Leadership encompasses many diverse skills but to be a successful leader you do not personally need all of them. Leadership is about how to accommodate and propel many diverse skilled people in a common mission. Leadership is a journey not a destination.
We believe it is fundamental to first know how to truly lead yourself and be able to decipher what leadership skills come naturally to you and then to be yourself.
Next, it is important to focus on developing your emotional awareness and maturity that will be key to developing around you the correct blend of styles and skills to complement your own. Overcoming any urges to clone in order to reinforce your viewpoint or stance is paramount to inspiring leadership.
From then on you/we will be able concentrate on how to promote the necessary leadership skills throughout all levels of the organisation, how to foster trust and respect, how to unlock creative energy wherever it exists, how to move out of the comfort zone where necessary, and how to mobilize colleagues to execute strategy and action plans.
Gaining knowledge of how to create momentum, vitality and excitement among your teams produces a shared, valued and powerful experience that contributes significantly to a healthy and successful organisation.
