Authentic Leadership

Part 1-2: One or Two Day Workshop

Suited Monk Authentic Leadership begins with a one to a two-day workshop designed to help leaders become more self-aware and authentic

The one to two-day workshop will provide leaders with a set of practical tools and an understanding of themselves that will enable them to lead from within.

This includes:

  • closing the external and internal GAP to be more authentic
  • develop strategies for open-mindset
  • increased self-awareness regarding personal leadership strengths and areas for development
  • managing emotions when under pressure
  • increase the quality of decision making

Part 3: Executive Coaching

To support leaders on their ongoing journey, we provide those who require it with one on one coaching support for a three-month period. These coaching sessions are designed and arranged on an individual, case-by-case basis and are set up to ensure you receive the help required to powerfully integrate the learning received from the two-day workshop. Move your leaders…

Delivery: The authentic leadership workshop will combine an introduction of tools by the facilitator with one-on-one, team, and group discussions to help participants reflect. The delivery of the workshop will be a facilitative approach to help people think for themselves rather than a teaching approach. The facilitator Raf Adams is an Advanced Certified Coach, Co-founder of Good Leaders online, and author of two books, Suited Monk and Suited Monk Leadership. Raf Adam’s approach in workshops and expertise is self-awareness in life and leadership.

Ideally, before the workshop, Mr. Adams would like to conduct phone interviews with 3-to 5 selected participants to understand their current mindset and level of self-awareness.


Final Insight

  • Every member of your team has a gap between his Monk and the Suit. For some, this gap is narrow, for others wide.
  • The purpose of the Suited Monk Leader program is to ensure this gap narrows and ideally disappears.
  • The obvious objective and result for the individual are less stress, feeling happier while for the team and organization it brings more trust and collaboration.
