To inspire and grow leaders across society, to enable individuals to become more effective leaders of their own lives, and in doing so to become inspiring leaders in their own teams, organisations and societies.

"There is more than opportunity for leadership, there is stark necessity for it. Men are ripe for intelligent, understanding and personal leadership. They would rather be led than managed"

Field Marshal Sir William Slim (1891 – 1970)


Our Values

Our core values determine what we do and how we do it; how we run our business and how we live our lives.

LEADERSHIP • ADVENTURE • LEARNING • GLOBAL VISION • INSPIRING

LEADERSHIP

Leadership is the core of what we do and how we work.

Inspiring Leadership - Leadership

"The task of leadership is not to put the greatness into humanity, but to elicit because the greatness is already there."

John Buchan (1875 - 1940)

ADVENTURE

Life is an adventure. The spirit of adventure involves challenge, exploration, discovery, excitement and enjoyment.

Inspiring Leadership - Values - Adventure

"If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be different, be just."

Anita Roddick (1942 - 2007)

LEARNING

If you want to lead other people, you need to understand them; if you want to understand other people you need to understand yourself.

Inspiring Leadership - Values - Learning

"Progress requires commitment to two things. First you need to dedicate yourself to understanding yourself better - in the philosophical sense of understanding what it means to exist as a human being in the world. Second, you need to change your habits of thought: how you think, what you value, how you work, how you connect with people, how you learn, what you expect from life, and how you manage frustration. Changing those habits means changing your way of being intelligent. It means moving from a non leadership mind to a leadership mind."

Peter Koestenbaum, Philosopher, in 'Fast Company' magazine March 2000

GLOBAL VISION

Our global society is facing unparalleled change and challenges. Our organisations and societies need leaders more than ever before.

Inspiring Leadership - Values - Global Vision

"Why are we here? I think many assume, wrongly, that a company exists solely to make money. Money is an important part of a company's existance, if the company is any good. But a result is not the cause. We have to go deeper and find the real reason for being. As we investigate this, we inevitably come to a conclusion that a group of people get together and exist as an institution that we call a company, so that they are able to accomplish something collectively that they could not accomplish separately - they make a contribution to society, a phrase which sounds trite but is fundamental."

David Packard, co-founder of Hewlett Packard in 1960

INSPIRING

Be Inspired, Be Inspiring.

Inspiring Leadership - Values - Inspiring

"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything with integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."

Sir Cecil Beaton (1904 - 1980)
