An Invitation to Self Discovery

As a leader, have you ever considered the following questions: 

* How can I bring my best self to the situations I face?  

* How do I have the right impact on those I lead, and help those around
   me also adapt to new ways of working?

* What are the practices that I need to develop for my own improved
   performance and wellbeing as well as for others?

* Why are the old management rules no longer applicable, and what are
   the new alternatives?


As we embark on a new era of business leadership, focusing on the power of the leader's inner game,  Potential Project together with Unilever invite you to a unique retreat that will give you with the space to reflect deeply on these critical questions. 


Successful leadership today requires a greater focus on self discovery, through a process of reflection, connection and self-awareness. Designed by leaders for leaders, this retreat is an invitation to do exactly that - to support you in discovering the power of the inner game and to accelerate a new era in business leadership.

with the 


To be an effective leader requires us
not to do more,
but to be more.

More of our 
authentic selves. 

Using our 

full capabilities.

What previous Unilever participants have to say about this retreat/experience:

Inspiring, motivating, thought provoking & challenging'

'A new perspective on leadership and the journey of self-discovery'

'Mind bending, inspirational and transformational. I can lead better, now.'

'I have a list of personal actions to BE a better leader now and some tools to become a better person and a greater leader in the future.'

I arrived feeling chaotic and frazzled, left feeling energised, renewed and inspired to achieve more for the organisation and myself.

An oasis of renewal and reflection. Key to modern leadership development'

'Hard to remember a more worthwhile 24 hours in my career'

The rules of leadership have changed yet so many leaders are struggling with the fundamental demands of the role and what exactly is expected of them. The unending complexity

of business means that the old model of command and control has

long since past its sell by date while countless surveys show that employee dissatisfaction with leadership has never been higher. What we have is a crisis of leadership. 


Our first task in this new world is not doing, but undoing. Undoing beliefs, attitudes, behaviours and habits that no longer serve us and then replacing them with a more authentic, people-centric model of mindful leadership. This retreat will explore how to develop the inner game, characterised by purpose, personal mastery and agility to better serve you, your people and your organisation. 


Meet Your Hosts

The Inner Game of Leadership will be led by a world-class team of highly experienced 
industry leaders from the worlds of business, consulting and corporate training.
