Soul driven leadership

Six day course about building trust

Do you feel your organisation could do so much more?

But do you sometimes feel frustration, when:

  • Co-workers are disengaged and resistant to change.
  • Departments work in silos.
  • Talented people leave and it is hard to attract new ones.

‘We have tried so many different things. Why does it not work?’

This is what we at soul.com regularly hear. Different methods have been tried: an agile way of working, different leadership programs or restructuring the organisation. They all improve the organisations a bit, yet rarely lead to fundamental changes and long-term results.

The root of the problem: a lack of trust

After more than 20 years of experience, we learned that the root of the problem is a human issue: lack of trust.

In companies where trust forms the basis, we see:

  • Intrinsically motivated co-workers.
  • Knowledge being shared freely.
  • Personal initiative to make a difference.
  • Talented people at work.

you cannot solve problems
with the same level
of consciousness that created them.

A. Einstein

How can you build trust?

Building trust starts with one first step: developing a new mindset.

To help co-workers see themselves and their organisation with new eyes. A mindset that seeks new possibilities. Nurtures a desire to contribute. The Soul Driven Leadership course helps you build the capacities to create an environment of trust and learning.

Remco ten Barge, CEO at Nieuwe Stroom joined the course with his team:

Our goal was clear: to raise the percentage of new business coming from existing customers and network from 30% to 70%. After attending a marketing session by one of the Soul founders, I was convinced we could reach this goal by building a community.

In our collaboration with Soul.com, our approach in creating new business shifted completely. We used to focus our sales pitches on price, now we focus more and more on our why.

Together with Soul.com we formulated our purpose: we fast-forward towards a clean and future proof energy system. This did not only make our work a lot more meaningful and fun, it also works like a magnet in attracting new partners, customers and colleagues.

Our own collaboration also improved: Soul Driven Leadership learned us to make our decisions collectively and in unity. To stop for a moment and question our underlying assumptions, our patterns and structures. And to keep a sense of calmness.

Curious about the program?

“I have seen people change radically for the better! Leadership shifted from ‘active leading’ towards ‘facilitating’. People learned to listen more instead of just talking. People shifted from compliance towards commitment.

 

The most important result I have seen is that people from all layers of the organisation become participants of a process of change instead of spectators. The change now comes from within the people; within the organisation.”
