Leading from Interdependence
Evolving from independence to interdependence is a pre-requisite of stepping into being a true leader and creating human fulfillment in all of our relationships.
What Does This Look Like For You?
We work with you to nudge your culture forward on three levels
Level 1: Language and Mindsets
Diagnose: Understand your goals and vision for what a culture of Interdependent Leadership looks like as well as the organisation’s context, history and dynamics at play. Identify important people to involve in the process.
Deliver: Have regular Big Conversations- Give an introductory talk or webinar to build awareness, establish new language, and illustrate the mindset required for Interdependent Leadership.
Level 2: Skills and Behaviours
Most leadership development is focused on adding new tools and competencies, what might be called ‘horizontal development.’ However, ‘vertical development’ — developing, updating or changing a leader’s mindset and mental models — is equally important. Vertical leadership development is contingent on three conditions: ‘heat experiences’, ‘colliding perspectives’, ‘elevated sense-making’.
Diagnose: Big Conversations. Uncover and articulate the small set of non-negotiable behaviours to sustain your change goals.
Deliver: Facilitate interactive online or in-person coaching workshops and introduce the daily actions and behaviours to put the learning into practice. And continue with those Big Conversations.
Level 3: Processes and Norms
Diagnose: Big Conversations to survey the organisation to understand the challenges and barriers staff are facing as they strive to put Interdependent Leadership into practice. Uncover the norms, processes or messaging that conflicts or otherwise makes a healthy relationship with leadership difficult.
Deliver: Work with your people, leaders and processes to explore how we align organisational structures to relieve challenges and make Interdependent Leadership simply part of “how things get done around here”.
