Work With Impact

Own It! by Dr Paige Williams

Our mistake is marginalizing love from leadership.

Lead with Love

LOVE AS STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE

Millennial generations are asking leaders to show up differently: they want leaders with an agenda for a better future who inspire them to achieve, and who genuinely care about who they are – in work and beyond. Leaders as distant fonts of knowledge are no longer relevant or required.

To create successful teams that can make the most of the opportunities and navigate the challenges of the 21st century workplace, we need to bring love front and centre.

Go There! by Dr Paige Williams

Avoiding truth doesn't make it disappear.

Go There!

5 UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS WE NEED TO FACE TO SUCCEED

One of the things we learn as researchers is to go there. We go beyond the quiet desperation of a life of ‘not enough’, and get to the deeper question of, "What might be possible…if we go there?”

But we don't Go There. We call it "being polite." We pretend it’s to avoid offending others. But what it really is, is sweeping these issues under the carpet. It's stuffing the dirty clothes under the bed. And at some point we've got to clear them out. Because if we don’t, there becomes a festering smell in our cultures, in our teams, and in our personal relationships that impacts everything we do.

Own It! by Dr Paige Williams

There's an
epidemic of underperformance plaguing teams and organisations.

 

Own It!

Honouring and amplifying accountability

Activity but no progress, meetings with no follow up, confused responsibilities, impossible demands, missed milestones, low morale, poor engagement, talent drain…

What’s the cause?

Issues with accountability.

From broken promises and unrealistic expectations to finger pointing and cultures of avoidance and blame, issues with accountability – and the fear that drives them – are rampant across business, government and NGOs.

If you have people in your team you have issues with accountability.

Becoming AntiFragile by Dr Paige Williams

Are you ready to move beyond resilience?

 

Becoming AntiFragile

LEARNING TO THRIVE THROUGH DISRUPTION, CHALLENGE AND CHANGE

The level of disruption as we start this new decade is like nothing we've experienced before. Resilience simply won't cut it in the face of such uncertainty. 'Bouncing back' isn't enough. It's exhausting and it's burning us out.

We need something that sustains us in the long term.

We need to benefit rather than break from our experiences.

We need to turn disruption and uncertainty to our advantage.

We need to Become Antifragile. 

Teaming AntiFragile by Dr Paige Williams

The collective is inherently more antifragile than the individual.

Teaming Antifragile

Building Teams that Thrive

We are better together. It really is that simple. Navigating complexity and uncertainty, solving 'wicked' problems in creative ways, sustaining the energy to keep making progress requires the collective capacity inherent in teams.

Antifragile teams move from fear to confidence, from avoidance to accountability, and from drama and frustration to focus and action. The result is purposeful progress and high performance even as they navigate disruption and change.

Own It! by Dr Paige Williams

Without an antifragile culture, thriving and performance is limited.

Leading AntiFragile

Crafting Culture for Teams to Thrive

Team culture can make or break the experience of work for people and the outcomes they achieve together. Leaders ignore it at their peril.

And that's because culture is what helps teams to learn forward together. Dynamic and fluid, culture emerges from how we discover and define the most effective way to be and work together. In a complex and uncertain environment, antifragile culture creates the conditions for teams to thrive.

Truth Honour Love by Dr Paige Williams

Who we are is how we show up.

truth, honour, love

A PERSONAL CODE FOR LIFE

We're in the midst of a crisis of confidence and purpose. Untethered, with little to anchor our choices to within, we look outside, making us vulnerable and fragile in a turbulent and complex world.

Know your truth. Live with honour. Be love in the world.

These touch stones in turbulent times are a way to show up in the mud of life and get through it clean. Without them we’re dancing in the dark on autopilot - tripping and stumbling without knowing why.

Partnering by Dr Paige Williams

From domination and 'doing to' to invitation and ‘being with’.

partnering

a new leadership paradigm

Domination dynamics - the traditional power model for workplaces - no longer serve us. We need authentic engagement, creative innovation, willing contribution, diverse perspectives to reach the level of performance needed for people, teams and organizations to thrive.

To build organizations where more people feel ready, willing, and able to lead, we need a paradigm of partnering.

Unbounded by Dr Paige Williams

Conscious boundaries liberate consciousness.

unbounded

CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP IN PRACTICE

Expectation. Obligation. Resentment.
The trifecta of a life bound by others.

Disconnected, disempowered and without love for self, this silent suffering creates drama, power-play and pain in our workplaces, teams, families and friendships every day

But there is another way.

An unbounded life with space, expansion and  joy. A life with sovereignty, confidence and understanding; a space where - without unconscious agendas - even the hard becomes easy.

Work With Impact

You know you need to rise up to the leadership challenge in the post COVID business world. You’ve tried all the traditional ways of leading and feel drained, stressed and frustrated because nothing seems to be changing for the better. And you’re being asked to do more with less: less time, less money and less support.

With more than 25 years experience as a senior leader, dr paige understands that what worked before isn’t working anymore. Instead of trying to push through and ride out the storm, dr paige supports leaders to navigate the challenges they’re facing in a different way; one that means they emerge from them better for the experience.

Yes, really. It’s possible. 

The 9 topics above and the concepts they touch on form the ecosystem of dr paige’s body of work. She partners with senior leadership teams on any of these, often fusing ideas to create a unique development journey that supports them to successfully navigate issues such as:

  • Surfacing dysfunctional team dynamics, breaking down silos and rebuilding trust, connection and compassion
  • Disrupting cycles of underperformance and resetting accountability
  • Supporting innovation, learning and growth by fuelling psychological safety
  • Reimagining leadership to build confidence and motivation to lead cultures with psychosocial safety
