Executives and leaders must be able to:
- Think – build the strategy
- Lead – offer a compelling vision that others can execute
- Act – model a presence that others want to follow and create an engaged corporate culture that supports strategic goals
Authentic behaviors build respect with stakeholders. Leaders must be consistent in actions based on core beliefs and values. When building leadership skills and brand, it is important to begin with a thorough self-assessment of the drivers of our own intrinsic motivators.
A Unique leadership style attracts talented professionals. For leadership success, it is important that expertise, perspectives, history and knowledge are embodied in a personal brand – this combination of attributes makes each of us a one-of-a-kind leader.
Reality checks are needed to receive honest feedback and maximize your strengths. How each leader desires to be seen – vs. how the leader is actually seen – creates a distortion of one’s brand and limits effectiveness. It is important to close this “perceived vs. actual” gap to become a leader that others trust and wish to follow.
Be seen as an Authority within your chosen field. Our greatest authority comes when leaders, present themselves with authenticity and high integrity. For this to occur, all communication must embrace values and decision-making must be grounded in facts – addressing both the emotional and logical basis for the decision.
