Self-Leadership Coaching Program

Do you recognize reactive and limiting patterns in you that obstruct all kind of change efforts?

Do you have the desire to know and live your heartfelt professional purpose?

Do you feel that you have leadership potential and professional talents that are waiting to be fully awakened and expressed?


The Self-Leadership Coaching Program addresses these issues taking into account the complexity of human personality patterns. The program brings together two powerful transformation systems: The values-based The New Leadership Paradigm and Evolutionary Coaching developed by Richard Barrett, and the Internal Family System (IFS) developed by Richard Schwartz. Whether you are leading an organization, a team or working with people as a coach or consultant – developing your capacity to lead from Self (Self-Leadership) is at the basis of more evolved and life-serving interactions with others.


Leaders and managers who are ready to express their full potential through a process of deep inquiry into limiting beliefs and behaviors (reactive patterns) as well as core values and purpose (guiding forces). Coaches, consultants, change agents, and training/HR professionals who are inspired to go deeper, expand their levels of consciousness and be more effective in their roles both with individual clients and organizations.


In a retreat style multi-step learning event you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a personal development journey with others. You are guided and supported by two experienced international coaches through different phases of self-reflection and insights. In preparation, you will be conducting an individual leadership or individual development report assessment. A coaching session with one of the coaches is offered before coming to the retreat.

Please, consider some preparation time for the assessment and some readings before coming to the retreat. We estimate that you will need about 8 h for the pre-work. Further individual coaching sessions with one of the facilitators are possible and recommended.
