  • Purpose
     

     

    There are at least *9 different skills of ‘4.0’ corporate leadership. All skills are not equally important, some are more important than others.


    Of the 9 we consider 3 the most important, which is why we only focus on building leadership capacity/capability in 3 specialist areas

     

    1. Making Strategic Complexity Clear: a framework for understanding, approaching and designing solutions for problems that impact long-term strategy.

    2. Leading/Managing through Change: the fundamentals, principles and practices for managing and controlling change (strategy + day-to- day).

     

    3. Solving Difficult Problems: embedding ‘best in class’ methodology for implementing decisions successfully (high strategy + day-to-day).


    These 3 are recognised as '4.0' critical and outweigh others.

    We are experts in these areas and our purpose is to help leaders in corporates to achieve results in an increasingly complex world.

    Thinking Leadership 4.0
     

    Produced by John Grisby/Professor of Practice
     

    Dow the Rabbit Hole (DtRH Autumn 2021)

    The Science of Leadership Mindsets
     

    Since the 1960s nearly 80,000 books (and counting) have been written about leadership. The problem with understanding leadership is its highly subjective and contextual nature. There are as many different views on leadership as there are leaders, therefore, everyone has a different answer.
     
    There is a practical, 'hands on' approach to leadership, which are theory, models and methodology. This podcast however takes you down another route, ‘the rabbit hole’, exploring the vast human scientific domains that impact how leaders think, adapt, develop, respond, perform and survive (or not).

    Down the Rabbit Hole (DtRH) takes an innovative approach that shapes and throws new light on the subject, often approached and answered by conventional or traditional perspectives. DtRH uses the scientific framework of Leadership Mindsets to deliver unusual depth of insight. Leadership Mindsets is interdisciplinary, integrating themes that cut across and connect between different disciplines and their relationship to the real world of leadership.
     
    Each episode is as ‘Q&A’ with a leader or subject expert who analyses how their specific domain relates to leadership thinking, behaviour, capacity and capability.
