Helping Transform the Isle of Man

Danette and I were interviewed on Manx Radio this week about the Manx Leaders Initiative and how we're helping to build a local, fully self-sustaining program that will transform the island through personal leadership development.

We were joined for the interview by Karl Bovenizer, one of the three founders of Manx Leaders. We spoke about their vision for transforming the island into a 'centre of leadership excellence' through programs Danette and I are helping create for business, government, schools and individuals.

We're currently working with the 4th group to enter the program - and more classes are already scheduled for May. We're also delivering Facilitator training while we're here, so eventually we can step out of the picture and let the Manx people drive everything.

Our Leadership Conversation in Kitchener, Ontario - December 2018.

We had the privilege of speaking to approximately 60 participants, facilitators and management from the Digital Trades School (DTS) in Kitchener, Ontario.

Hosted by our wonderful friend and DTS co-founder Dave Inglis, we chatted about the importance of self-leadership and the need to grow our 'four interior empires' of mindset, heartset, healthset and soulset (created by Robin Sharma in his new book The 5AM Club).

We also shared our thoughts and experiences about lifelong learning as a ritual, plus the urgent need for all of us to build 'Adptability Intelligence' (more on this shortly).

The full conversation (approx. 50 minutes) is available on our You Tube channel.

Isle of Man Leadership Initiative

Last June we met two amazing Manx gentlemen who are passionate about transforming the island into a "Nation of Excellence".

Danette and I were both humbled and very grateful to be invited to help them create  a leadership initiative that will eventually be available to every Manx resident. Here are just a few photos from the inaugural Manx Leaders program in Douglas last week...
