"The LDF has opened my awareness on how I make sense of the world in a truly transformative way. My profile provided deep insight into my own leadership potential and the authorisation training helped me to easily translate the model and approach to others through my coaching and facilitation practice. Would recommend as a “must have” in the leadership toolbox.”

Sophi Bruce, Senior Specialist in Leadership Development, Institute of Public Policy, UTS Australia 


"This is a must do experience for anyone interested in developing themselves and others at a deeper, transformational level."
