LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

‘LEAD YOURSELF FIRST’  

The Personal Development Pathway to Authentic Leadership

If you’ve done lots of leadership programs but still don’t have all the answers, and you know you can still be a better version of yourself but can’t find the key steps that bring it all together, then you’re looking for the kind of training that covers more than exploring just the surface intellectual skills.

You’re looking for access to the innate wisdom that is your ‘Inner Leader’; the part of you that can stand apart when necessary, choose an unpopular course of action that you know is right and which has the compassion, courage and strength, to stand up for and deliver what is best for everyone in your care.

‘What you are today is the culmination of all your life experiences, how you have responded to them and organised your way of being in the world.  Many parts of you work well and support good function and others, long suppressed or not yet opened, are waiting to be released.

Self-leadership is where it all starts.  Leadership is a role that each of us will undertake; it will come to us in life in one form or another and when it comes, we are either ready for it and we take those that follow to somewhere better, or not.  Our followers will be at work, at home and in our communities, and each one of them will be powerfully impacted by the quality of what we do.  Leaders who can be themselves with courage, strength and compassion, find deeper reserves of integrity, authenticity and presence, even when they’re challenged.

Working to free yourself from the barriers you hold to your own empowerment is the most critical leadership development work; you may be able to hold your own in the boardroom and direct traffic at the critical junctures of your working days, but if you cannot build a great culture at home and at work and lead your people into the new frontiers of family and business life today, you are playing an old game.

‘Fully understanding what holds you back from being empowered, confident and at peace within yourself and how to unlock and use this energy, is a sacred toolkit for life.’

The Content Includes

  • The Real Leadership Journey
  • Self-Leadership and Personal Power
  • Individuation, Independence and Freedom
  • Conditioning and the Psychology of Personal Change
  • Emotional Mastery; Influencing Yourself and Other People
  • Authentic Empowerment
  • Harnessing Intent and Purpose
  • Engaging Inner Wisdom and the Higher Self

‘To engage your innate talent and use courage as your natural way of operating in the world, is the journey to leadership; it is a process of self-empowerment and self-development.’

The program is conducted in a series of short, high-impact training sessions, several individual coaching intensives and a variety of other key activities that make it unique in its approach.  The course spans a three-month timeframe; it is part one, of a two-part leadership development program.  It is designed to allow time for integration and understanding to develop in all participants.  Allowing them the time to learn and then practice the skills and behaviours, in their workplace and home environments and then have the opportunity to ask questions, get feedback and make adjustments; this is a critical factor in the success of the program.

‘Leadership is a powerful and very personal journey into the core of your being, to find the inner passion that enables you to guide others to take the same expedition. It is not a shared process; it is the search for independence that will see you stand out from the crowd, stand up for what you know to be true and stand alone to make an important point if necessary.’

 

‘LEAD OTHERS TO LEAD THEMSELVES’

The Partner Program to ‘Lead Yourself First’

‘Lead Others to Lead Themselves’ is an intensive program designed to drastically improve the way you lead at work and support the development of the culture in your business workplace.  Authentic leaders are confident, decisive and optimistic and they know how to inspire others to join them on a campaign.

They possess an open and engaging style and demonstrate empathy and awareness; they communicate effectively, stay on track and drive business outcomes in line with the values of their people and the vision of the company.  This program is designed to develop workplace leaders capable of leading authentically and inspiring those around them.

Leadership is about responsibility, accountability and courage and when your business has a critical mass of ‘real’ leadership capability at all levels, you will have a great culture.  Leadership is a process of self-development and this program includes a strong, personal development component, which is the key reason why attendees buy-in so strongly and remember and use the skills in all areas of their lives; especially at work.  This program is designed to follow-on from the ‘Lead Yourself First’, personal empowerment training.

‘Let’s take leadership out of the boardroom and spread it through the entire organisation; leadership at every level of a business, is empowerment, engagement and responsibility at every level.

‘Leading Others to Lead Themselves’ is designed to engage and expand the communication and soft-skills capabilities, necessary for individuals to demonstrate the transparent integrity, accountability and self-mastery that will begin to transform your workplace culture and facilitate greater business outcomes.  Most leaders understand the cognitive and behavioural aspects of leadership, but leaders have a far greater impact when they can use more than just their intellect.  Leaders who can ‘be’ themselves with courage, strength and compassion, find deeper reserves of integrity, authenticity and presence, even when they’re challenged.

‘These leaders are rare; they are the people who bring sustainable and memorable change wherever they go, and within an organisation, can propel it and its people toward extraordinary outcomes.’

The Content Includes

A rich mix of topics designed to accelerate leadership capability in a workplace setting, including:

  • Be the leader you want others to become
  • Leading to influence outcomes in others
  • The impact of leadership on organisational cultures
  • Communicating to engage, empower and inspire others
  • The psychology of personal empowerment
  • Integrity, response-ability, accountability and the art of ‘natural influence’
  • Understanding motivation and the tactics for momentum
  • Personal power and grounded assertiveness; keys to clarity
  • Emotional awareness, management, maturity and development
  • Conflict proficiency and skills for resolving disagreements
  • Encouraging and enabling the empowerment of others
  • Getting out of the way, so others can ‘grow up’

‘Leadership is no longer a senior role; it is a life-skill, and when you offer it to your people, you equip them with the capability to lead well at work and at home, and they will use and appreciate your gift for the rest of their lives.’

If you drive the outcomes in your business, it’s important to understand the critical importance of authentic leadership; the more ‘real’ leaders you have in your organisation, the better your company culture will become; this is why authentic leadership development is the best investment you will ever make in your business.

‘Wisdom is that special blend of experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the art of inspiring a deeper awareness and a more authentic journey in others.’

Leadership capability is uniquely meaningful to everyone; attendees will interpret and utilise the skills, data and concepts that make up this program in their own distinctive ways.  As they progress through the course, they will ‘stack’ and integrate the new information and add innovative dimensions to old skillsets and broaden their approach to everything they do. 

The program is conducted in a series of short, high-impact training sessions, spanning several months; it is part two, of a two-part leadership development program.  It is designed to allow time for integration and understanding to develop in all participants.  Allowing them the time to learn and then practice the skills and behaviours, in their workplace and home environments and have the opportunity to ask questions, get feedback and make adjustments, this is a critical factor in the success of the program.

 

‘THE EMPOWERED WOMAN’

A Program for Women Committed to Real Development

Mastering the art of self-empowerment is the key to feeling great about yourself, your life and everything you contribute to it. If you know you can be better at being you; more confident, more assertive, more skilled to deal with the challenges that life throws at you, and better equipped to ride the wave of phenomenal change that is our world today, then this program is for you.

For the last two years I’ve been developing some new content for individuals who know they want to make a difference by being the difference in their own lives and influencing others from there. It is designed to give you what you need to immerse yourself in the journey of your life; the journey to authentic self-leadership.

‘Self-mastery is the doorway to becoming who you really are and when you know how to use your mind to make powerful, personal change and release your limiting patterns of thinking and acting, you are free to be authentically your ‘best’ self’.

Leadership is a role that each of us will undertake; it will come to us in life in one form or another, and when it comes, we are either ready for it, and we take those who follow to somewhere better, or not. Our followers will be at work, at home and in our community, and each one of them will be powerfully impacted by the quality of what we do.

‘The quality and depth of your own development is the gift you continually give to the other people in your life’ 

The innate talent and capabilities that you hold as ‘who you are’, cannot be of value to others if you don’t yet have the personal power to put yourself in the front line, whether that is at work, in your family or on a more public platform. Your move toward your own empowerment is the most critical journey you will ever take; it is a journey toward authenticity, inner strength and self-love, and if you don’t take it, you lose the very meaning of your life as an individual, and therefore you cannot contribute the ‘motherlode’ of your purpose in the world.

During this weekend event, you will spend time:

  • Understanding the cycles of limitation and how to break free of what is holding you back including behavioural ‘patterning’, emotional reactions and the habitual mental processing that keeps you powerless
  • Exploring and identifying the unique talents and qualities you possess that make you who you are and how to increase the impact they have on others
  • Learning the fundamentals for confidence, self-belief, self-image and assertiveness to magnify self-love and your ability to have great relationships with others
  • Understanding emotions and how to master their influence on your life, your relationships and your ongoing ‘state of being’
  • Learning about your ‘inner leader’ and how she connects with your Higher Self and your results in life
  • Increasing your inner strength and personal empowerment via self-awareness and self-management activities

‘The role of women in our world today is rapidly changing as women step up and step out into a bigger arena to make the difference that only they can make. Their role is a potent and sacred task handed down over generations, and there is an urgency now for this work to be ‘live’ everywhere in life; in our families, our workplaces and our local and international communities.’

Two and a half days of identifying, harnessing and expressing the power of who you really are …

‘A woman who is balanced, in the way she uses her feminine and masculine energies and asserts her leadership capability, is a true and transformative force in the world, and we need a lot more of them’.

Carrying the feminine energies at this time in history is an honour and a role that carries great responsibilities and greater potential to bring much needed change to our planet. Things are not changing any more; they have already changed, and the critical work now is the integration and nurturing of the new paradigms into our families, our workplaces, our communities and the world at large. It is a big task and one that can be done very well by every empowered woman.

WHO IS THIS SEMINAR FOR?

This is a seminar for women interested in learning how to be powerful, focused and assertive in the way they live, relate to others and lead those around them. If you have the responsibility of a family, you are a leader in your workplace or are aspiring to be more effective wherever you are, this program is designed for you.

Susie will take you on a journey through the fundamentals of self-empowerment, across a variety of training sessions, open discussions, self-rating questionnaires, interactive scenarios and activities designed to give you a clear understanding of your talents, capabilities and areas for development. She will then give you the skills and strategies to bring meaningful and sustainable change to every area of your life.

This program addresses the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual aspects of being a woman, and no matter how much personal development work you have done, this seminar offers a unique view of change and a powerful opportunity to move toward becoming better and better versions of yourself.

INTENSIVES AND RETREATS

Ways to Deepen Your Personal Development

Susie began her teaching life in the large, open-plan lounge room of her home in the beautiful, bush hills surrounding the city of Melbourne. At first, she worked with small groups of her coaching and counselling clients, offering small intensives on a variety of her teachings and then later to broader groups who had heard of her work.

In these early years, Susie focused much of her work in relationship, grief and trauma counselling, as well as intensive individual coaching sessions, offering skills for greater self-awareness, self-management and personal change. She also conducted live-in, training intensives on a regular basis to train other trainers, therapists and enthusiasts in breath work, body work, movement yoga, spiritual disciplines, psychotherapy, NLP and dynamic feedback techniques.

 

‘Your empowerment and expansion as a conscious individual is the most important activity you will ever engage in; it will determine how you approach your life and the resultant levels of meaningful success and happiness, you are able to achieve.’
