“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”  John C. Maxwell

Why is this important?
There are so many reasons why leadership is important it’s hard to pick just one, it all depends on the individual, what they want to achieve and the context they are operating in – it’s complicated! What is clear is that leadership is needed for organisations to succeed and grow.  Living in times of rapid and increasing rate of change, the capacity of people to sense and respond has never been more important.

How do we help with this?
The future is uncertain, other than it will be different from the past.  So how to prepare for what we don’t know?  By developing the meta-skills that allow people to manage and lead change. Skills such as communication, self-awareness, emotional intelligence and critical-reflexivity.  The Spey Leadership Journey provides an exciting opportunity to explore what leadership means and how we can provide authentic leadership to navigate organisations to sustainable futures.

What will happen?
The Spey Leadership Journey is a three day descent of the River Spey by canoe using the path of one of the most majestic rivers in Scotland to inspire and shape our story.  This is an immersive experiential journey that provides the opportunity to push the leadership boundaries, see the world from a very different perspective and hone leadership skills in a real-life context.

The programme has generic themes around sustainability, high performing teams, building resilience, emotional intelligence and negotiating complex environments that sit alongside the flexibility to cater for and focus on individual perspectives and needs, ensuring that participants gain learning and development that is relevant to them and the contexts they work in.

Who should attend?
The Spey Leadership Journey is aimed at experienced managers.  The programme will aid their continued professional development and offers an opportunity to assist individuals with achieving their business goals through a 360 style appraisal, group coaching and support.
