What are the core aspects of masterful leadership and how do these aspects work together to produce favorable and enduring transformation?
Change is the central ingredient of growth and in business change requires vision, a driving team as well as a tight context if it is to be produced effectively as well as favorably. This is why effective leadership is so vital in a company.
But while discussing change, it is very important to not throw the baby out with the bathwater simply because, on the flipside to change is the importance of consistency and consistency is likewise important, especially in processes that have to do with products or services, quality, cashflow and perhaps, to some extent, natural growth.
So, this pair of conflicting ideas will need to coexist in a healthy company. Just how do we achieve that? The answer is to recognize that successful companies require both change and consistency, change being the realm of business leaders while consistency being the territory of managers.
Thinking about this pair side by side, it is not very hard to see why consistency along with change (or for that matter business managers and business leaders) are regularly testing to unify.
Stuart Hayes an experienced leader, utilizes the following formula to deliver this transformation which involves an easy but powerful 4 step procedure. In a recent article he goes into detail on the following steps; 1st Step: Ask yourself the tough questions, 2nd Step: Feeling the intention, 3rd Step: Create a simple plan of action & 4th Step: Accomplish positive and sustainable change.
He then sums up by saying, as leader, the code of conduct or ‘context’ you set up around your team and also its behaviour is pivotal to their capability to unify and then accomplish outcomes. Your team will certainly look to you to live up to this code at all times and as you do it will certainly start to take a life and power of its very own.
This is where keeping on track and also achieving positive and lasting change needs your personal commitment, guts and also discipline: being consistent with the message you preach and also connecting with your group in a genuine way when delivering it is important.
Your ability to create and cultivate a powerful context is directly commensurate to your ability to do these things, and with a strong context your group will certainly self manage; self align; move mountains; and create the positive and sustainable changes you want.
My suggestion– Take a deep breath and then be prepared to be human, to admit mistakes and to be open to change yourself. You will certainly be respected and also followed as a leader in a far more compelling way when you have the courage to do these things.
