The Leadership Problem
It is evident that conventional leadership development practices are no longer adequate.
Organisations worldwide need to incorporate next generation leadership competencies to address the development needs of their rising leaders. They must do so while embracing cross-cultural diversity and cultivating collaborative relationships inside and outside their organisations.
Our Leaders today need to have a wider skill set, one that equips them to think and act globally in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) business environment. The frenetic pace of our environment, and lack of clarity, hinders our ability to conceptualise the threats and challenges facing the organisations we lead.
The rapidly evolving challenges of this century include everything from climate change to demography, shifting customer requirements and expectations, the rise of technology, globalisation, new markets, and new attitudes toward work.
Leaders must now operate in a way that inspires and engages people, while simultaneously addressing changing customer requirements and delivering results.
Research indicates that only about 10% of managers have mastered the level of agility needed to be consistently effective and avoid burnout in today’s turbulent global workplace.
How Can I Help
Unlike many providers of leadership development programmes, I am a skilled and experienced consultant that will collaborate with you and possibly request further research if we believe together that we haven’t got to the root cause of your business leadership problem.
The more thorough we are with either a ‘Needs Analysis or consulting plan, the better your ROI on a possible solution that will stick.
I will embrace your Vision, Mission, Strategy and Values to ensure that I am putting myself into the shoes of your desired leadership needs that will be correctly aligned to your organisational culture.
Too often, many companies invest in “off the shelf’’ solutions that don’t fit with the company or even worse needed at all.
