In the past, effective leadership has focused on finding and developing people with a defined list of desirable traits including charisma, decisiveness and strategic mindedness. However, this approach to leadership is dated. There is little evidence to support the claim that leaders have the same set of characteristics. There has also been a focus on developing well-rounded leaders, although the search for ‘unicorn leaders’ who can do everything equally well has been just as misguided.
In today’s hyper-competitive, complex and fast-changing environment, leaders can’t be superheroes or all-rounders. Rather, they need to optimize their unique strengths and be workplace energizers, unlocking the energy, opinions and ideas of others to deliver excellent results and value to customers/stakeholders.
Great leaders know how to identify and unlock the natural strengths of their people.
The purpose of this e-book book is to outline practical ways for leaders to optimize their own strengths and those of their people to free up the energy, ideas and excellence of the workforce. This will be a force multiplier to accelerate strategy execution, competitive advantage and innovation of the organization.
