[00:36] – About Simon Western

  • Dr Western is the CEO of Analytic Network Coaching.
  • He is the founder of the Eco Leadership Institute
  • Simon has a pedigree of teaching leadership internationally, and keynote speaking at international events.

04:49- What are the four different kinds of leadership?

  • First is controller leadership. And that was really about factory work, where you really control the resources.
  • And human beings are there as cogs in the wheel of the machine, so it’s all about control. 
  • Then we have therapist leadership where the idea is happy workers are more productive workers.
  • And then we have Messiah leadership, and that was about transformational leaders.
  • This idea was that you’d get this charismatic leader with a vision and everyone would follow them wonderfully.
  • Then we have eco leadership. And this phase comes about kind of in parallel to the internet to the new technologies of globalization.
  • NP and leaders are realizing that you have to think about organizations as ecosystems within ecosystems.

07:36- Are leaders born or are they made?

  • Leaders, we all have different personalities.
  • And we’re all created with our social environment.
  • So we’re made, we’re socially constructed.
  • We have different personalities, which kind of takes us in different directions.

10:59- How does culture impact coaching?

  • A lot and I think, often in the West, we don’t account for this enough.
  • But coaching, kind of the dominant force of coaching, comes from the USA.
  • They’re the dominant, the biggest publishers out there that have more coaches there than anywhere else, so people don’t think enough about how culture does impact.
  • When you’re working in different cultures, there’s a different understanding of self.
  • And I think coaching really has to kind of learn how to adapt much more.
