What's our Why?

Lead With Humanity exists to enable organisations, teams and individuals to see, understand and respond to the rapidly changing world, through experiencing it, immersing themselves into it, and self reflecting on how to influence it.
We do this through experiential leadership development immersions, either Lead With Humanity’s unique processes or through bespoke in house programs.
‘Finding your authentic self is critical to personal growth and fulfilment,
plus being the foundation to effective leadership.’

Our Approach

We believe that it is extremely difficult to teach ‘leadership’ – but we all can and do learn to lead, through real life experiences and authentic immersions. We invite our delegates to explore a different world, move out of their comfort zones and to immerse themselves in another ‘real world’, one very different to their own.

We encourage our delegates to learn through observation, interaction, reflection together with ongoing debate and feedback – our CARE approach: Connect, Awareness, Reflect, Explore.

Delegates discover their own leadership lessons, ones that resonate with who they are as individuals and often influenced by strong emotions that are evoked during the programs. At all times delegates are encouraged to be themselves – understand who they are authentically. By building on this authenticity they are encouraged to ‘live in a state of being an authentic leader’ rather than just trying to do ‘leadership things’.

Experiential Leadership Development

We offer experiential leadership development programs and uniquely curated immersions for organisations, teams and individuals.

These programs teach first hand lessons about societies in transition, social and environmental systems thriving in turbulent times, the challenge of risk and uncertainty, all underpinned by contemporary leadership thinking and neuroscience.

Programs

Leading With Humanity

Over 7 days, delegates work across diverse social systems and environments to develop contextual and self-understanding.

Living and working out of their ‘comfort zones’, delegates experience first hand the complexities of both the changing world and the complex systems at play, and assess their thinking behaviour and responses through a new set of eyes.

The Essence of Leadership

Over the course of three days, delegates will be asked to engage with, and immerse themselves in business, culture, history and our shared humanity on a journey of perspective which reframes how they view the world and their role in it.

Set in real time, delegates work across diverse social systems and environments to develop contextual & self-understanding. Living and working out of their ‘comfort zones’, delegates experience first hand the complexities of both the changing world and the complex systems at play, and assess their thinking, behaviour and responses through a new set of eyes.

Track Your Life

Somewhere in the African bushveld, just before dawn, a small group of people sit in silence as the last stars fade. They carry no cellphones and wear no watches. They are still, listening for the clues that will tell them where to begin the day’s animal tracking.

When the signal comes – the roar of a lion, the alarm call of a nyala – they stir, and as a group they move forward to cut the track. They are on the trail, where the challenge and the adventure begins. They rely on each other absolutely and their shared endeavour gives rise to that rarest thing in the modern world: a true sense of companionship.  This is your call to adventure: Join Them.

Exploring Leadership

Exploring Leadership is a journey of discovery into the challenges of leading in a VUCA world. Delegates are invited to think hard about themselves, their organisation and, especially, about leadership. Over a well-planned and carefully facilitated couple of days each will experience and explore universally recognised qualities that are proven over the ages as well as some of the latest thinking on personal and leadership development in our VUCA world.

Equus Coaching

The new business environment is marked by all the chaos and beauty of the natural world, so it’s not surprising that the leadership it calls for is shaped and informed by nature. This is likely why companies are increasingly turning to Equus Coaching® to hone the confidence, creativity and personal power of their leadership teams.
