• Charting a course in the emerging new world

    For organisations, networks, leaders, innovators and YOU

  • Visionary Leader's Journey

    A transformation from the inside --> out

     

    An essential look at fulflling your life's purpose. A retreat style programme which supports you to step outside the fast motion of your day-to-day activity and the year-to-year movement of your life.

     

    It gives you space and time to observe yourself, to gain perspective, to look back, to look forward, to illuminate and release limiting patterns, to listen for guidance and craft new dreams, visions and destinations.

     

    It is an opportunity to see and choose what really matters to you, to connect with your life purpose and re-ignite a path that is guided by your highest truths and potentials. Several hundred people have participated in this life changing journey.

  • Create Teams and Community

    Engaging the power of complexity - being and acting as One

    Build a High Performing Team

    A compact development process to initiate and enhance teamwork

    Teamwork happens when a small group of people come together with the intention of creating or changing reality. If they can establish a state of mutual understanding, honourable communication and trust they can ignite a powerful "we-spirit". As they take greater responsibility for their impact, the presence and capability of their teamwork can become exceptional.

    Creating a Community of Leaders

    A programme for large, multi-functional teams

    When a team or group becomes large, teamwork becomes difficult and a wider, more complex community of leaders can be created. Becoming more powerful than a team as they expand the depth, reach and value of the dreams and visions they dare to engage with.
