Create a Space
When executing change, the sound of success is honest conversation. It’s the leader’s job to create a fear-free space for it to happen.
Remove Blame Culture
“We only use blame in the event of gross negligence or malice – everything else is a learning opportunity.”
develop a growth mindset
“How a team learns its ‘hard lessons’ and adapt behaviour accordingly is hugely consequential to it’s success or failure.”
“Building and maintaining trust is key to leading a team through change. No Trust, No Mandate.”
“Mature leaders create a culture of ownership and strive to change from a heroic to servant leadership approach”
