When you hear the word Leader, who do you think of? I immediately think of the best and worst leader that I’ve worked with. Which pleads a follow-on question of why wasn’t all of my leaders like the good leader? Poor leadership and toxic work environments has destroyed many organizations from within. IR&S expertise builds on over 30 years of leadership experience. We’ve learned through many years of experience leading organizations big and small: 1. that good leaders surround themselves with good people. 2) Good leaders motivate people who work around them as this sets the tone for all other aspects of an organization.
Developing your organizational leadership skills should be a continuous process. No leader is able to say that he or she knows everything about being in a leadership position. So no matter how long you have been at the helm there is always something to learn and re-learn.
Even seasoned leaders have their flaws. A leader sitting in their position for a long time might be stuck in a rut when it comes to business. Technology is changing how the entire world operates. Businesses are no longer run by word-of-mouth and leaders must adapt to these changes or get left behind. Adapting to the changing business climate can be a struggle if you have been in a leadership position for a considerable amount of time. For this reason it is always important for a leader to step outside their role and take a look at how their job performance is. Many leaders fail to remember that leadership is a continued study no matter how long it has been since you gained the title. Learning to develop new skills, manage a new type of workforce, and deal with a changing economic climate can give any leader a run for their money.
