Raconteur Leadership Certification

“Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself.   It is precisely that simple and it is also that difficult.”

Warren Bennis

Many executives think leaders are born, not made. In fact, every leader is uncovered from within.

The Raconteur Leadership Certification is designed to develop coaching skills to guide leaders to success. This program is specifically geared to working with thought leaders, entrepreneurs, business executives, and human resources professionals looking to lead teams into the workplace of tomorrow.

Combining neuroscience and the transformational power of narrative, this course series equips trainees with the tools needed to draw out the intrinsic qualities of leaders to improve their performance and goal achievement. Through a deep dive into leadership styles and the mindsets and values that accompany them, trainees will be prepared to work with clients during any stage of their career journey.
