What is great leadership?
“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” – Sheryl Sandberg
Managing oneself and the stress inherent in a senior role is the first – and often most challenging – dimension of modern leadership. The pressures on executives to perform exceptionally, while growing into an ever-changing role as leader, are intense. Effective leadership demands personal resilience, high levels of emotional intelligence, and the ability to lead others through constant change with skills, compassion and grace.
High performers don’t need a coach all the time. But they do benefit from leadership coaching to keep them performing at the top level consistently, particularly when faced with change. Everything from new market forces and competition to new factors in home, health or ambitions has the potential to undermine performance and, as a result, affect the bottom line.
Great leaders need great teams
Leadership is not just about giving energy … it’s unleashing other people’s energy.” – Paul Polman
