Build purposefully authentic leadership that can resiliently adapt and lead change
Purposeful, engaged and effective leadership requires clarity – clarity around the why, what and how of leadership. And it isn’t enough to have a well-crafted piece of internal messaging on Corporate Purpose or Values, real clarity comes when the behaviour and communication that people see day to day from their leaders consistently demonstrates purpose, direction and values.
We will work with your senior leaders to understand the degree of clarity and consensus that already exists, and working with an approach we call Values Based Leadership we will build real shared clarity and authentic individual engagement. We will help leaders both individually and as a team to adopt the habits of thinking and acting that they need to develop to live and communicate both their own and the organisation’s purpose. And we can support them to build that purposeful engagement on others by developing their coaching style and practice through our programmes including ELECTRIC Coaching.
Whether working with individuals or a leadership team as a whole we will coach to build the self-awareness, insight and engagement that purposeful leadership demands. As well as our own Values Based Leadership approach, and team leadership models our team are accredited in a wide range of psychometrics and team tools to support coaching , and we will always work with your existing organisational tools and vocabulary where they are established.

Build an effective and sustainably agile culture
Culture is reputed to eat strategy for breakfast. Which is just another way of saying that whatever you intend to happen, it’s what you do that determines the result. The habits of behaviour and response in our cultures (just as in us as individuals) are what will decide our futures.
In the complex, rapidly changing world we live in our capacity to adapt effectively, and without damaging stress, is key to our success. At the organisational level this demands a culture that can hold fast to a clear purpose whilst rapidly learning together and collaborating effectively to in response to changing environments. This learning, collaborative culture demands a coaching approach to release curiosity and reflection, and to enable genuine listening. Coaching conversations challenge assumptions and widen awareness, they open up thinking to ensure that innovative options are considered, testing and finding the best way when there is no one known right answer. Coaching style and culture promote organisational learning through shared experience and reflection.
There’s no one right ‘culture’ for every organisation, so there is no one right way to build effective agile coaching culture. It has to be right for your environment, and created by and for your leaders. Only when leaders have real ownership and engagement will they really commit to consistently building new ways of working and behaving. Our consultants will partner with you to discover what an effective coaching culture really means in your unique situations, and to develop pragmatic, effective interventions to build behaviours and capabilities to make that culture a reality.
