Conscious Leadership

Conscious Leadership 

Paris, France, April 10 & 11 2013


This year, we will particularly explore the logical levels and the process of change. 


One of the most critical success factors required to survive and thrive in today’s challenging and changing business world is the capacity for leadership. We will explore various aspects of this theme, focusing in particular on Conscious Leadership. We will use NLP and the Enneagram as complementary approaches for achieving greater awareness: to better know oneself, to recognize one’s areas for improvement, and to establish a dynamic of change.

Leadership & Consciousness

Sometimes, during our lifetime or in the course of a given day, we are able to welcome present reality without fear or filters; at other moments, we are conditioned by certain mental or emotional habits that deter our capacity for clear perception. In the first case, the leader will lead with fairness; in the second, projections may well obscure the leader’s decisions.  How does one become conscious of the how, when and why of being off-center?  In order to answer this question we will explore different paths coming from both NLP and the Enneagram.

“Visionary” leadership to change the world

At some point in our lives we probably all feel the desire to “change the world” or to “make the world a better place.” This desire usually stems from a “vision” that our lives or our world could be enriched or improved in some way.  Such visions of the future often provide guidance and direction for our lives and our work, providing the motivation and impetus for change on many levels.

In this session we will consider some essential abilities and skills, as well as the fundamental principles of Visionary Leadership necessary for the creation of “a world to which people wish to belong.” These include naming and clarifying our dreams and ideals, sharing them with others, transforming dreams into action, accepting the assistance of others for turning dreams into reality.

Creating a world to which people want to belong

This includes having an impact on the world around us for a better world, helping people become more responsible, empowering individuals as co-creators of change and transformation.

Many of the skills covered in this presentation have been modeled from and were inspired by effective leaders and managers from around the world: communicating, interacting, and managing relationships within an organization, network or social system.


Participants will learn how to:

  • Define conscious leadership
  • Identify their vision and mission
  • Distinguish between “accurate self-awareness” and  “automatic behavioral reflexes”
  • Find a link between self-awareness, self-acceptance and conscious leadership
  • Establish a coherent connection between conscious leadership, clarity of vision and a fair and accurate sense of self-awareness.


Coaches, consultants, trainers, heads of companies, managers, professionals in human resources, and all those interested in the human dimension of leadership.
