Leading Lotus Background

Inspired by the Lotus

The Lotus is famous for its symbolic reverence in ancient and spiritual cultures. However, the plant’s true inspiration is in its extraordinary biology. Leading Lotus shares this vision with the plant on three core values.

The self-sustaining plant has been thriving for over 135 million years in difficult, unpredictable environments. The unprecedented resilience and longevity of the plant are key characteristics any successful business aspires to achieve and maintain. Leading Lotus provides a unique providence in making mindful and sustainable choices that are timeless and organically inspired.

The radical biology of the plant gives it an unparalleled ability to grow flawlessly, high above murky waters. Every business is faced with uncertain situations, challenging decisions and volatile environments. Often these situations or business decisions are resolved using unclear, contaminated or unreliable data and mental models. Leading Lotus aspires to create clarity in murkiness, and to naturally align decisions with a company’s innate resilience to grow and achieve a desired culture through the integration of intellectual and unbiased intuition.

The Lotus is an inclusive, symbiotic organism that stimulates diversity in an aquatic environment. It is a rich food and mineral source to all lifeforms. It provides shelter in the shared habitat, and it can remarkably generate heat like warm-blooded animals to support pollinating insects. Similarly, the Leading Lotus methodology allows businesses and communities to thrive by mindfully interweaving diversity into the organization as an innate culture.
