“Creating Wisdom through Sharing”
The great news, is that we all have the ability to learn to become great leaders. Ask yourself, how willing and comfortable am I, to really become aware of the areas of my behaviour, which I’m absolutely willing to improve upon, to develop and strengthen as a leader.
What is Great Leadership?
Great leaders consciously focus on three areas to achieve sustainable, dynamic and successful teams in how they motivate to optimise productivity:
- How they make each team member feel….
- How they communicate…
- How they act…
Here at Binarix, we continue to have the privilege to work with leaders seeking to strengthen and develop key leadership behaviours to inspire, motivate and drive their team to exceptional performance.
From our experience, we’ve identified three specific behaviours which truly define, how great leaders behave and who are constantly seeking new ideas on strengthening these behaviours:
- They are incredibly humble and authentic
- They love and value learning
- They have an absolute belief in the potential of their people
Whilst this is not an exhaustive list of traits, these are clear standouts, and yes these traits can be learnt. The reason why, is because great leaders ‘truly value learning to improve’ which gives them the clarity, confidence and motivation to drive change within their teams to always strive for ‘smarter’ way of doing everything.
Examples of a Great Leader
Continually working with leaders, within the Binarix Leadership Program over 20 years, we’ve found a direct correlation between thriving organisations and leaders who have an absolute commitment to integrating “Strategy, Team and Systems”.
We’ve followed Mr John Chambers, former CEO at Cisco and currently CEO at JC2 Ventures business success for over 10 years and really love his style of leadership as a great example of great leadership, which he broadly defines as:
- ‘Walk the talk’ every moment to create a “care” and “disruptive” culture.
- Foundation of success is the combination of “culture, strategy, communications”.
- Adapt and embrace the speed of change and innovation – “you can’t have speed with a replicable process”.
