“At first I was intrigued by the offered methodology by Oxford Leadership (of whom I haven’t heard much before joining the course) which is designed around self discovery through an investigation. I like that since there’s nothing artificial imposed on my. The methodology suggests that my purpose is sitting somewhere there deep-rooted in my personality. After joining the course and going through the necessary steps I found some things which I didn’t consider before and I must admit that just by finding those things I instantly got an energy bump in my daily life as if I found a source of energy. Highly recommend this course!”

“I’ve been through many high-end executive coaching, training and personal leadership programmes. What shocked me about this one was how incredibly sharp and insightful the resulting action plan was in terms of my vision, values and actions. The short, engaging and impactful videos created the space to go inwards. I intend to bring all new hires through this process as part of their development plan.”
