High Performance Leadership

Leadership is not an attitude: it is a rigorous discipline that has to be learned and applied from the ground up. The discipline of leadership has become more difficult to master in an age of perpetual change, shrinking resources and complex geopolitics.

To thrive, leaders must develop four proactive skills. They must be able to:

•    Mobilize coalitions with diverse agendas, needs and wants.
•    Sustain momentum in order to execute strategy, even as the environment shifts.
•    Develop and lead people through coaching relationships.
•    Negotiate across and beyond organizational boundaries in a flat, networked environment.

Leaders who master these skills will be able to execute initiatives and drive an organization with agility, see fewer initiatives stuck in functional silos, and better understand the value of developing the talent of others, all while creating a culture of engagement.
