This course has been one of the most satisfying and helpful courses I have been to. The Lab sessions are a fantastic concept and I have seen how cathartic and powerful they are to learning more about oneself in the real world. Thank you!

Being successful as a leader in the complex and dynamic world of organisations demands high levels of emotional intelligence. Cue The Leadership Edge workshop, an immersive learning experience that challenges you to look deeply at who you are; the context in which you lead, and the directions in which you can grow in order to be a more effective and successful leader.

This three-day workshop is based on a unique and highly experiential training design known as a Human Interaction Laboratory (HI Lab). Laboratories generally are places where investigation and change occur, and that is what The Leadership Edge offers participants.

You will learn about the impact of your behaviour on others; have the opportunity to experiment with new behaviours, and then receive feedback on what works best for you.

As a result, you will leave with greater self-awareness, increased emotional resilience, and greater behavioural flexibility.

The Laboratory experience is radically different from conventional 'talk and chalk' training courses, and as a result it holds out the possibility of real personal growth.

HI Labs are used by world-class universities (such as Stanford and Case Western) on their MBA and executive education programmes to teach ‘soft’ leadership skills. In New Zealand, Dr Ian Brooks has been offering this workshop since 2007. It has been so popular that he has now facilitated over one hundred Labs.

Who is the workshop suitable for?

Anyone in, or about to move into, a leadership role, or who is required to influence others in the course of their work.

This includes professional, technical, and clinical team leaders, and managers at all levels.
