Leadership Development

Organizations need effective leadership:  Whatever their purpose or size, and whether they’re hierarchical in nature, or follow more egalitarian, innovative and open principles, all organizations nevertheless share one essential quality: they rely on the quality of their leadership, at every level.  That’s because, more or less by definition, the thing that defines any organization is the set of collective goals that it’s organized towards, and effective leadership is the key component in achieving these goals most effectively and efficiently.

Leadership is Crucial to Achieve and Maintain Competitive Advantage

The nature of organizational undertakings varies immensely, as do organizational styles and cultures.   But one thing is universal: the importance of a competitive advantage in a marketplace.  To achieve and maintain a competitive advantage today requires ever-greater demands on organizations, requiring them to be flexible, proactive and creative, each of which is enabled by leadership at every level.  Maximizing the leadership potential within an organization is a crucial element in achieving competitive advantage, and is where having a leadership development strategy and process becomes important.

But the key to understanding this paradox, and the challenge that modern leadership development represents, is contained in this truism of the leadership development industry: in an effective modern organization, effective leadership should be understood as being as much a result of effective organization as the source of effective organization.

In other words, the most effective organizations don’t just follow leaders.  They don’t even follow better leaders: they produce leaders, even as they also knowingly define the qualities required of leadership – in this organization, in this context, to these ends.  There is no stable human nature on which to base a static notion of how leaders should be trained; the needs, in terms of leadership and the culture that enables it, are defined organically by the demands faced by any particular organization.  And these are defined in turn by how it functions within the complex realities of 21st century market competition – and the claims the organization aims to stake and defend within it.

Leadership Development is the activities and creation of an environment that increase the abilities and effectiveness and self-awareness required to create a vision, motivate, inspire, accomplish, and
