People Centred Leadership
People centred leadership is a mindset.
Every interaction impacts people’s lives. We can lift others through our behaviour. We can show we care about people.
None of these things cost money, it’s about how we choose to be in our daily interactions. We can choose to appreciate the goodness in people.
Cultivating humanity in workplaces starts with leaders appreciating that they are human too. It means acknowledging we can all get things wrong some time.
People centred leaders create environments where people feel they matter. They recognise that leadership influences lives. They understand the basic needs of people. We all want to feel safe, feel appreciated, be healthy and able to grow and find meaning in our work and lives.
Historically, people have often been objectified and used for organisational success. Our hierarchical management systems condition us to see human centricity as a ‘soft’ option.
At Apex HR we reject that. To build successful and sustainable organisations we have to people first. What other way is there?
We need a better, kinder, and more sustainable, ethical approach to business in the modern world. It’s not a soft option. We need to humanise workplaces and develop leaders with a people-centred mindset.
