Uncertainty can be uncomfortable, it can cause us to feel like a fraud or an imposter, like we are on the precipice of failure and discovery.
If not dealt with, this can become a self-fulfilling prophecy leading to unproductive teams and poor business choices which damage the sustainability and profitability of your business.
But much of the uncertainty, and the feelings associated with it, is caused by the quality of our thinking. The higher the quality of our thinking, the less uncertainty we experience, and the more comfortable we are with the uncertainty we do experience.
This creates a virtuous cycle, leading to more productive teams and more sustainable and profitable choices for your business more of the time.
The Three Leaders Programme developed by Dr Darren Stevens will help you to become more at ease with uncertainty and ambiguity.
It will help you become more confident, resilient, and adaptable.
Better decisions means a better bottom line!
In short, it will help you to become an inspirational leader with a competitive edge that comes from within.
Discover your key thinking habits holding you back from being the inspirational leader you aspire to be through an Identity Compass™ profile.
Develop the quality of your thinking through business scenario based examination and discussion of leaders with different levels of thinking quality.
Decide how to integrate your learning in your own roles and businesses through discussion of your specific leadership challenges
The Three Leaders programme was developed by Dr Darren Stevens based on his groundbreaking research on adult development which finally identified the specifics of HOW adults develop.
His results demonstrate the correlation between self-awareness adult development and how an individual’s level of self-awareness directly impacts their capacity to perform in their role.
Effective leadership in dynamic and complex environments requires a capacity to operate from multiple, often competing perspectives (Bolden, Petrov, Gosling, and Bryman (2009)). Leaders in these environments require two things:
The capacity to appreciate and process paradoxical data (cognitive complexity) the possession of a range of leadership behaviours that will allow them to lead in this environment (behavioural complexity).
By identifying and focussing on identifiable, measurable thinking habits (Cognitive Intentions) and the levels of self-awareness that these habits confer on the individual, we can transform the quality of your thinking creating the internal conditions to achieve both of these outcomes.
The Identity Compass™ provides insight into how you uniquely think, where your thinking blind-spots are, a Thinking Quotient score identifying your level of socio-emotional maturity, and an overall Awareness Quotient score identifying your level of Dynamic Intelligence. All of which help you to better understand you as a leader now and provide you with specific direction for your ongoing development.
Because leadership quality correlates with thinking quality, the Three Leaders programme focusses on your vertical development. This positively impacts your your cognitive and behavioural complexity enabling you to make better choices based on the information available to you and the needs of your team and your business.
Leadership skills and thinking quality go hand-in-hand. The skills become easier to master as your thinking quality increases, and application of the skills you learn in this course will contribute to your vertical development.
Not all businesses have the same budget, and not all business leaders have the same time available to them for professional development. Recognising this, we have created two versions of the Three Leaders course. The full course delivered over five days, and a ‘lite’ version delivered over three days for those who are limited in terms of time and/or budget.
Whilst we advocate in-person delivery, we recognise that with increased home and remote working this isn’t always possible. Because of this we offer you the choice of in-person or remote delivery.
We believe that our focus on vertical development using principles from Dr Stevens' Constructed Development Theory puts us at the forefront of Leadership Development which offers a unique development experience. As such, we encourage our course participants to join the community of leaders that have been through our programme so they can support one another's continued development.
