Rebellious Leadership Team Development

Development Programmes and Retreats for Senior Leaders

Rebellious Leadership is about understanding who you are at the core.  It's about getting clear on your mission, your values, listening to that gut feel and using all of this insight to align what you say and what you do to who you are at the core - your True North is you like.

When I reached burnout in 2013 a contributing factor to this was not doing work that aligned to my values.  The leadership environment in which I was working was toxic, everyone was in it for themselves and nobody was able to see the bigger picture.  There was a complete lack of alignment, integrity and authenticity and I vowed at that point to not let anyone go through what I went through.  

The Leadership Team Development Programmes and Retreats are designed in a way to get you working from and aligned to, your core drivers - your values, your mission and your purpose.  Because when you live and lead from here, you become an incredible leader. 

All of the retreats will get you clear on:

Who you are

Why you do what you do

How to lead with integrity

How to align your values to the goals and priorities in your life and work

Understand your core and most valuable relationships and how to harness these effectively

Identify and remove the barriers and blockages that get in your way

Get you working and planning your time in line with your values and outputs and moving away from being busy

And more

If this sounds like the type of of leader you and your teams want to be, then let's talk


The Core 12 Month Programme

UK, US, Europe

The Core Leadership Programme is a 12-month programme for leaders who are ready to burn the handbook and align to their values and lead from the core.

The Programme includes six, bi-monthly two-day sessions with 1:1 Coaching in the months between.  Follow up 1:1 coaching sessions will then take place three and six months after the conclusion of the programme.

This is a programme that involves leading from the core, which means, that you dig deep in order to understand who you are which in turn will allow you to lead others with integrity and alignment.

The coaching sessions take the group learning to an even deeper level.

When we are clear on who we are at the core and we are able to align our thoughts, actions and interactions to this, we lead with integrity and authenticity and are able to create trust from the outset.

We’re all aware of leaders who say one thing and do another or who speak without conviction and this inhibits our ability to lead.  If we cannot lead, are we truly a leader or have we just been assigned the title of a leader based on our position within the company?

This programme is not for everyone.  Self-discovery and self-leadership can be hard, it can open up thoughts that we didn’t know we had, it can cause doubt and we can start to lack in confidence as we peel back the layers of who we are now and dig deep to who we really are.

Whilst this programme will produce deep change if you are prepared to let it happen, it’s about more than just change – it’s about self-discovery and alignment.  It’s not about teaching you or telling you how you should be leading based on frameworks and textbooks, but about you getting clear on who you are and how by knowing your true self, how you can lead, engage and motivate successfully.

So forget the rulebooks, the management speak and the leadership frameworks you’ve been suffocated by for years, and get comfortable being you.

There are no pre-requisites for this programme, other than you need to trust the process.  Some of it may feel uncomfortable, some of it may feel ridiculous, some of it may even feel totally pointless and like just another pointless programme that you’ve been through before with absolutely no change to how you live, lead or work.  The two biggest rules in this programme are:

Let it be easy

Learn to let go

If you can do this, you can do anything, and you will be truly able to lead from within and bring your teams along with you.

In addition to the investment of time, the financial investment per person starts from £12500 plus VAT and expenses if applicable.

Rebellious Leadership 3 Day Intensive Self-Discovery Experience

Peterborough, UK

The Rebellious Leadership 3 Day Intensive Self-Discovery Experience is a three-day empowerment intensive that involves some totally out of the box tasks, activities and reflections that will certainly allow you to go deep into who you are and how you can move forward effectively, may seem far too bizarre and pointless for some.

This is a totally experiential experience, you’ll find yourself spending time in blindfolds, walking across broken glass, breaking arrows and breathing intensely whilst laying on the floor in addition to some deep coaching questions, reflective practices and some deep work that will encourage your ability to listen clearly to yourself and others, question your barriers and at times get vulnerable.  Oh, and did I mention that you can opt for a firewalk at the end of day three if you wanted to!

The investment for the three-day Experience starts from £4750 per person plus VAT and expenses if applicable.

So with all this in mind, if any of this has made you want to leave the page already, then this isn’t the experience for you.  But, if the sound of this makes you curious to find out more and excited about the prospect of being taken completely out of your comfort zone, after all, this is where the growth happens, then let’s talk.

You’ll leave the Experience a changed team. You will have a plan of action, aligned to your values and beliefs along with new daily practices and routines that you’ll be committed to for at least the next 66 days. 

You will know what you want and how to achieve it without burning yourself out.

You’ll get more transformation during this three-day intensive than most people could only dream of achieving in 12 months. 

The Core Retreat

5 Day Coaching, Reflection and Yoga Retreat

This five-day retreat combines yoga, powerful coaching questions and reflection to allow you to align not just to your values and purpose, but to your body and mind.

Every day will start with a morning yoga practice that includes some breathing techniques and quiet contemplation.  After breakfast, we’ll spend some time outside each day connecting with our thoughts and considering what the morning practice has brought of you before heading into our group/team coaching sessions.

After lunch we’ll engage in some more group work, questioning and reflecting before our afternoon yoga practice where we’ll end the day before enjoying a dinner together.

The evening will then be your time to do as you wish and will include an optional evening yoga session and guided visualisation before we get our heads down ready for the following day of self-exploration.

Whilst nothing is enforced on this retreat, we invite you join the full experience and withdraw from meat products and alcohol for the week to allow you to be fully immersed in the experience, but this is not compulsory.  We would ask though that if any alcohol is consumed it is done so in moderation so that you are fully switched on for each morning.

If this sounds like the ideal retreat for you, then get in touch and let’s talk.  As each five day retreat is priced per group and prices vary depending on the location of the retreat, you’ll be sent a detailed proposal including pricing when we’ve had some time to explore this together.
