Soulful Leaders Journey – Online

Soulful Leaders Journey is for senior leaders from the business, charity and not for profit worlds.

An invitation to explore the landscape of leadership over the next three months – August & September.

We will be providing a weekly soulful practice and curated content around the themes that developed in our recent conference. We will be meeting monthly for some input, practice and to work together on the practicalities and complexities of the leadership task we have been given.

We aim to see a community of senior leaders develop:

  • Sharing a pattern of practice
  • Grounded in real issues and practical application
  • Curating key resources to help
  • Being practical and robust in our application
  • Developing a sense of accountability/support
  • Helping detoxify some of the unsoulful traits that are a hindrance

Each monthly gathering will be facilitated by two of the Soulful Leadership team and will meet Friday mornings 10 – 11.30am

14 Aug – Getting Free from Toxic – Traits – Led by John Casson & Roger Preece

11 Sep – Creating a Soulful Future – Led by Julia Ogilvy & Andrew Rodgers
