CogitoPraxis advice to leaders and future leaders aims to guide them in understanding and exercising authentic influence and disciplined leadership. Successful professionals progress in three career phases. First, they are recruited as highly skilled technicians. In the second phase, they can no longer succeed just by doing their jobs. They must succeed by how they do their jobs. They need to deploy soft skills and authentic influence. In the third career phase, they lead their organisations. They now need to incorporate the qualities of disciplined leadership into their professional personalities and performance. At CogitoPraxis we accompany mid-career emerging talents to assist them to make the transition from being providers of work product into becoming personages of influence. We counsel leaders, not least those who have recently been elevated into top leadership positions, in facing the continuous challenges of disciplined leadership – challenges which we can help them to shape, to meet and to master.
