Enlightened Leadership Programme - Individual

Genuinely You - Enlightened Leadership Programme

Jane is in her first leadership role. She thought she would love it; it is what she has worked so hard for – this promotion was meant to be her greatest achievement. But the day to day reality of leading her team isn’t feeling like that. In fact, Jane is beginning to wonder how she can reconcile what she feels is important in life with how her employer expects her to behave. Jane is beginning to think that she has to choose between sacrificing herself and keeping the job or being true to her values and losing it. How did it get like this? Does it always have to feel like this?

Is this you?

Do you feel that being a leader means packing away your personal values? Do you feel that you’re acting out a leadership role that isn’t you, that you’re going to be ‘found-out’ as the imposter that you secretly believe yourself to be, or that you have to steel yourself for the working day ahead? Do you feel deskilled, out of your depth or under siege?

It doesn’t have to be like that!

Leadership can be one of the most enlightening and positive experiences in life! Leadership can see you achieve wonderful things together with your colleagues. Leadership performed well can definitely improve the quality of everyone’s life.

Many leadership training courses miss the most fundamental foundation stones of how to become a great leader – they forget that great leaders bring themselves wholly and fully to the role. The statistics on the long-term effect of leadership courses demonstrate the inherent weakness – only a tiny proportion (less than 10%) of the new-learning is still being acted upon six months afterwards.

We believe that great leaders do not separate themselves from their leadership. We believe great leaders are enlightened to the value that being their genuine best selves at all times – not just at home – brings with it the ability to inspire and lead others. We believe that great leaders are consciously awake to the need to be the best version of themselves – their highest selves.

Do you feel that way too?

If you do, then we think that the Genuinely You Enlightened Leadership Programme may well be the perfect fit for you.

The Enlightened Leadership Programme challenges participants to look deeply into their own values, fears and insecurities, in order to be guided carefully and compassionately towards a greater understanding of their strengths and talents. It is this process that we believe produces leaders who feel able to embody the learning that this programme delivers. It is this ‘alchemical’ process that enables our participants to bring fairness, strength and compassion to their daily work-leadership roles, and to do it with a sense of ease and grace.

We believe It is only by being our whole selves that we can find our true power and apply this with elegance and authority to improve not only our own lives but also that of our family, friends, team, colleagues and neighbours, indeed of humanity at large.

The Genuinely You Enlightened Leadership Programme has been designed specifically to actively support participants through this challenging introspection and transformation. All participants are assigned their own personal leadership-facilitator. All participants have access to Genuinely You’s founder and CEO, Gina Gardiner, and also to other participants via the twice monthly interactive group coaching sessions and through the private Face Book support group.

This is a highly challenging leadership course that will test leadership preconceptions and ‘old-ways’ of thinking. It will be intensive at times. But, if you believe, like we do, that leadership should not be a sacrificial act of one’s personal values in order to be a successful leader, or even to remain within the role, then we think you will be prepared to commit to the deep personal development and growth that this course will require of you.

What the Enlightened Leadership Course Includes:

Course Length = 10 months

  • Weekly Time Commitment = likely to be 2-3 hours per week

This course is for you if:

  • You are about to step up into a leadership role for the first time and you want to get it right from the very beginning
  • You are in a position of leadership already but are tiring of the old ‘tricksy’ management techniques and being ‘sold’ the latest shortcut to motivate and manage your team.
  • You want to feel a greater ease and peace about the challenges and behaviours that your working-hours require of you and also achieve a happier and more fulfilling sense of life in general.
  • You’d like to lead with confidence and make a positive difference

This course is not for you if:

  • You are happy for things to stay the same
  • You are not committed to taking ownership of your role as leader
  • If you are not prepared to take consistent action
  • You are put off by having to consider yourself honestly – weaknesses and faults included – deeply and with vulnerability
  • You are unwilling to share your thoughts, challenges and wins with others
  • You wish to keep your working life separate from what you think of as your ‘personal’ life
  • You are unwilling to take responsibility for your choices
  • You see yourself as a victim

If this course still feels like the right fit for you, then we can discuss it together – to find out if we both feel that and answer any questions that you may have.
