It’s a fascinating yet challenging time to be a leader. We are in the midst of an old system dying and a new one being born, all amid unceasing transformation – change upon change upon change is the new-norm.  Yet as the genius Einstein knew, when we look deep in to nature we understand everything better; we see with new eyes and bring a different quality of consciousness to the solutions than that which created the problems in the first place.

Through over a decade of working on regenerative leadership and nature-based coaching, I have developed a range of practices, coaching-frames and processes that aid the journey of becoming a next-stage future-fit leader.

On Thursday 23rd May-Friday 24th May 2024, I will host a special nature-based leadership immersion providing an embodied experience of Leading by Nature – The Process of Becoming A Regenerative Leader.

Two-day Deep-dive – Thursday 23rd/Friday 24th May – price £800 per person

This two-day overnight deep-dive is for leaders and practitioners who already have already started to embark on the regenerative journey, perhaps through reading, reflecting, wintering, practicing it through work, and/or attending courses and journeys, or perhaps already attending a workshop at Springwood Farm.  We shall be exploring the embodiment of regenerative leadership consciousness and providing advanced tools and techniques for your own work as a leader and for practitioners/coaches working with clients/leaders and regenerative L&OD.

About Springwood Farm: a mix of semi-ancient and ancient woodland with wildflower meadows, 60 acres in total, private and secluded specially designed for advanced leadership coaching work, see some pictures here: https://www.leadershipimmersions.com/gallery

After 14 months of lockdown, I joined Giles and others on a ‘Leadership Immersion’ at Giles’ magical and awe-inspiring 60 acre ancient woodland in West Sussex.   Having read his last book – Regenerative Leadership, I had high expectations. They were surpassed, magnificently.

Giles took us on a journey that saw complete strangers enter into a state of connection, high trust and intimacy – in a matter of hours.    We emerged nourished, energised, connected, centred and better equipped to deal with the challenges of life in the early ‘20s.    For those seeking answers around their personal and professional development – I can’t recommend Giles and his work highly enough. Richard Tyre, CEO of Good People

‘Giles’s blends business expertise, deep connection with nature and our living environment and experience in transformation, helping us think differently and progressively about work and organisational intent. He is magical in his ability to generate ‘safe spaces’ for conversations that matter’Caroline Gosling, Director, Rubica
