A three-day development programme, tailored especially for business leaders
We know that the pandemic has brought with it unprecedented challenges. As a result, the pressure on businesses has been magnified. Business leaders have had to adapt to rapidly changing conditions and manage the difficulties of staff working remotely.
That’s why we have developed ‘Leadership in a Changing World’, a three-day programme in Mallorca’s idyllic Tramuntana mountains.
This tailored programme will give you the time, space, energy, and opportunity to reflect on the recent past, revisit what’s important to you personally and professionally, and realign yourself with your priorities. As a result, you’ll leave with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and greater clarity, and most importantly, with less on your agenda, as you focus on the aims and objectives that you’re excited by and committed to.
How to flourish as a leader
Of all the critical things in a business, you, as its leader, are the most important. Therefore, each day of the programme includes facilitated leadership development sessions where we will explore:
Flourishing as a person and a leader
Reviewing your vision, values and purpose
Identifying and developing your strengths
Devising a personal growth strategy
Self-awareness and self-management techniques
Building resilience and counterbalancing stress
Transitioning away from lower-value activities
Engaging with your team.
Why choose ‘Leadership in a Changing World’?
Our programme has been developed with SME business owners in mind. Our experience working with business leaders has shown how easy it is to lose sight of your original vision and passion for success. How easy it is to become over-involved in the day-to-day running of the business rather than focusing on giving the business strategic direction.
‘Leadership in a Changing World’ offers the perfect opportunity to step back and reassess. We will support and guide you through this process using our coaching expertise. There will be a maximum of 20 people on the programme – sufficient to make our discussions lively and stimulating but small enough to ensure individual attention.
For three days, let your team look after your customers, your suppliers, the day-to-day hassles and problems, and all those emails, whilst you focus on the most important person in your life – you.

Hotel S’Olivaret is a traditional Mallorcan hotel, set in a rural, wooded area in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains. The location offers a combination of tranquillity and inspiration. This 4-star eco-friendly hotel has an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna, and an outdoor pool with views of the surrounding mountains.
Mallorca is only a short flight from the UK, and the hotel just a 30-minute-taxi ride from Palma de Mallorca airport.
To do your best thinking, you need to feel relaxed and inspired
In addition to our facilitated leadership development sessions, there will be optional guided walks in the surrounding countryside, meditation and mindfulness sessions, plus free time to take advantage of the hotel’s wellbeing treatments, swimming or relaxing by the pool, and fine dining.
The formal and informal agenda will help move you to a place where you can identify the activities in your life that you need to reduce or eliminate and identify the areas that will deliver you the best results and bring you greater fulfilment and joy.
You’ll come away with a clear idea about how you can succeed in all aspects of your business and your life.
