Successful leadership demands innovation, superior skills and the ability to motivate and inspire others.
How can leaders, teams and individuals harness the collective intelligence and skills within an organisation?
It's about taking space, time and permission - to talk, ask and think out loud.
Right now, leadership matters more than ever before for thriving teams, as leaders grapple with how they can lead with the sort of courage, conviction and care that will ensure they emerge stronger – for themselves, their people and their businesses.
And that’s not that easy for leaders typically driven by control and decision making. Many of our leaders are experiencing an unsustainable level of real and overwhelming vulnerability as they realise they cannot carry the burden and expectation placed on them to lead with grace.
But our leaders don’t have all the answers – and don’t have to carry the burden alone.
In the busy-ness of everyday work, it’s hard enough to find time to get through your job, much less reflect on what we can do better. But when we fail to make time to get the basics right, it’s no wonder the other stuff often falls over.
The first step is to make people part of the solution. There has never been a more critical time to really connect and collaborate with staff, colleagues, peers and associates. In challenging times, the most effective way to do this is to introduce more fun, more conversations and more open discussion.
These tools have been designed to kick-start open discussion about how we work and can improve outcomes through more positive conversations and mindsets.

As a leader, you’re always looking for ways to improve yourself and your team. But today’s leader has fewer opportunities for casual chats and one-on-ones.
