Leading with Active Hope Event: Leading with Purpose in a Volatile WorldTuesday 23rd September 2014
10:30am - 16:00pm BST at Barrow Castle, Bath
Facilitators: Fiona Ellis and Clare Moody
We are facing as leaders the challenge of leading in an age of disruption: financial models being mistrusted, climate chaos, resource scarcity and disconnection in an increasingly busy global world. At the same time, new ways of leading and organising are being developed, which will help us lead into an emerging future.
In a beautiful natural setting, we offer a day to experience and explore these questions:
• How can we be more connected and present as leaders?
• How can we lead from our own purpose and intrinsic values?
• How can we explore the dilemmas and choices we make as leaders every day?
Join us and explore, using an 'Active Hope' process, how we connect to each other and our own purpose.

Breakfast Master Class: Talent Leadership DevelopmentTuesday 14th October 2014
MWB, Liverpool Street, London
Developing Leadership Talent: What really works?
You are invited to a roundtable discussion on the challenges and different approaches to developing talented leaders.
We will be conducting a survey prior to the event which we can share results of on the day and also be sharing our own experience of developing Talent leaders in corporate organisations internationally.
Do you recognise these challenges/questions?
Most organisations have a robust talent management process, which identifies talent and manages the talent pipeline, and as a result make choices on how to develop their talent. We want to highlight some of the choice points and best practice around designing and delivering talent development processes, including such things as:
- Leadership development in service of what? – How can this be more than a programme? Can it be a cultural intervention?
- Leaders learn from experience, what blended combination of 70:20:10 really works?
- How can we best develop self-awareness and encourage authentic expression of who I am as a leader?
- How do you successfully sustain peer learning over time?
- Who is selected and how? Mixing levels of leaders – how can the executives and upcoming talent learn together?
- Over what time frame do talent leadership programmes have most effect?
- How can project based learning add real value? What other approaches work well?

Transformational Coaching WorkshopWednesday 26th November 2014
Course Leaders: Professor Peter Hawkins and Nick Smith
Transformational Coaching enables coachees to create fundamental shifts in the way they work, through transforming their way of thinking, feeling and behaving in relation to others. It is our contention that this is achieved through focusing on the shift that needs to happen live in the room, so that a sustained change takes place, beyond the coaching session.
This two-day workshop offers a chance for participants to work on developing these skills and exploring how this way of coaching might be useful in their current coaching practice. The workshop provides an invaluable opportunity for experienced coaches to increase the impact of their coaching.
