In this short article in YFS, Stuart Hayes looks at the key elements of first-rate leadership including how these components combine to create positive and lasting change.
STEP 1-- ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS
STEP 2-- FEEL THE REASON
STEP 3-- DEVELOP A STRAIGHTFORWARD PLAN OF ACTION
STEP 4-- ACHIEVE POSITIVE & SUSTAINABLE CHANGE
After fleshing out these key elements, he summarises by saying, "As leader, the code of conduct or 'context' you develop around your team and also its behavior is pivotal to their ability to stick together and then attain results. Your group will look to you to uphold this code at all times and when you do it will start to take a life and power all of its own."
This is where staying on track and also accomplishing positive and enduring change requires your individual commitment, guts as well as discipline: following the message you teach and then connecting with your group in an authentic fashion when delivering it is very important.
