Our Graduates' Description of Their Workshop Environment

The following verbatim quotes come from our program graduates to describe their experience of their workshop environment into which they have entered. This affords you a sense of what we have created to support your change process and obtain your sought-after success as you would define it.

"Non-threatening atmosphere, non-judgmental attitude and behavior..."

"Each format was strategically placed to raise the probability of having a life-changing experience"

"I have never experienced such an environment that can provide the stimulus to change and grow"

"The open, safe environment combined with an insightful flow of experiential, right-brained... along with the academic practical business application"

"Camaraderie and friendships built amongst the team"

"You can't learn certain skills until you have mastered certain others. There is a necessary progression. In that vein...everything was necessary to gain what I was here to gain"

"[Until this workshop] I had never felt taken by the hand and being led to the 'fountain of truth'"

"The camaraderie of the team participants who direct and encourage and teach the learning process under the facilitator's leadership"

"The natural flow of the different components"

"The experiential components were simply powerful and extremely instrumental to my self-awareness and self-understanding."

"Processes allow [you] to get at root cause"

"Getting in alignment with my worth, and taking off those things that have devalued me in the past"

"Unusually safe environment"

"What I found especially beneficial in this unique feedback approach that the Trust uses was the positive atmosphere they created to give negative feedback. I was able to hear it without feeling defensive or criticized. As a manager of over 5,000 people, I had 360° feedbacks done in the past, but this was the first time I really heard what was being said."

Self Awareness Workshop


Please note the following two important qualifiers for the Self-Awareness Workshop:

  1. This workshop is subsumed within the Personalized Leadership Development Program(PLDP). Therefore, the PLDP registrants automatically receive the Self-Awareness Workshop as part of their program.
  2. It is also offered only to family members of our PLDP grads.

Who Attends

Approximately 10 individuals enrolled in the SAW represent people who seek development or intervention or both. Attendees typically:

May be at a crossroads in his or her personal or professional life.

Had a spouse or friend or relative go through the 5-day program and seeks only the self-awareness portion of that workshop.

Are interested in going to the next deeper level in their quest for self-mastery, spirituality, and emotional intelligence (in order to go to the next higher level).

May describe themselves as feeling "stuck" or "in a rut".

Are seeking to enhance their people skills (e.g., appropriate confronting when necessary).

Represent a company for whom the cost of the 5-day program is beyond the budget for that particular individual (often times the case for middle managers).

Seek more meaningful relationships or wish to develop greater intimacy.

Seek a deeper understanding of the interplay of their mind, body, emotions, and spirit.

Seek to make connections among their mind, body, emotions and spirit.

Seek self-improvement through investing in self as the instrument of their leadership as well as those relationships beyond the work setting.

Need to hone their emotional intelligence in order to maintain their competitive edge in our fast-shifting market place.

Are motivated for more and for better and wish to invest in themselves for a better future.

Represent those individuals whose family stressors interfere with work and vice versa.

Participants may represent various proportions of a mix of experienced executives, managers and staff leaders from a broad range of organizations as well as persons from the community on a personal quest for self-improvement. We have found that this offers a more robust quality to this kind of program and attributes to our extraordinarily high ratings. After all, regardless of your work function or title, you work with people beyond your own area and beyond your own position within your own organization.

The Schedule

The two-and-a-half-day Self-Awareness Workshop is offered in two formats to accommodate varying schedules. Weekend formats run from Friday evening through Sunday early evening, and weekday formats run from Monday evening through Wednesday early evening. Specific dates are listed in our section entitled Schedule.

Timeframe for the two and a half days of Self-Awareness: The first day begins at 7 o'clock in the evening and ends around midnight. (Arrangements are made for you to join the participants of the 5-day program for supper.) The second day begins at 9:30 am and ends anytime between 8 and 9 pm, and the third day begins at 9:30 am and ends around 6 pm.


All of the programs are held in North Carolina. Specific information regarding the location and accommodations will be provided at the time of initial inquiry or registration. Due to the nature of the program, participants are asked to reside at the hotel or conference center prescribed by The Leadership Trust® to obtain maximum benefits from the program.


Program fees vary according to multiple factors. First learn if you quality for a scholarship, a scout rate, group rate or special packet rate with payments over time without interest. Representing a non-profit qualifies you for a partial scholarship. Different conference centers’ rates can also impact our own, as well as whether you opt for a weekday VS a weekend program. Our job is to work with you to make it financially possible for you to attend the program of your choice. Call Rachel at 888.313.2570 or email her so that she can walk you through what would be most cost efficient for you.

The Leadership Trust® reserves the right to change the program cost, content, cancellation policy, dates and agenda at any time.

Ninety-eight percent of our participants describe this leadership training program as the best workshop they have ever experienced, and we attribute this rating due in part to our small group size residing at the prescribed conference center throughout the length of the Self-Awareness Workshop (SAW). This affords the necessary, intensive focus underlying our graduates' testimonials.

Upon completion of the SAW, and after having followed our registration requirements and program guidelines, if you are not satisfied with your higher level of self-awareness, we will refund the tuition portion of your payment.
