I like like-minded people, particularly those that confirm the views I have on the current call for a change in leadership methods.
Only last week Kate and I attended the IoD conference where not one, not two, but three separate key note speakers presented their views that the traditional way of managing a business is reaching somewhat of an impasse.
(and I’m pretty certain that the speakers hadn’t co-ordinated their scripts the day before!)
The future we’re facing is rife with opportunities to revolutionise leadership techniques and offer more not only to our clients and customers, but also to colleagues whose talents deserve exploring.
The new emerging leader is dynamic with a personalised management method that maximises the productivity of their staff. Giving back to your team by developing and nurturing them into fruition is a concept that has seen success, not only within Insight with Passion, but across many industries and companies.
The key message? Stop micromanaging the daily processes of your company, take a step back, look at the bigger picture and understand whose talents lie where and apply them. I can guarantee you’ll find your team will become a well-oiled machine fast.
Knowing you’re up to date with all things ‘business’ is a great feeling – a fortnight before the IoD conference, Kate and myself were in discussions with a couple of our clients about arranging a ‘Team Workshop’ to help them to develop that exact leadership style.
The future looks bright for those implementing this new concept and running with it, I just hope that leadership teams don’t let themselves get left behind in ‘micro-management’ that will simply stagnate, when they could be inspiring those around them.
