UnCommon Leadership for the New Reality provides the roadmap to evaluate oneself, where you are going, and what inspiring leadership looks like in the New Reality.
Leadership Starts with Your Beliefs
In recent years, the pandemic and other social and economic shifts have brought us into what Ed calls a New Reality in the workplace. People’s expectations have changed. Employees are more in charge and more likely to dictate the terms of their work. Wise leaders will see them, and lead them, as individual human beings, not cogs in a machine. And the results will be well worth the effort. Leaders are wise to go beyond performance figures and look deeply into both themselves and their people. If done seriously, that goes all the way down to beliefs. Beliefs? You may think that’s for religion or imagination. But it’s also for leadership. And without it, leadership—your leadership—will suffer. Not might suffer. Will suffer. In one way or another, everything we think and do in all areas of life to some degree starts with our beliefs.
Leadership Requires 20/20 Vision
The number-one factor to increase employee engagement is in the hands of the leader: Vision. Why is vision so important? Because vision provides hope for the future—yes, for the organization but also for the employees’ personal benefit, and that’s where they will respond and produce. Do you have a vision for your own life? If not, you’re likely drifting because vision is the creation of a preferable future, something to aim at and become. Then, do you have a vision for your organization? If not, the whole thing will drift. What is the future at which you aim and want your organization to become? Everything else is secondary until you can express it clearly and simply. And one more step comes in here. Is everyone on board with the vision? And do they believe in it? Vision is only as effective as the participant’s engagement.
Leadership is in the Eye of the Beholder
People can experience the same event or interact with the same person and come away with completely different versions of that event or person. Our beliefs about ourselves and others largely define what type of leader inspires and motivates us. And likewise, the way others view us largely determines how much they follow. In the New Reality in which we now live, we must embrace the fact that we are unique individuals. One-size-fits-all leadership is officially dead.Leadership is all about influence. And it’s not merely something we do; it rises from who we are. We can’t escape being a leader. Whether we know it or not, we’re always leading. And whether we want to or not, we are always leading. We’re never not leading.
