Developing a New Generation of Leaders For Our Changing Times

During these complex and demanding times, the demand for a new generation of leaders is growing due to the lack of public trust as a result of disingenuous behaviour from leaders in the public eye. Organisations are beckoning new leaders, value-driven leaders whose ideals are not just buzz words thrown around the office but ones that reflect their behaviour in their respective field.

Why Tall Poppies?
It is said that a field of poppies are uniform in height and taller poppies are the first to be cut down to assist in the germination of smaller poppies The “Tall Poppy Syndrome” is a metaphor for the name given to a social phenomenon which happens to people who are resented or criticised because their talents or achievements shadow those of their peers. These potential high achievers, due to the criticisms and scrutiny from their peers and managers, hide their light under a bushels to avoid the additional stress of displaying their skills and talents.

Leaders of tomorrow require a new type of leadership programme, one which promises to deliver value-driven dynamic visionaries who are committed to achieving the goals of the organisation and the needs of their team. Our results driven approach taps into 3 models of leadership – authentic, transformational and intuitive leadership. Participants begin to widen the possibilities of leadership and what they are able to accomplish.
‘Current leadership training, almost anywhere you look for it, uses the word vision freely, but most often its basis is intellectual. Potential leaders are taught to use their minds to analyze various hypothetical scenarios. By leaving out feeling, intuitions, insight and profound
wisdom of the soul, this training falls short of its potential’

Deepak Chopra
Renowned Author of The Soul of Leadership
