Which Team?

Creating, developing and sustaining leadership is one of the greatest challenges we face in this new and increasingly complex learning landscape...

Wherever you look we need to develop leadership
And every issue we face requires strong, passionate and determined leadership which sadly is in short supply. It's easy to look inwards, to avoid risks, to blame others when things go wrong and simply think that we can focus on our own organisation and forget everyone else. However, everything we do connects us with others. locally, regionally, nationally and of course internationally as the credit crunch and crisis across the money markets of the world clearly demonstrates. Real leadership is about seeing the bigger picture and understanding your place and your responsibilities to build great learning places and great communities. Every issue facing us is a team issue and requires us to work together to find solutions not for us as individuals or for our individual organisations but for your team. If you are not playing for your team who are you playing for; perhaps you are not playing at all. If you are not playing for your team you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

So get out there and start playing!
