Our leadership support engagements use the modalities of consulting, coaching, and teaching to support leaders in aligning their intentions and desired impact.
By following a human-centred, system-design, and power-conscious approach, each of our engagements goes through a process to meaningfully align core values, needs, and hopes/fears.
The evolving role and impact of leadership
Organizations, and specifically leaders, are experiencing a growing demand from their team members for the redistribution of power, changes to cultural ways of working, and real accountability and transparency.
Assessing current impact
The first step is to establish a current understanding of leadership impact by exploring the alignment between how a leader sees themself and how others experience them.
The inclusive and agile design of our discovery activities (360°s, interviews, workshops, etc.) enables us to gain a more intimate understanding of leadership through the stories, perspectives, and feedback of those experiencing it.
Developing for desired impact
Informed by meaningful feedback, our trusted advisors help leaders to create personalized impact plans that include strategies for developing deeper levels of awareness, skill, and capacity.
At this point, leaders have a few different pathways for working closely with our trusted advisors - regular 'traction' and coaching sessions, project-based consulting services, and more.
Using power consciously
In our field of work, all roads connect back to power and leadership. So, the desired impact of our leadership support work is to change (for the better) the way leaders operationalize their power.
This means we care about accountability, traction, and feedback. Working closely with leaders, this work can include support in weaving new learnings into existing (or upcoming) projects, relationships, and/or cultural ways of working.
