Leadership Agility and Conscious Business

Three young entrepreneurs in the Netherlands have put together an impressive, globally-broadcast series of  interviews called Wake up the Workplace.  They say, “We spent about a year planning and designing this series because we’re fascinated by the emergence of more conscious ways of doing business.  We wanted to create a space for a global conversation around the topic of conscious business with some of the world’s forefront pioneers, bringing a multitude of perspectives to the table, from theorists to consultants, from entrepreneurs to teachers.”

I was honored to be among those chosen to be interviewed for this series.  The conversation was wide-ranging, allowing us to talk about the central role that new levels of Leadership Agility can play in developing a more conscious approach to business strategy and operations.  Among other things, we talked about:

  • The research underlying Leadership Agility‘s developmental framework and the Leadership Agility 360
  • The relationship between stages of personal development and levels of leadership agility
  • The new business environment and the current evolutionary challenge that leaders, teams, and organizations face in responding to this environment
  • What the emerging (Catalyst) level of agility looks like in action, and how this differs from the way most of today’s leaders operate
  • Why developing a more flexible, balanced “power style” is essential for agile and effective leadership
  • Why reflective action lies at the heart of personal/professional development and leadership agility

This interview, which they’ve called “Expanding your Leadership Repertoire,” can be accessed below.
