… is the Next Level in Leadership Development

Neuroscience proves what is modelled matters most, and experience teaches that people who transform systems create impact by their very presence. These visionary leaders inspire new actions in their 3rd degree supporters. With over 30 years of experience transforming the lives of senior executives in a practical and transformative manner, Dr Gene Early explores the challenges all leaders face: inspiring teams, delivering effective feedback, managing emotions in tough situations, developing trust, conflict, performance management, managing stress and overwhelm. This is often created by

‘The 5 Deadliest Leadership Sins’.

Gene’s approach leads the way in Leadership from the Inside Out.

What is a Transformational Leader?

An identity…grounded in a mindset/worldview…manifested in behaviors…that consistently produce substantive, irreversible changes in identity of followers and of systems being addressed by the leaders.

A Leader:

Character and values inviting identification.

With Vision:

Creating purpose and meaning that moves a group toward a common goal.

Tapping Potential:

Releasing energy, creativity, and contribution in followers.

Through Empowerment and Recognition:

Honouring and developing each person and their contribution.

Capture this rare opportunity to engage with a heart-centered leader who has studied it, lived it, and most importantly knows the structure of how to enable you to do so too.

 Gene is one of those rare leaders who has more than an engaging presence; he masterfully enables you to further develop your own.

Sue Knight, best-selling author of NLP at Work
