The 3 Journeys of a Leader
Our transformational approach to executive leadership development is based on a simple idea; leaders should be capable of leading themselves before they can lead others. Having mastered the art of leading themselves, candidates for leadership then have the credibility to lead others. These are the 3 journeys of a leader.
Only once leaders have mastered themselves and demonstrated people leadership, should they be considered for the important role of leading an organization. This assumes these leaders possess the requisite capabilities for the complexity of the work level.
In order to achieve these outcomes, we believe there are three important journeys for a leader to experience for personal and organisational transformation.
1. Leading Oneself
The first journey relates to the inner journey of “being” a leader. Here the focus is on self-awareness through self-reflection and discovery to ensure the leader is aware of personal values, purpose, strengths and style. Self-awareness is the door to building effective communication skills and positive relationships. All of which are necessary pre-requisites for becoming a leader of others.
2. Leading Others
The second journey relates to the “doing” of leadership. This part of the journey is where the leader applies their intellect, skills and capabilities and demonstrates their emotional maturity and resilience in the leadership of others within the specific organisational context.
3. Leading an Organisation
The third journey relates to strategic leadership at c-suite or general manager level. At this level of work values, governance, business models, strategy, organisational design, accountability, risk, talent systems are central to value creation. Our unique approach to identifying value creation requirements enables leaders to create an architecture for their firm and a roadmap for the execution of strategy.
