This programme represents a new and innovating approach to achieving evidence-based Authentic Leadership.
The learning process will benefit all those in leadership roles who have previously experienced skills based development and now wish to expand their horizon by undertaking a challenge that will take their ability to lead people and teams to success in a way that they never thought possible.
AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP ...
Is purposeful, strategic leadership delivered with confidence and clarity.
Maguire Training is delighted to be able to offer this new and powerful progressive approach to Authentic Leadership Development written and developed by Maguire Consultant Dr Tony Fusco, author of 'AN EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACH TO AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT' (Published by Routledge Focus).
This innovative programme is based completely on the research of Dr Tony Fusco and is currently the only evidence-based ALD programme available. It is shown to develop four over-arching key leadership attributes:
CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP ~ that is deliberate and intentional
CONFIDENT LEADERSHIP ~ that is assertive and assured
COMPETENT LEADERSHIP ~ that is skilled and able
CONGRUENT LEADERSHIP ~ that is clear and consistent
Authentic Leadership Group Coaching has been shown to significantly and reliably improve scores on both the validated Authentic Leadership instruments available (ALQ and ALI) but more importantly this powerful group coaching approach to ALD has also been shown to consistently enhance seven key leadership attributes including:

This is not something that can be done by generic training but relies on individual learning. Authentic Leadership then is not something that can be trained into a leader, but is based on personal learning drawn out from them. therefore, the focus of group-coaching is more on individual approaches to leadership, rather than the general principles of leadership. This requirement has led to the development and rigorous evaluation of Authentic Leadership Group Coaching. The research underpinning this approach demonstrates that the learning creates enduring shifts in the leader's understanding and perception of their core leadership self. Such growth and development are essential to genuine authentic leadership. As...
