Leadership is difficult and while there are many courses out there, most of them focus on the relationship between the leaders and their followers. This 4 Pillars workshop introduces you to a self-focused process, which will help you to improve your leadership confidence and therefore the trust between you and your followers.
In today’s world, leaders need to give up control, which requires becoming a servant to the team and being authentic to inspire them. Virtues, which go beyond the traditional conceptualization of leadership and move the focus on the “self”. Thus, leadership starts within each one of us.
The 4 Pillars workshop will let you experience different views of leadership and equip you with guidelines which will help you to become a servant and authentic leader.
The full-day workshop will be an introspective, mindful and at some point even meditative journey, in which you will experience the 4 Pillars constantly throughout the day. We intentionally designed the workshop in a radically different format you might be used to. We will stretch and might even challenge your comfort zone.
- Check-in to the course with 2 qualities
Getting ready into this course with being mindful and improving your growth mindset.
- Pillar 1: Vulnerability
Often, we are stopping ourselves from solving a problem because we are afraid of something. Embracing this fear will help us to get comfortable with it.
- Pillar 2: Empathy
Any potential team’s reaction to our behaviors can significantly hinder our leadership capability. Empathy is about knowing their reaction and as a consequence feel more confident in our decision-making.
- Pillar 3: Integrity
When confronted with several options, we sometimes just go for the quick and easy solutions instead of the right solution. Connecting your decision back to your values will support you to stay authentic.
- Pillar 4: Adaptability
The world is changing constantly. Therefore, our decisions need to be adaptable to the changes happening around us.
- Gather and create Awareness on your challenges
We are constantly confronted with challenges we need to solve for our organization. This can include transformational, restructuring or transformational decisions. In the end, we will guide you with an extensive set of questions through all 4 pillars towards higher leadership confidence. We will work on your individual challenge or provide close to reality scenarios.
