One question led to discovery
Leadership Speaker Philippines. The Filipino ancestors built the rice terraces out of the Cordillera Mountains about 2,000 years ago. It's located in northern Philippines. They did that using a unique form of leadership.
When compared with other Wonders of the Ancient World, the Ifugao Rice Terraces outshine them. Many world wonders were built by either salaried skilled workers or slaves.
However, the Ifugao Rice Terraces were built differently. They were constructed by freemen who acted through a deep sense of trust, humanity, and collaboration.
No single leader was ever identified for its creation. Why? Because, as it turned out, the people themselves were collectively the leader.
The idea of "not having a leader at the helm of an incredible human achievement" is where Stepback Leadership originated from.
Stepback is about putting the people at the center of leadership. This is exactly the lost Filipino brand of leadership. We intend to bring this back to organizations.
We have been introduced to so many leadership principles, concepts, insights, and ideas over the years. Some of them work. Some don’t. Some do work for a while. Some never work at all. Some take time to take effect. Some take effect instantly.
Yet, despite putting all those principles to a test, many of us still remain wondering if there’s one thing, one principle that works for everything. Well, there is none.
But one thing is for sure. The leadership philosophy that always works is one that fits the identity of the people and culture of the organization.
Stepback is a practice of putting the people at the center of leadership. It existed since more than 2,000 years ago as the original leadership art of the Filipinos that was long forgotten because of a series of invasions that happened since 1521. It fits our identity as a people and it’s endemic in our culture.
This work is an addition to the already crowded leadership playbooks written by leadership gurus from all over the world. I hope I can say many of them are right but the more I got deeper in understanding our own leadership, I can straightforwardly say, many of them are wrong.
For hundreds of years, we’ve been applying western principles in an eastern community where collaboration is preferred over competition. We’ve followed the advice of foreign authors who’ve never been to the Philippines and have no inkling about who we are as a people, haven’t read our story, or haven’t make themselves familiar with our history.
To do this, we send our leadership speakers in the Philippines to discuss this topic.
We've got to agree. There are hundred leadership speakers in the Philippines. Chances are, you've picked one who didn't live up to the hype of his profile. This article presents several ways on how be an expert leadership speaker.
The Philippines is home to natural beauty. And we need not change that. We are naturally beautiful inside and out. Yet, we often feel lacking. Thus, ungrateful. We feel we're not enough. Then, we find ourselves wanting for more.
