Transformational leadership can change lives. Literally. Consistently, research points out that the impact leaders have, for better or worse, on each of their team members’ emotional wellbeing and professional performance is significantly larger that that of any other colleague. Organisation culture studies show that up to 80% of culture is driven by leaders’ personal styles. Therefore, the stakes for growing conscious, wise, emotionally intelligent leaders are high.

This is true both for profit and non-profit organisations, for companies large and small, for social enterprises as well as for commercially oriented ones. When I, together with my friend, Kate Peardon, created the Transformational Leadership Program, we made it our mission to enable leaders from all kinds of organisations to enter a process of learning and deep personal introspection.

The program fuses the rigour of a scientific framework with inspiring and profound personal experiences. It draws on the latest research in neuroscience, applied positive psychology and leadership, applying these to valuable tools such as Appreciative Inquiry, open dialogue and Coaching.

The program unfolds over the course of 5 months, consisting of three intensive 5 day modules in Brisbane, Australia and projects in between. All details can be found on the program website:
