CQ will be the key to success to any role in the future

  • Can you assume that people with international experience have a higher level of cultural intelligence?

Holistic Leadership

Holistic leadership requires leaders to bring their whole selves to their role. It's not just about their skills, processes, and approaches to their work, but also their character, values, and mindset. And, to take this idea a step further, effective holistic leaders are skilled in encouraging others to do the same.

This holistic approach to leadership can be defined in five characteristics: inspiration, awareness, balance, transparency and ethics. Employees are more likely to be inspired to do their best work if they have an inspirational leader.

“The work exists for the person as much as the person exists for the work” (Greenleaf, 1996. p. 8). It challenges organisations to rethink the relationships that exist between people, organizations and society as a whole.
