Embracing “Leading Principles” to Unify and Galvanise Leaders & Teams
Facilitated by Roma Gaster


Session Overview

For many decades organisations have endeavoured to differentiate themselves from market competitors by crafting their unique points of difference. Words such as values, purpose, vision, mission, aspiration, strategy etc. have been used often interchangeably and with varying degrees of buy-in or engagement within teams and across the organisation. Those who have succeeded in living by their espoused set of values and/or charter, guided by their purpose, and fulfilling on their vision and strategy are the exception rather than the rule.

With a systemic lens, this session introduces what many organisations wrestle with as a hidden “missing element”, which is how best to describe the DNA of the organisation or team from the perspective of:

  • What are you to the outside world / to society?
  • What does the outside world / society want from you now and in the future?
