Peter Drucker famously stated that “management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” Great leaders possess dazzling social intelligence, a zest for change, and above all, vision that allows them to set their sights on the “things” that truly merit attention.
How do those in leadership positions in your organization answer these questions?
- If asked by an employee, what could you do to improve as a leader, what would it be?
- How do you foster a work/life balance environment within your team?
- What keeps you busy outside of work?
Working with Panoptes Solutions leaders in your organization will understand who they are and what gives each individual their unique life value. Whether undertaken individually or as a group, three significant skills and abilities are always addressed:
- Attitude Development:
In order to create an environment of positive attitudes and possibility thinking, it is important for a leader to understand where and how attitudes are formed and how those attitudes can be developed. While attitudes can have a powerful effect on behavior, they are not set in stone. The same influences that lead to attitude formation can also create attitude change.
- Interpersonal Skills:
We use interpersonal skills every day to communicate and interact with others. Much of what a leader is involved in, and therefore accomplishes, involves other people. Upholding positive interpersonal communication skills and business relationships among colleagues, subordinates and superiors is a significant key to maintaining a successful work environment.
- Goal Setting:
Despite research indicating performance improves 20-25 per cent on goal-setting, a large percentage of leaders do not engage in formal goal setting for themselves and their teams? We all know that all the great adventure stories have a larger-than-life goal. Leadership, among other things, is the process of providing organizational direction and inspiration and accomplishing necessary objectives. Through the goal accomplishment model Panoptes Solutions provides the tools and processes necessary to achieve more goals, more often, to maximize results and outcomes.
