transforming the way leadership is learned

 

WHAT IS LEADERSHIP?

Leadership is the ability of an individual to influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute towards the effectiveness and success of the organisation.

House et al., 1999

 

WHAT THIS MEANS

  • Leadership is about what you do, not what you know

  • Leadership is interpersonal; it’s about your interactions with others

  • The three primary leadership behaviours are influencing, motivating, and enabling

  • Leadership increases effectiveness, it drives success, producing visible impact in the larger system or organisation

  • Leadership is an ability; it can be developed

 

To be clear, your leadership effectiveness is much more a product of the quality of your relationships with others than it is your position in the organisation.

 

BEHAVIOURS MATTER

Our guiding principle is that behaviours matter.

 

Leadership is about what you do, not what you know.  Ultimately, your leadership effectiveness is assessed by the behaviours you consistently manifest across time rather than the concepts in your head.

 

LEARNING LEADERSHIP

This has significant implications for the way leadership is learned. Because leadership is behavioural, learning leadership happens in three separate domains: knowing, doing and being. 

 

An individual’s effectiveness in any interpersonal interaction is a combination of their cognitive understanding of best practice, the specific behaviours they engage in during the interaction, and their way of being in the interaction.

 

But there’s a clear hierarchy. Who you are being in any interaction matters more to your effectiveness than what you do. What you do matters much more than what you know.

 

For this reason, leadership cannot be learned from a lecture or a PowerPoint presentation. It has to be learned through practice and feedback, being in the arena, repeatedly interacting with others.

 

WHAT WE DO

We create safe, motivating environments where specific leadership skills are practiced and coached, practiced and coached, practiced and coached, building participants’ effectiveness at influencing, motivating and enabling others, transforming their leadership effectiveness.
