The old paradigm of leadership is over. It’s time for a new language of leadership.
Coaching. Managing. Standing in front. Sitting down in back. Above all else, we are humans, and we are all leaders.
Leadership needs to change, and Co-Active is the context for this challenging global conversation. This new language is teaching us, as leaders, how to be and what to do in a world that so badly needs the old paradigm to shift. When we’re aware of our impact on the world around us, we can create the world we are meant to live in — as empathetic, loving, and naturally whole human beings in relationship to the world around us.
Everyone is a leader, when being a leader means we are responsible for our world.
How can everyone be a leader? Our current leadership paradigm tells us that there are leaders and there are followers. That only people at the “top” — CEOs, board chairs, team heads — are considered qualified to lead. The structures built around this paradigm are intentionally rigid, meant to control others in order to mitigate the risk of the “one way of doing things” not being heard and put into action. The way society, communities, and we ourselves function within this system limits our ability to innovate and love, because it’s coming from a place of fear.
Creating the conversation for change.
