Leaders can learn to lead from a place of stillness – recognizing their own potential to react to situations and seeking to be free of clouded judgement by remaining open and aware of what is happening.

The Secret Life of Leadership Rocks

Rocks are referred to frequently in leadership literature — from “bedrocks” to “big rocks” and “touchstones” to “cornerstones.” In Aotearoa, rocks occupy an important space in Māori culture. Professor Chellie Spiller opens a window on this Indigenous wisdom, raising intriguing questions for leaders on the role rocks play in their organizations and their practice of leadership.
