Leveraging the Hidden intelligence in your Leadership team

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Business & Investing


Leadership today is becoming a collective pursuit – not a solo performance. As an effective top team, you can create tremendous, long-lasting value. And yet, being in a leadership team is not easy. In fact, 80% of executives admit their leadership team is not as high performing as they know it can be.

A collection of ideas to live by

Turning 50 in early 2024 has been a good time to reflect and take stock. I started by taking 50 days off. Soon, I noticed that if you take the number 50 and curve the 5 a little, it makes the word: “SO?”.
So you’re 50?
So what?
So what do you believe?

Decision Rights for Leadership teams

A guide to who, what and how

Organizations should be designed to make and implement decisions. In reality, the way decisions flow through organizations is often haphazard. Inconsistent, unclear processes can lead to slow, low quality decisions - and underwhelming business outcomes. A 2019 study revealed that 80% of executives report deficiencies with their organization's decision-making process. 

If you work on the “what, how and who” of decision-making – the decision rights & responsibilities – research shows this will support better, faster decisions and lead to demonstrably better business outcomes.

“Decision rights enable organizations to make and execute higher quality decisions more quickly”.

A guide to building effective team behaviours

My research, and experience working with 50+ teams, reveals that teams need 3 types of intelligence to deliver results.
Emotional intelligence (EQ) builds connections and trust - so it’s a real team. Practical intelligence (PQ) makes sure
projects get planned and tracked properly – so you get real action. Creative-Analytical intelligence (IQ) is where you make sure you understand your industry sector better than your
competitors and develop step-change innovations.

The collective intelligence of the team is underpinned by discipline – and three types of habit.

Leadership Development Case Study

Targeting measurable behaviour change

Our leadership development program is designed to

  1. understand your leaders current capabilities,

  2. target the key gains you want to make,

  3. and then measure behaviour change.

In this case study we show how we are able to measure the gains through running 360 reviews before and after the program and calculate the observable changes.

Leadership Team Case Study

Building a stronger team: the evidence

Every year I partner with six organisations across 12 months to support a transformation of their leadership team, strategy and culture. These partnerships are bespoke. They generally include

  • a commitment to team coaching with a quarterly "Pit Stop"

  • a period of strategy planning 

  • measuring the progress of the leadership team with my team diagnostic

  • one-on-one coaching for the leader and some of the leadership team
