Many of us launched our careers in the “Boom” years. Talent was in short supply and advancing was a given for motivated individuals. And then things changed. Instead of worrying about keeping their top performers happy, companies focused on survival. Now, there is hiring freezes, and thousands of over-qualified resumes swamp HR departments for any open position.
In this tough economic environment outcomes matter. Today’s companies focus on the bottom line and expect their executives to bring their best to the table. Add to this that business is facing changes it has never experienced before. Navigating these turbulent waters is about leadership.
If you want to succeed, if you want to get ahead – you need to lead the change created by an ever-changing economic environment – outsourcing, technological developments and the globalization of the marketplace are just a few of the many contributors. You can adapt to those changes or you will be left behind.
Leadership is about coping with change. Part of the reason it has become so important in recent years is that the competitive landscape has become more aggressive and more volatile. If you want to succeed, if you want to get ahead – you need to lead the change to meet these new needs.
- Change Leadership – It’s about vision. It’s about empowering people. Leaders recognize the opportunities in the marketplace and led by engaging their people to cultivate a culture of learning, adapting, and leading within their organizations.
- Emotional Intelligence – As an executive, it is not enough to be smart or simply good at what you do. As an executive, you need to use and manage your emotions to effectively get the best from your people.
- Personal Effectiveness – is about establishing goals, identifying values and establishing priorities.
