Why is growing leadership capability so important?
Leadership isn’t just about the inspirational and visionary CEO. Leadership is about people.
To the person on the front line, their manager is the leader, exemplifying what the company is all about. We therefore believe that to have any chance at all of getting the people stuff right, organisations must create leaders at all levels. And if you don’t have the resource to do this for everyone, start with those who directly influence the most people – which, for many may well be the middle management layer.
Leadership often has a cascade effect – great leadership breeds great leadership. Business owners and senior people companies need to make sure they are exemplifying the company culture and displaying role-model behaviours as well as leadership qualities to ensure their managers – and their managers of the future – understand and exert what the company needs.
