Managing women or men? Managing a team? Or your children? Managing ringleaders or doubters? Managing a volunteer organisation, commercial business, or civil servants?
A good leader leads by example. My questions is: what kind of example do you set?
How do you manage yourself? How conscious are you of doing so? Which questions do you ask yourself concerning your leadership? And maybe even more importantly: which do you not ask?
‘You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself”. – Harry Firestone
Do you manage yourself effectively?
Are you clear and focused? Strong and active? Do you work methodically yet flexibly? Can you stay on task? Do you not secretly postpone discomfiting issues?
Can you manage pressure in such a way that stress does not strike? Are you working on continuous self-improvement, both privately and professionally? Do you not only listen to your brain but also to your heart? Or are you like so many other people? If so, ten to one that you are not answering ‘yes!!!’ to all of these questions. Leadership training will change that.

Training personal leadership
We explore what drives you. We investigate your obstructions. We removed blockages in your thought patterns. You gain self-insight. You reveal your authentic you. You define your strength. You create focus.
You develop your unique and congruent style of personal leadership. I call it your ‘internal leadership’. Now you have the perfect basis from which to lead others.
‘The inward journey is about finding your own fullness, something that no one else can take away.’ –
Effectively leading others
Leaders create change. How? Leadership means influencing others through communication. I call it ‘external leadership’. But before you can influence someone, you have to know what influences him or her.
And for that, you must know how to listen. With all your senses. This requires an insight into styles of communication. It requires an interest in and understanding of (and for!) a wide range of personalities. Without preconceptions.
Good leaders communicate transparently, they do not only lead but also support, invest in the permanent growth of their employees, show their appreciation and gratitude, and are interested in their personal circumstances.
Within this framework, we will find your optimum way of communicating. We then focus that on the various personality types and genders. We are modelling your external leadership.
‘The new model of leadership really is all about mastering the skills people in the past judged as soft.’ –
