You need an online community of practice. Here’s why:
A number of large organisations have created an online Leadership Lounge or Club to bring leaders together from across the organisation. We design and build your community with you - and with the leaders who are going to use it - to help you discover what the best leaders are doing ‘out there’ in your organisation and spread it. And to allow your top team to model how to lead.
“There is FREE great leadership practice available throughout your organisation; someone, somewhere is doing what you want the rest of them to do, but you probably don’t know about it. You just need to surface and share it.” Nigel Paine
With a clear idea of what your best leaders are doing you can spread these leadership practices ‘virally’ through your employees and develop an emergent playbook of best leadership practices.
“The future is already here.
It’s just not evenly distributed.” William Gibson
Your online leadership community focuses everyone on the core purpose and culture, aligns resources and effort, and gets them to learn from each other, from the CEO & executive team down, across and up to all participants. You shape the culture by modelling real ‘desired leadership behaviours’ in action.
“Leadership is example. That’s all it is. Model what you want from the top and that’s the behaviour you’ll get. That’s how you change a culture.” Professor Aidan Halligan
See how our system positively impacted the leadership development at InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s largest companies.
“Our 1500 users love the global, online leadership community Phil and his team built and run for us. It was an industry first, and has been at the core of how we develop leaders for the past eight years, winning us prestigious awards for leadership development on both sides of the Atlantic.” Tracy Robbins, Until recently EVP, HR, InterContinental Hotels Group
