In Frederic Laloux’s impressive book “Reinventing Organisations”, he says:
“What determines which stage an organisation operates from? It is the stage through which its leadership tends to look at the world…. This means that an organisation cannot evolve beyond its leadership’s stage of development.”
And what is so interesting for us about this now, is that unless you develop leaders who are:
Comfortable with uncertainty
Comfortable with mistakes (as long as you learn from them)
and action takers
You will not evolve.
At valueU we design leadership programmes that allow your people to experience what it means to have those skills, that enables them to practice and see the effects of what they do as they practice and hone those skills within your business, and that are perfectly aligned with what your organisation stands for and its direction.
Increasingly organisations are finding that for a number of reasons, their people are no longer all or always in an office environment. This may be because:
Global reach requires a global team
Sales people are on the road and working from a home office
It is one of the routes to better engagement for the type of people that you want to work with
Reducing the overheads of an office is important to your business
And many more.
Being able to lead remote teams is increasingly becoming a core skill.
Any leadership programme for those leading remote teams will by nature, be mainly done remotely too so that your people can practice core skills whilst on the development path.
As a start to your Remote Leadership journey, here is a small ebook with the 6 truths of remote leadership
