Training within the Balanced Leadership Framework.
Progressive approaches for internal and external professionals


Why this, why now?

The work of developing leadership has rarely been so crucial and the generative approach of Engendering Balance (EB) strikes a chord with many people who work in this area. We offer a powerful framework that enables clients to discover a more expansive way of thinking about leadership - generating ideas that can be applied in an immediate and directly relevant way within their workplace. 

In response to a stream of requests, we have created Practitioners’ Professional Development (PPD) workshops for fellow practitioners who are engaged in developing leadership with individuals, teams and organisations.

Who for?

This programme is for people who have experience in developing leadership, a capacity to work systemically, and an appetite to work at depth.  You may be an external provider - an executive coach; a team coach or an OD consultant.  Or you may be working from within an organisation, in a role that has a sustained focus on developing leadership capacity and creating future-ready leadership cultures.

Practitioners' Professional Development (PPD)

The PPD programme was an electrifying experience for me. Having worked in leadership development for well over 15 years I have grappled with engaging clients at the depth necessary to help them bring about significant and lasting change. To find a way to facilitate real movement was uplifting.

What you gain

You gain knowledge of cutting edge leadership thinking and practice, adding valuable and progressive resources that can be woven into your current professional practice.  What you learn is based on the Engendering Balance approach, which has been successfully applied within leadership coaching, team development, leadership programmes; and culture change initiatives. Equally important, you will gain insights that support your personal growth and self-awareness as a practitioner. 


PPD One – A Fresh Approach to Leadership

In this workshop we introduce the EB approach and guide you through a simple and powerful facilitation process that invites deep, safe and broad exploration of the leadership qualities that create the conditions for success.

The process will add value to your client work in a myriad of ways: build awareness of the fundamental leadership qualities that we all possess; to enable personal growth; to explore better ways of working within teams; and to open up meaningful dialogue around creating flourishing and inclusive leadership cultures. Along the way, we equip you to work with our Qualities of Practice cards which are a versatile tool for stimulating deep insights and generating discussion.

Upcoming Programmes:  Donegal, Ireland - February 2017 : Bristol, England - March 2017

I found the PPD programme a breath of fresh air! It was at times challenging, always thought provoking and also tremendously supportive and enabling. The power of the programme lay in the depth of impact it created on me personally, and in seeing the value of working at psychological depth, with care and professionalism. Truly inspirational!

PPD Two – The Depth and Breadth of Leadership

In this workshop you experience the powerful learning that can arise through working with the depth and breadth of leadership - engaging with beliefs and assumptions and unconscious processes that influence leadership. To explore this we use the Relational 360FF - our distinctive Feedback:Feedforward Process which guides leaders to deeper self-awareness and real growth in their leadership contribution.

You will have a rare opportunity for a deep consideration of your own leadership within the context of your coaching and facilitation work. You will be supported to develop your confidence and capacity to use the Relational 360FF process. Satisfactory completion of the supervised practice follow up day will enable you to purchase and use the Relational 360FF.

Upcoming Programmes:  Bristol, England - March 2017 and November 2017
