Executive Leaders

Computer Class

Dates and Times
7 July 2021

Two-hour Masterclass (10:00 - 12:00)


Do you as a senior or executive leader at times feel that the uncertainty in the organisational world of today can squeeze the self out of the self?

Authentic Leadership, a leadership by presence and beyond position, can be defined as being true to self, and true to one’s leadership purpose, with a strong moral underpinning, for the greater good of all that we serve. To develop such leadership, both individually and collectively, we need to be self-aware, both of who we are and how we have become so, in order to understand the internal compass that drives us, consciously or unconsciously.  We need to understand how that internal compass can be strengthened to support us in who we need to be as senior or executive Authentic Leaders.  Once self-aware, a strong and moral internal compass allows us to self-regulate our decisions and behaviours so that we can steer True North, in this case during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, and through doing so, influence the systems we form part of, to do the same. 

This is beautifully illustrated in a quote ‘…And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same’ from Marianne Williamson in her poem ‘A return to love. This is how we can shift, as Otto Scharmer calls it, from ego- to eco-centric. 

In this two-hour Masterclass you will get an understanding of why the need for Authentic Leadership, what it is, and how sustainable Authentic Leadership Effectiveness can be developed in senior or executive leaders.  This virtual or face-to-face Masterclass is a very effective way to gauge the need and appetite for the enhancement of senior or executive leadership effectiveness in any organisation.

Whether facilitated virtually or face-to-face, these Masterclasses are very interactive. We explore together what the challenges that senior or executive organisational leaders face, what AL means, and how it can enhance leadership effectiveness. We learn what the process of enhancing authentic leadership involves, through the lens of self-leadership, followed by people- and organisational leadership. We explore how our internal compasses and effectiveness charters can be built, against which we can self-regulate ourselves in order to keep ‘True North’; not only in calm waters but also in stormy weather. We further explore the effect of AL on trust in self, trust between self and others, and team leadership effectiveness.
