Adopting a holistic approach of leadership in the new digitally transforming era, becoming a Compassionate Entrepreneurial Organizer (in other words understanding & taking challenges in a structured way) is a must for every leader who appreciates her role and wants to advance her business and the people involved.

What exactly is CEL?

CEL stands for Compassionate Entrepreneurial Leadership. 
To exercise CEL a leader needs to become a CEO (Compassionate Entrepreneurial Organizer). 
This particular type of CEO adopts concrete manners, assumes specific attitudes and, in general, exercises a well-defined set of operational behaviors based on an effective combination of human approach with business orientation.

A CEO Leader is at the same time a Compassionate Leader, an Entrepreneurial Leader, and an Organizing Leader. Each one of these three components includes very concrete attributes and describes one of the three vital behavior pillars of the CEO Leader.

A Compassionate Leader
is an authentic person who listens, understands, and empathizes with other people in her team and/or organization. She is also a role model who inspires people to bring out the best of their selves.
An Entrepreneurial Leader
is open-in-mind and open-to-challenges and never misses the target of the company’s well-being and growth, working consistently for a long-term sustainable success.
An Organizing Leader
is a structured, efficient, and effective leader who delivers high value results through operationally effective approaches.
