Leadership Development OLD Not For Use

Freshwaters Leadership

Self leadership is at the heart of our  work. Leadership is a ‘state of mind’ to lead yourself and others that should be valued and nurtured at every level of society.

“This leadership stuff really needn’t be complicated. I believe that leading is a natural, human activity that is a part of all of us. You don’t need a certain IQ or job title to be a leader!” Steve Radcliffe, 2012

Good leadership is the key determinant for the success of individuals, organisations and society . We have a rich resource of leadership learning experiences from around the world which we share .

Learning is at the core of our practise in developing leaders and is the  emotion that transforms a good manager to an extraordinary leader.

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other”
John F. Kennedy

Research shows that today’s dynamic leaders learn their craft through a rich mix of ‘hands-on’ personal life and work based experiences rather than through education qualifications.

It (leadership) isn’t what you learn from a book or at college – its what you learn from experience. I have learnt that leadership is about you and your personality – and communication”
Marion King, President, MasterCard  2013

“Leadership is a personal thing,  must be hands-on, is a work of art.  Leaders must have passion and dreams”

OP Jain, Founder President, Sanskriti Foundation, 2010
