Developing Leadership Presence

Leadership Presence
What makes one person stand out in such a way that others are moved by them? What defines such a leader? What sort of leader sustains others on a daily basis? At the core of the most powerful leaders is presence, or that indefinable yet palpable feeling that others experience around them. It is their interesting difference, the angularity of their approach, a continually positive and constructive sense of the world, or just a totally different slant they put on situations. However you describe it, leaders have it. You know when they walk in the room. When they talk, people listen.

Employee Engagement

Every successful manager knows the modern company must change with the times, adapting to new technologies and strategies in order to remain successful. Boards, committees, or departments can construct detailed plans on how a company will transform to meet these evolving challenges. Money will be spent, man hours will pile up, and countless emails will be written. Great ideas may start from just a few people, but unless your employees are engaged in helping those changes take place, implementing them can be an exhaustive process that may never provide the desired results.

Every professional who wishes to scale the corporate ladder to the highest rung needs to have the ability of understanding, managing and expressing his or her emotions, as well as the emotions of others. You have probably come across people who are good listeners and always seem to have the right words, and they know how to express those words in a way that is not offensive. That is a foundation of emotional intelligence (EI).

The History of Leadership Team Assessment

Leadership Team Assessment History

At least as early as the 1990s, leaders of organizations were being analyzed for strengths and weaknesses not through the traditional lens of profit and loss but with new tools of psychology, including an appreciation for emotional intelligence, a systematic review of “soft skills,” and insights into their awareness of multiple intelligences. This leadership team assessment has grown and developed over the decades to produce ever-more reliable results. Assessments can now be validated to increase reliability and validity, and outcomes can be better predicted.

Humility is powerful. We speak of humility, not humiliation, to be very clear, as humility can keep all the stakeholders in a company focused on the organization’s common goals. Gaining that humility does not deprive anyone of rightful pride in achievement. Getting a lesson in humility can begin with a willingness to hear truth to power—to solicit honest opinions from customers, and team members. The lensing of leadership team assessment invites those opinions and focuses your organization. How do leading companies use this valuable tool?

Enterprise Leadership: Living the Agenda

Enterprise Leadership

One of the key roles of an enterprise leader is to “set the agenda” of the organization.  This term has become widely used to imply meeting management, and a formal listing of what needs to be done.  In this case, we use it in the more traditional form, relating to a personal motivation.  This is a key element of establishing an influence based leadership model.  Here are five key areas to using this effectively. 

Global Leaders

Global Leader

One thing is very clear to anyone who has done this work. The bigger implications of global leadership lie in the cross-cultural nature of the work. We deal with people who have significantly different filters of the world. Due to the inherent nature of perception, the world that they see has many different aspects. Remember that we work with people who speak different languages (meaning there is a different representational system of the world), pray to different gods, and have different economic value systems. These are just some of the big ones.
