A Human-Centered Approach

The core tenets of The LC approach to evolving workplace culture are simple to understand and easy to appreciate but are often complex to achieve.

The Soft Skills are the Hard Skills

At the LC, we believe the "soft skills" of leadership are actually the hardest — to learn, to earn, to nurture, and to retain. Yet, they are pivotal in driving positive change in today's complex social and business climate. 

Harmonic Expectation, the World Over

Our global conversations about workplace culture are united by a keen desire to uphold leaders who are more balanced, who are "cultivators" — who have high empathy for others and integrity within themselves — who are purpose-led and not afraid to show vulnerability.

Looking Back to Move Forward

Let us be innovative in this quest, but let us also embrace the "power of remembering" and reference back to thinkers and practices that can uniquely help lead us forward. 

Misunderstood, Often Maligned

 The traits of evolved leadership are typically considered "feminine" in nature but in fact are the most effective and legacy-building attributes of the best leaders; past, present, or future — regardless of gender.

More Dimension, New Norms

These shifts in norms require a more human-centered and modern approach to leading. And traditionally defined aspirational leadership qualities (eg. transformational or charismatic) should be more dimensional than the limited view that we currently celebrate and reward.

Small Ripples, Big Change

This kind of leadership development cannot be done overnight or in a routine "one size fits all" way. It takes courage and commitment to align around a more transformative and enduring change within yourself and your team(s). And it takes organizations who know that a "growth mindset" should mean more than just focusing on the bottom line.
