To lead is to get others to move in a certain direction. A leader is someone who has the ability to mobilize and motivate others to follow, not because they have to, but because they want to. Hence, leadership is not about formal authority, but about the art of influencing – stimulating, convincing, seducing, inspiring, swaying, encouraging.
Leadership is a license that is earned, not a position that is assigned. To follow is an act of trust which is generally not taken lightly.
Leaders are not born, they grow. Managers who set out to improve their leadership skills can learn, but the path requires hard work and willingness to be self-critical and practice on the job.
We can support firms and individuals in their leadership development efforts by offering leadership style analyses, competence assessments, training programs, workshops, coaching, 360 degree feedback ,tools and methodologies.
