Leadership Matters

How can leaders, teams and individuals harness an organisation’s collective intelligence and skills?

It’s about taking space, time and permission – to talk, ask and think out loud.

Right now, leadership matters more than ever before 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 teams and their organisation.

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 leadership burden and expectations placed on them alone.

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.

How can we all lead and be better together, apart?

The shift to remote and hybrid work has seen a marked rise in the importance of teams and teamwork. Today, successful and high performing teams need to be self-directed. Everyone shares, asks and helps equally.

The TeamPlay includes curated question cards from the Leadership @ Work toolkit to help team leaders facilitate a conversation about working better together.
