A little more background on Ssentia.
Tension exists between leadership and sustainability. This tension is embodied by you in behaviour and your employees see and feel
when that tension is healthy or not. Whether you are driven by passion or
power; frustration or freedom; compassion or control. True leadership assumes a
choice and not necessarily a balance between those equations. What is your choice when it matters?
I view life from a holistic perspective and this attitude translated in
work through a number of values I care about: integrity, respect, no-nonsense
and a sense of humour. I want to connect people through dialogue. I believe
dialogue stimulates cooperation, effectiveness and vitality. I believe it
generates engagement and success.
Leadership assumes you have a vision and ability to embody that vision. You practice what you preach. To be and stay successful, you have an excellent rapport with all your stakeholders. But do you? Only leaders that place their stakeholders first will ultimately be(come) sustainable and stay successful.
Change is permanent. Refreshing and also frustrating at times. This very
fact requires a leader to be vigilant. It requires an ability and willingness
to adjust and be ahead of the flow. Quite often, I see leaders doing the exact
opposite. Facing change, most leaders increase their intrinsic desire to
tighten control and focus on short term cost-cutting exercises. Thus taking a
mortgage on their people and process. I believe that ultimately, de-humanising
your organisation will kill the heart and soul of the organisation. And it’s
As a leader, you are the pivot point between connecting the present and
future in complete synchronicity with
its stakeholders and surrounds. How do you equip yourself to offer perspective,
passion and empowerment to your people? How do you embody and give guidance to
creating shared value for all?
Connecting the dots
Are you aware of your belief systems that steer your behaviour? How do
they influence (or control) your company? Let’s have a look at these beliefs
and distinguish patterns that may help or hinder you in your leadership style,
levels of trust and the way in which you seek feedback. A worthwhile exercise
to connect the dots between who you believe you are and who you really are.
