Specialty Areas

The SAMURAI Self-Leadership programme is a development process that builds commitment amongst a group of people within an Organisation to become leaders and champions of change. This change begins with them; it begins with defining what they need to
'become' in order to make a real sustainable difference to the Organisation they serve. This is more than just a task or an intellectual
It is for this reason that the SAMURAI programme focuses strongly on the emotional quotient, not just the intellectual aspects of self-leadership. In fact we have found that the majority of success is in the emotional domain. What we mean by the emotional
domain includes:
Team agreement (being more interested in winning than "beingright"),
Experiencing the bond of a team,
Having fun,
Creating mutual support and building others for success.

The group will come away with a very strong sense of self-belief to initiate and contribute in the most positive and effective manner. To be leaders of change within the Organisation they serve they will learn that the first great quality of a leader is in the way they create 'purpose' in what they do. With 'purpose', people find real meaning and motivation to be part of something, beyond just feeling they are there to do work. 'Purpose' is the one great thing that attracts people and pulls them along.

The first great quality of a Leader is in the way they create 'Purpose'.

It is the key enabler that takes people beyond compliance, to an area where discretionary effort is the norm. The challenge of every leader is to unlock that potential from within themselves and the people they work with. When as a Leader you know what your purpose is, and you are deeply committed to achieving it, you maximise your own potential and influence positively the people you work with. You become someone who is a magnet for others, and this magnetism emanates from your clear direction.
