“When a leader is able to build a values-driven culture, compliance shifts to commitment, and as the values-driven culture takes hold, commitment shifts to awareness. People not only know what they have to do to achieve excellence in their work, they also know how to achieve excellence in their behavior. They are living and breathing a values-driven culture. They operate with honesty and integrity because they are encouraged to do so. The leaders act as role models and they set up systems and processes that encourage ethical behavior, collaboration and effort towards common good.” – Richard Barrett, 2011
And to build a values-driven culture, a leader himself/herself needs to be a values-driven person. Ultimately, the culture a leader creates is a reflection of his/her values, beliefs, and behaviors, which define the levels of awareness he/she operates from. Only when leaders understand, at a profound level, the inner makings of what makes them who they are, what beliefs they need to let go of and what values they need to embrace more, can they really be ready to inspire their people to be the best they can be, with authenticity, trust and sense of purpose.
In Evolutionary Leadership, we seek to encourage participants to adopt a new leadership paradigm, a paradigm based on vision-guided, values-driven leadership that targets not only the success of the team/organization, but also the well-being of all stakeholders, including employees, customers, investors, partners and society.
Join the Evolutionary Leadership program and come to understand where you are on your leadership journey; what you need to do to increase your leadership and organizational awareness, and the fundamental secrets to creating and leading motivated, engaged and high-performing teams.
