Leadership

In today's business world, we cannot simply rely on generic leadership competencies. Your leadership brand must be built for your specific business strategy and client expectations. It is important to understand that there is not just one leadership style. The key to success is to encourage many styles of leadership, because diverse leaders contribute to a more diverse organisation as a whole.

 

  • Flexibility and adaptability is rapidly becoming the most valued leadership trait.

  • Leaders need to energize teams through inclusiveness and connection with people... building loyalty and commitment.

  • Leaders need to have imagination and the courage to take risks on both people and ideas.

  • Leaders need to be clear thinkers who can simplify strategy into specific actions, making quick decisions and communicating priorities. Leaders need to create an external focus that defines success in the terms of their business.

  • Leaders need to have expertise in their function or domain, using depth as a source of confidence to drive change.

  • Leaders need to engage their followers.

 

Selecting the right leaders to match your leadership brand can be a daunting task, because there are so many factors to consider. Many organisations feel that the leadership process stops after selection, but that is not the case. It is the responsibility of every organisation to ensure that their leaders are performing and continually developing and growing.

 

When choosing the appropriate leader for your organisation, it is important to avoid pitfalls such as confusing a high performer for a high potential candidate. A high performance candidate may excel at their current position but struggle in a higher level role because of higher demands. The importance of selecting a well-rounded high performance AND high potential leader is imperative to your and their overall success. Once you have made your selection, the challenge of ensuring the new leader is successful and effective continues. The leader must be developed and challenged to become the perfect fit for leading the organisation to meet your corporate objectives. Organisations too often fail to realise that continued development is an integral part of leadership. Development comes from job experience, relationships with others within the organisation, and continual education. It also comes from self-realisation and authenticity.
