Leadership from the Inside Out

Leadership From the Inside Out is a program for anyone who wants to lead with passion, power and purpose.

When we understand who we are on the inside we can see clearly and respond effectively to what is happening around us. Looking inward with the intent to understand ourselves, and by extension understanding others, is the key to effective leadership. That’s what Leading From the Inside Out is all about.


“The course has provided me with a toolbox of concepts that I use to understand myself and others. This understanding makes me a much more effective leader and has helped me create a high-performing team”

Who You Are is How You Lead

Leadership From the Inside Out will guide you in becoming an instrument of change using the concepts of Transactional Analysis. Our in-depth training sessions provide models which have specific tools and strategies to help clients tap into their inner courage and confidence; revealing how personal authenticity has the power to create high-performance teams and cultures of care and accountability.

Program Outline

Leadership From the Inside Out is a program comprised of eight modules delivered over eight days over the course of 8 months.

The program includes peer coaching with other participants and small group peer coaching as part of the program. This allows for integration of the material into participants’ role within their organization and supports lasting change.

Participants can also discuss how to access professional coaching throughout the program or as part of their continuing development at the end of the program.

Course Content

Module 1: The Roadmap of Congruence and Authenticity

How we begin influences all that follows. The brain continues to be shaped by the quality of our relationships at home and at work. This module sets the stage for understanding yourself and others, establishing the connection between who you are as a person and as a leader.

Module 2: Transform Your Beliefs

In this module, we discuss our visions for the future and conduct an in-depth investigation of the challenging and limiting beliefs we have about ourselves and about others – beliefs that impact how we lead.

Module 3: Impactful Communication

On Day 3, we discuss awareness of communication styles and aim to enhance participants’ interpersonal influence and agility. Attendees will garner practical tools that can help them talk in a way that makes others listen, and learn how to engage stakeholders, employees and clients in ways that promote business success.

Module 4: Ending the Psychological Game

Participants gain experience identifying the destructive ‘games people play’ in organizations and learn how to create alternatives that build connection and foster collaboration.

Module 5: Personality Adaptations – Coach Yourself and Others for Highest Competence

This module presents three of six adaptive styles that give leaders insight on how to successfully establish rapport, focus, make good decisions, and be educated on how success is compromised under stress.

Module 6: Personality Adaptations – Manipulation, Skepticism and Withdrawing – the Unconscious Sabotage of Success

Participants learn how they think, feel and act when under the most stressful situations. These adaptations have a powerful influence for how people ‘do good in the world’, and when stressed, also predict the risk that can lead to bankruptcy, lack of integrity, or serious harm to employees and stakeholders.

Module 7: Reality Blindness and the Cure

Determining what information is significant, whether that significance presents a problem, and further, establishing whether the problem has options for resolution is the basis of the Day 7 module.

Module 8: Putting it All Together

Participants learn a final few concepts to connect and integrate all the concepts presented to create a plan for implementing targeted change.
