From the heart: I have high hopes that we can harness the collective intelligence across multiple disciplines and industries to address some of the very big challenges we face across every industry – creating sustainable, resilient and restorative practices that contribute to a better future for our children.
The three principles of the Collective Leadership Allies Program are described in this video by Roelien Bokxem of PresenceAtWork and by me – a student, practitioner, and advocate of collective leadership.
Principle 1: Leading from your authentic core
Principle 2: Leading from the whole rather than from “The Rock”
Principle 3: Leading from the emerging future rather than leading from past history.
We also introduce a powerful body-based strengths model, and how these strengths contribute and inter-relate in a collective or human system. In particular, I can validate the importance of understanding the individual strengths and which strengths are most critical in each phase of a change or innovation initiative. This model brings value well beyond what I have ever learned from Myers-Briggs or other similar individual leadership type tools and methods.
I invite you to listen with curiousity, and to think of relevance in your own organization. We have much meaningful and important work ahead, and this is all about “sharpening the saw”.
