A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

Balancing high performance and hard work with humaneness is essential if you want to ensure your organisation - and employees - are at peak performance. This new style of management is called managing without power.

This course focuses on helping managers and leaders unlearn the unconscious use of power and nurture high-performing, inclusive teams through human leadership. You’ll learn how to move away from promoting ‘survival of the nicest’ and ‘survival of the toughest’ cultures and consciously create an environment in which you’re actively investing in your teams.

By the end of the session, you’ll have learned how to implement techniques that will foster productivity, reduce employee burnout, and increase talent attraction and retention. Above all, you’ll leave knowing what it takes to build a truly diverse and inclusive culture built on trust and intrinsic motivation.

This Managing Without Power course is available as a private session. It will consist of four one-day in-person sessions, spread over nine weeks. Each in-person session is followed by three weeks spent applying knowledge on the job. Every element is customised to your organisation.
