The sizzle or the sausage?

Posted by Steve Read on January 26, 2015

I’ve had more Action Centred Leadership (ACL) in the last week than I could shake a stick at.  It’s a good problem to have though.  We were very privileged in that we had John Adair with us in Cambridge, doing a short tour of some of our clients, and talking to quite a wide audience through some more public events.

The feedback from all quarters was remarkable.  “I wish we could do this every Monday morning” said a Partner at one client following a morning with John.   Another said “It was a privilege to meet you and it gave us some very helpful insights and thoughts to reflect on. I will consider ways in which we could involve your organisation in work here”.  I very much hope they do.

In John’s words ‘you need the sausages before the sizzle’.  Absolutely right.  ACL is the core framework - the sausage if you like, and it is the effort of managers and leaders that provides the sizzle or the buzz about leadership in any organisation.  New is not necessarily better.

Thanks for coming John.  Let’s do it again soon.
