Cadence Leadership Advisory

Leadership is never easy

The word “cadence” has origins in business, music and athletics. The common themes are activity and rhythm – with movement and consistent action, cadence can guide you towards a position of sustainable strength and leadership skills. The truth is, leadership and organisational culture thrive with cadence and a focus on forward movement, action and consistency.

Established in July 2021, Cadence Leadership Advisory harnesses this philosophy to guide new and established leaders towards improved habits and actions to promote greater success. Focusing on learning and practical application, leadership consultant Lewis Williams develops your leadership skills to guide you towards greater success.
