Why Values?

In my coaching practice I have found that one of the three top things that come to the surface is personal values, finding out who you are at the core, what your beliefs are. I am constantly amazed (although by now I shouldn’t be) how many people have never done any work on their personal core values. This is even more important for leaders as they grow into their roles and have discovered that they want to become better at what they do. The values exercise I take them through leads them on a journey of discovery to what challenges them, excites them, motivates them and encourages them. This journey of self-awareness takes them to a place where they can determine “what wolf to feed”.

Do We Need Followers To Be A Leader?

Do we need followers to be a leader? How do we position ourselves as a leader in any given context?

Over the past couple of weeks I have been confronted again with the question about what leadership looks like in the context of there being no organization to lead. Can you be a leader without followers? It seems obvious that to be a leader you must have followers, does it not? But what if being a leader is also defined by developing a following? That would suppose that you actually start off without followers, doesn’t it?

Leadership & Learning

 

The two models I discuss in this video is where a manager becomes a leader. It is where the manager first recognizes their own gaps in knowledge or ability, and while working on improving their own competencies, finds members of their team who can fill them — that by demonstrating their own process of continuous learning, they become an example for the others to follow.
