The Art of Great Leadership
The Art Of Great Leadership
The old school of leadership is just that — old school. Gone are the days of Control and Command leaders in the workplace. Very few people in today’s world want to work for an authoritarian, autocratic leader.
And, to a lesser degree, gone too are the days of dominant personality leadership. For one thing, the dynamic, highly personable, friendly leader simply does not scale. And great leadership is something that must scale and replicate if it is to be of long-term benefit to the organization.
Sure, there are exceptions to these changes. But for the most part critical leadership skills have segued into a focus on behaviors over traits, titles and being able to “look the part” of a leader.
As today’s pity saying goes, “you don’t have to have a title to be a leader.” This is often paired with an understanding that leaders are made, not born, and that anyone, at any level with an organization, can be (and is) a leader.
Great leadership is an art comprising the right mindset, a personal leadership philosophy and the use of the right tools and techniques.
Becoming A Great Leader
One of the key challenges facing leaders is knowing when to be a leader, and when to be a manager. Management and leadership each comprise a set of distinct behavioral skills, not style changes or personality traits that can be flipped on and off like a light switch.
Understanding this distinction is crucial for today’s leaders because behaviors, unlike traits, form are the foundation for leadership skills. Skills which can be learned and practiced. Skills that are enhanced with the best leadership tools and techniques.
Our focus at Caliente Leadership is turning good managers and good leaders into great leaders — at all levels of an organization. By revealing to you the best practices of great leaders so that everyone in your organization can become a great leader.
We believe leadership is an art.
It is the art of achieving progress through the involvement and actions of others.
We believe this philosophy of leadership is applicable across all organizations and institutions, including publicly listed companies, non-profit entities, social and community groups, educational institutions, and even government departments and ministries.
Successful leaders apply a wide range of leadership skills, including adaptability, motivation, coaching, focus, collaboration, decision-making, communications, and continuous personal development to both themselves and the people they lead.
The art of great leadership means leveraging the emotions of passion, enthusiasm, self-satisfaction, trust, and loyalty of team members to drive creativity, thinking, innovation, energy, and buy-in to strategies, tactics, and activities in pursuit of clearly stated goals and objectives for the organization.
It will be our distinct pleasure to help you and your organization journey the path to great leadership through our bespoke leadership development programs, leadership coaching and leadership keynote presentations.
