There is only one measurement when it comes to the success of a leader and that is how well they generate a high performance in others.
Successful leaders have the ability to flex their focus, behaviour and style to best suit the circumstances and those they lead to perform at their best. Great leaders create a culture within which individuals, teams and organisations can flourish.
Many of us find ourselves in a management or leadership position as a result of having a particular skill and on the back of that gain promotion. The original skill in most cases that our career has been established upon bears no relationship whatsoever to the requirements to manage and lead.
Ask yourself, how many great leaders have you worked with? 80% of delegates tell us that they have never worked with anyone they consider to be an outstanding leader. A mere 20% claim to have experienced working with a leader who has inspired, managed and supported them to achieve more than they anticipated.
