In the fast-paced world of business and leadership, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea that our past successes will continue to propel us forward. But what if we told you that what got you here won’t necessarily get you there? We find that many of our clients come to us when they hit the realisation that what they’re doing is no longer working for them. We often assume that our past achievements are a reliable predictor of future success. After all, if we’ve climbed the corporate ladder or achieved a certain level of recognition, shouldn’t that trajectory continue [...]

Let’s explore this powerful approach and understand how it can transform our interactions and outcomes. Firstly, What’s wrong with Feedback? Feedback, while essential for growth and improvement, can be a tricky beast. Let’s dissect some of its nuances: Fear Factor: When faced with feedback, our primal instincts kick in.

Let’s dive into a concept that’s vital for any leader: finding and following your personal North Star, serving as a steadfast beacon for you as Polaris did for travellers and explorers throughout history.

This intrinsic compass is not just a moral framework; it’s the essence of authentic leadership that resonates with our teams and stakeholders alike. And it’s not just that – In the research for their book ‘The Leadership Challenge’ Kouzes & Posner, highly respected leadership researchers, found that leaders who are clear on their own values delivered as much as five times greater returns for their organisations than those who are unclear on their values or [...]
