CEOs have an enormous responsibility. Bigger than, I believe, any time that has come before. The approaches that have worked before are simply not enough in the current world context.

Right now, we are on a precipice of possibility. There are numerous challenges and obstacles, and yet incredible opportunity too. And we need leaders to lead us through them. The rate of change has accelerated and the need for leaders to step up to lead that change has accelerated as well.

Yet the credibility of business leaders is at a historical low in many countries. A McKinsey report shows that between 27% and 46 % of executives fail within the first two years after transitioning to their role.

As a leader you need to equip yourself to lead, to be relevant, to have something to offer, to contribute in a world of change.

This is about moving from reactive to proactive. It is about stepping out of busy, of recognising that you have a responsibility to yourself and your tribe to enable your Big Leadership.

ASPIRE FOR CEOs PROGRAM

The 2023 CEO survey published by PwC, identified 40% of global CEOs believe their organisation will no longer be economically viable in 10 years’ time if it continues its current course.

Of the 4,000 CEOs from 105 countries who responded to PwC’s annual Global CEO Survey, the majority felt it was critically important for them to reinvent their business for the future.

Some of the critical areas of focus identified for CEOs include:
• Creating stability in the age of uncertainty
• Adapting to the future of work
• Adopting ESG as part of your business model
• Accelerating digital transformation
• Cultivating robust agility
• Talent retention and development
• Leadership talent pipeline
• Overall employee experience
• Hybrid and remote work, and how to optimise this for both employees and for business outcomes
• Relevance and sustainability

The last few years have changed the expectation of leadership. No longer just being about decision-making and critical thinking and crafting a strategic plan, but rather becoming a fuller, more holistic approach to leadership. One which involves humanity and kindness and empathy.

Leadership which looks to the bigger picture. The impact and consequences on community of decisions, which considers corporate and social responsibility in a much broader way, and of an evolving workforce who want more from their leaders.

We need Big Leadership to create the future:
• Big Vision
• Bold Decisions
• Brave Action

This program is about you developing big leadership yourself, and in the leaders around you. Developing Big Vision, making Bold Decisions, and taking Brave Action to create the future that matters to you and your community.

I worked with Stacey over a six-month period to explore alternative pathways to problem-solving and people management within my business.

Stacey was an expert guide to help me consider a variety of solutions which were not automatically top of mind. I found the process extremely enlightening,

Stacey has a deep appreciation of business management which resulted in our conversations often extending beyond the scope of what I expected.

I am deeply appreciative of her empathetic and collaborative style and would not hesitate
to undertake further coaching with her in the future.

This program has given me valuable tools for me to be able to succeed in my CFO role and, I have learnt how to inspire and motivate myself and the teams around me.

I also have re-identified the purpose of my role within the Company and have also developed skills to lead systemic change and to be the trusted expert and advisor to the MD, the Board, peers, and external stakeholders.

The success of this program has given significant improvements in my leadership skills, and it has also improved collaboration between my team, peers and my manager.

Stacey’s experience, advice and availability to act as a sounding board has helped me to build resilience and develop effective strategies for responding to issues as they arise.

I found her experience and insights incredibly valuable. I learned strategies for maintaining perseverance and momentum in an organisation with a challenging culture and behaviours.

Having a regular check in with someone outside the organisation kept me accountable, provided me objective advice, support and encouragement to keep me going.

Stacey’s style and experience was a really good fit for our organisation. A full day of workshops, conversations and activity with Stacey inspired our female leaders to reach their full potential.

Working with Stacey has also helped identify some of the challenges our women are facing, providing the opportunity for us to be more informed and proactive so we can support women in our organisation in an even better way​.
