Flow Leadership Principles Workshop

Proven to Perform: Using the science of flow and optimal performance to get ready for the future demands of leadership.

Leadership is evolving

In today's business world, characterised by its high complexity and rapid change, navigating the corporate landscape can often feel akin to driving through fog at an accelerating pace.


This environment calls for a new paradigm of leadership, a necessity that many organisations are finding themselves dramatically underprepared to address. Statistics paint a stark reality: over 60% of the workforce is disengaged, pointing to a widespread failure to fully harness the potential and capacity of people at work.

Leadership for a modern era

Contemporary challenges, such as managing hybrid work, navigating digital

transformation and leading in times of volatility, are often inadequately addressed, as such the traditional modalities of leadership are increasingly being called into question.


Most organisations are aware of the leadership challenges they face and that are detrimentally impacting performance.  The efforts to rectify the challenge are evident in the staggering $60 billion that is spent globally by businesses on leadership development programs.  However, this considerable investment often fails to yield the expected rewards.


In fact one estimate suggest that only about 10% of spending on corporate leadership training delivers tangible results. 

Only 41% of employees are achieving optimal performance – Gartner

48% of staff plan to look for a new role within next 12 months – Gallop

65% of workers are stressed – Gallop

Where is the gap?

The problem is that most organisations haven’t done the work to develop a leadership philosophy.  A framework that covers the key leadership principles that guide how all leaders in the organisations show up every day and lead. 


A clear and articulated leadership philosophy is a powerful tool that anchors the organisations culture and ensures that any leadership development is anchored to what actually drives HUMAN performance and engagement for the organisation.

A leadership philosophy proven to perform

Flow Leadership stands as a beacon of innovation, offering a fresh perspective perfectly aligned with the challenges of our times. It advocates a transformation of organisations into dynamic performance systems, where leadership is not a centralised authority but a distributed capability, and nurturing growth is a priority for all.



Built on decades of scientific research and insights gleaned from working with elite

professionals, Flow Leadership seeks to unlock the systemic code that allows all professionals to be their best. It moves beyond traditional leadership models focused on personal attributes or task execution. Instead, Flow Leadership fosters principles and practices that enable both organisations and individuals within them to reach their full potential.

The workshop was delivered to a varied audience at OIST from researchers to community members. The session delivered cutting-edge neuroscience on flow and was delivered in a way that was accessible to all. We enjoyed it very much and feel it has already made a difference in the lives of many of the attendees, and the group as a whole. Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology
