Leadership today is more about creating teams than hierarchies, more about understanding than dictating, and more about being present than remote.
Teams are different today. Motivation is different. Carrots and sticks aren’t a good motivator any more, if ever they were. The modern leader can’t be remote, hidden away, they need to be visible and involved.
Leadership today is more relational than transactional, it all means a different and better approach to leadership is required. Leadership today cannot be confined to a few selected people. Leadership today needs to be demonstrated by everybody in the organisation. People need to feel able to lead their own role, their function, to develop and improve as circumstances and situations demand. Whilst making the organisation more agile, it also nurtures, grows and develops new senior leaders within the organisation.
Develop your personal leadership and time management skills so you can positively influence and persuade others, handle difficult situations and increase your resilience when under pressure.
The first priority of any leader is to make effective and sound decisions. Good decision making is a fundamental part of successful leadership. The critical decisions you make will determine the success of your organisation, your team and of yourself. You're having to make decisions every day, every hour. The easier this becomes, the more effective you will be.
You are a role model for other leaders, your managers and staff. You’re defining the behaviours, workplace culture and acceptable way of working for the rest of the organisation or team. They will follow in your footsteps. Your day-to-day behaviours will affect your company’s or team’s performance more than anything else.
A leader needs to build strong working relationships with their managers, partners, suppliers and employees. They need to build exceptional teams if they are to deliver an exceptional customer experience. To be an effective leader you need to create high performance teams built with effective working relationships.
