The Self- Directed Leader


Two Day Programme

Self-Leadership, Self-Awareness, Self-Development

The Self-Directed Leader Programme


Leadership and self-leadership are universally important throughout all parts of the organisation and for all staff members. The Self-Directed Leader Programme recognises that leadership is for everyone, and thus has been designed for all - from managers, leaders, mentors and influencers, to team members and all staff at every level of the organisation. The focus of this programme is self-development, self-awareness and self-leadership.  The programme develops resilience, self-management and motivation of individual participants, and helps individuals harness their own leadership potential and enhance these in their interactions with others.  

While the focus is on the self, the programme is also perfectly suited to be delivered to work teams or to teams and groups who regularly interact and collaborate as a team development programme.  Through a supportive group environment, it brings the team or group together, and develops an energised, motivated and positive culture in teams and organisations.

The underlying philosophy is that the understanding that self-awareness is the cornerstone of self-development.  Through self-awareness, we can develop our leadership, communication, conflict management, motivation and emotional intelligence skills.  Undertaking this process in a team environment enables team members to support each other in this activity, and also increases team members' own awareness and understanding of each other.

This programme has been developed to create a highly collaborative and exploratory environment for participants which allows individuals and teams to explore new perspectives and concepts in a supportive manner. The emphasis is on raising self awareness and enabling self development through self reflection, collaboration and sharing ideas.  

Session topics include:

  • Self-awareness and self-leadership

  • Team work

  • Managing upwards, laterally and downwards

  • Harnessing conflict

  • Beyond diversity

  • Self-leadership and difficult decisions

  • Communication and constructive feedback
