“We need authentic leaders, people of the highest integrity, committed to building enduring organisations. We need leaders who have a deep sense of purpose and are true to their core values. We need leaders with the courage to build their companies to meet the needs of all their stakeholders, and who recognise the importance of their service to society.” Bill George ‘Authentic Leadership’
Are your leadership teams equipped to deal with the contradictions of the world today? Do they act in ways which deliver your strategic ambitions? Are they big, bold and creative yet authentic and people centric?
We believe passionately about the role of leadership in high performing organisations.
We work with you to identify what needs to happen to leverage the power of leadership and help you make it happen. This co-creative approach delivers results which stick!
The four steps to creating a leadership team which will ignite the passions of your people:
1. A common understanding of what good leadership looks like Strong, consistent leadership which inspires trust stems from an understanding of the behaviours, principles and beliefs which are valued within the organisation.
2. Clarity of your purpose, goals and strategy Obvious, yes? But if you ask the individual members of many leadership teams you will get different answers and conflicting priorities. When aligned to a common goal, your decisions, actions and communication will gain focus and impact.
3. From ‘groups to ‘teams’ right from the top In reality many leadership teams are just groups of individuals. Transformation into a team involves a real understanding of each other and strong relationships. Without these, it is difficult to get the robust challenge and debate essential when making those ‘big’ decisions.
4. Igniting the passion. To make the step change to an organisation where every individual is empowered and performs at their best comes with a culture where people understand strategic priorities and are given the freedom to do things differently. It is your leaders who can work this magic through the way they actively engage and communicate both internally and externally.
