In my recent role of program leader I've been thinking a lot about these elements. A lot of what happens in the program is out of my control, but I'm OK with that, because that also means I get to keep on being me. Here's the list (all items quoted directly form the article) and, yes, they generally reflect my experience:
- leadership is about enabling a conducive environment for people to come together and create a shared experience
- leaders don’t drive for goals. They navigate for intended effects
- leaders base their organizational culture on individual autonomy and agency, collective responsibility, and mutual accountability
- one’s work integrates with, rather than balancing in opposition against, one’s lifecontemporary leadership employs strengths-based, appreciative practices
Is this listicle Thursday? I don't know. I don't really like linking to them. But when I do, I like to list the list, and take the surprise out of them. That way, when you go read the article, it's not because you're responding to clickbait.
