Guiding Principles


The core guiding principles of Platinum Leaders’ philosophy are:

  1. To grow as leaders we must grow as human beings
  2. We haven’t learnt anything new until we are doing or saying something new
  3. The most critical type of skill for good leadership is emotional skill
  4. Emotional skills can not be taught in a one-off intervention as they are learnt by changing patterns of thought, feeling and behaviour over time.
  5. The most effective ways to ensure new leadership behaviours “stick” are:
    • for a group of leaders from the same organisation to learn them together
    • to practice new skills on the job during the formal learning process
    • to build self-managed learning groups and processes that endure past the end of any leadership “program”
