Event description
This intensive program will give you the skills, mindset and tools to be truly courageous in 2022.

About this event

Think of great leaders who inspire you. What do they all have in common? How is it that they can make such a huge impact, even when facing the hardest of circumstances?


You may not feel like you’re very brave, but that doesn’t matter. Why? Because courage can be taught!

I’m here to teach you how to overcome your fear, with amazing tools and skills that will empower you to be the courageous leader the world needs! Using the my pillars of courage around vulnerability, values and resilience, you’ll learn how to combine them into courage that you can draw from in your leadership, and your everyday life as well.

If you currently can’t commit to a long-term program, our Courageous Leadership Intensive Workshop is the perfect solution.

Who is this workshop for?

Leaders who want to:

● Learn how to be the leader their teams and companies need

● Learn how to harness their skills and qualities and turn them into courage

● Further their personal and professional development

● Conquer their fears

● Instil bravery and other positive qualities in those around them

● Build their Courage Intelligence

● Impact their business and organisation

● Make a difference and change the world!

What will I learn?

You’ll learn about the four pillars that make up courage, and how they will help you develop and enhance your bravery. All it takes is practice and dedication, and you will become more courageous than you ever dreamed.

You’ll learn about the importance of, and how to harness your:

Vulnerability and Authenticity

Why vulnerability isn’t weakness; it’s one of your greatest assets and shows your authenticity. Vulnerability can’t exist without trust - in yourself and in your team.

Values and Courage

You need to know what you value, and it takes courage to stand by them when making tough decisions.

Resilience and Confidence

Setbacks and failures aren't going anywhere, so developing a growth mindset is key to withstanding difficult situations and circumstances.

Courageous Conversations

Learn the skills and tools to have courageous conversations.

Courage Intelligence

You will discover new ways of leading and behaving with courage in each of the 5 key areas:

Authenticity – trust, principles and values

Purpose – intent, emotion and reason

Impact – action, legacy, influence

Grit – passion, perseverance, resilience

Empathy- kindness, connection, awareness

This intensive yet entertaining workshop will help you:

● Gain skills and confidence

● Learn about yourself - your values, what motivates you, what drives you, etc.

● Face and conquer your fears

● Develop strategies to cope with difficulties and build your resilience

● Learn how to trust yourself

● Build on traits you already have to develop your courage

● Harness your current strength to become even stronger and braver

● Apply the actions and skills right away

● Be the authentic, kind, inspirational and courageous leader you want to be!
