what our delegates say...
"The most inspiring professional programme I've ever attended. Lead by an engrossing team with a flair for creative learning. I still reflect on the day several months on. Highly recommend the LDD to any forward thinking professional.
Leadership Unleashed has been one of the most positive experiences of my career. My most compelling insight from the whole programme - is that it is all about authenticity. I had rather lost sight of passion over the years of being a manager, burying the original passion for culture that I brought into the sector. Leadership Unleashed has shown me that recapturing that passion and bringing beliefs together at the heart of what I do might be a new way to make things happen."
"Mark and his team created an atmosphere that was sympathetic, generous and collegial.
I was most humbled by the depth and breadth of creative thinking amongst my fellow participants – from both the commercial and creative sectors. Each session I had revelatory conversations, often with people I would have least expected it from."
" I loved the "Ooooo-aaahhhhh" moments – the firework moments of clarity and comedy.
I was in awe of those I encountered. I had a real sense that I was often in a room with people who we will be seeing in the headlines in the coming years for advocating for their causes/ organisations, for services rendered and for their sheer brilliance."
"Leadership Unleashed was a fantastic opportunity which came at what feels like the right time for me. Mark and Stephen set up supportive and friendly sessions that also were subtlely challenging. The sessions brought me back to life. I found they helped to consolidate and make me understand my approach better. I have recommended Leadership Unleashed to so many people – it has been a fantastic opportunity to work with [the People Create team], meet an amazing range of people and work through the modules together.
I am also considering my next Leadership move – for me this is a process and I will always be learning! In the meantime, I'm handling difficult issues better and feeling more passionate about my work."
"Mark's gentle but perceptive style really made me face up to what I needed to do. Also, his talk through of various analysis tools gave me the time to realise what I needed to do to take myself and my business forward but also what the barriers (all self-imposed) were. Thanks to Mark I have the basis for taking both myself and my consultancy to a point of maturity. All archivists should have to go on this course! Thanks Mark for a really valuable day.
The session was invaluable to me as a freelance creative and cultural professional. Based on inspiring and grounded values, the course provides tools and strategies to build on and uncover personal 'leadership' strengths. The opportunity to reflect on your position, your values, your behaviour, your aspirations (for yourself and for others), reassured me that this course understood that leadership was as a responsibility to yourself as much as anyone else.
I would highly recommend it, as a unique and incomparable mode of development."
