Inspiring Women Leaders


What does real inspirational leadership look like for you in the 21st century? How can you harness the power of diversity through being truly inclusive of women leaders?

Psycho-mythology, which depends upon an expanded use of active imagination, undergirds elements of the personal content incorporated in this work. Legends, dreams, and visions share insights with ...read more

General Sir Richard Dannatt
 

"An essential book for business leaders with pragmatic tips and wise advice from powerful stories."

Deanna Oppenheimer
CEO Barclays Retail Bank
 

"The author tackles an aspect of leadership which is often avoided - either because it is too difficult to capture or is ignored as irrelevant.  On the contrary, unless a leader loves those he leads then inspiration and motivation become elusive.  I commend this book."

"The Thinking Environment is a
revolutionary and inspiring tool."

Martin Kalungu-Banda

Author of Like Madiba: Leadership Lessons From Nelson Mandela
 

"As we make sense of change in the 21st century, a deep understanding of the Thinking Environment should be part of every leadership development programme. It intrinsically values the contribution and humanity of each person, and drives team effectiveness. Its power is evident in
higher quality relationships, as well as in
shorter, smarter meetings. Bravo!"
