Technology and process excellence will only get you so far. In the end, it is the people who make an organization successful. Leadership is far different from management, and just as important. Leadership is not about position in an organization chart or title on a business card. Many people occupy the position of leadership without demonstrating the qualities of leadership. An effective business leader must possess both subject matter knowledge and strong interpersonal and communication skills.
Leaders must adapt their leadership style to the readiness of the follower. Leaders must hold the space for their followers to implement and adhere to common sense practices when time pressure and inexperience may tempt them to choose less effective means, or otherwise gives participants a glimpse into what’s required to be a positive force of leadership regardless of their position or title, and increase success in their professional lives. By following the simple, effective, proven guidelines in the Leadership Challenge, by Posner and Kouzes, participants will be able to put into action leadership that others admire and willingly follow as well as the ability to enable others to achieve their greatest potential, results that may seem highly unlikely or even impossible to those unskilled at unleashing the potential of others.
