A journey toward transformational leadership

stage 1

Leadership Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP)

We begin by mapping your evolutionary journey as a leader of change.

Recognize your strengths, challenges and areas for growth, becoming more aware of how to tailor your change leadership to your organization’s level of development. This first step is a deep dive into understanding who you are, supported by your coach and reflective practice partner, Kerry Woodcock.

stage 2

ONE-ON-ONE LEADERSHIP COACHING

Gain a better understanding of who you are as a leader through individual coaching.

This one-on-one time with Kerry is just for you, as you continue to reflect on your personal leadership journey. Together with the MAP, this prepares you for the rich inner work we will be doing in the immersive retreat.

stage 2

Immersive Retreat

Explore your evolving change story in the spectacular surroundings of the Costa Brava Coast.

Spend four evenings and four rejuvenating mornings in a private villa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, as you reflect on who you have been, who you are in the moment and who you are becoming as a change leader.

This gorgeous, sun-drenched location with views of sea and shore nourishes your spirit, as you explore what will sustain you in unfolding transformation in yourself and others. 

stage 2

Virtual Reflective Practice Circles

Build on the foundation you have laid, as we reconnect to relish the magical collective energy that is Soul Sala.

We continue to meet virtually each month in courageous and expansive reflective sessions. Indulge in an enlightening space, developing your capacity to be reflective, pre-flective and reflexive – the essential leadership competency of our time. 

stage 2

Soul Sala Illumination Finale

Conclude with a final reflective session on the Equinox.

After a pause to integrate our learning, we meet virtually once more to illuminate the golden threads and weave our stories with our gaze toward the future. Throughout this journey, we have celebrated the changing light through solstices and equinoxes, and inner and outer landscapes.

The heart of Soul Sala is a soul-stirring immersive retreat in the Costa Brava, a place of peace and rugged beauty on the coastline of Spain.

WIKIMEDIA IMAGE | Con Colleano, known as the Wizard of the Wire, was first to successfully perform a forward somersault on tightrope.

Ses Vistes is our gorgeous immersive venue, a luxury villa on the edge of the bay of Port Lligat.

Complete with garden and pool, Ses Vistes is filled with soft light and the fresh scent of sea air. The shared rooms each have a view and an ensuite, and most have walk-out access to the outdoors.

We’ll spend four nights and three full days connecting with the light and shadow within and without, and experiencing its power to transform. The Costa Brava immersion is about listening to fascinations which call you.

The experience in brief

This journey begins with an opportunity to map and challenge your evolutionary journey as a leader, using the Leadership Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP) and the power of individual leadership coaching. The highlight of Soul Sala is an immersive experience in Spain. We’ll spend three days and four nights in a luxury villa in Costa Brava, Spain, connecting with the light within and without, and crossing the edge of our own transformation.

Following the immersive, we will nurture our restorative practice in virtual reflective practice circles filled with story, metaphor and the senses. We reconvene in a final illumination session to integrate our learning.

Soul Sala takes you on a transformative journey, growing your capacity to transform self, others and the world. Throughout the process, you will gain SuperVision — the capacity to see and be seen from an ever more expansive place. You’ll emerge with the ability to refresh and resource yourself in change through a deeply reflective practice.
