Everyone involved in leadership programmes eventually asks themselves the question
"Can I take someone who is not a natural leader and put them through a leadership programme that will turn them into one?"
We think not.
Our approach is to run courses where natural leaders will develop the skill and insight to become great leaders.
There is one essential quality for anyone in any position of leadership: from running a company to running a church fete to running your home.
That quality is the ability to see what is going on.
Yes, there are other leadership qualities that are valuable:
- Good communication
- Being articulate
- The ability to think on your feet
- Compelling presence
But if you cannot see what is going on, all those other leadership qualities are for nought.
Seeing is clarity.
Seeing is having a clear understanding of what has made you the way you are; what has shaped and influenced your life.
The clearer you are about what motivates and affects your behaviour as a leader, the clearer you will be able to see what is going on with other people.
In turn, once you are able to see what is going on for others, then all the other essential leadership skills can come to the fore.
Outstanding leadership requires much more than people being good at their job.
Leadership requires innovative thinking.
Leadership requires people making positive and inspiring impacts.
And leadership requires them to be able to motivate others.
What is needed is an ability to think and act 'out of the box'; out of the accepted or 'right' ways of doing things.
More than anything else we find that good leaders inspire respect in those who follow them.
That respect comes from good experiences of the leader in question.
Experiences where the leader helps individuals see their part in the bigger plan.
Great leaders don't, nor should they, fit a mould.
