On this blog we want to explore the topic of leadership, in order to be of more service to you and your leadership development. We intend to use it to publish only material that helps you grow. No commercials, no promotion of our own training and coaching programs, or of third parties. Just valuable leadership material, that we hope you find useful. The effort represents our commitment to serving the topic of leadership, in order to make a positive difference.
As a global provider of leadership development, we realise that humble and empathetic leadership, where people are truly prioritised, is on the rise. Despite examples of the contrary, the trend of increasing empathy is clear. Be it Omid Scheybani writing about empathetic leadership at Google, HBR articles on the value of emotional intelligence among leaders, or the voices of the countless managers we come across in programs around the world. We hear the healthy heartbeat of true and empathetic leadership beating strongly.
You see, we believe that at the heart of true leadership there is a deep understanding of human beings and their motivations to become something more than they are today. To be part of something that really matters. We believe that a servant and empathetic leader can find ways to marry the personal agendas of individuals to the organisational agenda, resulting in unbeatable synergies. It is this type of empathetic leadership we have decided to focus on in our very first blog entries.
Our Blog is here to serve you as we start a journey to explore the topic of leadership – with interviews, surveys, articles, stories and more. We hope you join us for the adventure!
Sending you my best wishes,
Thor Olafsson – Founder and Managing Director of Strategic Leadership
