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.

Dave’s deft touch can be found as traces of invisible thread through many of Eden Project’s experiential learning programmes. He is a gentle and artful consultant that will help you make the most of the resources you have to hand; be it people, places, kit, knowledge, or time. He is equally capable of directing you, unblocking your problems, or simply guiding you towards the right solution for your programme needs.

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.
