BELIEVERSHIP –The Superpower Beyond Leadership


Exploring experiences and history from high-altitude to the depths, from many perspectives, the compelling challenge, in clear view, remains ignored: We have a leadership crisis and our beliefs, informing the identification and selection of leaders is based on a flawed myth. In this new, non-industrial era, prescriptive authority, our heritage, is proving harmful. People are, tired, broken, and scared. This pattern of oppression has lowered our human capacity to an alarming level, still declining, in this time of disruption and transformation, when we need to be enthusiastic, resilient, and hopeful.

Change is more rapid and more significant than at any time in history, and we are not preparing people for the journey ahead. Companies, industries, and economies are being overwhelmed, and many of them are declining and are in crisis. Some are disappearing. Intelligent, market-leading companies recognize these significant shifts and are acting to transform the future of work, shifting the focus back to the most critical component – people. Great leaders are unique individuals with a myriad of personalities, skills, and characteristics. So is each employee. Honoring each person’s unique talent is the powerful differentiator for future success, looking beyond similarities and exploring what happens when you embrace the unique gifts of each individual, unleashing their superpower.

Believership is a higher form of leadership, igniting purpose and the power of many moving in the same direction. While leadership forges a path, Believership becomes a paved road for many to travel together.

Believership is all about bringing the true self to leadership and all employees in order to create value rather than extract value, drawing out the collective effort of the team. 

Believership enables understanding throughout the company or team, and therefore harnesses and magnifies cooperative effort and sense of belonging. It addresses the doubts and challenges, through alignment of vision and mission. Believership brings a good heart, inclusion, diversity and caring to leadership. It lifts others at every level through choice rather than command. Accordingly, Believership is all about bringing the true self to leadership and all employees in order to create value rather than extract value, drawing out the collective effort of the team.  It is about authenticity, trust, empowerment, and inspiration, about sustainable growth and extraordinary performance, and it has the potential to bring joy to the team. The purpose of this book is to inspire better Leadership and swift Innovation. Meeting the chaotic challenges we face today requires big shifts in the way we organize, operate, structure, lead and manage people and teams. Establishing the experience set forward in this book, the human-based framework, will last beyond the heightened and accelerated attainment of goals and objectives. People will find meaning and happiness. It is not only what we accomplish but who we become along the journey. The only thing that gets in the way of extraordinary transformation is the belief that it can’t be done.
