Changing our behaviour and habits just does not happen because somebody tells you to do so. We learn by trial and error with a heavy emphasis on reflection and sense making. People need to feel safe in order to take the risks associated with growing as leaders. So we have an unshakeable commitment to experiential development.
The single largest element in our work is almost always reflection and sense making – our expertise in facilitating after ‘action reviews’ sets us apart. Although we are not short of opinions on countless aspects of leadership, our teaching ‘inputs’ are always going to take the least amount of time.
There are several unavoidable implications of working this way. It takes time and time is a limited resource which must therefore be prioritised.
“‘Subordinates’ need to challenge in order to follow, and ‘superiors’ must listen in order to lead.”
“Leading does not mean coming up with the answers, it means having the humility to grasp that you do not yet understand and then to ask the right questions.”
