Leadership is “a way of life” and in the absence of a standard definition for the leaders’ role we observe misty conditions. The mist symbolises the clouded vision and lack of compliance with exemplary yet contextual leadership traits. Because we believe Leadership is a role to play and not a position to hold, nxtLeader marks the start of a new beginning. We call it a “new life” with more focus on a systematic approach to better engage with (or challenge) Leadership concepts. We rely on applied experiential learning method and utilise an action learning approach. We combine the latest academic research with Industry best practices to identify “Hidden Talents” and develop Leadership brand. We are different because of who we are and what we provide but most importantly why and how we deliver. The extra value from nxtLeader comes in all forms and colours of the spectrum representative of all walks of life and variations with the inclusion of “everyone”. It is not about who you are now but what is your potential to be next. To set the standard, guide and facilitate the transition into a new Leadership Culture we go the far by helping leaders not only “know” about Leadership or “do” an act of leadership but to “be” Leaders. Leadership in the organisation context will then infuse an innovate mindset for individuals to stay sustainable and transform to remain relevant.
Finally, out of this mist emerges a true Leader for the (next leader) “nxtLeader” becomes alive: “This is our way of Life“.
