Effective leadership will take many forms. But at its core, it necessarily includes the ability to:

  • Articulate a strategy
  • Establish guiding principles
  • Make decisions quickly, efficiently and effectively
  • Earn the trust of your people, include them in the process, treat them fairly, keep them informed and above all else communicate effectively
  • Keep the organisation focussed on the positive outcomes

Therefore a definition of Leadership –

“To maximise the expectations, the positive hope of the outcomes that come from change – while minimising the fear of change for those involved.” – Paul Smith
