It would be the best course I have been on – and I have been on a few! I understand myself better than I ever have – what motivates me, what holds me back, and how my personality affects others.
Succeeding in a complex and dynamic world demands great relationship skills. Cue the Leadership Edge Laboratory, an immersive learning experience that will challenge you to relook at how you lead – not how you should lead, based on some theoretical model, but in an authentic way that works best for you.
The workshop is based on a unique training design known as a Human Interaction Laboratory (HI Lab). Laboratories generally are places where investigation and change occur: The Leadership Edge Laboratory is a tried and true programme that provides a rigorous and challenging learning experience. Participants learn how they are seen by others, and have the opportunity to experiment with different behaviours and receive feedback on what works best for them. As a result, they leave with greater emotional intelligence, emotional resilience and behavioural flexibility. The Laboratory experience is radically different from a standard training course and holds up the possibility of greater change as a result.
These Laboratories are used by world-class universities on their MBA and executive education programmes to teach 'soft' leadership skills. Ian Brooks has been offering The Leadership Edge Laboratory since 2007, and since then it has proved so popular that he has run it over 90 times.
This is your chance to participate in 2018. Each course is limited to only 9 people.
