Holistic Leadership Workshop

Holisti Leadership What is Holistic Leadership, and why is it highly relevant to today’s workplace and society?

Briefly, it’s the culmination of how leadership and management should be combined as an integrated practice. Throughout our lifetime, each of us needs to work towards becoming a balanced and centered individual who’s able to effectively use the four principal components of Holistic Leadership: Teaching, Directing, Participating and Nurturing.

This workshop, which can be adapted to either half a day or a full day, draws principally on Jim Taggart’s third edition e-book: Becoming a Holistic Leader: Strategies for Successful Leadership using a Principle-Based Approach. It also draws on Jim’s extensive research into leadership over the past 25 years, including his 500 leadership blog posts and numerous e-books.

The half day workshop comprises three parts:

Part One: The Relationship between leadership and Management
Outcome: Clear understanding of what leadership and management represent.

Part Two: Holistic Leadership
Outcome: Able to approach leadership and management in an integrated way.

Part Three: Building Change Adaptability
Outcome: Strengthen personal ability to adapt effectively to change.

Note: Full day workshop includes discussion on Guiding Principles for Holistic Leadership.

Jim uses an interactive approach to his workshops, involving small and full group discussions. Participants are encouraged to contribute actively to enhance their learning experience. In leaving the workshop, they will have access to a wide collection of resource materials on leadership, management, teams plus more.
