“A re-purposed humanity, seen as only one part of our natural existence, is our best and only competitive advantage. In a world becoming dominated by AI, augmented reality and automated jobs, humans aren’t a resource under the control of managers and the HR profession, they’re our watchful and richly diverse business and community stewards – our agile and inventive fellowship.
So, in re-imagining leadership and leadership learning and development, we want everyone to see an organisation, or a family, or a community, as a precious belonging, made up of living-breathing colourful people in a world full of inspirational and life-giving natural beauty.
We want people to become more humane, so they enrich themselves alongside their communities, creating more innovative and sustainable ways of owning, organising and conducting work, as they also restore and protect their precious life-giving natural surroundings.
We are all customers of the leadership we are presented with or attracted to, so followership is always a choice gained through respecting and rallying our passions, uniqueness, imagination, and ingenuity.
Our mission is to help people spot and convert the learning application and entrepreneurial opportunities for implementing sustainable improvements to all livelihoods and life in general, day after day.”
Business strategies and national media constantly highlight the desperate need for more agility in workplaces. However, they are very short on detailing how to develop leaders and people in general to become more agile on a daily basis. Our corporate university and training academy solutions concentrate on diagnosing the current level of agility in individuals and teams, and how best to fill the gaps in agile behaviour capability depending on the current organisational priorities.
For Learning Institutes
Our learning approach starts with the proposition that leadership agility can be developed and deepened throughout life through reflection on personal values and our everyday practice of influencing others to enhance collective endeavour such as community development, business improvement activity and religious life. Our accredited qualifications and experiential programmes deepen personal learning before, during and after entering the private sector, social enterprise or spiritual service.
Our world will be confronted by many future disruptions, especially climate change and AI. The word ‘career' in a traditional sense will no longer apply as new roles and skills rapidly emerge. Everyone will need to become more entrepreneurial and those with excellent human-to-human interaction (leadership) skills will stand out in the marketplace. Our coaching and mentoring services support people making role transitions or creating new business ventures inside or outside their current organisations.
Our 12 Practices are Vital for Disruptive Times
Business, career and life in the 21st Century will be dominated by the combined impact of AI with other known, and as yet unknown, globally interconnected disruptive changes. The role of leadership urgently requires a different purpose and a new set of practices. Doing the right thing will matter more than who we are. We call this new personal values-led adaptive capability ‘Agilityship’.
A priority focus for leadership development programmes will be to enhance the unique sentiments and gifts which only humans bring to each other and the world they live in. This more humane and inventive leadership is critical as the world responds, like now, to pandemic, climate change and species extinction challenges.
