Leadership Style and Skills

Conventionally, practice has associated leaders and leadership with top management positions.  Typical leadership roles in this sense are the head of the business, the head of the organisation or the head of the function. It is a changed world today. The realities of today’s corporate world demand a leadership role to be exercised at multiple levels within the organisation – as leaders of teams, leaders of functions, leaders of work processes and leaders of business units. In a globalised economy characterized by market deregulation, pace, interconnectedness and customer empowerment, all adding up to a continued volatility, businesses have to be in a ready mode to respond to the external environment.

While the entrepreneurs or top management may create a vision, articulated as the ‘strategic growth path’, the vision is to be actualized through people staffing the organization at different levels, irrespective of its nature of business, size and life cycle. Effective leadership is then not just about providing a vision, but also about leading the self and the team to align themselves with the organization goals.

Effective leaders create a momentum through their vision and a bias for action. While vision brings in a sense of direction and focus, the bias for action enables the movement and channelizing of resources.

This programme focusing on leadership as a multi-level construct, aims to create an opportunity for participants to reflect on their leadership roles and leadership skills for effective performance.
