What roles do you play in interaction with others? Facilitator? Leader?  What is the difference?  
 
Out in Front
 is a program, an approach, a set of learning experiences, to recognise and celebrate these key statements:
  • Effective leaders are facilitators; effective facilitators are leaders 
  • Being an effective leader and facilitator is not just about doing or having 
  • You can be a leader and facilitator without having an official title or assigned authority 
  • You can be a leader without sitting in the big chair at the head of the table or in the big office  
  • You can be a facilitator without standing up in the front of the room  
   
'Out in Front
'
 
This reference to being 'out in front' is not about your geographic position in a room or an event, or about your relative financial or hierarchical status, or about who has the most
experience, knowledge and skills.  
 
It is much more about your character, and your standing, with others and with yourself.  
 
 

'The Facilitative Leader'
 

In our way of thinking, your effectiveness does not come from competing, and being 'out in front' of others.  
It comes from connecting, and being 'out in front' with others.

 
It comes from
a character of authenticity, integrity, respect and trust.
 
It comes from what this character means:
  • for meaningful connections and effective communication with others
  • for the influence you have with others, and that you invite others to have with you
  • for the learning you offer others, and the learning you earn from others 
  • for the contribution you make with and for others, your positive and enduring legacy
 This is how leadership performance looks when people really matter to us.
 
 

'The Way'
 
We offer no set prescriptions, trite answers, or dogma.
 
Our program is focused on helping you to find your singular path.

 
We offer you access to skill sets, practical understandings and support along your path.
 
So 'The Way' is really Your Own Way. 
And what you find along the path, and at the end of it, is
what only you could have made.
 
This is how the leadership journey looks when we are true to ourselves.
