How we work

The core principles making CFL a “companion” for leadership.

We enable leaders to capitalise on mutually reinforcing virtuous growth cycles that ‘synergise’ and can efficiently cultivate Leadership Wisdom in Action™ that powers progress for the many, not the few.

Multi-layered interventions

Transforming a human being or system is complex. No ‘one size’ fits all. We build journeys, as well as programmes, to ensure you find success.

Our approach is human-orientated

We work effectively with emotional intimacy, trust, creativity, and responsibility.

Curious and inquiring

We are profoundly attuned to discovery.

Open, facilitative, and emergent

To be truly transformative our work brings together direction, facilitation, and rapport.

Personal and Professional

We believe in growing the person while developing the leader

Needs-led, not model-led

Our work responds to your context and specific situations, not shaped by a rigid model.

Addressing all levels of the system

We support at individual, team, systemic, and/or large-scale organisational levels.

Leading can be, and probably will always be a lonely place.

It doesn’t need to be. Our companionship goes beyond the ‘trusted adviser’ or ‘coach’. It is a new paradigm for supporting organisational objectives.

CFL has accompanied leaders and organisations globally for decades. We have designed and delivered complex individual and team culture transformation work (reaching up to 150,000 people) for global corporations, as well as for governments, private companies and family businesses.

Wisdom has always been important in every human culture…

…it allows individuals, groups, institutions, and other ecosystems to meet, address, and respond to the challenges of Existence. This nexus of existence and experience is all about…
