Spirited Leadership has been inspiring New Zealand leading professionals since 1984. Our 'Leadership with Smart and Soul' approach embraces both academic knowledge and the principles of Holistic Intelligence™. Because we keep our feet firmly in the day-to-day we have a clear understanding of the demands and challenges that leaders face within their continually changing work environments.
Our philosophy revolves around the belief that you can develop spirited leadership by growing emotional intelligence as well as tapping into the wisdom of your heart. That’s why our approach goes far beyond offering the standard set of management tools. We help you in uncovering, exploring and expanding your inner most self and allowing authentic leadership to unfold within you.
Unlock your people’s potential by growing your self-awareness and unearthing your authentic leader within.
In the 30+ years of working as spirited leaders we have seen hundreds of professionals entering our doors dispirited and exhausted due to the pressure of high workloads, painful restructuring, performance management, risk aversion and short-term thinking. After attending our leadership programmes, 98% of participants leave feeling restored, resourced and inspired to create an organisational culture that is alive and nurtures everyone's talents.

Your programme leads
Leaders make leaders. We believe that the best way to becoming a spirited leader is for you to experience authentic listening and responding to people and situations. The spirited leadership teaching style is rooted in modelling what we believe in. In each of our programmes you'll see how we practice transparency, presence and focus. We model flexibility and work with what surfaces in any particular moment. You'll also see us offer clarity in order to help you make sense of our models and approaches, and you’ll notice how we create a safe, open environment for our participants to explore, experiment and expand.

As Spirited Leaders we believe that genuine inner change is achieved by exploring, challenging and feeding both the mind and the heart. Working with our Holistic Intelligence™ model naturally results in changing attitudes and highly effective positive thinking and behaviour.
If you are spirited in your leadership, your views shift dramatically:
- You can let go more and trust your people to work collaboratively with you and each other.
- You embrace wholeness and encourage your people to be truly themselves rather than playing a stifling workplace role.
- You can see your organisation as a living entity with its own energy, sense of direction and calling to manifest its purpose in the world.
As a spirited leader you inspire and encourage your people to create a soulful workplace where everyone’s talents are nurtured and their deepest aspirations are honoured.
Wherever you are in your leadership journey, we can help you choose from our 3 Smart & Soul programmes:
1. Still Waters: grow your people potential and yourself through coaching &
mentoring and expand self-awareness and emotional intelligence.
2. Moving Mountains: foster your team's potential and create a feedback culture that nurtures everyone's talents and inspires your team to grow together.
