The spirit of leading – the art of leadership
3rd edition of the english workshop; the spirit of leadership in action – transformative leadership. This workshop and trainingseries explores leadership as an art form; a way that involves us as individuals and as a community in growth. For example, the growth you need to take on a leading role within your current network or work. But also the growth towards a leadership role within a new environment. Because the world around us is changing faster and faster and because leadership is shaping that world, there are bigger and bigger challenges on your path. Are you ready for that leadership role?

As a leader, it is important to be connected to, and have clarity about, the greater intent of the self and your relationship with the greater whole. Clarity about your personal calling, vision and values is vital in this regard. Your relationship to the world is of great importance as a leader. Are you aware of your connection with the world around you or are you emotionally more at the mercy of life’s events? Do you feel that you can keep on growing in this way as a leader?

What can you expect?

  • vier intensive training days full of leadership workshops
  • maximum 15 international participants
  • two dedicated leadership trainers
  • participants push the limits of their leadership and imagination
  • workshops with lots of action and reflection; therefore a transformative character

The workshop follows through four phases in which the leadership context is explored and practiced in different ways and at different levels. Tools for leaders (and followers) are explored and utilized. Leadership forms are numerous and varied; and insight into our leadership style is key to facilitating strong compassionate leadership. The Leadership Matters workshop is a four-day process that builds up in intensity and eventually, on the last day, turns into the calling of leadership in the 21st century…. and your personal leadership challenge.

The workshop also recognizes that leadership has a spiritual dimension and that this element of leadership is often not recognized in leadership learning. Therefore, this workshop also brings specific terms from the yoga tradition to stimulate reflection on leadership. It therefore includes daily introspection meditation sessions.
Another aspect that is central to this series of workshops is the role that the collectivity plays in the development of leaders. Positive leadership works to develop a person’s internal capacity for reflection together with a deep commitment to serve the world.

New Take on Leadership Training A report on “Leadership Matters”

“Empowering, inspiring and hopeful” are the first things that come to mind when I think about LM. I most loved the dancing and acting to step out of my comfort zone and show what I have to offer. My experience of flow in these four days was free, without judgement, inspiring and focused on the development and on seeing all the opportunities to do that. For me, the workshop was very much connected and relevant to where I am now and where I need to go. It helped me see in perspective what I am doing. It helped me to take a step back, see what I am doing and what I want to be doing. So that I can make a plan for how to get there.

The main things I learned are all the different examples of leadership and the insight into how leadership builds. These examples exposed me to how I could start to show more leadership in my work. This workshop really helped me to be more balanced, focused and clear in what is essential in my work. I feel the impact of that every day still.

Leadership as an artform - the spirit of leadership

Huub’s Story

I had no expectations of LM, and to be frank, this way of learning was more helpful and better than I could have expected. LM was a very free workshop, unlike other classroom workouts that I have attended before. Compared to (workshops with) tables in tight rows, listening, receiving too much information and doing very little, LM was so much better!

I now have a new view of ‘beneficial’ leadership. By discussing the topics in groups, we learned a lot from each other. This discussion gave me a lot of new insights.
One of the things I learned is that a good leader is an example for others, without any self-interest. The leader gives a good example by doing, not by conducting. Working together is the key. By putting into practice what I have learned, I notice that I’m now doing much better than before.

# Is your leadership style attuned to the moment at hand, and what’s needed of you?
# Does anything need to be changed or improved to lead more effectively into the unknown?
# What actions can be taken to course-correct and show up in a better way for your organization?
# What perspectives would benefit your decision-making?

Are you a leader who realizes that a future-proof world and a positive transition begins with your leadership? Then sign up now for Leadership Matters! ( at the bottom of this page)
