The world is changing
Organizations and leaders are facing tough challenges and huge opportunities at the same time. The world is VUCA - vulnerable, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. The world is affected by megatrends, e.g. the digital age and a new set of demands from employees. This gives us the obligation and possibility to shape our future - and be part of creating a better world.
Organizations that have purposeful direction and distributed ledership, and that are innovative, agile, and can adapt and respond to this are more likely to succeed. They outperform their peers, attract and retain the talent, have healthier cultures, and improved financials.
But, what are the new demands for leadership?
How can you organize and motivate your team?
What is expected from you as manager?
Your organization should be a place, where people want to show up!
Yes, it’s as simple as that: work should be nice. And great. And awesome. If it’s not, you should change it. Why choose to be in something, that leaves you unhappy?
A great organization comes from a few clear things:
Your are trusted, safe, and supported
Your work has to be meaningful and purpose-driven.
You need engagement and relationships.
You must create value and results for the employees, for customers, and for society.
You as the CEO has to take lead to make it happen. You are the role model. You go first.
Today's problems are just too big to ignore
The "Global Grand Challenges" are very well described by Singularity University: Learning. Water. Space. Health. Prosperity. Environment Food. Energy. Security. Disaster Resilience. Governance. Shelter.
The 17 Sustainable Goals as described by the UN are fully in line with this. We work to support goal number 8, "Decent work and economic growth".
We envision a world, where these global problems are solved through technology and global collaboration.
This requires radical new approaches to direction, leadership, innovation, and company culture.
Our purpose – our WHY!
We contribute to solving these problems by focusing on the human capabilities in the organizations;
by focusing on direction, leadership, innovation, and culture, both on C-level and everywhere in the organizations;
by enabling next practice leadership and adaptability;
by establishing and nurturing direction, leadership, innovation, and culture at organizations, who strive to fight the Global Grand Challenges.
We enable you to shape your future. We enable you to create a workplace where freedom is at center, not fear.
We want to create organizations, where people want to show up.
This is our WHY. Anything we do and say will support this.
