19 Challenging Thoughts about Leadership

19 Challenging Thoughts about Leadership

Koen Marichal, Jesse Segers
People demonstrate leadership whenever they take responsibility for change in their environment, because they believe things can or must be different. Leaders have a personal story to tell. About the challenges in the real world. About their striving for higher ideals and their quest for a better future. They question the status quo, hold themselves and others up to the mirror, take the first steps towards change and further develop themselves as an example and instrument of that change. They have impact, not based on authority, but on authenticity and engagement.

Our goal was to develop insight in the internal levers for upscaling PSS, and apply a new tool to support companies in generating and prioritizing PSS enhancing projects.
