Great leaders focus more on developing the intangibles of leadership than on the tangible attributes found in most lists of competencies or in most leadership books.
The agenda for the session was as follows:
- Discovering the Intangibles
- The 7 intangibles of great leadership
- A science and methodology for developing great leaders
It is important to understand that star leaders own their learning and use reflection to gain power. In using reflection, they have a variation of the exploding field of mindfulness and become highly structured and purposeful. This means they have a formal allocation of time to reflect, can focus reflection on learning and can share the results of their reflection. Reflection is the foundation for all other aspects of great leadership.
Companies need to identify their star performers. In doing so, they must discover their wisdom. Wisdom is more than knowledge and information. It also includes purpose and operational excellence.
Other Intangibles are:
- Passionately commit to a purpose
- Build consensus around the purpose
- Thoroughly prepare to execute
- Inspire a transformative culture
- Lead from a slow state
