Build a leadership toolkit to encompass many styles and create high-impact results. Your Challenge Concern about current and future leaders of the company having the awareness and capabilities required to deliver both business and people imperatives. The lack of leadership skills in non-executive levels are leading to lower employee engagement, employee dissatisfaction, and lack of promotable management. Leadership training has not delivered desirable results. Training has not been linked to talent and business strategy with robust measurement post-training to validate that leader behavior has changed as a result of the training. When mangers use ineffective leadership styles or use the same style in every situation, results are ineffective both from a strategic imperative perspective and cultural climate perspective. This ineffectiveness can interfere with positive team relationships and business deliverables. Our Advice Critical Insight Self-awareness is leadership development. Managers must be able to manage themselves to become a high-impact leader. Unless managers take charge of their own development, they cannot take charge of situations. Unless managers create order in themselves, they cannot contribute to creating order in others on their teams, in their departments, amongst their peers. There is no right or wrong way to lead. There is a right way to lead given the situation. The work world is changing – teams, organizations, and strategic imperatives change. Using only one style of leadership will not net the desired results for the demands of all situations all the time. Effective leaders have many leadership styles in their toolkit to draw from for high-impact results both from a business and people perspective. Impact and Result Managers that train on effectively using leadership styles will gain the skills they need to assess situations to determine the right high-impact leadership style that benefits the team and the organization. Managers that learn how to use multiple leadership styles for high-impact results will positively affect the organizational culture. Effective high-impact leaders engage employees so they feel passionately about their work and deliver on organizational objectives.
