A Good to Great® Event

Jim Collins on Leadership

How will you scale your leadership as the demands of your business grow?


Take a deep dive into two key concepts from Jim Collins #1 New York Times bestseller; Good to Great – Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t - Level 5 Leadership and First Who, Then What.

According to the globally renowned teacher and thought-leader, Jim Collins, Level 5 Leaders display a powerful mixture of personal humility and indomitable will. They're incredibly ambitious, but their ambition is first and foremost for the cause, for the organisation and its purpose, not themselves. 

 “People are not your most important asset. The right people are.” – Jim Collins


Those who build great organisations make sure they have the right people on the bus and the right people in the key seats before they figure out where to drive the bus. They always think about first who and then what. 

When facing chaos and uncertainty, when you cannot possibly predict what's coming around the corner, your best "strategy" is to have a busload of people who can adapt and perform brilliantly no matter what comes next.

Overcoming the war on talent is one of the biggest post-pandemic challenges for leaders and managers. The best candidates are hard to find, hard to lock in and even harder to keep. 

Companies winning the war on talent understand how the workforce has evolved, communicate an inspiring vision for the future and are led by teams who care not just about their people, but the communities they serve and their impact on the planet.
