Leadership * Innovation
|When we examine the key requirements of today's
most senior leaders - governors/directors of Boards, Politicians,
and Executives, three areas of development are most notable.
We need individuals willing to step forward and facilitate the
solution of evermore complex and engaging challenges. These
demand some new competencies and capabilities, largely not required
in our leaders of the past.
Our focus is on Governance and Executive-level Leadership. Practical,
applied, research-based and capacity-building approaches that
will help you, your organization and your community improve
your leadership practices. Our public programs have a money-back
We provide programs and customized solutions that are proven
yet modern, timely and relevant, challenging yet adaptive. The
- Inspired leaders & followers
- Empowered employees and teams
- Distributed decision-making, all held together
- Common purpose & shared meaning Rooted
in our ongoing competency-profiling research, we help you
adjust your leadership practices they way you want. We then
support you in implementing the new practices back home!
Today's non-linear world will always seem chaotic. Yet amid
chaos, inside paradox, and surrounded by bland look-alike products
and services, innovations emerge. These innovations capture
our imagination and create new value for individuals, organizations,
How many more toaster-ovens, cars and computers can the developed
world buy? How much traditional 'consumerism' can our environment
support for the developing world using traditional mechanistic
& industrial means?
Continuous innovation practice, and innovation nurturing leads
to differentiation, new high-value products/services, and increased
market share. Innovation can provide more enjoyable work environments,
safe and secure communities, and increased likelihood of sustainability
in an unstable world. Innovations will be necessary to address
our environmental challenges and global instabilities.
We work at disturbing, probing, and facilitating your own experimentation
or discourse so you and your team can enhance its own innovation
As a Board member or executive, you have a significant responsibility
to ensure your organization remains relevant, builds upon past
successes with new creations, and doesn't destroy the community
in which it operates/affects. Narrow self-interest, profitability-drive,
and continuous conquest/growth behaviour is starting to 'crack'
the foundation of most of the economic, social, scientific,
and environmental models we have held dear for over 500 years.
'Stewardship' in all its multi-dimensional, integrated, and
global elements is requiring us all to rethink our perspectives,
governance approaches, and leadership priorities. This is tough
to do in just four meetings a year or one annual strategic retreat!
It is going to require a renaissance in both thinking and action,
and will take a sustained effort to succeed.
We help you explore what stewardship means for you, your organization,
and your community. We can help you build your 'Leadership Dashboard'
to keep key information nearby, Coach you to improve your Board
agenda-setting or Executive team meeting processes, and facilitate
strategic explorations and assist in your team making better
We are serious about fostering a Leadership Renaissance!
