The LDF Authorisation Intensive

LDF Authorisation Training Intensive - "a rich fusion of professional and personal development"

The workshop enables participants to be authorised to use the powerful Leadership Development Framework and profile to support the development of leaders by: 

  •  developing an in-depth understanding of the Leadership Development Framework
  •  learning how to use the LDF as a powerful way of developing others
  •  learning how to use the Leadership Development Profile in coaching individuals
  •  understanding better their own development 'frame' and agenda
  •  working collaboratively with others in exploring the uses and ethical considerations of this framework.

"The LDF has opened my awareness on how I make sense of the world in a truly transformative way. My profile provided deep insight into my own leadership potential and the authorisation training helped me to easily translate the model and approach to others through my coaching and facilitation practice. Would recommend as a “must have” in the leadership toolbox.” Sophi Bruce, University Technology Sydney

"This is a must do experience for anyone interested in developing themselves and others at a deeper, transformational level."  Rebecca Stevens, Independent Coach. 

The next Authorisation Training Intensives take place in Melbourne, Australia on the 10 - 12th March, at West Dean College, Chichester on the 4 - 6th May 2020 or online during June 2020.  To book contact Lynn.
