Overview

Have you ever heard the saying that “too many cooks spoil the broth”? Having one set of instructions, even if they are flawed, is preferable to having two sets of perfect directions that, when enacted together without reference to each other, cause havoc.

This is the principle of leadership in a nutshell. It is all about a leader maintaining focus and creating positive outcomes.

Leadership involves understanding how to inspire, influence and control how people behave. It is not a simple matter of shouting, or having a deep and booming voice; or being great in physical stature. The skills of leadership require much more than that!

Sometimes, leadership may be no more than having a poignant message for a receptive audience at an opportune moment, and a good leader will be able to accomplish that.

In the world of business management, leadership has changed from its early days when it largely mirrored the military model of leadership from the top down, with powerful individuals dominating large groups of less powerful people. Nowadays, leadership in business is far more knowledge-driven.

Leadership skill has been variously described as:

"The process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task”

"An ability for creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen”

“The ability to successfully integrate and maximize available resources within the internal and external environment for the attainment of organizational or societal goals”

“The capacity of leaders to listen and observe, to use their expertise as a starting point to encourage dialogue between all levels of decision-making”.

If these are leadership qualities you desire, we can help!
