ABOUT PACE BASED LEADERSHIP
As our trading environments become increasingly uncertain and complex, our natural response is to try and go faster to keep up with the rate of change around us. “I’m Busy” becomes the new “I’m fine”. When we no longer have the luxury of operating in commercial environments that are easily identified, understood, and able to be controlled, the old paradigm of command, control, time management and planning becomes inadequate. PACE based leadership focuses on four new leadership practices which enable leaders to have higher impact in complex commercial systems: to nurture the capacity for Play and thus be comfortable with things in a state of emergence, grow Adaptability and thus learn how to be equipped to change course mid-direction, build Curiosity as a way to prevent flawed commercial acumen and dogmatism and have the Energy to drive growth and expansion. PACE based leadership thus builds easier adaptation to change, helps us to manage our risk and reframes our thinking, helps us to build the focus to get things done and ensures that there is not an over investment in one solution.
Leading with PACE - Better Business without the Burnout
With news that South Africa faces a real slowdown in terms of economic growth for 2014 and forecast for even greater downward trends in 2015, the questions become, "How does one do more with less? How does one run a business which can create a better business impact without increasing the burnout of ones employees and one's self?"
There is a new model for leadership which addresses these things. It is called PACE based leadership. Its philosophical underpinnings are grounded in four new leadership practices which take into account the need to create greater traction with less resources. Leading with PACE focuses on Play, Agility, Curiosity and Energy to achieve this.
This masterclass has been designed for organisations looking to generate a more meaningful impact through less resources, and to gain more traction through a more fulfilling way of leading and doing
