As a leader in disruptive times

you are aware that any routine thinking – even if rooted in past success – is a barrier to access your full potential. For you, continuous self-renewal is imperative.

We strongly believe that in these times of enormous business opportunities and challenges great leaders need a strong inner compass to adapt quickly. These times call for a new quality of leaders: The Conscious Leader – leaders who embody a strong professional will and a personal humbleness, willing to transform themselves in order to transform their teams and their organizations.

Conscious Leaders are true game changers at the top through their unique blend of 3 Cs: Connectedness, Consciousness and Contribution. They connect to their individual purpose to build strength from within. They are conscious about themselves, their own strengths and limiting patterns, and the complex dynamics in the world around them. And they know how to unfold their and others` full contribution potential.

EXPLORE is your opportunity to start transforming yourself. It is unique, selective, confidential and by application only. We help you answering the question: “How can I grow into a Conscious Leader?”

You and your peer group

You are an experienced leader with an impressive track record. And yet, you know that our disruptive times challenge you to be highly adaptive and willing to continuously transform yourself. For you, staying ahead of the challenge means staying curious, courageous and committed to personal growth.

Leading requires mental agility. Aspiring to be the best version of yourself, you are poised to make the leap to be a Conscious Leader, strongly connected to your individual purpose. You have a minimum of 5 years leadership experience. And – most important – you have the personal curiosity, openness and will to self-reflect, experiment – and learn.

You will join a group of peers with similar experiences. They share your aspirations and will support you to accelerate your learning process – as you will support theirs. Your peer group will be limited to 6-8 participants.

Programme structure

Grow yourself by coaching Future Leaders in Kenya

Prior to the start, you will prepare with readings and questions for self-reflection. Thus, you will start reflecting your strengths, blind spots and untapped potentials.

Module 1, the 2-day Intake right before the start of the 5-day programme, triggers your introspection and learning. The dynamic learning setting with inputs, individual + small group reflection, 1:1 coaching serves to understand your individual purpose, root cause motivations, and your leadership footprint. The learning setting enables you to safely articulate your thoughts and take-aways. Your coach will support you deepening your learnings and help you prepare for your “Leader as a coach” role in Kenya.  

Module 2, the 5-day “Lead Your Self” Academy in Nairobi in spring 2022, with Kenyan talents, is invigorating and expands your self-awareness and consciousness. The “Leader as a coach” role will get you out of your comfort zone: You teach what you have learned in Module 1 and provide small group and individual coaching for future leaders in Kenya. While serving for meaningful impact, you continuously immerse into your own personal and professional development journey.

We strongly believe that times of disruption call for the Conscious Leader

Leaders who are true game changers at the top display a unique blend of  strengthened awareness:
They are aware of their individual purpose to build strength from within. They are aware of their self, their own strengths and limiting patterns. They are aware of the complex social dynamics in the world around them. And they are aware of the demanding leadership context they want to contribute.
