LEADERSHIP IS A PROCESS OF SOCIAL INFLUENCE, WHICH MAXIMISES THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A SHARED GOAL.
Thursday, July 19, 2012
We are frequently taught that leaders, especially aspiring leaders, should hide weaknesses and mistakes. This view is flawed. It is not only good to admit you are wrong when you are; but also it can also be a powerful tool for leaders—actually increasing legitimacy and, when practiced regularly, can help to build a culture that actually increases solidarity, innovation, openness to change and many other positive features of organisational life.
What do the recent Barclays LIBOR scandal and the ‘humiliating shambles’ of the G4S Olympics security operation have in common?
One thing is certain – leadership which has failed to deliver optimum performance and results when put under pressure.
Leadership cannot exist in a vacuum in any organisation – it impacts business strategy in a multitude of ways. Oftentimes, leaders fail to appreciate this connection or at the very least, are unprepared for the effects of pressure on strategy and behaviour.
Executing business strategy successfully in situations of high pressure and delivering optimum results requires proven leadership which appreciates the underpinning importance of a values based leadership culture throughout the organisation.
At Positive Leadership, we have developed a proprietary values based approach to optimising business results. For us, it is the interaction and close synergy between leadership values and business strategy that delivers such an outcome on a consistent basis. Our Values of Positive Leadership™ are based on extensive research and many years of business experience.
We work with our clients advising them on how to excel under pressure. Our involvement is client/transaction specific and typically involves a combination of transaction based advice, leadership coaching and management mentoring.
We are confident that our approach will help you deliver improved bottom line performance and equip you and your fellow leaders with the understanding, skills and awareness to ensure that optimum performance and results are delivered, even under pressure, unlike the leaders of Barclays and G4S.
