The 2013-14 Aberdeen Leadership Forum gets under way this month with another journey into the world of authentic leadership and storytelling.

Founded in 2012 by leadership coach Norton Bertram-Smith and narrative consultant Michael Williams, the Forum invites corporate and community leaders to come together to explore their leadership abilities within the context of authenticity, mindfulness and storytelling. The programme is entitled "A Narrative Approach to Transformational Leadership" and consists of seven day-long sessions held over a year in the beautiful rural setting of the Mary Culter Hotel on the River Dee.

"It's a challenging commitment," says Williams, "but the journey is worth it. Participants examine closely their leadership abilities, their values, beliefs and vision for the future. They really come to know themselves and learn to create and tell the stories that express their authenticity."

There are still a few places left on the programme, so if you or someone in your organisation is looking to take your leadership skills to another level, consider joining the Aberdeen Leadership Forum.
