The Inner Citadel is a Stoic concept, made famous by writers like Seneca and Marcus Aurelius, that describes an inner unshakeable peace, your foundation for good decisions and effective leadership.
At Inner Citadel Consulting we provide people culture and leadership solutions to organizations and individuals. If you are anticipating or trying to manage complex change, or worried about depth and flexibility in your leadership team, or struggling to be an inclusive and empathetic leader in the middle of massive disruption and adversity, Inner Citadel Consulting will help you unravel the complexity of the issues that brought you to us and provide focused, actionable plans to build your own inner citadel.
The pandemic has made it clear across all sectors that effective leadership depends now more than ever on careful management of emotions, on self-awareness, non-reactivity, broad thinking, perspective taking, and cognitive agility, as well as the management and valuing of a distributed workforce. There is simply no more tolerance built into the system for ineffective leadership at any level. Leadership models must shift to meet the needs of the disrupted workplace and organizations must adapt to the changing needs of the people they serve and employ.
With evidence-based EI evaluation, development planning, and executive coaching, informed by deep roots in Stoicism and a positive psychology approach, Inner Citadel Consulting can help you and your team build the emotional intelligence competencies that promote inclusion, reduce conflict, sustain efficiency, and build a positive workplace culture. Lead with empathy – affirm diversity.
Notice. Engage. Empower. These are the three stages of self-development in the Stoic tradition and the three steps to sustained solutions for inclusion, talent development, and leadership.
