Chief Heart Officer
At the age of 25, two significant things happened in the life of our founder. He became a parent and a line manager for the first time.
Ryan was a student of all things psychology and making great progress in his career with the Police. While he was on a leadership development programme, he realised that his greatest leadership role was in fact in the home.
He realised that leadership wasn't a rank, position or a title. It was in fact the act of loving, serving and caring for other people and leaving them better. Amazing what revelations come during a 3am night feed!
Since that realisation over a decade ago, Ryan has devoted himself to nurturing and developing the leadership capability within people.
At Always Better than Yesterday we define leadership as:
"THE ACT OF PUTTING OUR OWN NEEDS TO ONE-SIDE TO SERVE OTHERS"
We like that there is something called "servant leadership" but this would imply that there are other types of leadership. We believe that leadership without service is not leadership.
Why don't we get the leaders we deserve?
Based on our definition, leadership requires three things;
We don't get the leaders we deserve because they didn't sign up for this model of leadership. They signed up to be served rather than to serve. This means when things get difficult (which they will), they would rather sacrifice others than themselves.
When we are serving and sacrificing, we are likely to experience stress and pressure. This is going to trigger our chimp response (fight, flight or freeze). As leaders, we have to be able to lead ourselves away from our chimp response to our chosen response.
Embracing risk requires courage.
The root of the word courage is couer, which in French translates as HEART.
Great leaders have great mindsets and great skillsets. But the greatest leaders among us are tethered to something far more powerful. They lead from their HEARTSET.
Many lead with their mind yet fail to find connection, meaning, belonging and fulfilment.
Those leading from their HEARTSET find meaning in something greater than themselves which enables them to focus on others.
They also know that to be the best for others, they must first lead themselves to needing nothing from the world.
A leader who is a disciplined follower of love and provides themselves all they need is capable of leading from love and not for love.
Heart-centred leaders follow a different model of success from the rest of the world. They lead from who they are not where they are. They see success as a state of being rather than a state of having or doing.
At Always Better than Yesterday, we believe true success is being someone we love, doing what we love, with people that we love.
The mind can achieve great things, but unless it is connected to our heart, we run the risk of facing that 'penguins of Madagascar' moment, when we look around at our life and utter..."well this sucks".
Fortunately, we have created a model to help leaders overcome that.
The heart-centred leaders we develop aren't heart only. They are simply engaged at the heart first.
Here are the hallmarks of our heart-centred approach.
Our Heart-Centred Model
Heartset - who we are, what we stand for and what we care about
Mindset - how we think, learn and find the best strategy
Skillset - how we serve people
Community - who we serve and leave better than yesterday
This approach helps people to express themselves through their leadership rather than be defined by it.
Understanding Your Heart
Our hearts so often transcend our understanding.
Through years of exploring our own heart and helping thousands of leaders connect with theirs, we have developed a framework that guarantees heart connection.
We use this framework to help develop heart-centred leaders, teams, culture and companies from a range of diverse backgrounds and sectors.
Heartset - leading from our character, purpose and values
Heartwork - using our gifts to serve others
Heartbeat - creating heart-centred teams and cultures
Likehearted - finding people who share our values
Greenhouse - creating environments in which people grow
Heartprint® - leaving a legacy where those around us are left better than yesterday
