Effective Leadership

Managing and enhancing the performance of your organisation’s current business model relies heavily on convergent thinking, sharp analysis and rational decision making. Evolving your organisation so that it remains relevant and effective in the future represents a qualitatively different contribution. It refers to the opportunity that you have to be a pathfinder in the sense of visualising or imagining what your organisation could or should be in the future, and being a catalyst to mobilise others to join you in this quest. This challenge often requires associative or divergent thinking, imagination and intuition. It’s not enough to be able to do both yourself, or to bring together a team who can make these contributions. It’s also necessary to determine the relative importance of these two qualitatively different contributions at this point in time. For it is critical that your organisation is neither over nor under led nor managed; achieving the correct balance determines sustained success.
