This is a holistic and integrative Leadership Training Programme to promote wellbeing and productivity on corporate sites, in financial organisations, mental health organisations, educational forums and other highly driven professional contexts.

The Leadership Training is rooted in the 5DL model developed by global business consultant, Roger Evans, which draws from Transpersonal Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, neuroscientific research, somatic awareness, group dynamic and systems models.

‘…Without developing Self Awareness and our ability to reflect upon ourselves and our thoughts, feelings and behaviours we are almost completely focused outside ourselves – we tend to objectify everything outside ourselves – and are thus controlled by the environment around us, by other people and their thoughts and feelings, by the events of business, of family and of society. In the extreme, without the ability to self-reflect we become in effect victims to the world around us. We react rather than proact and we are not aware that we are doing so! ‘

Roger Evans, 5DL Leadership, uncovering the DNA of Leadership. CLC Publishing, 2019

5 Dimensions to successful leadership:

The 5 key indicators for successful and life-giving leadership:

  • 1DL – Ability to Self-Reflect – Self-awareness,
  • 2DL – Awareness of one’s impact on others, understanding their difference and their group dynamics
  • 3DL – The ability to consistently see the whole picture and the dynamics between the ‘part and the whole’. The art of ‘thinking systemically’ and understanding system forces
  • 4DL – Individual freedom (free will) to both make clear decisions and then to drive delivery in the face of resistance “to be blown in the wind, to bend but to stand firm”
  • 5DL – The ability to ask for appropriate help and support – internally and externally to the organisation

‘It is not the same when one or two are present. All five need to be present to a reasonable extent to ensure the transformation of the individual into a high-quality leader. These leaders are characterised by a vision of the future based upon sustainability and values, by sustainability I mean a much longer perspective to development and growth were appropriate than the short term ‘wins’ of today one that includes the environment and their long term impact upon that, they have a deep understanding of themselves and of the people around them, they have compassion and humility, are innately strong and have the ability to repeatedly deliver and make things happen by bringing people with them.’ (Evans, 2019)

If a leader has all 5DLs plus good organisational knowledge and management skills they will consistently:

  • Build organisations that are sustainable, responsible, honest and transparent
  • Repeatedly deliver organisation strategy and goals
  • Build confidence and wake up tired organisations, divisions, teams and individuals
  • Develop talent and build new leaders at all levels quickly and consistently deliver change appropriately

5DL Coaching Approach

  • The individual leader is helped to become aware of their potential for greatness as a leader as well as the reality of how they act and behave now.
  • This gap between the reality and the potential can be quite big and often is experienced as too hard, too difficult or painful to look at.
  • In this journey of self-awareness, the participant will be encouraged to look a self-belief system and mindsets that keep them stuck or inhibit progress.

Bridging the Gap

  • The individual leader or team is supported in identifying the next realistic and realisable step – S.M.A.R.T. Goal – that will move them along the continuum from what is now towards their potential.
  • They will be guided to engage with their readiness or willingness for making the necessary change.
  • In this process, they will build resilience through accessing their will and ability to will. They will build links in the chain of self-empowerment.
  • Evans advises that these growth steps, ‘need to be big enough to be challenging and small enough to be achievable’.


Participants are given a platform:
  1. To deepen self-awareness and develop a language around their mental, emotional and spiritual health
  2. To develop leadership skills which promote confident self-expression, self-agency, awareness of one’s impact on others and the ability to ask for help
  3. To grow interrelationships through empathic connection and peer support skills in the team context
  4. To deepen listening and communication skills
  5. To manage conflict while fostering a shared vision and purpose
  6. To deepen competency in planning, effective strategy and decision making
  7. To grow resilience and stress management skills including mindfulness and meditation practice

Do you as leader see any of the following?

  • Feelings of tiredness or lethargy on waking up and setting out to work
  • Feeling of stuckness when it comes to dealing with conflict either with an individual colleague or with staff
  • The team slowing down in creativity engagement and output
  • Lingering tensions in the working environment around unresolved conflict
  • A certain despondency in the team when it comes to vision building and strategic planning
  • An apparent stalemate in yourself in the team in regard to decision-making
  • A build-up of anxiety, stress and tension in your body as the day progresses that interferes with your personal time after work
  • Trends of absenteeism in the staff that inhibits productivity
  • A growing dissatisfaction in yourself or leadership team in regard to these patterns
  • The desire in yourself andor your leadership team to increase your resources in addressing these questions

If you have answered yes to two or more of these questions the Raidhse Organisational Leadership Programme could be a fit for you. Please see contact details below.

Research confirms what I have found in my one to one and organisational coaching practice: that those leaders who foster self-awareness, team vision building, empathic inter-relationality and open dialogue reduces conflict, absenteeism and stuckness. Such a calibre of leadership in the workplace and elsewhere increases productivity, boosts morale, inspires creativity and sustainable outcomes. Time and time again in my one to one and corporate teamwork, I see that the symptoms of stress and anxiety indeed require immediate attention in terms of self-regulation and resilience training.

However, these are very often rooted in a deeper sense of disconnection from one’s sense of value, meaning and purpose in the work environment.

The solution lies in a more dynamic multi-layered approach as provided in this programme.

Next Step

We provide an initial consultation where we listen carefully to what is happening for you in your organisation at an individual and team level. As each work environment is different in terms of personalities, culture, history, expectations it is important to have an initial conversation where we can best get a sense of what is happening at the interpersonal level and how best to meet your organisation at the point of need. Also, this will give you a sense of how we work and enable you to help shape the optimum intervention for your particular situation.
