The rapid pace of multiple changes happening in business simultaneously means leading at the organization level requires different behaviors now than in the past. All sectors are impacted by changes regarding stakeholders, technology, and profit models. The constant uncertainty strains relationships, burdens operating systems, and stifles performance of even the best companies and leaders. This new model can help steer strategic and development focus.

Outdated leadership behaviors lead to business failures, as we continue to see in banking, retail, hospitality, and more. Companies reluctant to adapt to contemporary business requirements will not be able to keep up with those willing to serve and function differently. The Fortune 500 roster from the year 2000 proves how essential new leadership practices are for sustainability: More than half of the companies on it no longer exist.

The new 5 A's of Leadership Now enables leaders to build and grow sustainable organizations during the complex business environment of the 21st century. It was created through a collaboration with Chief Learning Officers and Professors, and it is based on research, experience, and real company examples.

The 5 A's of Leadership Now was inspired by Chief Learning Officers from leading companies who struggled to find a model relevant to their current business challenges. With support from them and from professors at Rockhurst University and Kansas University: Edwards Campus, the 5 A’s of Leadership Now model was published in 2018. It is based on research and real-world experience, and it can be integrated into existing LD/OD practices. Whether you have a robust OD/LD practice or not, you can use this model to ensure your leadership practices and behaviors are modern and support your mission.

Voyage Consulting Group can help design the integration, deliver an overview of the model, deliver modules as needed, or provide modules for companies to use themselves. All of our solutions are customized around client development objectives, and all are guaranteed to deliver as promised.
