The Heroine’s Journey Series

About The Heroine’s Journey Series

True creative leadership is a surprisingly rare ability, so much so that it can be tempting to regard it as innate, and consider those who possess it as somehow ‘born to lead’. Yet in truth, leadership is defined by a set of specific storytelling skills – skills like creative confidence, purpose, persuasion and resilience – that can be taught and developed over time. With organisations becoming less and less hierarchical and the changing technological and economic landscape posing a host of new challenges, mastering the skills of creative leadership has never been more difficult – or more vital.

That’s why we created the Heroine’s Journey Series: a dedicated programme of workshops for existing and aspiring creative leaders – founders, co-founders, managers, creative officers, artistic directors, design leads, innovation executives and entrepreneurs – from The Heroine’s Journey for Business. The series consists of specialised, expanded versions of our regular creative business workshops, focusing on the 7 core storytelling skills all effective managers require, and placing particular emphasis on how they impact the management of employees and teams.

Each workshop is 3 hours long (rather than the usual 2), covering each skill in greater depth at a more advanced level with added time for exercises and discussion. They’re designed not only to teach you the fundamental skills of management, but to provide you with the means for instilling those same skills in others within your organisation. Whether you’re new to management, searching for ways to improve, or looking to train the creative leaders of the future, the Heroine’s Journey Series is a crash course in the fundamentals of effective command.

The Leader’s Story
By examining the history of leadership, this workshop highlights the challenges modern-day leaders face, how our own particular strengths and weaknesses affect our ability to lead, and how we can inspire others to grow as leaders as well as ourselves.
