Why we are different

Based on a revolutionary new scientific understanding of human motivation.

Traditional leadership practice focuses on the personal traits, strengths and qualities that mark out great leaders. Yet, the evidence shows leadership is never about “me”, nor the special characteristic only a few possess. It’s about how leaders and followers come to care passionately about “us”.

In Great Teams Academy you will learn what really motivates people and how to harness it to make your team great.

Why you, why now?

Trust in organsiations and their leaders is at an all-time low, “on the verge of an existential crisis” according to the Edelman Global Turst Barometer. In 2017 over two-thirds of the general population do not have confidence in leaders and one in three employees does not trust their employer.

Meanwhile the leadership development industry has never been bigger; in 2015, Harvard Business Review estimated companies spent more than $360bn globally. Colleges and universities offer hundreds of degree courses on leadership, and the cost of customized leadership-development offerings from a top business school can reach $150,000 a person. Profes

Research at Harvard found only 11 percent of more than 500 executives they asked globally believed that their leadership development achieved and sustained the desired results. Mckinsey revealed only 7 percent of senior managers think their companies develop global leaders effectively, whilst 30 percent of US companies admit they have failed to exploit international business opportunities fully because they lacked leaders with the right capabilities. It’s a mess.

Professor Michael Beers from Harvard described it as the “Great Training Robbery”, whilst the MIT Sloan Quarterly Review call it “Leadership development’s epic fail.”
