Numerous studies suggest that poor leadership is a primary contributor to low productivity and employee disengagement. A recent study found that 69% of managers were generally uncomfortable communicating with employees. The risks associated with ineffective leadership can be detrimental




I encourage leaders to FIND THEIR OWN VOICE and show high levels of PERSONAL INTEGRITY, self-confidence and the courage to speak up when necessary. Through a creative approach to self-discovery, I demonstrate how maintaining CONSISTENCY and PROFICIENCY within a leadership role is inseparable from having a strong sense of self as a leader.

I utilise ARTISTIC and PERFORMATIVE approaches that have been proven to be useful in business settings and helpful in reclaiming or expanding a sense of experimentation, playfulness and wonder.

These mental states are essential for ongoing innovation, strategic renewal, creative cooperation and collaboration; and methods of communication that support such interaction. This approach combines deep self-reflection with impactful, courageous action.

Every leader needs to find his or her own authentic leadership style, but core skills are essential for any successful leadership.

These include:

*Personal credibility 

*Ability to influence and motivate people

A strong knowledge base and sense of self as a professional leader will facilitate a flow on effect that will see a willing and productive team emerge.

*Ability to communicate with charm and honesty

Strong leadership not only relies on knowledge, it is also driven by sincere and authentic communication that allows leaders to connect and build trusting relationships with their team members.    

*Ability to manage diverse relationships and build effective teams

Developing emotional awareness of diverse personalities allows for leaders to structure teams based on the emotional nature as well as the professional skills of team members.

*Ability to anticipate change and act proactively in any given situation

Life happens! But knowing how to deal responsibly and effectively with the interactions between conflicting approaches or changing situations within the workplace will maximise and maintain ongoing productivity and growth.



This personalized training provides invaluable lessons on how to:

  • * Transform old mental maps or paradigms to allow the adoption of a partnership approach that creates a shared sense of vision

    * Listen to your team and emphasize WIN/WIN rather than adversarial WIN/LOSE approach.

    * Step out of your comfort zone in order to see the bigger picture

    *  Re-direct focus towards SEIZING opportunities rather than SEEING problems

    * Exploring decision making processes to INVIGORATE and INSPIRE creative and effective decision making skills.





“To grow as a practitioner and within myself, I needed someone who would shoot straight from the hip and not just feed my words back to me, I also knew that I needed someone who would not let me get away with anything; someone who didn’t mince words about issues within the business and how they were intertwined with my own “stuff”; someone who would be both firm and kind.”

“I don’t know exactly what you would call what we do. I do know that it has not been easy, nor has it always been fun, but it has always been real. Layers have been unearthed and others tidied up and packed away for now. I have enormous respect for Russya’s skill set.”
