The Alchemy of The Essential Fifth Element

The Essential Fifth Element highlights interdependence between the workplace practices described in each of the four Elements. Research demonstrates that each Element is influenced, for better or worse, by the extent to which the practices within it are aligned with those of the others.

In short, leaders need to take a systemic view of their own organisational structures and practices. Creating the culture of innovation and enterprise needed for the twenty-first century requires tenacity. It means challenging deeply embedded attitudes and behaviours, asking difficult questions, and being open to experiences from a diverse range of other organisations.

By focusing on the structures and processes that our teams work with, we are able to free them from bureaucracy. With this new-found freedom they’re innovating and improving – that is the power of The Essential Fifth Element.
