Leadership is open to all.
We all have the potential to be great leaders, so how do we harness and develop these skills. As the experts, we know what makes great leadership.
Let's break down the theories.
"The notion that leadership is a mystical trick practised by the select few is one of the biggest management myths of all time – don’t fall for it". Stefan Stern.
There is no leadership gene, authentic 21st Century leadership is too contextual, too relational and too complex for it to be explained by a collection of personality traits. We recognise that leadership capability can be acquired, developed and is always a work in progress.
"Gifted leadership occurs when heart and head--feeling and thought--meet. These are the two winds that allow a leader to soar". Daniel Goleman
"Option A is not available. So let's just kick the shit out of Option B." Sheryl Sandberg
"The leadership style you choose to use (and yes, to a great extent, it is an active choice you can make) has a direct impact on the result you achieve. It is what makes you memorable to others and fulfilled within yourself." Rebecca Hourston (2013)
"If I only had one strength that I could choose, I would choose resilience. Resilience is the shock absorber for tough times, and there surely will be tough times occasionally." Jill Griffin
Successful leadership is about helping yourself and others to develop resilience by learning from setbacks, understanding what you can and can’t control, and committing to doing better next time. Being mentally tough is not about being ‘macho’ but having the ability to cope with the inevitable ups and downs of leading and managing people.
“People with high levels of personal mastery...cannot afford to choose between reason and intuition, or head and heart, any more than they would choose to walk on one leg or see with one eye.” Peter Senge
