Tête-à-tête

Tête-à-tête on The perfect leader

Many organisations try to recruit the perfect leader, an individual that has to fit in, an individual that has to meet a long list of required criteria.

Nathan asks Dr GC – “How can I be the perfect leader?”

Dr GC’s response may surprise you!

Tête-à-tête – High potentials

No-one has ever completed the sentence. ‘High potentials are…’

Dr GC explains that all talent needs identifying and nurturing.

The far reaching implication of the high potential notion is that if you perpetuate that are senior levels in organisations you’re working against your diversity and inclusion agenda.

Tête-à-tête – Diversity, equality and inclusive leadership

Dr GC & Nathan discuss the boxes we put people in, why it’s key for us to move away from those stereotypes and the need to move to a more impact based framework that ignores the labels.

Defining inclusive leadership leads to a list of amorphic criteria but inclusive leadership is more about the individual feeling empowered and potent by being enabled to make a positive impact and contribution.

Tête-à-tête – Personality vs. impact & contribution

We’ve been seduced by personality and personality profiling for decades but it doesn’t necessarily have the value of connecting individuals and teams to team or organisational outputs.

Nathan & Dr GC discuss…

Tête-à-tête – How organisations get leadership requirements wrong

Individuals rise up the ranks of organisations by behaving a certain way, they get recruited for their next role based on what they’ve done before. But when their next move is to leadership their track record isn’t necessarily relevant to the next step. So are organisations getting leadership recruitment right?

Dr GC and Nathan discuss…

Tête-à-tête – Innovation & invention

The GC Index started off with a focus on innovation and change. Dr GC asks Nathan how The GC Index supports its partners and client organisations with innovation and invention.

“You go an be innovative…” a line frequently heard when organisations need to drive innovation that misses the point completely. Instead, organisations need to show their people how they contribute to the process of innovation.

Not everyone is innovative but everyone can make a contribution and impact to the process of innovation and invention.

Dr GC and Nathan discuss…
