Leadership implies followership. When you look around who is following you?
We define leadership as the art of inspiring committed and aligned action toward a clear goal or vision. This doesn’t mean the leader is always in front. When leadership works, the leader can step back and allow others to creatively work towards the vision of their own free will. Many are depending on you. Are you connected to them? How strong is that connection?
Some leaders are blessed with clear vision and communication. They know how to connect and inspire others to that picture. Building alignment is both an art and a science we can help you improve. Other leaders practice the art of supporting a group of players in converging divergent thinking into creative and clear solutions that the group collectively embraces. When this is done well the answer is always in the room. Regardless of your style, your ability to connect with stakeholders to understand their motivations, reservations and desires is a crucial leadership skill. We offer many practical tools to help you strategically connect to your team, clients, and management structure.
As a leader you are only as strong as the relationships you forge. Do you have powerful mentors and advocates? Do those nearby feel they can count on you to help connect them to their true potential? Our process will help you to tune in to those counting on you. You will build stronger alliances and improve your ability to influence others. Leaders are connected to their community as citizens that play a key role in making that community what they wish it would be. Community surrounds you, at work, at home, online and in your neighborhood. You have a role to play in those communities fully flourishing. If the word community sounds a little foreign to you, chances are you are a little unplugged. Get connected.
