Leadership and management development

“My job is to make the whole executive team good enough to be successors, so that’s what I do.”Steve Jobs

Leading during times of complexity, ambiguity and sustained ‘crisis’ can prove to be treacherous. People put you under enormous pressure to respond to their anxieties with authoritative certainty. The only certainty is that the path ahead will have many twists and turns.

Management and leadership theory give us some useful markers in the sand about how to manage ourselves and the system within which we work.

Increasingly we know that leaders and managers need to:

  • Be adaptive using different styles and approaches are needed in different circumstances
  • Separate the technical problems from the adaptive problems
  • Collaborate to create the conditions for successful change
  • Understand the political environment and the politics of change
  • Have heightened self awareness
  • Play to their signature strengths
  • Look out, look up and look beyond
