Our LEEP.net Platform
Leaders typically work in communities (our term for teams, groups, etc.). They work by engaging with other people (calls, meetings, conversations, emails, etc.). Many of these interactions occur in the general flow of business and are unplanned.
A leader's success depends in large part upon the quality of these interactions. How clear the work is, how effectively it is being communicated and the individual and collective capabilities of the team that is being asked to complete it.
However, current tools cannot keep up with the rate of change in the business environment and increasing organisational complexity. Leaders are distracted by a surfeit of emails, overuse of powerpoint presentations and meeting schedules and agendas that make effective work difficult, if not near impossible.
A new approach is required to mitigate risk and improve personal and corporate performance. Our LEEP.net platform has been developed to meet this need.
LEEP combines a place to organise leadership work with powerful tools to improve team collaboration, knowledge management and learning.
LEEP is a Leadership Effectiveness and Elevation Platform
LEEP provides a bespoke online environment called a hub to support an executive community. Built to support the specific goals and work of the team it contains the next generation of tools for collaboration, knowledge management and learning.
Leaders can improve performance and improve the quality of their interactions by making the work that needs to be achieved, transparent to the team members. Making interactions more contextual, transparent and rigorous typically requires a time investment, but it leads to better relationships and outcomes.
A leadership team that effectively uses LEEP are dramatically more efficient and effective at:
- reaching and maintaining consensus;
- updating their understanding when required;
- maintaining a shared understanding of context;
- accommodating a large, diverse range of participants;
- achieving goals more quickly;
- adapting to changing circumstances;
- processing new information (and lots of it);
- developing new capabilities.
Conversely, a leadership team that cannot effectively manage knowledge, collaboration and learning finds itself stymied. Collaboration turns to chaos or freezes into bureaucratic immobility. Communication channels become confined to organisational silos. Opportunities are lost for not being seen in time, or for lack of needed capabilities, or for the inability to change direction. Planning is thwarted by loss of information or a lack of shared mental models for managing information overload and complexity.
