Leading for Good

Leading For Good logo

Leading for Good is an online leadership development programme for those who want to generate positive change – whether in their organisation, their community, or the world around them. It involves learning in, with and from nature and is based on our Holistic Leadership model

Everyone can be a leader, regardless of position or role. Leading For Good will help you to:

  • Explore your own narrative about what it means to be a leader

  • Address any barriers that may get in your way

  • Take a journey from inner awareness to outer expression

  • Identify and understand your sense of purpose

  • Act on it to make a difference to your own life, the lives of others or the world at large.

  • Engage with nature’s wisdom

  • Leave the programme feeling confident about your leadership and your ability to make a positive difference in the world. 

"Initially motivated to join and look at my role in leadership it's actually given me so much more.  I now see how leadership affects all aspects of my life.  It's made me reconnect with the wisdom of nature and see the light and shade of leadership." 
Sarah Abdy, HR & Admin Manager, Gaia House Trust


You’ll gain...

  • Clarity about your purpose, vision and personal leadership path

  • Practical tools, skills and knowledge to help you on your way

  • A caring community of fellow participants who will both support and challenge you

  • The energy and inspiration to move forward in a way that aligns with your values and the essence of who you are


"Connecting with nature has been such a powerful tool, helping me to explore and challenge patterns of behaviour, develop a new senseof purpose and build the confidence to take on challenges and be an effective leader" 
Annie Surtees, Greenspace and Streetscene Manager, Salford City Council

Facilitated by Nicki Davey and Penny Gundry, Leading for Good combines online and self-managed activities which take place over a 5-month period including:


  • 6 online workshops/gatherings

  • 3 one-to-one coaching sessions using the Bead Trail® technique

  • Nature-based learning activities (learning in, with and from nature)

  • Completing a TetraMap® profile

  • Self-directed creative activities 


Through these activities you’ll develop your inner awareness, identify and address your own narrative about yourself and about leadership, discover and use a range of practical skills and techniques, and access your unique gifts and talents in order to make a difference.  You’ll connect with who you are and what matters to you and translate this into a personal purpose or vision that enriches your own life and the lives of others.
