WHY WE CREATED LEADAPRENEUR
Why did we create Leadapreneur?
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.
We are trapped in 20th century concepts that are not relevant to our 21st Century reality.
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.
