Why Courage in Action?

Building leadership capability and capacity helps to develop the courage, individually and collectively, to take the necessary action to lead.

The biggest opportunity for organisational improvement is strengthening the adaptive skills of its people.

Research shows that 80% of business issues are adaptive: i.e. caused by individuals or teams that are not
aligned with the same goals and objectives.

Our Leadership Eye and Action Wheel framework builds adaptive skills. Our process is tangible and
reproducible creating a systematic approach to successful alignment of people and teams.

Positive outcomes and your ROI come from confident teams that have a common language and framework
for moving your organisation forward.

On the average 10-person workplace bike, only 3 engaged people are cycling heartily, 5 unengaged people are freewheeling and 2 disengaged people are applying the brakes and trying to nudge the bike off course! Better hope one of them is not on the front!!

By the end of the week, even the 3 people cycling heartily are becoming less productive and demoralised.

Employee engagement coupled with a systemic approach to improvement is key to empowering your workforce in driving leadership and action. An empowered and aligned workforce drives high performance and increased productivity.

Raising our ‘management performance by 0.1% can increase productivity by 10%’ (Andrew Hill, FT). Our business is to raise your leadership performance and get everyone cycling!

This is relevant to all sectors: imagine 6 or 7, 8 or 9, or even 10 people cycling heartily on your workplace bike? How engaged and powerful? How aligned and high performing? How productive?
