Great leaders are not just born – they are made
Continual, intentional development of leaders is a strategic business advantage.
The transition from being a great individual contributor to being a leader of others is one of the most important and challenging career stages. Developing into a great leader is a life-long pursuit. However, the transition from manager to leader requires considerable personal transformation, and learning of what it means to be a leader.
The development of critical people skills sits at the core of successful leadership. Leadership is essentially about inspiring people to work with you toward achieving a common goal or vision. Leadership is also about supporting others to develop their skills, use their strengths and bring their ‘best-self’ to work in the pursuit of business objectives.
“The practice of adaptive leadership allows you to help people navigate through a period of disturbance as they sift through what is essential and what is expendable, and as they experiment with solutions to the adaptive challenges at hand.” Ronald Heifetz
