28 May 2012 saw the UK launch of a groundbreaking leadership report, ‘The Invisible Elephant and the Pyramid Treasure - Tomorrow’s Leadership’, which outlined a leadership model fit for purpose in the 21st century. This event continued our successful collaboration with Tomorrow's Company and their partners.
An unprecedented change in the demands of leadership and the recent ‘shareholder spring’ has highlighted a need for leaders who prioritise the true stakeholders of their organisations - customers, employees, suppliers, the community, the planet, and shareholders - rather than putting personal reward first.
This report charts the journey towards becoming a ‘transpersonal leader’. Transpersonal leadership is the development of a leader beyond their personal ego in order to fully consider and act on the needs of all stakeholders.
