The business case for a new breed of Leader

Business as usual is no longer working. If we want to turn the economy around and build a South Africa where businesses and employees across the socio-economic divide win, we need a new breed of leader. We need culture-driven leadership.

At the Hatch Institute, we have developed a holistic CultureneeringTM Programme that will give you the roadmap your organisation needs to achieve meaningful change that results in obsessive customer service, increased customer loyalty and healthy profits.

Cultural diversity

Gender issues

Personal and Leadership Coaching

Life coaching: The Personal ‘Journey to Exceptional’

The purpose of the personal ‘Journey’ is to move towards becoming an exceptional human being who can then positively influence the lives of all the people they interact with.

The individual’s journey is critical to their leadership requirements. You cannot expect to influence a culture if you haven’t shown a willingness to change yourself and earn the moral authority to lead.

Personal Mastery:  The Culture-Driven Leadership Journey

Culture-Driven Leaders are groomed to be able to cope with the complexities of our socio-political landscape and to create a working environment of respect, tolerance and trust between the different sectors of the population. An environment in which people have a sense of belonging and build a common purpose towards obsessive customer service. Leadership authority is no longer about power, position or status but rather about earning the moral authority to lead.
