Intellectual understanding on its own rarely creates a shift in personal capacity. Just as reading about emotional intelligence, and understanding the concept, doesn’t necessarily lead to an improvement in EQ, reading about developmental theory doesn’t transition you to the next level, or change your centre of gravity.
Growing your mind usually has to begin with freeing the mind in the first place.
There are times when we have to alter some of those material circumstances of our life to become freed up again. What we may miss is that these exterior changes don’t always transform our lives. In these circumstances we need to be looking elsewhere – inwards. We come to recognise that the breakthrough we’re looking for has to be an interior change.
Courage and Spark© has been the vehicle many people have found for addressing that interior change agenda.
Find out more about our approach to learning and what horizontal and vertical leadership can mean for you.
Vertical development is inside-out learning and involves a quite different process – based on reflection, awareness-raising and personal insight. A number of life experiences and developmental processes accelerate vertical growth. Courage and Spark© has been one of those for an ever increasing number of people.
Interest in horizontal and vertical development has brought attention to the proposition that most management development processes, and learning in general, has been based on the premise that if we equip people with knowledge, new skills, and behaviours, those will translate into improved competency and performance
The transformative nature of this learning experience lies in the refinement of its design, content and approach, combined with the skill, expertise and experience of the course facilitators. Our unique methodology has been honed over many years of delivering leadership and professional development learning experiences
We invite you to consider stepping into this important, transformative space. Focus on developing psychological and emotional capital – consciousness, psychological-mindedness, emotional intelligence, self-confidence, hope and optimism, resilience and perspective – are few and far between.
