What is soulful Leadership
For this, we believe, Leaders need to start leading ‘with Soul’.
The Challenge for Soulful Leaders?
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER
How might we uncover our Leadership Soul, exponentially scale our impact, and identify the truly unique value we can offer?
How do we balance our role as active catalysts for change whilst accepting, with empathy and kindness, the journey for each of us will run at different speeds and
generate different emotions?
How do we offer our organisation a clarity of purpose, and vision for the future, whilst facilitating and enabling them to ‘make this their own?
How ready are we to accept the breadth of the shadow our Leadership casts, and the role we play in being exemplars of the right behaviours, and all that entails?
How do we empower our people to experiment, take risks, and make bold decisions whilst providing the clarity and direction they need to thrive?
