The College of Policing will present initial findings of its review of police leadership on Friday. It will recognise the successes that current police leadership, at all levels, has delivered, but it will also show why the leadership of today will not be sufficient for the future.

Effective leadership starts with effective self-leadership. Or can you imagine a really successful leader who expects her team members to be punctual while she is late for meetings or overruns them on a regular basis?

I was lucky enough to be a part of the BBC Free Speech audience yesterday, when Ed Miliband was invited. It was an interesting experience and encompassed questions from the depths of domestic discourse, to the far reaches of foreign policy. This is my take.

The Modern Leader - Powerless, Flawed But Grounded

This humanization of leadership will lead to perhaps the most interesting element of evolution - namely, the exposure of individual values. It is here, at the core of the individual psyche, that if deserved, trust can be reforged and legitimacy rebuilt.

It sometimes feels that a week doesn't pass without a high profile example of business falling short of the standards expected by customers and wider society. In light of the tax controversy involving one of our biggest banks that continues to dominate headlines - this latest poll perhaps comes as no surprise.

Britain and Europe: Winning the Policy, Losing the Politics

It is infuriating that a forward policy towards Europe, though favoured by the public and silently shared by the leaderships of the three main parties, gets shredded by media and political expediency.

How Do We Make Britain's Boardrooms More Diverse?

Sandra Kerr | Posted 15.02.2015 | UK
Sandra Kerr

Put simply, the boardrooms of Britain's biggest businesses don't reflect the society they're operating in. And, as the BAME population - and their spending power - increases and organisations are increasingly asked about the make-up of their workforces by clients and contractors, this lack of diversity could potentially have huge impacts on their profits.

While fighting sadness, fatigue and pain over the past two years, Kate has written tirelessly about her friends, her family, her love of fashion; she's encouraged us to look at the devastating realities of Africa. She helped define who and how you can grieve if you don't know someone going through this intimately.

A Message for 2015 to Charity Sector Leaders: Step Up - or Step Aside

John Tizard | Posted 06.02.2015 | UK Politics
John Tizard

The charity and wider voluntary and community sector faces many challenges, most of which originate externally. However, I do fear that an unfortunate proportion (hopefully not too large a proportion)of these challenges are self-generated, and of these, it seems to me that far too many stem from within these organisations' executive and trustee leadership teams.

Sloppiness Is a Gender Issue

Tony Crabbe | Posted 27.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Tony Crabbe

I work with a leader who is sloppy: a bit disorganised, he forgets things and at times drops the ball. He is also extremely successful and admired. The thing is, his sloppiness is interpreted (accurately) as big thinking and creativity. It occurs to me that I don't know any women in senior positions who are also sloppy and successful; that bothers me.

The skill of dropping a ruminative cycle about what is wrong and putting attention on what is possible and what works is invaluable in any circumstance. When it comes to taking useful action, you can count on your survival brain to produce convincing reasons to procrastinate.

Sustainable Leadership vs. Natural Leadership?

Mary Daniels | Posted 20.01.2015 | UK
Mary Daniels

'Sustainable Leadership' seems to be the current buzz phrase in business. One definition of sustainability is 'conserving an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources'. What I understand this to mean is: don't take more than you need and behave in a way that benefits the whole, keeping in mind future generations.

Writing a New Story: Leadership in Changing Times

Kanada Elizabeth Gorla | Posted 18.01.2015 | UK
Kanada Elizabeth Gorla

The question is not whether we are leaders but what we are leading ourselves and others towards? Leadership is intimately bound up with narrative, and the work of developing leaders, if it is to be relevant, must concern itself with the wider context of the narratives we find ourselves in and those we are creating with every choice we make.

With the privilege of starting again, the one thing that I'd change would be to dream wild change a few years earlier, and laugh more loudly at the folk who say it can't be done. They were never going to try in the first place.

Leading With Courage While Crossing the Threshold

Giles Hutchins | Posted 14.01.2015 | UK
Giles Hutchins

The root word of 'leadership' is 'leith' which means to cross the threshold, to let go of old ways, mind-sets and logic in order to embrace the new; a new way of attending to ourselves, each other and the world. It asks us to recognise the vitality of co-creating new ways of operating beyond the confines of pre-defined outcomes, and demands a metamorphosis no less from fear to courage...
