“The essence of leadership is energising people to become better human beings and more productive team members. Four Quadrant Leadership emphasises the importance of empathic relationships and of clearly communicating task assignments as a basis for improving leadership effectiveness. The practice of Four Quadrant Leadership not only improves leadership, it strengthens teams as well.” John Staedke, Past World President, Hitachi Data Systems

Wilfred Jarvis Founder of Four Quadrant Leadership

Wilfred Jarvis totally captivates his audiences with an authority and wisdom seldom seen today. In stark contrast to the very ‘I’ centred style of so many managers today, Wilfred continues to demonstrate a very genuine empathy, empowering authority and compelling modesty. It is these very behaviours that are the essence of the Four Quadrant Leadership message.

Wilfred Jarvis is a world-renowned behavioural scientist providing consultancy to senior executives in mainland USA, Canada, South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. This course provides the opportunity to be captivated by this insightful man and his powerful message about how to be a true leader through consistently demonstrating the principles and practices of Four Quadrant Leadership Stage 1.

If you are not familiar with Four Quadrant Leadership or the work of Wilfred Jarvis, we can guarantee that experiencing this programme will be something to be remembered and will provide tools to vastly improve your leadership capability. We commend to you this opportunity to have the master, himself, present this seminar in person.
