What Is Your Challenge?
Leadership is best learned through the application of a proven set of ideas applied to situations that are of immediate relevance and importance to the learner.
Do you have a leadership challenge you are about to undertake or program your expected to design? We offer a free 30-minute consultation to help outline, unpack or reframe the challenge – even help you decide where to begin. Leave us your email and phone number and someone on our team will set up the consultation at a time that works for you.
From Our Founder
In our experience the two biggest wastes of time and resources are confusion about leadership roles and mis-diagnosis of the challenge at hand. We formed OAA because we have met so many people so committed to making where they live and work better than it is, and certainly better than they found it. It is a noble but extremely difficult ambition to undertake. We help leaders around the globe, across all sectors build organizations and communities. We believe the world needs more leadership and spend all of our time trying to build it – with and through others.
– Jeff Lawrence
We spend all of our time talking, working and playing with all kinds of people, who have one thing in common – a deeply held belief that better leadership will build a better world. We draw on those conversations to bring you the thoughts, hopes, joys and frustrations of what those leadership journeys entail. We invite you to follow along – feel free to join in!
The very things that created the “power of being in charge” are now impeding their willingness and ability to lead the changes required.
Leading change requires risk-taking. Calculating how much risk will drive the desired change – but moderating that amount to avoid being “taken out” is one of the central challenges of leadership.
One piece of feedback she got from her team was “Lead the way you want to lead.” What struck her was how liberating that felt to her.
