Advanced Leadership

Whitespace offers Advanced Leadership to executives, who are looking to refine their skills and improve their performance. In Business Schools and Psychology Departments the debate, as to whether leaders are born or can be developed, continues apace. Some of the latest research demonstrates that family influences, during early childhood, are important contributors to the development of the self-confidence and charisma associated with good leaders. We take strong leaders and make them more effective. This is not a traditional course of time management and organizational techniques for beginners, but a proven methodology for increased self-awareness, refining visions, discerning strategy and confronting results for the leaders who seek to be great.  Most leaders are named to their position, but great leaders are developed and their followers elect them and willingly demonstrate their commitment by extra efforts.

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.”
 Lao Tzu

Whitespace methodology will take your leaders and make them more aware of their innate qualities and sensitive to their responsibilities and opportunities. Increased concentration and focus is achieved with our techniques, by recognizing and removing emotional upsets and unwanted reactions or what we call, blocks and triggers.  The improved self-awareness from our methodology allows the leader to leverage his communication and define his objectives, without the impediments of anger and disappointment, so frequent in driven individuals.

Whitespace has an internationally experienced team of proven leaders, who can deliver our skill sessions and exercises in groups, with individual analysis and feedback to maximise and reinforce the lessons.  Follow-up and quantifiable results are key reasons, Whitespace can increase your leader’s performance.

Whitespace would be pleased to provide a proposal, tailored to your requirements.

Whitespace offers advisory sessions for both corporate groups and individual executives, who need to confront and indeed, ‘metamorphise’ into a happy and productive entity.  Metamorphosis comes from the Greek, μεταμόρφωσις, to transform, transforming. This is not the typical ‘embrace change’ and ‘overcome team resistance’ to new corporate strategies, but an emotional inventory of the upsets caused by our human proclivity to maintain the homeostatic balance, in other words, stay the same.

Whitespace has developed skill sessions and seminars which help a company define its culture and become conscious of how it interacts with its clients, community and indeed the wider world around us.

All too often the ‘corporate culture’ is synthesised into a mission statement or ‘tag line’ which may be good for marketing, but which is seldom embraced by the employees and largely ignored by the public. We develop awareness and increase the perception of your executives, by taking an inventory of their Spiritual Quotient which we define as their self-awareness as it intersects with the understanding of the company ethic and purpose.

Similar to IQ (Intelligence Quotients) and EQ (Emotional Quotients), we believe SQ can be developed and measured and directly proportional to corporate success

“No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it.”
~ Albert Einstein

Whitespace increases the individual’s self-awareness and develops the corporate consciousness so that problems can be solved and goals can be reached.  One’s place of work can be a source of pride if one understands the articulated vision and contributes to the well-being of the organisation.  This contribution is more effective when readily volunteered and less likely to succeed if only a requirement in a job description.

We look forward to raising your executives corporate consciousness and articulating your visions for the good of your corporate health and the well being of the wider community.

“Innovation in an existing company is not just the sum of great technology, key acquisitions, or smart people. Corporate innovation needs a culture that matches and supports it.”
~ Steve Blank

Whitespace has demonstrated that within each of us is created true genius. The unrealised potential each of us is given, requires a self-awareness and commitment, which few people experience. Genius is defined with words like exceptional, creativity and intelligence and in many cases a rich combination of all those characteristics denotes a genius. Whitespace methodology is able to inventory the moods and emotions, which stifle genius. Dreams are rekindled and spark into intentions, which fan the flames of goals and plans rather than mere thoughts and ideas. The benefits to your company are happier employees who analyse information in greater detail and make decisions with greater accuracy.

“Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.”
~ R. Buckminster Fuller

Would you like us to explore with the executives in your company the characteristics which can develop their Genius? We can tailor a simple methodology which will kick-start the process of becoming a genius.

Are your company’s leaders concerned for the health and well-being of their employees? While most HR managers and company directors would answer with a resounding, YES! The important response should come from the employees, and remember-their perception is the reality-for the overall wellness of the company.

You may have added the workplace fresh fruit basket or given incentives to gym memberships, weight loss programs or fitness regimes, but is the perception of your staff one of a company ethic,dedicated to improved wellness?  Whitespace offers alternative health plans which increase the productivity of the participants as measured by both, their perception and actual workdays, versus absences. Sick days are one of the most difficult workplace problems, but can be tracked; our programs are designed to lower absenteeism and increase the energy for the entire workforce.

Health and lifestyle choices are necessarily a personal decision but the importance of energy, focus and productivity is a matter for management concern.  The hesitation to impose rules or prohibitions is not just a European cultural phenomenon, but a legal concern for most HR departments. Strong corporate guidelines or suggestions as to diet, weight, smoking, alcohol consumption etc. are often accompanied by a skepticism which categorises these legitimate concerns as “nanny state” tactics. Whitespace has a unique approach which has a high level of acceptance and implementation with three areas of focus which can be presented as a complete program or individualised as budgets and participants require.

First, Whitespace uses a revolutionary technology to identify food allergies and digestive deficiencies which can be directly linked to pathological deterioration in particular organs and biological systems of the participant.  Because the examination is non-invasive, using bio-feedback machines, similar to electro cardiograms and galvanic skin response apparatus, participants can receive a personalised report and chose to incorporate some or all of the suggestions.  This is not the normal dietary recommendations to avoid dairy, or gluten or alcohol, which are hugely over-emphasised in well-being literature. An example, may be to avoid citrus and nuts in order to avoid decreased circulation, which will help mitigate headache frequency and intensity in the majority of sufferers. The stated goal of this examination is to identify food sensitivities and dietary deficiencies resulting in personalised recommendations which can be implemented in whole or partially with immediate and increasing well-being for the participants.

Second, Whitespace conducts a sleep quality interview.  Insomnia, to some degree, occurs in the majority of adult humans. This is not just, avoid caffeinated drinks after 4pm. suggested life hacks, but an in depth analysis of how much and how restful is your employees’ normal sleep.  Discussions of sensory disturbances such as sounds, and lights and smells which may inhibit sleep, will help your employees chose the optimum conditions for an energy renewing rest period. The dividends of increased productivity from well rested employees is the obvious benefit to our program.

Third,  Whitespace works with experts in vitamin and dietary supplements to offer a personalised regime of energy enhancing recommendations.  Your company may wish to subsidise or offer our discounted purchase plans to your employees.  All of our supplements are vegan approved and of the highest quality. Your employees immune systems deserve the mitigation that a few well chosen supplements can guarantee.  The science behind our recommendations is well-documented and the expected results are personalised for the participants.

If you would like to increase the energy and productivity of your employees while reducing sick days and low-performance attendance, please connect with us for a plan designed to demonstrate the care you have for your company’s health and well being. All of Whitespace recommendations have been endorsed by traditional medical practitioners and are complementary to prescribed medicines and cures.  As always your physician should be consulted and involved with any medical concerns you may have.

S.A.S.S.Y.Y. WOMEN is an acronym for the Whitespace offering designed to help ladies achieve Self Assured, Self Starting, Yin and Yang training. The cultural prohibitions preventing women from excelling in non-domestic roles, requires an understanding of the male and female energies found in each of us. The self awareness and communication skills developed in our program are designed to shatter the glass ceiling which continues to be constructed and supported by inhibited women. We have worked with several universities in formalised educational settings, to deliver programs designed to enhance the performance of their female students.

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” – Anais Nin

For Whitespace participants in the S.A.S.S.Y.Y. program, it is not about seeking equality but expanding the courage which contributes to the creativity and success in one’s professional life. Unlike many programs which attempt to level the business playing field and teach competition and games, we embrace the differences and inspire the passion of defined intentions, which foments independence.

If you would like Whitespace to adapt a S.A.S.S.Y.Y. program for your organisation, we would be pleased to discuss your goals?
