To stand out in the current challenging market, organizations need the focus that leaders can offer.
The constant factor in every organization is change. Change can only be lasting if we think about its impact on the long term. So not just what it brings about today, but rather, one year from now. That is the task of a leader.
Renaat Vermeulen is such a leader. For years he was president of a large multinational, with an annual revenue of €700 million. But, he began his career as a nurse. How he climbed to a top position? By applying five leadership principles continually and consistently.
Not on his own, but with a team.
Together with Renaat we have developed the Leadership Unplugged program. Based on these 5 principles: Purpose, Team, Attitude, Discipline and Anticipation. Why Unplugged? Because it’s a no-fuss program, but with proven lessons from our practice—which have often brought success in the past.
This begins with a clear mission (purpose) by the organization. What is it, and more importantly, does everyone know this mission? And does everyone know how they can practically contribute to it? From a shared idea of that vision, you continue to build the future.
As a leader you facilitate this process. And with that, being a leader is no longer a rank or position, but a choice. In a two-day training, we challenge leaders to apply these five principles. In practice-oriented and complex cases. We make sure the pressure is high in these cases. Because it is important to perform as a leader, especially at those moments.
