The main prerequisite for leadership is for the aspiring individual to be motivated to be a leader. A lack of motivation to handle the enormous task of leadership will certainly end in failure. The second prerequisite for leadership is for the leader to have followers. Without followers there is no leadership. Leadership is relational – Leadership is psychological – Leadership leverages power appropriately – Leadership is an ART. Effective leadership greatly improves all business processes at all levels. Strong leadership provides product differentiation.
Servant leadership builds trust within the organization. Today’s leadership requirement has turned the hierarchical pyramid upside down. Influence, providing vision, fulfilling needs for acknowledgement, and creating meaningful work for employees is mandatory of current successful leadership. The pay differential for leaders vs. mid-level employees is vast and these higher salaries create higher expectations. Technology has created a world where work never stops and providing leadership around the ever-changing organizational variables is integral.
Leadership has changed forever and soft skills such as relationship building, collaboration, and change management are the key metrics for producing success. This statement is uncomfortable for most leaders because it clashes with their leadership experience. The previous statement is not a blanket statement for the leadership of yesterday, but rather, a harbinger of the leadership of our current future. Soft skill leadership will provide a competitive advantage and competing companies will rush to leverage the art of true leadership. As the environment changes so does leadership practices in order to be financially solvent. The ultimate goal of all business is to make a profit which starts and ends with successful leadership.
