As the challenges that face leaders change and evolve, so must their impact, influence and presence.

Most leaders know about the cognitive and behavioural aspects of leading, but leaders have more impact when they can access more of themselves than their intellect. Leaders who can ‘be’ themselves with courage, strength and compassion, find deeper reserves of integrity, authenticity and presence, even under high pressure. This means greater impact and influence wherever it matters most.

On this highly practical programme we use several methods to enhance your presence and effectiveness as a leader: mindfulness practice, visioning, somatic techniques, gestalt approaches and equine assisted learning. This different and challenging programme is designed to help you integrate less familiar aspects of your power as a leader with the capabilities you already use. It will help you clarify your view of what drives you and how to stay committed to that under pressure. Building on this you will then explore ways in which you can engage and inspire others more fully in the work you need them to join you in.

Why should you attend this programme?

  • Learn powerful and practical ways to develop presence, trust and respect
  • Learn to adapt your responses under pressure and respond with more clarity and confidence
  • Learn to hold courageous conversations about important issues so you can move forward
  • Embody authenticity, integrity, consistency and confidence

They will increase their impact and influence around what really matters to them so that they can feel inwardly and display outwardly more authenticity and integrity. Leaders will build capacities that increase their collaborative and trust building ability.

A experience of deep learning and self discovery with the focus on commitments post-programme. Not just another learning provider Roffey Park offers something quite different and creates space and the environment for deep learning. Thank you  for a truly amazing and inspirational experience.

Gill Morris, Senior Manager, Talent. Jaguar Land Rover

Bit of a game changer for me at a critical time in my professional and personal life. I feel like a different person – a better more developed version of myself. Thank you. The programme stripped me back to basics and then took me to a point where I can continue my learning – in the right context for me

Donna Buxton, The Health Foundation

It is almost impossible to believe the impact this programme will have on you  unless you  do it. No words, pictures or thoughts can capture it. You owe it to yourself to have a go.

Ian Hughes, Chief Executive, Consumer Intelligence Ltd

The chance to ‘try out’ different leadership positions has made me more flexible in how I lead, in particular I am now more comfortable being directive when it is needed. My projects progress faster now, as I make decisions more quickly and confidently without over-consultation. I also have a clearer vision of how my work adds value to the company and the conviction in my voice when I speak of this is building more support for my projects.
