ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK
Being able to lead effectively is one of the most important skills you need to develop to succeed in Supervision, Management, or Leadership in just about any organization. But, if you’ve ever had a leadership position, you know how difficult this can be.
Leadership that Succeeds versus Leadership that Fails
To lead effectively, it’s important to understand what make leadership efforts succeed and why they fail. That way you can focus your attention on doing the things necessary to make them succeed, and keep from overlooking some of the common reasons for failure.
Leadership efforts that succeed usually contain 8 key elements. These are:
- Being proactive and willing to act.
- Setting and communicating a clear vision and direction.
- Establishing and maintaining credibility with the people you’re trying to lead.
- Getting commitment.
- Setting the example.
- Empowering others to do what needs to be done.
- Confronting and overcoming barriers and obstacles.
- Managing accomplishment of day-to-day efforts.
On the other hand, leadership efforts that fail, usually don’t meet all of these criteria. They are often lacking, and seriously so in one of the key areas.
TEST THIS FOR YOURSELF
To test this out, think of a couple of examples from your own experience. First, look at an example of a successful effort. Then go through each of the criteria above and jot down some of the ways the person leading the effort met these criteria.
Next, think of an effort that failed. Then go through the criteria and list what was missing, or areas that were not done well. What was the impact of these missing or poorly done elements?
So, How Do I Make Sure I Take the Actions Needed to Lead Effectively?
To help leaders focus their activities on the actions needed to provide effective leadership, KAW Consulting developed the “LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK”, an electronic tool and e-book based on the 8 key elements mentioned above that you can use on a day-to-day basis to enhance your ability to lead effectively. Included is an easy to use Application Guide to help you determine how to focus your efforts in each of the Framework’s areas.
You can use this tool in all kinds of situations that require the use of basic leadership skills — from situations that you may face as a Supervisor, Manager or Project Leader, to complex high-level leadership activities, such as providing Executive Leadership for an organization. It’s suitable for use in all types of organizations whether they are companies, non-profits, governmental organizations, or volunteer groups.
