Aligning Culture to Vision, Purpose and Strategy
The Leading Well team of coaches and mentors work with individuals, teams and organisations to strengthen leadership and raise vitality.
We decipher complexity and ambiguity by taking a whole system view.
We go beyond behaviour into mindset to increase flow and resolve blockages.
What do we mean by
Welcome to the latest topic for forward thinking leaders.
The origin of the word ‘system’ is ‘to stand together’. Systemic leaders decode complexity and embrace ambiguity. How? By optimising the dynamics between individuals, roles, teams, functions and even the market place. In this way, they operate by ‘pull’ rather than ‘push’.
At Leading Well every assignment commences with an ROI (return on investment) conversation. We pinpoint the relevant levers to impact performance and capture the necessary proof points. These outcomes often include:
- Enhancing customer experience
- Increasing market share
- Consistently raising staff engagement and sustainably improving productivity
- Overcoming business silos
- Retaining and attracting key talent
The Philosophy Behind Leading Well
Leading Well focuses on organisational vitality. Why? To sustain high performance.
Our team of leadership coaches and mentors recognise that it is no longer enough to improve leadership skills without addressing the hidden factors of mindset and dynamics.
We offer the highest standards in leadership development, cultural and strategic facilitation and mentoring. We believe that to be at the leading edge means building on a strong groundwork of personal awareness, vitality and capability.
We evolve leadership mindset to better manage complexity. We help leaders align themselves and their teams to a sustainable peak performance model that engages people and delivers business outcomes.
Leading Well differs from its competitors because we take a whole system approach. We begin with an in-depth discovery to determine how the leaders, top team and the organisation is functioning, where things are flowing well and where any disconnections sit.
What People Say
“Working with Leading Well has been a collaborative, innovative and enlightening experience.
We worked really well together to develop the purpose and scope for our project and verbalise the potential value it will bring to the organisation. Our conversations went beyond just culture and really questioned the direction that we are trying to take to help us to prioritise. Culture is a big piece and they helped us break it down to logical components, especially to position this with our Leadership Team. They brought not just technical expertise but expert collaboration and facilitation skill to challenge us intellectually to scope out something that looked quite different to what we thought it would. In this sense it was enlightening.
Leading Well has been a true partner. They are generous with our team and happy to invest in us to build a strong, caring relationship.”

Ever thought of a Culture Audit?
If auditing your culture was as common as auditing your accounts…your customers might thank you with their loyalty.
It’s not about any mindset, it’s about leadership mindset! Your leadership culture determines how your organisation performs and behaves. Your culture will never evolve beyond the mindset of your leaders!
At Leading Well our emphasis on refining and recalibrating culture focuses on leadership mindset.
