Transformational Leadership Capacity: the missing link in leadership and in these extraordinary uncertain and complex times,  Singapore, 3-days in the second part of October, 2017


These are times of unprecedented change in business and world politics.

Are you ready to take a step forward in your leadership? Is your environment requiring increased capacity to manage and navigate in times of stress and uncertainty? Is there scope for you to be more creative requiring more ability to step into multiple stakeholder perspectives? Where is the joy of seeing and acting on more transforming opportunities?  

Do you feel the effects of the growing complexity and uncertainty on your tasks, work environment, and life? Is it increasingly turbulent, unsettling and difficult to stay on top or in control and plan ahead? Do you feel we have lost touch with the human qualities in business?

If you answer ‘yes’ to one or several of these questions, this three-day intensive in the latter part of October will be for you. REGISTER HERE or contact us to get more detailed information. 

If you are curious and maybe unsure, why don’t you come and meet us and test the water in our FREE WEBINAR on March 9th and April 18th.

Studies show serious talent management challenges ahead as the business environment is volatile and increasingly uncertain and complex. CEOs worldwide identify that a different approach is required to succeed in the future, but few are sure about how to approach it.

Amara co-founder Professor William (Bill) Torbert with 40 years of research in Harvard, Yale and Boston College. This shows that only a minority of leaders demonstrate a consistent capacity to innovate and to successfully transform their organisations. PWCs research of 2015 illustrates that those leaders have developed deep mental, emotional and relational capacities to lead complex, systemic change.


Traditional leadership development focuses on competence development and developing skills – What we know. The emerging trend in leadership development (so-called vertical development) focuses on capacity development and mindset transformation –How we know.


People who develop these capacities perform better across mission-critical domains such as:

  • Leading transformational change and inspiring vision
  • Thinking strategically, systemically and contextually
  • Solving conflicts and reframing challenges
  • Building relationships, collaborating and making mutual decisions
  • Dealing with uncertainty and creating innovative solutions
  • Facilitating learning for themselves and others; learning to learn
  • Reaching integrity between wishes, actions and results


Do you aspire to be one of those people? Come and meet us and explore for yourself in our FREE WEBINAR on March 9th or April 18th!
