not a position, and that the only people who could call you a leader were your followers
  • Leaders make the difference to teams, organisations and societies – it is that simple. The difference can be between success and failure, profit and loss, progress or retreat.
  • Developing your leadership potential is accelerated, more effective and takes less effort with good quality leadership training, coaching and role models

We use individual and team coaching, leadership workshops and development centres, and strategic consulting to create a leadership culture. In addition we also specialise in adventure and wilderness leadership programmes which offer a unique, leading edge opportunity to accelerate leadership development even further.

"Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you."

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)
