I CARE Leadership
This unique experience has enabled Chris to develop an innovative, entrepreneurial and highly effective new approach for leaders and organisations to achieve success: I CARE Leadership. Chris shows how simple, practical day to day actions can be taken to quickly deliver real improvements at all levels; individual, team and organisation. Those attending can then immediately make a real difference by implementing simple actions based on their own experience. For example, one organisation who implemented I CARE Leadership increased the number of staff happy to recommend it as “a great place to work” to friends or family in 2 years from 40% to 82%, and increased revenue by 40%. His first book on leadership published in 2000 took this approach and was translated into 11 languages as a result.
When Global Head of Leadership at UBS, 70,000 staff & 100 countries, his team helped the bank transform organisational performance to increase profitability by 235%, market capitalisation by 50% and win awards. Now a Harvard Case Study.
