Volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). That’s the reality of the world we are living in today. Yet, despite all that, there are a growing number of individuals, teams and organisations that thrive and flourish. How do they do it? The external conditions seem to be the same and yet something is different. Is there another way of looking at and dealing with the challenges of modern reality? Now more than ever, business leaders seek to navigate these new circumstances.
Study after study shows that the solution is to build human-centred, positive organisations with new processes and practices that are designed to meet future challenges, not current problems; organisations whose values and cultures empower innovation, productivity and sustainability, while enabling the development of resilient, adaptive and agile teams, and personnel. By establishing organisations with a human-centred focus, and an understanding of how people work and achieve extraordinary performance levels, they achieve long-lasting, outstanding results. This is positive & mindful leadership!
This September, an amazing group of positive and mindful leaders gathered in London for our annual summit to share our experiences and what we have learned when applying positive leadership tools and frameworks and mindfulness for ourselves and within our organisations. For those of you who missed this event, here is a report about the two days.
