Leadership is one of the key drivers of change. Leadership is fundamental for growing the culture of the organization. We distinguish four areas of leadership development. Leading Yourself, Leading Others, Leading an Organisation, Leading in Society.
Leading yourself is a starting point for sustainable leadership. Its focus is on who you are and not what you do. It is about possessing an intimate understanding of your values, purpose, needs, character and capabilities. Only then can you focus on personal mastery and align the ego’s needs (deficiency needs), your soul’s desires (growth needs), and your body’s needs (physiological needs).
Leading others is about bringing energy to individuals, a team, or a group of people. It’s about the finding the balance in caring and daring for people. Caring by giving time, attention, and compassion when people struggle, but also daring to keep them growing and to stay fit for the future. When leading a team, it’s about having the capability to accelerate teaming in this ever-changing world. You not only need to give your team a sense of purpose, you need to enable its members, individually and collectively, to achieve high levels of sustainable performance. It’s about developing the team at a rapid pace, teaching them to be flexible, and mastering the ability to facilitate major changes when needed.
Leading an organisation is complex. It’s about surrounding yourself with the best people you can find and building trust together. It’s about building a culture that meets the demands of both people and the organization. It’s about leading change and reinventing the organization by demonstrating proactive strategies and meeting all your stakeholders’ needs. All your stakeholders need to know that you have their best interests at heart. Leading an organization means having the ability the change and pivot fast and accelerate those results that matter most.
Leading a society is about starting a movement and attracting followers. You need encourage to challenge assumptions and ideas. As a public figure, you must have a high level of self-leadership where integrity and authenticity is key. Capabilities in leading others are key in order to inspire and create followers, connect with others, and get your message out. Partnership-building skills are needed to build strategic alliances. Your level of consciousness directs the mind’s eye to the worldview you stand for.
Leading in society means believing that organizations are accountable to the communities in which they are based and the societies in which they operate. And it means wanting to do good for humanity and the planet. It means thinking in a win-win mindset and focusing on the interests of the whole, with no boundaries.
