New Training Methodology

We remember only about 20% of what we learn27

Conventional leadership training is characterised by the poor retention of newly learned information. We remember only about 50% of what we learn within 21 days and it keeps falling to even out at about 20%27.

Instead of teaching complex leadership schemes that are quickly forgotten, we sharpen inborn leadership skills by enhancing:

  • Inner Soft Skills (intrapersonal intelligence: physical, mental & emotional energy; self-motivation; self-confidence);
  • Outer Soft Skills (interpersonal intelligence: ability to connect with and influence others).

Our workshops unleash and develop Inner and Outer Soft Skills using a simple blend of Modern Science and Ancient Knowledge:

  • Behavioural psychology
  • Whole brain integration
  • Chakra activation
  • Human energy techniques
  • Multiple intelligences
  • Neuroscience
  • Mindfulness
  • Wholesome nutrition
  • Holistic healthcare.

The teacher who is wise does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom but leads you to the threshold of your mind - Kahlil Gibran25

Five Workshops that Nurture Leadership

Nurturing companywide leadership produces Learning Organisations

Our workshops empower participants to self-learn new things through intrinsic motivation. These use human energy techniques combined with behavioural psychology and neuroscience to remove mental roadblocks to learning by boosting mental, emotional and physical energy28.

Five 1-day workshops spread over five weeks energise, empower and engage executives at all levels to become effective leaders. These sharpen the skills they need to lead their teams and organisations to higher levels of success under VUCA33 conditions.

These five experiential workshops provide the five steppingstones to dramatically higher leadership effectiveness. They help develop your next generation of leaders who can create the future of your organisation while consolidating present successes.
