Liberating the Deep Potential of Human Being

Over the past 14 years, through over twenty-eight programs delivered on three continents, GTC has developed into one of the most powerful, awakening, and mature learning journeys available today. GTC graduates are extraordinary professionals of all ages, from diverse backgrounds and from many parts of the world. They share a common desire.... to transform themselves, their organizations, communities and our human consciousness, motivated by a vision of a more beautiful, equitable and sustainable future for all.

When you join one of our programs, you will meet other individuals who are awakening to new versions of self, relationship, systems, conception, innovation and the spirit of love for the whole. You will complete GTC with more awareness, aliveness, and vision for your own role in bringing about positive evolution for planetary life. And you will leave with the practical knowledge, skills and a community of support, to help make your vision a reality.


GTC Africa (Generating Transformative Change) is a proven, leading edge, research-based leadership development program, which supports participants in growing and expanding to become effective leaders who facilitate transformation in their professional and personal lives.

The GTC is made applicable for Africa, using participants’ own cases, together with universally applicable methodologies and theories. GTC is uniquely relevant to African participants because of the depth and breadth of experience, learning and growth that it brings. Such depth and breadth of learning is required to address the complex leadership challenges of executives and professionals living in emerging economies in the continent that need to be sustained on the one hand, and the tribulations poverty bring on the other.

Vision of a Resilient Africa


Many countries in Africa are envisioning becoming a middle income economy with equitable and sustainable growth and development that balances the economic aspirations of its citizens, while also ensuring harmony between cultural integrity and environmental and natural resources sustainability. Realizing such vision requires executives and professionals, in both the public and private sectors and all disciplines, who have leadership capacities and competences of breadth and depth offered by programs like the GTC.

The depth and breadth of competences and capacities you acquire from the GTC combine self-development, organizational development, and systemic impact with deepening of purpose. When having a vision and a strategy are not enough, high-functioning, resilient and transformative leaders with such capacities are required to respond to complexity and challenges.

It helped me see a new world that I wouldn’t have ever never be able to see had not it been for these great theories, great timing, great delivery system, and great faculty!"
