Awareness — Skill — Trust
Leadership today is different, intricate and changing. It spans from inspiring people, to make calls that you don't like doing, yet must be done! Leaders play many roles…from strict bosses, coaches, colleague friends, and mentors. They also have to show up when things don't go as planned, and be accountable for other peoples’ mistakes or their own.
What are the key skills leaders require to deal with the present and future? What we’ve discovered from coaching leaders in different fields is awareness, questions, perspectives, perceptions and leading by action is vital. Leaders know being aware, present and in a space of openness and readiness are key competencies.
Leaders face new demands and pressures everyday from boards, shareholders, customer expectations, marketplace competitors, news feeds, blogs, and social media are dominating headlines and media.
Leaders contend with ongoing fast-paced changing business markets leaving them with 3 choices:
1. To keep up with current changes in every area of business!
This is stressful and can cause information overload and anxiety. It’s the same as keeping up with the Kardashians…monitoring every move they do and working out where they are going next without knowing their movements. A smart way to ensure your on top of current events is to have few key trusted information sources and have them deliver it to you!
2. To always be learning about what’s new and having your finger on the pulse!
This feeds the ego and gives a short lived high that’s fleeting. Its filling the gap of lack and it’s a story most leaders buy into. Wanting to know everything makes you look smart…however with a few intelligent questions you can be facilitating something way greater. (It’s a lot easier and smarter way of functioning)
3. To lead and innovate!
This choice is a lot more fulfilling, satisfying and creates high value for all parties involved. It’s looking inside and seeing what can be done better or what can be created! To lead and innovate is to see everything is a possibility for contribution to make peoples’ lives easier.
Most leaders have similar challenges to address:
- Dealing with cultural diversity
- Attracting and keeping top talent
- Speed of new competition
- Being competitive
- Strategic positioning
- Performance and accountability
- Succession planning
- Employee relationships
Are your current leadership competencies adequate enough to lead? Or are you just getting by and not thriving. The skills required are not the skills you learn in everyday situations…as they are situational skills or interactive skills.
What’s required is a new leadership consciousness, perspectives and points of view to business, people, processes, technology, profits and the environment. Successful executives collaborate and engage their people, build their leadership competencies, and grow the business together.
