“Leaders create a vision and action a strategy with a meaning and a purpose.”
Leadership is like charisma: rather than learned, it is attributed, i.e., people characterize somebody as being a leader. Why is that? Metaphorically speaking, leaders embrace two sides of a coin. Rather than being fixed to a specific personality style, leaders tune in with empathy into a given situation and model different behaviors and attitudes to suit particular requirements that are needed with authenticity. They are in full control of their emotional state, entirely aware in the moment right now, and continuously perceive and process emotional as well as logical information from their environment. That way, leaders empower and raise productivity levels in organizations and teams.
Leaders can build rapport in no time. Leaders listen actively and talk convincingly. Leaders entertain and advise. They combine analytical complexity with emotional intelligence. Leaders frame a vision and drive necessary change, and communicate with focus, clarity, ease, and comfort. Being a leader is an attitude rather than a skill or capability. Leadership Development is about fine-tuning and sharpening these gifts individually. Imagine how inspiring and motivating it would be to work together with that kind of person.
