Mission: ‘To influence leadership cultures to demonstrate courage and compassion’
This programme approach harnesses and share people’s experiences of leading and of being led in the workplace. It explores how behaviour stimulates trust, creativity and performance. There are plenty of examples where the style and skill of a leader influences strongly a company’s leadership culture and people engagement.

The examples below are anecdotal evidence from interviews conducted by Head 4 Leadership. They match-up to more rigorous research in learning and development conducted by the likes of Gallup and Forbes. The quotes below capture how your leadership impact is vital to success and reputation.
Anecdotes of the leadership experience
He was a bully, but charmed and blinded the top team with his charts and gizmos. I can’t tell you how many people he was rude to, ridiculed and took their ideas as their own. How do these smart people at the top not see what we see?On being led
They were the ‘go to’ person from the senior team; no ego, calm and they’d listen. They wanted to know my views and a they were respected by EVERYONE – a one off!On being led
I had a team member who was a nightmare. I dreaded seeing them and didn’t know how to handle them. I know my peers were delighted they weren’t in their team; and they couldn’t offer any ideas because they didn’t know what to do either.On leading
Its not the decision making and difficult choices that I find the hardest. These are challenging, but not nearly as much as getting the communication of them right. I have received very direct feedback and it can be tough to hear!On leading

There is a quote about leadership that Head4Leadership particular like:
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humour but without folly.Jim Rohn
