Good leaders are trailblazers, making a path for others to follow. Great leaders, however, inspire their people to reach higher, dream bigger, and achieve greater. Perhaps the most important leadership skill you can develop is the ability to provide inspiration to your team. If you inspire them to reach for the stars, they just might bring you back the moon.Smart leaders know what they don’t know. Learning is a constant process throughout your professional life, and it doesn’t stop when you’ve become a team leader. Make sure to never stop looking for opportunities for professional development, and pass on the wisdom you’ve learned to your people.To be a good leader, you sometimes need to go down the untraveled path. Being bold in the face of uncertainty will help give your team courage and motivate them to keep striving when the going gets tough.

The Core Institute Training Programmes are all designed to increase your effectiveness as a manager, to enhance your performance and to help you implement changes effectively. Designed and delivered by our dedicated Core trainers, the Core Leadership Training will help you gain confidence in making the decisions necessary to succeed. Furthermore, it will expand your thinking & feeling and you will learn what it takes to become an exceptional leader. The Core Leadership Training is a reflective process that offers participants insight into the way in which they exercise judgement. The training is designed for managers, equipping them with a broad perspective.

Your people are your greatest resource; listen to their feedback and encourage their dreams. You never know where your next great idea will come from, so empower everyone up and down the corporate ladder to contribute and innovate. The theories and models that were used to guide decision-making in the past no longer provide leaders with all the answers they need. Successful leaders rely increasingly on their own judgement when making decisions. The Core Leadership training acts on the belief that exercising judgement is neither an art nor a science, but a craft that can be honed through practice, reflection, feedback and coaching. It will give you an opportunity to reflect on the ways you exercise judgement at important crossroads in your work and life. We offer you a complete 3-day programmme which helps leaders to address all aspects of leadership. The programme complements functional understanding with a holistic (Taoistic) approach.Our innovative methods offer two unique opportunities: first, leaders reflect actively on the quality of their own judgement; second, they use appropriate frames of reference to define a style to enhance performance.

Leaders look out the window to apportion credit to factors outside themselves when things go well. At the same time, they look in the mirror to apportion responsibility, never blaming bad luck when things go poorly. – Jim Collins


The courses are ideal for those with occupations in which they lead teams, groups or business units.


Since a leader needs to have followers to actually be a leader, he/she is always part of a system. This course focuses on group training and system learning in order to challenge whether or not the leaders can connect with the group. This challenge is one a leader encounters every day. The reflection exercises we do in groups offer you insights into how you exercise their judgement and teach you how to create a space where you can receive and give feedback and a stable environment for yourself and others.  Since inspiring others is an integral part of leadership, we ask you to share interactive stories based on real-life decisions. Working in a group gives you the opportunity to share experience and expertise very different from your own. We have our usual mix of exercises and traditional lectures to convey the latest management theories and immediately put them into practice.
