Quiet Leadership – Invitation to Participate in 2021

I am about to start prototyping the new Quiet Leadership programme: i hope to run two full cohorts through before Christmas, on two different timezones. This work is experimental: a guided and reflective journey into leadership beyond heroes. It explores the small and gentle ways that we each impact our system, and the ways that we can each weave strength into it through the smallest actions.

Underlying this work is the notion of the Organisation as Ecosystem, a forest, where all of our actions enhance or degrade the balance to some degree. The challenge is not to try to avoid leaving footprints, but to ensure that there is not too much erosion: it’s about mindful practice, and a fairness of action.

Central to this work is the idea that development is not simply about growth: it is about loss as well. The things that we choose to leave behind are as important as the things we carry forwards.

I have had an overwhelming response to this work so far, with hundreds of people registering for the Open programmes next year. I intend to build this as a programme that money cannot buy: it will be free for individuals or teams who make a commitment to pay forward their learning and insights. To make a difference, in the smallest of ways, in their local or global community.

You can sign up to find out about the programmes through 2021 and beyond here.
