A note from Katherine

I want a world in which there are organisations where respect and the dignity of individuals are held in the highest values, beyond financial performance.

Shame and blame are not management styles.
There is no leading by fear.

Empathy is a valued asset, accountability is an expectation, and we nurture the primal need for belonging as we work with the strength in diversity and difference.

In this world leaders will embrace complexity, and this state of rapid and perpetual change, rather than trying to deny or work around it. They will be skilled in working with people, and believe in the importance of a human systems perspective. Standing in the truth and facing into reality, even when it is ugly, will be at the heart of leadership.
