As the tensions between interdependence and diversity escalate, the individualistic, competitive, charismatic leadership strategies, whelped on the American frontier will no longer work.”

Jean Lipman-Blumen, author of Connective Leaders.

 The Vision of Healthy Organizations!

To be effective and succerssful management cannot ignore links and relatiolnships.  This aspect of the COMANDTM model utilizes the principals embedded in the Systemic view.  As it is a characteristic of systems, the message of Connectivity is to remind us that every living and non-living system in the universe functions through links and relationships. More importantly that these links and relationships impact the entire system including its sub-systems.  In this model, there are two aspects to Connectivity.

1.  Greater System that Governs: 

Observation, Reflection, Learning, Reliance and Trust in connectedness to a greater system of intuition and nature as seen and experienced as those systems that function effortlessly.

2.  Connectivity as Links & Relationships:

It is through connections that any system is able to function. Everything is connected and every connection has a purpose, a goal, a reason for being.

In training leaders, we utilize the principals explained by Connective Leadership.

Connective Leaders have managed to change the world against all odds.  There are 3 types to Connective Leadership:  Relational, Instrumental, and Direct.  This model helps analyze leadership and specific leaders in terms of their underlying behavioral preferences, called achieving styles.  Read more about Connective Leadership.
