Leadership Competencies For The Leader in All of Us

By August 18, 2020 No Comments

Leadership: Step Up And Take Action

Never before have we faced challenges like we face today. And never in recent history has the need for powerful and dynamic leadership been more important. It is imperative that we take action – decisive action. Aggressive action. Effective action. We must step forward and be the leaders we are all meant to be. The Rapid Rebuild of the economy, our businesses and our lives will be challenging for many of us. We can’t wait until things “get better” before we take action. We can start now. We can use virtual meetings, conferences, and even virtual keynotes today to begin the rebuilding process. We do not have to fall prey to “Covid fatigue”. We can instead use this time to re-focus and reenergize. To get off to a running start after the pandemic is over, we need to be proactive and creative in our Rapid Rebuild strategy. We can develop powerful leadership skills that will allow us to emerge much stronger, leaner, faster and even more competitive than we were before. We can help you do that.

Topics For Discussion In Virtual Meetings

In the last two newsletters, we discussed the importance of the 23 Leadership Competencies. Any or all of them will be appropriate for virtual meetings, talks or presentations. In the last two newsletters we presented 10 of these concepts (if you missed them, they are available on our website at 3sixtymanagementservices.com). Here we will profile the next 5 competencies, with
more to follow in upcoming newsletters.

For more in-depth information and treatment of these topics you can visit our podcast page.

Focus on Results:
Holds subordinates accountable for successfully managing critical projects
Identifies and reacts to outside forces that may impact or alter the company’s strategy or business outcomes
Reacts quickly and establishes a course of action to drive desired results
Identifies barriers to project success, creates a way forward and implements a measurement process to monitor progress.

Leadership Development:
Insists that relevant learning takes place at every level as a condition of employment
Has a developmental leadership model defined and has successfully implemented a developmental strategy and process
Knows how to motivate and inspire high potential people to commit to a development process;
Acts as a leadership role model, mentor and coach
Empowers employees by giving them the authority to get things accomplished in the most efficient and timely manner

Succession Planning:
Provides candid and helpful performance feedback to direct reports on a regular basis both formally and informally
Ensures that performance feedback is an integral part of every supervisors/managers daily job responsibility
Insists that leaders accept developing subordinates as a major job requirement
Has a history of developing written succession plans and mobilizing company resources to support the plan.

Civic/Social Responsibility:
Demonstrates honesty, transparency and integrity in both business and personal life
Insists on financial and workplace ethical standards and behavior
Takes action to model civic responsibility and support worthwhile social causes
Encourages employees to accept social responsibility for giving back in ways consistent with the organization’s ethical and social values.

Creating A Legacy:
As you grow and develop, take on new challenges or simply move into a new phase of your life, you will be faced with complications and adversity that may set you back. Honesty, perseverance, and trustworthiness will become major factors in overcoming these obstacles and creating your personal brand and your legacy. Along the way, you come to a decision point or stage gate. Your choice is simple but profound in each instance, but a decision must be made.

Your choices are LEAD, FOLLOW, or GET OUT OF THE WAY If you choose to lead you will need to be an honest and trusted leader to establish your vision, mission, and values so that those in your care or supervision will trust you enough to follow. For each of us it may be different. For each person it may be different, for some a great spouse, father, leader, and mentor; to have a legacy, to leave the place a little better than they found it.

Purpose-driven people put their morals, character, and honesty first. Without purpose, we drift. With purpose, we steer. You have a responsibility to yourself and to others to use your best judgment, weigh your options carefully, and make the right decisions—even if they are not the most favorable or popular, even when no one is watching! When you do that you honor yourself and your values. Wherever your path takes you, know that your trustworthiness is your highest honor. For if you are a trusted leader, others will believe in your vision, mission, and values and will trust in you enough to follow you. That will be your legacy.
