Mary T Tierney - The Leadership Whisperer

My Philosophy – My Why

If we are to create sustainable thriving organizations of the future, it starts with the right kind of leaders at the helm. Leaders who choose to believe that things can be better (e.g., businesses that are more creative, flowing, innovative, collaborative and highly effective).

It’s about Conscious leaders who have the will, commitment, consistency and courage to work on themselves from the inside out.

This enables enhanced communication, improved self-regulation and increased empathy resulting in more open and effective collaboration with everyone they engage with. It also leaves them with the ability to hold each other accountable, embrace uncertainty and vulnerability, have each other’s back and together co-create the solid foundation that is a culture of true psychological safety for everyone.

In such an environment, people at all levels can levels can freely express their opinions, share ideas, feel a sense of belonging, be more creative and challenge the status quo without any fear or risk of retribution.

The Meta Navigator programme offers more than cognitive learning, in addition, all learnings are offered in a way where they are truly felt, understood, integrated, practiced and sustainable. In this space, leaders are offered a new leadership paradigm – a new and better way of ‘how we do things around here.
