Beginning Thursday July 15 – THRIVING LEADERSHIP – Twelve-week program (ONLINE)

Presented by Steve Brophy for New leaders, Young leaders, Middle Management and/or Experienced leaders new to a position


Being of service to others in leadership is an honourable and demanding gift many of us give to the world. We push ourselves to our limits and often at the expense of our own health and well-being. Our endgame is thriving. And this is achieved through a long game approach to leadership. The long game includes:

– Sustainable habits that refill our tank each and every day.

– A rich suite of thinking tools to move through challenging situations

– The setting of clear boundaries

– Support in the form of community and dialogue

This program is designed to be your support crew along your leadership journey. Your experiences and interactions in leadership will be used as conversation starters for our group calls. As the wise elder Thomas Moore would say, “Metamorphosis doesn’t happen without our artful participation.”

Program Content

Self-sustaining practices for the leadership long game

  • The best leaders put their own oxygen mask on first. How we recover from the work we do determines our longevity and capacity to thrive and grow. We will focus on recovery and daily rituals to manage our responses to the stressors of leading. This will help you build an extensive suite of evidence-backed, practical tools to apply daily to navigate stress and achieve more flow at work.

Sensemaking models to navigate complexity

  • Mental models enable leaders to view situations from multiple vantage points. New perspectives can help navigate the tumultuous seas of complexity and generate insights and new directions to travel. How we map the terrain of our work environment is critical to our success as a leader.

Accountability and goal setting

  • Each leader will determine their endgame goal and publicly share this. Behavioural strategies in combination with an accountability partner will assist with the achievement of these goals.
