The purpose of Leadapreneur as a company is to democratise the ability to make your world a better place. Jessica and I co-founded Leadapreneur to build the people who can build a better world. We realised that a better world doesn’t just happen, it must be built by people who have the skill and will to build their dreams. What was missing was a framework to do this in the 21st Century realty. What should you do if you want to be successful? A degree? An MBA? Become a manager? A leader? An entrepreneur? We think we should be more than all of those, we should become leadapreneurs.
Why should we separate leadership, management and innovation skills? It’s obvious that we need all 3 of these skills to be successful today. Our key insight came from complexity science and the fact that that all systems must demonstrate 3 critical behaviours; creating solutions, adapting to change and optimising performance. A successful system is successful because it correctly deploys the right behaviour at the right time to achieve its goal. This enabled us to understand that 1 person should be able to deploy these three skills and so we created the term ‘leadapreneur’ to describe the synthesis of leadership, management (the middle a in leadapreneur!) and entrepreneurship skills in one person. Simply put, a leadapreneur has a superior and more relevant skillset to a traditional manager and that is why the future belongs to the leadapreneur.. We don’t think you want to hire someone with a degree, we believe you want to hire a leadapreneur; an agile digital innovator who rapidly deliver the solutions that grow the business. It’s time to be more than a manager, it’s time become a leadapreneur
