True leaders create more leaders
Strong leadership builds a purpose-driven culture that attracts talent and achieves strategic goals.
At Lysna we ask relevant questions, listen and then discover the answers together. Our goal is to shift our mindsets to create a better tomorrow. Read through the examples below to see how we can help you strengthen your Leadership.
How do you relate to the following?
Keeping your purpose alive
How dusty or alive is the why, or raison d’être, of your organisation?
Have you considered the benefits of having a meaningful purpose for your employees, customers and partners?
How connected are you to your why as a leader?
Losing track of your purpose makes you less attractive to the desirable customers, partners and employees.
Underestimating the impact of people connecting meaning to their work life can be expensive! You will be more profitable by truly valuing purpose and people over profit.
In his research, author Raj Sisodia, found that purpose-driven companies outperformed the S&P 500 by a factor of 14.
“During the ’CORE’ workshop days we sensed, aligned and created our purpose, principles, and vision. Afterwards, the people we interviewed for job-openings expressed excitement around our stronger core. We see that a strong core helps attracting talent.”

Recognising negative patterns that are preventing change
If a company’s culture is not cohesive, strategy can be hard to execute.
Are you able to recognise when company culture gets in the way of you achieving strategic goals?
Organisations are systems and systems have the tendency to repeat patterns.
In our experience, you save on resources when you really understand the frustrating or toxic patterns in your organisation.
Sometimes the negative patterns in your organisation are even linked to leadership team’s behaviour.
“ We enabled entrepreneurship in our institution last year, which back-fired in the organisation. Taking a deep dive into this resistance alowed us to see that the ranking needed to be different. Entrepreneurship is important to us, but it is number 2 not 1. Now we can build on to this. ”

Ensuring hierarchy isn't preventing adaptivity and connectedness.
Some organisations have so many layers of hierarchy in their organisational structure that they struggle to adapt and stay connected to employees and customers. Lack of purpose combined with leadership steering from the top can increase 'pseudo work' (the feeling of working hard but not achieving much) and burn out.
Are you allowing people to potentially burn out in your organisation?
Your organisational chart is obsolete.
In a fast-paced world, a layered hierarchy is slow and produces pseudo work, tedious processes and rules that prevent people from doing their job and making customers happy.
Why not organise your organisation in a more collaborative and adaptive way?
“We got help from Lysna to avoid stumbling in the hierarchy and create a healthy organisation without multiple layers of management. Now we perform at our best because clear distribution of power and responsibilities makes it easy to get the job done - both individually and collaboratively.”
