The Seven Levels of Leadership

Building a values driven organisation

 

In an age of increasing global and local competition, cultural capital – the ability of an organisation to build a corporate culture that attracts and retains talented people – is rapidly emerging as the most important criterion for success. Who you are and what you stand for is just as important as the quality of products and services you provide. To become a market leader you will need to embark on a process of whole system change. Continuous monitoring of the corporate culture will be essential for success.

 

The cultures of corporations, government institutions, and non-governmental agencies are a direct reflection of the consciousness of the current leaders and the legacy of past leaders. The leaders’ values define the culture of an organisation, and the culture defines the organisation’s competitive advantage or level of mission assurance. Cultural transformation begins with the personal transformation of the leaders, and building group cohesion in the leadership team.

 

Cultural Transformation Tools measure values through on line surveys to reveal levels of employee satisfaction, effectiveness of leadership and tangible gains and losses due to behavioural culture.
