Bespoke Programs

Work with us to design a bespoke immersions and experiential leadership development program based on the Lead With Humanity Ethos for your organisation or team. 
Choose from our range of contemporary content & immersive venues to create a program that tailors the Lead With Humanity Process to the needs of your organisation.


The journey of life and our role as leaders can be reflected by the nodes, hooks and spikes of the buffalo thorn.
The leaves have 3 veins – representing our relationship with
- Ourselves
- Other people
- Our creator’ – (however delegates wish to interpret this)
The nodes are the moments in time when we make tough decisions.
The hooks challenge us to hold dear to that which is sacrosanct in our lives.
The spikes determine the future course that we set for ourselves.
All are totally dependent on the depth of the roots we sink that determine the essence of who we are and how we will lead. The experiences are a ‘node’ and each delegate will be challenged to explore their own leadership hooks and spikes over the course of the program. Developing leadership potential is an intensely personal journey.

Lead With Humanity Process

We don’t believe that leadership can be taught ... Rather we aim to create situations in which delegates can discover their current leadership impact, rethink their leadership roles and more importantly, identify who they want to be as a leader and how to enhance their leadership potential.
The Lead with Humanity programs are set in a uniquely South African context, where the humanitarian spirit of Africa has historically generated globally influential and authentic leaders, such as Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi – who lived and led with humanity to become real global leaders, leading people through times of momentous change and creating new circumstances.
Transformational leaders, such as these, learn through their diverse interactions with real people in the cauldron of contemporary society. They go to the heart of today’s challenges and embrace experiences that mirror real life, work and family dynamics where risk, conflict, vulnerability, social pressure, success and failure are everyday realities.
