Leading across your organisation

Addressing the most pressing and complex challenges facing you, is the work of leadership across an organisation. There is a specific skill set that you can learn, improve and master.

Having a wider impact

Organisational leadership impacts the wider organisation, not just a specific team. It is borne out of a desire to make a difference and create positive change. Wise organisations encourage organisational leadership at all levels – it is not just the preserve of senior leaders.

Leading in disruption

Organisational leadership is most needed when external or internal changes disrupt the status quo and current ways of working. External challenges might be the sudden increase in the price of materials, or the loss of a major client. Internally focused challenges might be the impact of a new CEO or a merger. A very specific set of tools is needed for leading these changes positively.

Tools for effective leadership

Tools that are often overlooked during times of disruption and complexity are:

  • Effectively channelling people’s feelings of loss, so they can face the new situation positively
  • Being curious about differing perspectives and using this intelligence to plan a way forward
  • Spending time on the balcony
  • Keeping focused and avoiding overwhelm

We talk about these tools and more in our book ‘Adapt, Grow, Achieve’.
