Self Authoring Masterclass: Effective Leadership


The word “leadership” can bring to mind a variety of images. For example:


A political leader, pursuing a passionate, personal cause.

– An explorer, cutting a path through the jungle for the rest of his group to follow.

– An executive, developing her company’s strategy to beat the competition.


Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring. Everyone respects and adores leaders, they are a crucial part of successful endeavours. Whether in work or self-employed, one’s ability to lead positively correlates to how much one earns, and how valuable one is to the team and greatly determines personal fulfilment. This is to say, before one can lead others, he/she must learn to lead himself.

As you can imagine, this skill is in short supply. The world is fraught with bad leaders. Leaders who are not accustomed to servanthood but instead confuse leadership with being the boss, the man/woman at the top or simply bellowing orders at others.

This is not effective leadership. While leaders set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a smooth and efficient way. They must create spaces for followers to flourish and must be able to nurture talent, bringing out the best in other people. This is a departure from most leadership plans. We want to, in our session highlight visionary thinking and bringing about change, instead of management processes that are designed to maintain and steadily improve current performance.

In this program, we will: 

  • Focus on the process of leadership. In particular, we’ll discuss the “transformational leadership” model, first proposed by James MacGregor Burns and then developed by Bernard Bass.
  • Learn how to develop effective leadership qualities and how to deploy them
  • Learn how to lead in a pandemic?
  • Discuss leading from the back vs leading from the front
