Marginal Gains in Leadership

This is the successful methodology employed by the British Olympic Cycling Team


"The whole principle came from the idea that if you broke down

everything you could think of that goes into riding a bike, and then improved it by 1%, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together"

Spiral Dynamics

The three main drivers of human engagement with a group or organisation are:

Individual  -  Tribe  -  Holistic

Understanding these drivers will make a leader more effective in managing a team.

Magnolia Paint

How ever we choose to measure our organisation it is likely that we do not know the full story. It is said that the Queen thinks that whole world smells of fresh paint. Her world is affected by the behaviour of others.

In a similar way this is true of all leaders. We are often being presented with partial truths and situational dishonesty.

How do we create an effective culture of honesty?

Creating an Inclusive Culture

A functional approach to leadership often leads an organisation to creating management protocols that have very little to do with what is happening in practice.

Real change in behaviour comes when our culture fully embraces the ideas of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.
