Participants have consistently been positive both in terms of own personal growth and equally important, their ability to motivate their teams during periods of significant organisational change. However the impact that we value most has been how the teams involved have improved their performance through a shared understanding of their team goals and each individual’s contribution. This work has raised the level of communication, removed some of the distracting factors with the teams and enabled managers to focus on the important aspects of performance.
The field of ‘leadership development’ has overattended to ‘leadership’ and underattended to ‘development’…
This means that current leadership development methods focus on the WHAT of leadership, yet this makes very little difference to HOW they actually act as leaders.
How we do business is moving into new territory. In order to flourish in this new world, we must improve our organisational “nervous system” so we can perceive and act immediately and effectively. Leadership is at the heart of that nervous system and the onus is on these leaders to act differently so that the organisational “neural pathways” can also change.
Acting differently, integrating Authenticity, Consciousness and Trust as an embodied way of being to the leadership repertoire, is the leadership road to strategic advantage.
Leaders, wherever they sit within the organisation, have to align with the strategic direction and, through processes of adaptive change, achieve their own language of leadership.
This new, intensive programme balances both organisational and individual change needs. Its approach is posited on personal challenge, empirical reflection and impact analysis.
