the power of self awareness

Join us for this powerful journey within to deepen your self-awareness and rethink how you work and live.

In our busy workplaces, there’s little time to recognise how we react unconsciously to people and situations throughout our day. Over time this can take its toll, impacting our self-esteem, our wellbeing and the quality of our work.

This is an opportunity for you to join a community of like-minded leaders from a variety of industry sectors. Together you’ll discover how being more self-aware enables you to be your best more of the time.

Having worked with many leaders and their teams we’re delighted to have made such a positive impact to their self-awareness and emotional wellbeing.

As such, we’d like to invite you to be part of our new online programme…

... absolutely loved this course that I never knew I needed in my life!

It’s been transformational both at home and work.

Sarah McLachlan

By participating in this programme you’ll…

Develop a more conscious approach to your work and wider life.

Learn what unconsciously motivates you and how that differs from others.

Learn to observe how your emotions impact your actions.

Expand your capacity to have emotionally aware conversations.

Deepen your resilience and ability to self-regulate in moments of stress.

Relate to yourself and others with more empathy and compassion.

Together we’ll explore…


The neuroscience behind what makes us tick.

How our early development influences how we see ourselves and others.

Unhelpful behaviour patterns and habits and how to overcome them.

What triggers us and how we struggle to think beyond the feelings that arise.

Our ego and the stories of our inner critic.

Who we are at our best and what gets in the way.

Who’s it for?

– Leaders who appreciate the importance of self-awareness and the need to connect in more human ways.

– Teams and individuals who want to collaborate more effectively and boost their performance.

– HR professionals keen to understand human nature so they can provide more effective support.

– Anyone interested in deepening their self-awareness and learning how emotions impact their actions.

What's included in the programme?

The programme is facilitated live on Zoom by Karen Mason and Lewis Wilson over four one day modules.

Each module will include a blend of information sharing, group discussions, and practical activities. You’ll be invited to bring and work with your own personal experiences, to bring your learning to life.

Module 1: What motivates us?

You’ll be introduced to your PRINT®, an illuminating personality report to help you appreciate what unconsciously motivates you and how you are triggered. This tool supports you to get to the heart of why you think, feel and act the way you do.

Module 2: Human nature

We’ll introduce a little neuroscience and share how fears and beliefs stored out of your awareness can lead you to act in unhelpful ways.

Module 3: Trapped in survival

You’ll meet your ego and befriend your inner critic. Understanding how your ego works is essential to your growth as a human being.

Module 4: Human within

Rediscover who you are at your natural best. We’ll share a practice that supports you to build awareness leading to greater confidence, resilience and the ability to be the best version of yourself more of the time.


You’ll each receive a personalized PRINT® report. PRINT® is a personality profiling tool that supports you to understand why you think, feel and act the way you do.

All other course materials will be shared via our online platform for you to refresh your understanding and put learning into practice between each module.

Journal prompts

In each module, we’ll share a journal prompt that is designed to help you reflect on the programme content and integrate your learning.


When you join the programme, you’ll be invited to be part of our growing community of like-minded leaders who want to make work human. You’ll be invited to our free online events where we reflect and share ideas about humanising the workplace.

A little bit about us...

Hi, we’re Karen and Lewis, your facilitators for the programme and co-founders of essentially human.

Having worked at senior levels of corporate organisations for many years, we both recognised the need for change. As such, we embarked on a journey to discover more human and agile ways of working.

We believe that by understanding ourselves more deeply we start to address the many challenges we face in our organisations.

Outside of our work we enjoy yoga, meditation and spending time in nature with friends and family. We write a blog about humanising work and can usually be found online working with teams from a variety of organisations.

We can’t wait to meet you and share what we’ve learned to inspire your own journey of self discovery…

What people are saying…

I now appreciate how the money spent on organisational development programmes is often wasted – because our ego simply draws us back to our familiar selves. Through participating in this course, I’ve gained the awareness to change this.

Lou Close

I’m still buzzing about my PRINT® report!

It makes so much sense and is so helpful in helping me see who I am at my best.

Emma Bolton

I really enjoyed every week of this programme.

It’s been brilliant to take time out and reflect.
Karen and Lewis are so open and easy to listen to.

I’d have enjoyed more sessions!
