As the developers of Conscious Change Leadership, Being First uniquely integrates human development and organizational transformation.
We develop leaders who are awake, self-aware, and able to see their mindsets in action. These leaders become models of transformation, masterful at remaining centered to perform optimally amidst chaos. They develop “vertically,” and expand their worldview to see more, innovate, and solve your organization’s most complex challenges. Conscious leaders are a requirement for your organization’s Breakthrough.
We provide your leaders a guidance system – The Change Leader’s Roadmap – to consciously design your organization’s transformation to achieve breakthrough results. We show your leaders how to set transformation up for success, govern it to solve capacity challenges, design it so it builds stakeholder commitment early, integrate initiatives to gain speed, and implement the transformation so results are sustained.
This establishes the momentum for your Breakthrough.
We show your leaders how to lead “co-creatively,” beyond the limitations of command and control, so they unleash the full potential of your people. This generates a culture of accountability, mutual support, and trust, where your people focus on enterprise success above personal agendas, and work together across boundaries in service to customers and your organization’s transformation. This delivers your Breakthrough.
