Our philosophy

About Change
Leadership is the most important factor for achieving positive change. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most important, most policies and practices register a 4 or 5.
Leadership is an 8 or 9.

About Leadership
Leaders mobilize followers to achieve shared goal. The challenge, of course, is mobilizing others to act. Leadership is also undergoing a fundamental shift. The traditional, hierarchical leadership model is giving way to collaborative approaches.

About Smart Leadership
Smart leadership is a combination of hard skills (management and political awareness), soft skills (vision, communication, emotional and social intelligence), and context. 21st Century leadership demands both hard and soft skills and provides a deep understanding of context. This is the leadership 21inc develops.

About Leadership Development
Leaders don't just appear; they are developed by others, who, seeing something special, reach out and draw them into a support system to harness a person's leadership potential and convert it into action.

Leadership in Atlantic Canada
21inc explicitly builds learning networks between diverse and inspiring groups of emerging and established provincial and regional leaders. By facilitating "creative collisions" between the people who can propel new models of leadership and action, our communities, provinces, and region will thrive in the 21st Century.
