‘Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today, developing an authentic leadership style is crucial if we want to inspire commitment and get results. In this session, we’ll reflect on what makes a good leader. This will involve considering our strengths, weaknesses and blind spots, as well as addressing key leadership challenges: from creating a compelling vision to empowering others.

In this two-hour session, we will:

  • Discuss the overall nature of leadership and how it has changed through history
  • Take a realistic look at some of the trials of leadership, and how to tackle them
  • Develop a more compassionate approach to ourselves to improve our relationships with others
  • Learn to communicate clear purpose to clients and colleagues
  • Build a more productive workforce by demonstrating trust in employees or subordinates

The Mission of the School of Life for Business is to Develop Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace People are the most expensive, complex, and valuable asset of any company. But all too often, they are the least understood. At The School of Life, we believe that emotional maturity is the key to better employee performance and engagement. Our service is built on years of experience working with individuals and organisations to develop emotional intelligence. We work with businesses to help employees function better together – to form more engaged teams, be more productive, dynamic, and work together in more innovative and entrepreneurial ways. Our Business program is built around 20 core emotional skills that we believe each employee needs to learn to contribute and thrive in the workplace. For each skill we provide a tailored two hour workshop delivered by our world class faculty. We provide suggested learning-journeys or can tailor one for you with your organization’s particular needs in mind. Our workshops bring about true changes in behavior, helping employees to overcome hurdles and approach tasks with greater focus, confidence and maturity. The material draws on case studies from history, philosophy and culture and is psychologically rich, thought-provoking and enjoyable.
