Essence of Leadership

This leadership program will support increased cooperation and synergy, greater productivity, more empathetic communications, bolder and more courageous decisions, a better understanding of emotional intelligence and improved morale. And all of that leads to greater efficiency, effectiveness, and powerful action.

3 Components of Conscious Leadership


We give a new definition to courage. We are redefining what it takes to be a courageous leader. Be bold and stand up for what's right! We help you find your true self, stand in your own power, and hold your head up with integrity.


We support you to learn how to access your compassion for others and create a cycle of empathy instead of a cycle of ego. We give you tools to really hear other people and go behind the words to help build trust with one another. This also helps you to become more self-aware of your own verbal and non-verbal messages, and how those communications impact outcomes.

Emotional Intelligence

Fight, Flight and Freeze reactions are generated from our past experiences and can be relearned, to respond instead of react in stressful situations. When leaders “unlearn” their past reactions and are taught how to respond in new, more beneficial ways, everybody wins. We support you to develop more skills for controlling and managing overwhelming stress, therefore becoming more effective communicators and leaders.

    • After my team attended Burge’s Team Building course, our communication was better with each other and we were able to resolve conflicts and come to resolutions easier. We trust each other more and our increased awareness has made us more productive.

    • Essence of Courageous Leadership was one of the most fun and memorable workshops I have ever attended. It gave me new views and beliefs around business and allowed me to be open to receive more of what I wanted from all possibilities. Just a couple of weeks after the training, I received a promotion and increased my sales by 50%!
