Holistic Leadership with Purpose and Creativity for a Complex World

Discover How to Think, Engage and Lead Holistically in a Volatile and Complex World.

In today’s complex time, leaders are challenged to lead with breath-taking innovation while being tested daily to unite diverse stakeholders for action. Experts from Indiana University from the USA and the Consulus leadership team from Asia and Europe come together to bring you an extraordinary formation experience based on a unique HERO holistic leadership model.

There are eight sessions, each limited to a cohort size of just 30 leaders. These sessions will help you redefine your purpose for growth and leadership while learning how to build high-trust with your teams in diverse situations through creative methodologies.

Purpose and Creativity are powerful assets for organizational leadership

Consider these:

Organizations that have leaders that value and implement purpose-driven leadership outperform the market 15:1

%

Leaders who consistently integrate design thinking into corporate strategy showed a 211% return over the S&P 500

%

62% of organizations surveyed by Consulus in 2021 shared that a high-trust culture fostered by leaders matters for innovation

There is such a wealth of experience with the facilitators of this particular series, they knew people, leaders all over the world whether it was major corporations or leaders in government, and brought those examples to us.

And it was kind of refreshing to see that it doesn’t matter if you manage 10 people, 100 people or 1000 people.

This particular series is really helpful to any particular leader and some of those leaders in major corporations face the same challenges as the people in our class did.

Profile of Leaders and Key Takeaways

This formation course is suitable for professional leaders or entrepreneurs from Americas and Europe serving in private and non-profit institutions.

We have engaged with C-suite and director-level leaders, and professionals from diverse range of industries including healthcare, consumer goods, insurance and investment, real estate and NGOs. Our past cohort participants are leaders in organisations such as Ascension Health, Fastenopfer Switzerland, NN Slovakia and the Urban Land Institute.

Discover the principles of “holistic leadership”

A method developed from research and 20 years of operational insights to drive purpose-driven performance and shape teamwork creatively for innovation and risk-taking.

Benefit from scheduled pause

Improve your mental well-being through a reflection and dialogue based process to gain deeper awareness and new skills to aid your role as a leader.

Engage with a diverse faculty

A group that brings applied experience in diverse sectors globally for over 30 years to gain fresh perspectives at challenges.

Be inspired by applied creative methodologies

Learn new methods through interactions with other leaders and faculty to engage your teams anew to nurture high-trust environments for change and innovation.

HERO of our time

A holistic leadership competency model based on 20+ years of leadership development

Heart and Spirit

This is about the personal virtues, values, and character strengths that one possesses which inform decisions and actions.

Embracive Thinking

This is about the mental capacity and capability to learn new information, think critically, embrace diversity of thought, and apply knowledge to real situations.

Relational Dynamics

This is about one’s physical presence, habits and emotions. It also includes how one relates to people and is aware of one’s own presence and that of others.

Operational Leadership

This includes all the capabilities that are needed for functional leadership, such as creating a vision, developing followership, planning, directing, and executing to achieve results. 

If you’re considering taking the holistic leadership program, I think that it’s something you should absolutely just check the box and do the opportunity to, again work with so many individuals around the globe.

Look at perspectives that have not been on your radar before. Really use these mutual learning opportunities and learning circles to tease out root cause and to dive into why you chose the path of leadership. We’re on this journey for a reason.

There’s a commitment somewhere deep down in us, and this particular series really made me take a look at why I do what I do for whom I do it for and how I commit to doubling down and doing it better.
