Who are Votive Leadership?

About Votive

At the very heart of all business growth sits our people. It is they that make things happen. They deliver on the corporate promise and make the difference we all hope to make in this world. It is also they that fuel the drive and ambition behind Votive Leadership Consultancy.


For over ten years the consultancy has been involved in releasing the potential that lies within the corporate workforce, be they nurses, engineers, top executives, computer programmers or government workers. Our programmes are tailored to each client and are designed to make the individual think, to act and to inspire. They bring teams together; they create alignment, measurably improve employee engagement and ultimately deliver meaningful results.


Our approach is innovative, fresh and fit for the new working environment. We energise (or “Votivate” as one client remarked) and focus on one simple, clearly defined outcome; the release of the potential that lies within.

Going beyond the leadership paradigm

Lets face it, leadership is a bit of an industry, with literally hundreds of people and organisations offering their services to improve the quality of this vital component. And yet despite all these ‘experts’, overall employee engagement remains stubbornly mediocre. Surely an obvious by-product of good leadership is high employee engagement? Perhaps our thinking and philosophy is not fit for the 21st century?

At Votive we have taken leadership and moved it up a gear. Good leaders inspire followers, but we must not forget that leaders are followers themselves. But do we ever provide guidance and support to our leaders and employees on what makes an Effective Follower?

Effective Followership is a programme element designed to get delegates to consider their own behaviour choices and the subsequent impact these will have on the team.

Our model clearly defines four key behaviour traits: Sheep, Yes, Alien and Effective. No individual is Effective all of the time. Our hard-wired mental maps keep pulling us into “Survival Thinking” and as such potential is lost. The key to Effective Followership is the creation of a ‘local’ environment and climate that will allow individuals to access Effective Follower traits more of the time. This is about the culture a leader creates within their team. But of course for a leader to be effective they have to demonstrate high levels of Effective Follower traits themselves. This can only be done through increased awareness.

Our programme raises awareness, creates ownership and builds on the foundations that will currently exist. Above all our programme produces results.
