Challenging Leaders

None of us is smarter than all of us

When was the last time you felt truly supported AND challenged by people you really trust?

“One of the biggest challenges a CEO has is that everyone looks to them for all the answers and being able to share your thoughts with someone removed from your business can be nigh on impossible. I sceptically attended a Challenging Leaders session and found that people were able to talk openly about their issues and get quality feedback from the group. I found it a very useful experience and something that most CEO’s would benefit from.”

Your meetings

We aim to facilitate your growth and development beyond your aspirations in a safe, supportive, challenging and diverse environment.  We believe that these aims will be more consistently achieved with true diversity, be it gender, ethnicity or sector in any of our peer groups.

Each group meets monthly for half a day (4 hours).

As your group forms and bonds you will spend more time on the meat of each other’s issues and so the value that each member receives from the group meetings grows exponentially.

Being held accountable at this month’s meeting for what you actually did as a result of the help the group gave you on your strategic challenge last month is often the difference between grasping the nettle and procrastinating for another month or 12.

There is an expectation that you will change groups at least once during your journey with us.

Between group meetings you have the option of a monthly 1:1 with your group Chair.
