Leadership blog

Our leadership blog is about enabling and empowering leaders, whether in organisations or institutions to be willing to think, talk and act differently, in co-creating a future where people, profit and planet really matter. It also introduces the six C’s of innovation leadership.

Whether the goal is to get people to work together across internal boundaries or silos or to create high performing, seamless and collaborative operating organisational cultures. It involves giving people the time and space, skills and techniques, to deeply connect and collectively make effective internal decisions, reduce costs and improve efficiencies, to co-create valuable products and services that customers value and cherish.

It also requires a trustworthy and dependable leadership style that establishes clarity and meaning, so that people are non-defensive and feel safe enough to take smart risks, because leaders have their back. That prepares people, and especially leaders, for the imagination age to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges, creatively and collaboratively, through experimentation and innovation.

By developing their head, heart and hand capabilities, by igniting the six C’s of innovation leadership. The six C’s for leading people in the imagination age: Connected, Curious, Compassionate, Courageous, Confident, Creative are the foundations for leading in ways that activate people’s ability to be, think, talk and act differently, to survive and thrive in a VUCA world.

By combining the six C’s of innovation leadership with AI, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, leaders and organisations could create a world where anything that can be imagined will be possible, raising the importance of imagination as the key mode of human thinking and being.

Our leadership blog aims to make leading people, in the imagination, digital and connected ages and economy 4.0, a very noble endeavor.
