The Leader's New Relationships

The rate and scale of change, both enforced and elected, people, teams and organisations have gone through over the last 18 months has not been seen on such a global level for over 100 years. The world that we now face whilst grieving for those that we have lost is one where many industries and organizations are now able to operate globally and on a level playing field, whilst others, unable to adapt to this new reality are resigned to the history books.

The new leadership challenge that has emerged will require all of us (whether we care to admit we are leaders or not) to grow and nurture new types of relationships through exercise new skills in relationship building that are long overdue.

Leaders that are going to thrive and create sustainable and joyous organisations will be those that both recognise and model this by transcending their relationships to a level that enables them and all of those following them to be open, honest and reflective, to accept that not all of us want to work remotely whilst simultaneously creating value for their societies, communities, people and customers in a sustainable and humanistic way.

In this talk, I will explain the characteristics of the old relationships that were the lifeblood of many a leadership team and organisation and how they will now hold us back. I will also share the characteristics of the new types of relationships that will help all of us, as leaders thrive in a complex and adaptive, post-covid world.

What are the characteristics of the old style of relationships that were the leadership lifeblood for so many years?

How will they now, more than ever, hinder people from achieving their full potential?

What are characteristics of the new types of relationships that will help all of us, as leaders thrive in a complex and adaptive, post-Covid world?
