the Complete Leader®"
a nutshell ....
Seeing the right tomorrow is vital - but not enough. You need to mobilise
and sustain the support, commitment and capability of your people to
create that new tomorrow.
"Towards the Complete leader®" is a personal and business development
tool. It provides a clear framework for understanding and dealing with
the many complex issues facing businesses today. It enables the thinking
and actions that help to provide clear direction, encourage an inspiring
culture and focus attention on outcomes that matter.
Today this unique and highly respected approach forms the cornerstone
of leadership development in a range of organisations in both public
and private sectors.
Who is the "Complete Leader"?
In essence the "Complete Leader" is one who works hard to create a shared,
compulsive sense of purpose; one who fosters a constructive culture
or a way of doing things that is understood on a wide front; and one
who ensures that key outcomes and measures exist to guide towards both
the achievement of the company's aims and the way in which people work
together to succeed.
The difference between the "best" organisations and
the "rest" is their continuing ability to tap the talents of a critical
mass of their people- whilst staying focused on the changing needs of
the organisation and it's customers.
Complete Leaders create Great Places - to buy from,
work in and invest in. They see, or sense, the whole as well as the
parts - they know how things fit together to create the success the organisation,
and its people, seek.
Fundamental to "Towards The Complete Leader" and a key
element of our work is a balanced approach to leadership that
focuses on strengths, and which meets the needs of the business, it's
customers, it's people - all its stakeholders.
What is "Towards the Complete Leader" ?
"Towards The Complete Leader" highlights
the practices of exemplary leadership whilst integrating all of the
components of the Complete Leader into a single framework. It
extends our understanding of leadership in terms of:
The "direction" in which organisations need to travel
The "processes" used by leaders to get people to "come
The 3 fundamentals of the complete leader:
Vision: a compulsive shared sense of purpose -
the "what" we are about around here.
Culture: our values and beliefs - the
"way" we do things around here.
Measures: tracking progress on both of the above-
how "well" are we doing so far ?
The 3 "enablers" that will bring these fundamentals
- inspiring commitment
- establishing support systems
- delivering results
By adopting these and other principles of "Towards
the Complete leader" you can make a difference.
History provides us with evocative models
of gallant leadership. But whilst the heroes of so many generations
are seen by some as the embodiment of leadership and personal courage,
it's so often the "ordinary" individual succeeding against overwhelming
odds that remains the most emotive figure of admiration.
The search for the magic ingredients that enable these
individuals to excel has taken many paths. Pure academics have examined
the traits of the successful, the timing or situational appropriateness
of specific individuals as well as generic "behavioural competencies"
of leadership achievement. We've identified the "visionaries", the "inspirers",
the "controllers" and now perhaps the "genetically predisposed"! To
some, leadership, like the Holy Grail, remains that elusive chalice
whose enticement is it's very inability to be objectively defined. We
are often blinded by the mythology surrounding a few outstanding leaders
who seem to represent something beyond our understanding.
Our founding partner- The
Centre For Leadership Studies - Europe, has built on earlier
findings over the last 20 years, specifically focussing on what the
best seem to do to stay that way. The findings of this ongoing research
continue to show that everyone has potential to lead - and the fundamentals
are both explainable and trainable - and at every level.
The truth is - we CAN become the leaders we aspire
