Two Common Scenarios
1 – With the proliferation of knowledge, information, and technology, no leader can know it all or do it all alone anymore – complexity abounds. Gone are the days of heroic leadership, and organisations are recognising this – probably because leaders are feeling the pain of overwhelm, stress and not enough hours in the day to get everything done. The leadership hierarchy is starting to become a hindrance to decision making, innovation, and better customer outcomes.
2 – A new leader comes on board to a new team that needs to take the time to get to know each other or to an existing team where unhealthy behaviours and dynamics have set in that need to be addressed (e.g. bullying, cronyism, marginalisation, power dynamics, etc.)
Both scenarios result in the organisation wanting to discover new models of leadership (e.g. adaptive, transformational, shared, integral leadership, holocracy, teal organisations, etc.) Whatever name or brand it falls under, it needs to stick. The executive team or internal People and Change team engage Humans Who Lead to facilitate a process of identifying and enabling a shift to a different type of leadership model or culture. Leveraging the Transformational Change Loops model, Humans Who Lead facilitates the process of co-creating a bespoke leadership model that is fit for purpose to the organisation and can be integrated into the structures and processes of the organisation. We then begin the hard work of practicing and embedding new leadership roles and behaviours.
- Strengthened and cohesive leadership teams with more self-awareness, trust, and mutual understanding; reduced conflict
- Breaking down of siloes and more collaborative dialogue
- A clear articulation of leadership style and behaviours that align with the organisation’s values
- Natural attrition of poor performers who voluntarily leave as a result of honest and humane conversations
- A defined leadership development path or program that emphasises vertical development
- 1:1 or team coaching to sustain change
