Our Leaderful beliefs serve as a touchstone to shape our work and those who choose to work with us.  They represent our core values, extensive research into leadership and years of experience working with talented people within complex organisations.   Even though they are stated in simple terms, the thinking behind them, the challenge of implementing them and the impact that they have is certainly not.

 

Belief #1 - Leadership is something we do together

No matter what your perspectives, authentic leadership in all its forms is always an ongoing, collective endeavour to achieve group purpose.  Always.

 

Belief #2 - We are all connected

The challenges now facing organisations are far too difficult, too dynamic, too interdependent and too important to expect a select few individuals to resolve them.  In our networked world of possibilities there’s no escaping the notion that real power lies in the systemic relationships between us.  We are all in it together.

 

Belief #3 - In every system, something works

The wisdom, energy and intent to address your complex issues already exist within the fabric of your organisation and the real challenge has shifted from trying to ‘inject’ leadership towards helping to ‘extract’ what is already there.  Look hard enough and you will surely find it – we always do.

 

Belief #4 - Powerful dialogue creates sustainable outcomes

The primary role for Leaderful practitioners is to create an environment for meaningful dialogue, between people who care, so that truly exceptional stuff can happen.  There is no manual for the leadership challenges that organisations now face so, in a leadership sense, talk is work.

 

Belief #5 - Grown-ups have grown up conversations

Sharing significant information and involving people in the issues that matter is critical for collaborative decision-making.  While this will sometimes mean having difficult conversations about knotty issues, treating people as mature adults is always better than the alternative.
