The EB Qualities of Practice concept enlivens and enriches the work of developing leadership.  It is positive and additive, expanding the understanding of leadership-in-practice. By thinking in terms of adding value through a wide range of leadership qualities of practice,  it creates a more generative picture of what leadership looks like, and challenges the out-dated, relatively narrow picture of leadership that stubbornly persists in many minds.

The distinctive Qualities of Practice processes are grounded in robust research and are designed to suit this dynamic and evolving world, generating leadership insights that are relevant to context and need.

I was astonished at how quickly the group moved into meaningful discussion about issues of inclusive leadership that had previously been seen as too uncomfortable and tricky to broach.
