Leading with Grace & Resilience retreat

Leading with Grace & Resilience is a programme for women business leaders, change makers, senior executives and social entrepreneurs. Those who are committed to bringing about a new paradigm of leadership and ensuring business becomes a positive force for good in the world.

The two primary elements of Grace and Resilience co-exist as a condition for dynamic, creative and constructive leadership. Restoring the balance between the deep feminine qualities with the masculine is now essential for our future.

Whether starting a movement or pioneering a new frontier, exemplary leaders have a vision and a commitment to something greater than themselves; they think large, and they think long-term.

They also work on the radical mastery of their inner world; developing self-awareness, managing their ego, acknowledging limiting beliefs, transforming counter-productive behaviours, accessing intuition and expanding their capacity for compassion. This inner power becomes the source of their grace, resilience and impact.

This 4-day residential intensive has been designed on the basis of time honoured truths, current scientific research and empirical observation from working with leaders across all sectors of society for 35 years. It will be highly interactive, experiential and transformative such that your reflections, insights, new perspectives and tools can be applied immediately to have the greatest impact on your leadership and your life.


  • Transforming limited beliefs and unexamined patterns of behaviour

  • Developing the courage and presence to lead powerfully to shape the future of the organisation

  • Clarifying personal purpose with an action plan to deliver on that purpose.
