Have you observed the lack of effective leadership in the United States? Rather than uniting us with a positive, powerful purpose, the people in positions of leadership appear more concerned with divisive agendas. We observe a lack of effective leadership not only in the government but within many corporate structures as well.
“Command and control leadership” does not work in today’s complex world of fast-paced, dramatic change. It does not work in today’s diverse, multi-cultural environment. It does not work period. “Command and control leadership” is an archaic default that is leaving countries, organizations, teams, and people broken.
We believe in defying that default. We believe that effective leadership comes from a place of deep, internal integration. It occurs when you know who you are, get clear on your leadership voice and use your strengths to bring your best leadership self to the world.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.” – Leo Tolstoy
“Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple and it is also that difficult.” – Warren Bennis
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action — an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign — even as the rest of the world wonders why you’re not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special.” – Bill Taylor, HBR article “Do You Pass the Leadership Test?”
