Tripod of Work

Bioss’s perspective on leadership is distilled in the Tripod of Work.

This model emerged from decades of listening to people – at all levels of work, in diverse organisations and a multitude of cultures – talk about the conditions in which they felt they could be most effective as individuals and working together in teams.

A leader creates optimal conditions for decision-making through the key activities of Tasking, Trusting and Tending. These three ‘corners’ of the Tripod of Work in turn support the Judgement, Review and Coherence essential to the organisation’s resilience in the face of turbulence and change.
