Peter says “Companies don’t transform; leaders do. I have never seen strategy and structure outperform the limitations of a misaligned leadership team. However, an aligned leadership team will consistently outperform the limitations of strategy, structure, capital allocation and even market conditions. The role of a leadership team is not to protect the status quo, but to successfully migrate their organization from one competitive advantage to the next.”

Leaders often confuse awareness of change, with taking ownership for leading it. Have the courage to accept reality and then unleash an ambition worthy of your disruptive potential.

With the current isolation caused by COVID-19, now more than ever, we need to connect with our teams, inspire our leaders, and add value to our clients and member. We believe that in economic and social crisis there is opportunity…
