We know that in an increasingly complex world the boundaries between organisations, communities, markets and the environment have dissolved. Great leadership sits at the heart of human connection, and great human connection sits at the heart of organisational success. Great leadership and great human connection in organisations has never been more important than now.
At The JUNO Institute we are passionate about great leadership and great human connection in organisations. Leadership, not in the trite, slogan-y or aphorismic sense, no, at The JUNO Institute leadership is a way of being, it is a social process, it is about having a lasting positive influence on others. Great leadership leads to great results.
We live our leadership passion through our Community and NGO Partnership programs, transforming the lives of those in sectors of society often forgotten and neglected.
We are also set up to work in partnership with Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Resources, and other Leadership Teams on Organisational-Leadership and we work intensively and extensively with individuals on Self-Leadership.
At JUNO we create learning contexts that are unique, challenging yet manageable. Our workshops are live learning spaces and support experiences that quickly apply into the work context. We adopt a learning process that both challenges and empowers individuals to work with greater purpose, passion, flexibility and risk.
We believe that when you clarify your life purpose and become more conscious you are in a much better place to bring your whole self to work and optimise your leadership effectiveness. Through gaining self-awareness, exploring life and leadership purpose and clearly understanding behaviors and motivations individuals are able to ask tough questions and master their own thoughts and behaviours and consequently, leadership style. A key learning for individuals is to develop flexibility in thinking and doing and learn how to more effectively engage and motivate others.
Adaptation takes time and persistence. It is not just the bringing to “awareness” of what needs to change, but also the development of new capacities and shifts in mindsets. The learning journey is structured to allow participants the time it takes to think through layers and make the changes that will “stick”.
The JUNO Institute seeks to develop people who can see beyond their ‘four walls’ to the more adaptive challenges and opportunities that exist in the world. We know that in an increasingly complex world there are no longer any boundaries between organisations, communities, markets and the environment.
Fundamental to our learning design is the requirement to create learning contexts that are unique, challenging yet manageable. Our workshops are live learning spaces and support experiences that quickly apply into the work context. At JUNO we adopt a learning process that both challenges and empowers individuals to work with greater purpose, passion, flexibility and risk.
Our programs teach and explore:
JUNO’s interventions are supported by the approach that organisational change requires developing groups of individuals to work with purpose, to take responsibility beyond their formal authority, and to provide them with the skills, capacity and resiliency to operate and thrive in challenging and uncertain environments.
People are invited to come into the program as learners, not experts, and to be open to having their values questioned and challenged. In an environment of stark contrast with the structures and demands that pervade most of our everyday working lives, the program provides participants with a good opportunity to remove the masks and be open, generous, adventurous and vulnerable.
