It is important for leaders to understand the ways in which they inspire their people and support other leaders to lead. They need to be capable of building high-performing leadership teams. At this level, they also play a crucial role in leading across their multiple stakeholders and leading their part of the business ecosystem with a global perspective.
Networked and collaborative leadership replaces heroic leadership models and requires leaders to be developers of others. It’s useful for leaders to be aware of the different stages of vertical development so they can understand their own needs as a leader and the needs of others.
We typically help leaders map their own ecosystem and the key roles and relationships they need to address. Through 360 feedback and individual personal development consultations at the start of a development process, they can identify the shifts they need to make in line with the business’ needs, their team’s needs and the needs of their peers. We have designed core leadership programs at this director level for global organizations operating in every region of the world, which are built on the company values and recognize its strategic changes. These programs address:
- Leading self – understanding my authentic self, choosing to respond and not react, creating resilience
- Leading my leadership team – addressing live team issues, building trust, and handling conflict
- Leading across boundaries within the system – influencing across boundaries, developing authority presence and impact
Intensive coaching circles led by our program coaches support this development process and often continue as virtual coaching circles, which embed the learning into the leader’s role.
