  • Leadership is not a title or position to command or direct a group
  • Leadership is about creating change for a better future
  • Creating change encounters huge resistance at every step
  • Not giving up on the envisioned better future is at the heart of powerful leadership
  • There are no competencies, best practice models, or personality assessments for not giving up. Staying the course despite resistance requires deep intrinsic leadership energy
  • Such energy can neither be learned in classrooms nor automatically acquired upon promotion or appointment. It must be self-discovered
  • High Emotional Integrity (EI) is a pre-requisite to maximising one’s leadership energy. EI is having the courage to acknowledge and accept one’s deepest desires without judgment or guilt
  • After uncovering sources of their own long-lasting energy, real leaders align and maximise the energy of their people and organisations
  • Through effective corporate governance, the best organisations ensure that their leadership energy remains focused on ethical, sustainable and responsible pursuits
