Leadership & Humility
'Central to effective leadership is trust, respect and openness; listen and learn from your staff, clients, mentors and coaches and adjust yourself on your journey to becoming a proficient effective leader; build a bridge and get over yourself – don't let your ego get in the way; follow through; don't assume anything; be available and responsive; it's important to remember that helping other helps you.'
Vision & Purpose
'Is your vision and purpose viable? Can it make money and be self sustaining? As leaders we need to create a compelling vision and purpose which is built on sound values that our people want embrace and manifest. To get traction we need a clear strategy with real resources to give our people a plan and tools to get started. Then we can train them up and get out of their way so they can make it happen and produce amazing results.'
The seminal work of Jim Collin's – Good to Great...Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't – showed that effective leaders are decisive NOT autocratic.
This and other research has consistently proven that leaders who have a compelling vision and purpose supported by a sound actionable strategy, are decisive and show initiative, have the ability to incorporate creative solutions and stay positive and constructive in their communication style not only has higher performing teams with better financial results, but teams where workers feel empowered and inspired.
In leadership it is important to keep your eyes on the ball – we are living in a world where the marketplace is forever changing shape. Change is always on the doorstep of any forward moving organisation and as leaders we have to be able to cope with the change in a seamless and fluent format that limits the stress levels for both ourselves and our team.
No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.
