Why attend  this training?  

We are all Leaders – both in a personal and professional capacity. Whether you have a team or not, there’s at least one person you are always accountable to lead – YOU!  

Are you leading the life you want in all spheres of life? Or are you led by your circumstances? If you’re not sure of the answer, then further ask these questions. 

  • Do you doubt if you are doing well professionally? 
  • Do you feel your work is not contributing to your/your organization’s growth? 
  • Do you doubt your capabilities when leading a big project or a team? 
  • Do you feel you are too slow in ticking off your life’s goals?  


If you answered ‘yes’  to any of these questions, then this training is the right jump-start for you. Each session in this series aims to train you to become the leader you can look up to. 

This “flipped-classroom” style free training course will help you develop your own personal and collaborative leadership skills. You will also be setup to facilitate this training course with your own group – for free.

Training Details

Flipped Class: The class will be not a typical lecture. Éamonn will flag pre-reading materials (from the book) in advance – and the class will be Q&A and discussion. You bring your questions, comments and thoughts to the class. We will help each other through the topics.

Confidentiality: Whatever you ask or say in class will stay in class. As such, the sessions will not be recorded.
