The Nature of Leadership

I was commissioned to help the Eden Project design and develop a new leadership training programme. The Nature of Leadership course has now run successfully since 2016.

In addition to supporting the design process, I also deliver core aspects of the course to Eden’s clients in order to apprentice Eden’s staff for future independent delivery. This apprenticeship approach is supported by ongoing training and coaching of the Eden team.

At a more strategic level I provide consultancy on the development of Eden’s wider HotHouse project, of which the NOL course is a part.

Approaching the beach from the cliff top I had a feeling something profound was going to take place. And when I met Dave it started happening. In just 36 hours I had the best reset I could have imagined and 36-months later I am still enjoying its effects. If you’re reading this and wondering if it’s right for you, just get in touch with Dave and see where life takes you. It helped me and I loved it.

Dave has worked with me and my team for the past few years on team dynamics, programme design, and personal coaching. He is an extraordinary trainer, though that word is a dis-service here, his wealth of experience in the broad fields of outdoor education and facilitated wild experiences is un-paralleled. His attention to detail, subject knowledge, and impeccable research means all learning experiences with him are enlightening, thought provoking, and deeply practical.
