How you meet and treat yourself determines how you meet, treat and lead other people.
If you meet yourself with brutality (which many leaders do), and disallow your full emotional experience, you inadvertently disallow it in others too. This can dramatically impair the impact and power of your leadership. If you learn to meet and treat yourself (and your experiences) with companionability and kindness you will be able to empathise with and lead others with ease.
This unique leadership development programme guides you through the methodology outlined in my book My Kinda Life® to help you change deeply held beliefs and behaviours that now don’t serve you so you can become a more effective leader and more fulfilled personally.
Discovering your Inner Brutality Template
In the first month we explore the ways your inner brutality scuppers your success, and prevents you enjoying your leadership. We discover your unique leadership template; identifying areas you would like to improve on, so that you can behave in a way that creates the positive impact you seek.
Embracing Uncomfortable Emotions
We all leave childhood and enter adulthood with an emotional palette suited to our family style. This most often means we are less comfortable with certain emotions compared to others. To lead your life well (and lead well) you have to extend and fill your palette up to all emotions. We focus on strategies for this in month 2.
Challenging your Deeply Held Beliefs
We make decisions about who we are based on what we’ve been through. Learning and installing companionability to yourself is essential for empathy with others. Companionability with all your experiences creates a competitive and resilient edge to your leadership. This is a rarely tapped resource that the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme allows you access to.
2 weeks out from the end of month 3 of the programme, we will conduct a thorough review of your progress so far to see where you are at.
After the initial 3 months, some leaders will feel they have made enough significant progress to continue on their own, while some may need some further support.
The My Kinda Life® Foundational Programme is a very personal journey, so we can tailor the length of the programme and level of support to your individual needs for as long as you need it, in whatever format is most beneficial for you.
Yes. I’m bound by professional standards to keep all sessions and communication with clients strictly confidential.
If you are curious about the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme, the first step would be to book a free initial consultation. At the end of that consultation, you will have a good idea to whether or not this will be the right approach for you.
Alternatively, you can read the My Kinda Life Book or listen to the My Kinda Life Podcast where you will learn more about the methodology and how it works.
If at any point during the 1st month of the programme you decide that it isn’t for you, we offer a full refund.
The programme is designed for both 1:1 work and with teams.
If you require more information about how the My Kinda Life® Foundation Programme could be beneficial for your team, please get in touch for more information.
The delivery of the programme is tailored around your schedule, commitments and whatever level of support you require.
Typically, we find the best progress is made 1 weekly 1 hour sessions (over zoom, face-to-face, or phone) along with check-ins as and when needed.
With that in mind, we can design the programme around whatever works best for you.
