WHY Accelerating the evolution towards more humane workplaces, where there is room for connection, community, compassion and purpose.
WHAT Leaders of organisations play a critical role in the creation of these workplaces
So it is of great importance that we develop these leaders to be able to create new, more satisfying ways of organising these workplaces.
For that we have to re-define what leadership means. We always look at leadership through the lens of leading teams, leading others, leading businesses, and leading change. But the most daunting task, for the most junior and the most senior among us, is leading ourselves. It is a duty we have, first, toward ourselves, and then toward our organisation and toward our people, to support them in their leadership journey and development.
Historically personal development is left to chance, to individual initiatives and to personal commitment. We believe that organisations can shape their future by developing their people and making sure that their team dynamics are like no other. The people agenda in an organization should be key on everyone’s agenda. It is of crucial importance that we develop the capabilities to accompany and support talent during their tenure in organisations.
HOW In any of our leadership development program and in doing transformational work in an organisation we will focus our efforts following the levels of the pyramid below.
Each level will enhance different leadership competencies, which are needed to create optimal work environments.
