Leading Culture Change Programme

“And this our life, exempt from public haunt, Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, Sermons in stones, and good in everything”.


What the Programme is about:

This is a programme about regeneration and renewal. It invites participants to leave behind ingrained approaches and discover what will truly nourish them and their organisations. This is a cultural leadership programme through the power of myth and drama.

As You Like It focuses on a group of disaffected members of a troubled court who have sought refuge in the Forest of Arden. In this natural setting, they have time to reflect, grow and rethink established ways of doing things. This enables them to return to court and establish a more enlightened regime.

As with the forest in the play, this programme provides space for members of an organisation to go deeply into themselves, exploring new possibilities and accessing previously untapped resources. They return to their working roles renewed and revitalised.


Who is it for?

  • Organisations that have become bogged down in constrictive approaches and practices
  • Leaders seeking to identify and change aspects of their working cultures that have become unsustainable
  • Groups seeking to get ‘back to the roots’ of their organisations and their purposes


What does the Programme deliver?

  • An opportunity to step back from day to day activities to discover what truly matters to a business or organisation.
  • Techniques for becoming more present and more open to future possibilities
  • Creative tools for forging deep, shared visions and meaning

“It is great to use Shakespeare in this way…it releases us to be creative and really change the future."



This programme is all about authenticity: the more leaders are willing and able to be authentic – to deepen the congruence between inner and out experience – the more others are able to give them trust, support and discretionary effort.

The initial stages of leadership are inevitably concerned with proving oneself and externally validated achievement. Yet, the more mature stages – beyond the hero – are concerned with legacy and service.
