Leadership & culture

Reinventing the way we lead and work together to maximize human potential, build inclusive cultures, and drive lasting behavior change.

Great leadership and culture matter

The urgency of the climate change crisis, growing social movements and the pandemic, are transforming how we operate and do business. People have new expectations of employers and customers are increasingly making buying decisions based on their values.

To succeed, leaders need to lead in an entirely new way and corporate culture needs to change.

Leadership and culture can accelerate or hinder business success. Our ways of being, seeing and doing can create energy, focus and capacity for us to adapt, unite our strengths, help us recover from losses, and enable us to celebrate victories together. Or they break us down, sapping our energy and leaving us to focus on individual performance to our collective detriment.

We’re here to start a movement to accelerate growth by shifting habits and behaviors, reigniting innovation, building greater trust and transparency, and fueling your people to meet the future with excitement, and resilience, together.

Read how agile, responsible, connected leaders create winning cultures.

"We need to create new ways of working that reflect the changing world outside and inside our organizations, and enable us to respond to the unexpected opportunity or threat with speed and accuracy."

— Simon Hayward, Managing Director – Leadership & Culture, Lead

Frequently asked questions

Leadership is influencing a group in service of a goal. It sounds simple, but it’s incredibly complex for today’s leaders, who face multiple challenges and crises and who are balancing these with the need to support their people to leave them Net Better Off. Culture encompasses what people do, how they do it and why they do it.

The highest-performing organizations have strong agile, responsible and connected leaders that create positive cultures and equitable experiences built on trust. This enables people to thrive, participate fully, build relationships, innovate, deliver impact, and grow their careers. Leaders who embrace the opportunity to inspire people, instill purpose and influence performance will be able to attract and retain the top talent required to succeed today and into the future.

Leaders often underestimate the impact they have when it comes to developing an organizational culture that drives trust and job satisfaction, and that enables employees to maximize their potential and feel like they belong. When leaders embrace and nurture an inclusive culture focused on the needs of all stakeholders, everyone wins. Tomorrow’s success depends on the ability of leaders to connect people to a compelling purpose and unlock human potential.

Many companies know what a thriving leadership culture looks like but struggle to deliver it. To enjoy the benefits of true organizational culture change (increased innovation, productivity and retention), leaders must adopt new skillsets and behaviors and create omni-connected experiences. When leaders are agile, responsible and connected, they can create cultures built on trust and belonging that serve their people, customers, shareholders and society.
