Sometimes clients can simply benefit from an external perspective with executive coaching professional regarding the leadership development challenges they’re facing in their organization. Typically strategic success is, in large measure, a function of having strong leadership.
The demand for immediate results to do more with less and the importance of addressing people issues has never been greater. As organizations continue to stay lean and competitive, and as the numbers of people in place to do the work and deliver results shrink, how people connect, collaborate, and commit within their network—ultimately, how work gets done—become critical.
The reality of ongoing change has made the management task much larger, creating a widening gap between the manager of results and those on the line. This shift is taking place within a traditional model, which is less concerned with communication flow and more concerned with the movement of power. It follows that the perceptions, structures, and practices that constitute and emanate from this traditional model may become over time less and less connected to the actual marketplace.
This management model also runs the risk of compromising the environment of trust that is essential to maximizing a firm's social capital and its output. In the face of the current adversity the smart companies will invest in their most important resource.
As leadership assumes a followership and centers on outcomes – what leaders bring about, as a collective process, in how one sets direction, achieves alignment, and gains commitment – it increasingly differentiates the leader from the manager. Given the current fiscal climate, the stakes are greater than ever and will likely be for the extended near term.
