Leading Yourself: Me: In this unit you will begin the leadership journey with an orientation to the Leadership Universe consisting of Me, Us and World and the five C’s and Intelligences of masterful leaders. This is followed by helping you understand your personal leadership strengths and development areas as a leader. The ability to have insight into who and what you are, and what you stand for as a leader is critical in being a masterful leader. Personal leadership entails insight into personal traits, intellect, personality, temperament, style, values and looking after your personal well-being.

Leading Others: We : This unit extends the leadership journey to include Others through sharing an inspiring vision and solid values, empowering and enabling others, modeling the way, encouraging the heart and the achievement of results. Leaders must work with Others to produce results for the organisation. Establishing and nurturing relationships is vital. It commences with healthy, constructive one-on-one relationships through building a high performance, engaged team, achieving with fellow leaders, to engaging the stakeholders of the organisation in order to obtain the endorsements and support from outside of the organisation.
You will learn:
- How to set up and sustain an effective leadership process with its key levers

- To Mobilize Others to become enthusiastic and dedicated followers – the We – of you as a caring leader
- The critical success factors to enhance your Interpersonal Mastery
Leading in Context: World: Masterful leadership requires the constructive engagement with the context in which you, as leader, are embedded: the operating arena of your organisation, your organisation, position and career. This requires having the right set of glasses on in looking at the world, and engaging with the context at the requisite level of complexity. Finally, you will have to weave everything together into a powerful story, using the combination of the “Me, We and World” to inspire, lead and produce results that matter. The story will give expression to your Personal Stance and Brand as a leader.
You will learn:
- • The right set of glasses to use and understand the context: choose an appropriate world view
