Beyond Leadership


In the last 30 years, there has been an increased interest in personal introspection and inward leadership, perhaps due to communication technologies spreading messages across an ever-wider footprint.

When we understand the construct of reality according to our own filters, we are offered a different path to go beyond our idea of stories and beliefs.

AO Studio invite leaders and individuals to go deeper and explore their inward leadership in this beyond leadership series. 

Today, when the world is on fire and people are at war with themselves and with others, being loosely attached to our identity or sense of self can bring a different perspective on what life can be. As a result we can become more loving, and more compassionate with ourselves and with others. 


The StructureS of Narratives

 A program from the Unlearning University

Stories are tyrannies in our minds through our emotions and in our work through media and the content we consume. Stories create expectations and lead us into conformity.

Rethinking the Structures of Narratives is a simple approach to truly living that emphasizes self-knowledge through self-understanding.

The only thing keeping you, your team and your organization stuck are your personal, business and brand stories.
