Re:markable, the employee development organisation, is joining forces with a leadership company to expand into new markets.
It has become the exclusive partner of Intent-Based Leadership (IBL) founded by American leadership specialist and former US nuclear submarine commander David Marquet.
Re:markable, formerly Investors in People Scotland, will roll out Intent-Based Leadership across England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
IBL evolved after Mr Marquet transformed the US Navy’s worst performing submarine into the highest achieving operational vessel and went on to write the Forbes best-seller Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of turning Followers into Leaders.
IBL aims to improves business performance by shifting power and responsibility in the workplace and providing practical tools to enable people to think, behave and talk like a leader.
Peter Russian, CEO of Re:markable, said: “Quality of leadership is one of the biggest issues facing businesses today. Our experience shows traditional programmes aren’t producing sustainable results. A new approach to leadership is required to respond to today’s fast changing world.
“Intent-Based Leadership marks a different way of thinking and a shift away from traditional models which divide people into leaders and followers.
“We are offering organisations a new approach which will impact on the way people operate across every level of the workforce – involving and empowering people and giving control and authority has been proven to lead to better customer experiences, increased loyalty and revenue.
“With recent research showing only 11% of people in the UK feel actively engaged with their job, Intent-Based Leadership can drive the change needed to create leaders of the future.”
Mr Marquet said: “We have worked informally with Re:markable for a number of years and are confident that our partnership will deliver something valuable and new to organisations. Peter Russian and his entire team have truly embraced the IBL concept and believe passionately in its power to change workplace culture and create better leaders of the future.
“For me, a happy and healthy workplace is one in which all employees are engaged and can contribute to their full capacity. Intent-Based Leadership was founded on the experience and principles of giving control and driving decision making at all levels – creating leaders, not followers – to ultimately deliver success.”
