Chapter 01. The Forest In Between the Trees
The approach to leadership education is currently broken. We must inverse the approach of how we educate our leaders in teams, schools and organizations.
The traditional approach to leadership education is centred around individuals. Instead, we need to bring teams and organisations to follow a cultural approach towards the education of their leaders, creating environments of growth and of trust.
The role of leadership, or the role of someone who leads, is: clarity, influence, safety.
Leadership is not about titles or ranks, it’s about a personal choice. We should strive to build organisations where leadership is not a power or responsibility, but a norm.
The goal of leadership training programs or workshops is not to place or prepare individuals in leadership roles. What’s important is to create an environment where anyone feels safe to lead.
Truly great teams and organisations enable the co-existence of a culture of growth and a culture of trust.
