Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership

What is the ‘Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership’ programme?


Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership is a 5 month programme for people in leadership positions their organisations. Through a series of face-to-face group workshops and online group meetings, we go through a deep process of self-reflection, discovering our life-purpose and how we can become more authentic as leaders.


What will you get out of taking part in this process?


  • Clarity in identifying your life-goals
  • Increased confidence in your skills and where to focus your energy
  • Listening and communication skills
  • Time to reflect on different ways of working

Paul Hargreaves, CEO of Cotswold Fayre Ltd, said…


‘As an experienced leader, I can thoroughly recommend Stepping into your Authentic Leadership for those wanting to develop their leadership teams. Gone are the days when it was acceptable for complete separation between their personal and work life. These days it is only authentic, real leaders that will be followed by people who want to see real change happening in the world and this course will help you and your team become those that will be followed.’


Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership

What is the point of all this? Why does it matter to me and my organisation?


There has never been a more turbulent time to do business than now.

We are in the midst of a Climate Crisis – that fact can no longer be denied. How do we balance our desire to save the planet with the pressures of the marketplace, whilst also ensuring our customers and our staff are happy? It’s a tall order. But we believe it is possible.

Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership is a programme that helps you address the challenges of today’s turbulent world by helping you understand what Authentic Leadership looks like for you.

Do you feel that you are not reaching your full potential and that you could better harmonise your personal and working lives? Are you working for an organisation who is committed to developing its people and believes in developing the human potential of its employees? Would you like to develop a truer sense of what your purpose is in life and how that fits with your organisation’s purpose?

If so and you are a leader in a business, charity, social enterprise or other organisation, you might want to consider joining our next Stepping Into Your Authentic Leadership Programme which runs twice in 2020, starting in February and September.

The objective of this programme is to help leaders like yourself to step more into your authentic selves:

  1. To access more of your human potential.
  2. To be clearer on your mission in life and professionally.
  3. To be more effective in delivering that mission.
  4. To discover what is blocking you from achieving your full potential and delivering your mission.
  5. To feel more fulfilled in all aspects of your life.

How is the programme structured?

This programme will be facilitated by Eudora Pascall and Andrew Thornton of Heart in Business Limited. It will contain five face-to-face workshops, three individual coaching sessions between workshops, and online support during and after the programme.

The programme will be for up to 18 leaders; we encourage multiple people to attend from one organisation, as you will share learnings, get to develop close working relationships and be able to practise the tools you learn together in your organisation.
