"Management is the efficiency of climbing the ladder; Leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall." ... Stephen Covey.
Every organization wants and needs leadership. Organizations everywhere now concentrate on seeking leaders, not managers. Leaders are needed as agents of change to guide organizations towards success. It's not a matter of being trendy or progressive; it's a matter of survival in a rapidly and continuously changing business environment.
Leadership is an organization's key competitive advantage. It is an essential element for all levels of an organization, not just for the CEO. Today's entrepreneurial leadership requires a willingness to provide a continuous focus on opportunity and challenge with experimentation and risk of both success and failure.
Why is leadership so important? ... it has a dramatic impact on the bottom-line. According to a recent study, the stock price of companies perceived as being "well led" grew 900% over a 10-year period, compared with just 74% growth in companies perceived to lack good leadership.
The key to future competitive advantage will be the quality and capacity an organization's leadership. In today's business environment, there is a need for vision and inspiration, creative collaboration, co-leadership and relationship-building - all part of Leadership, not just management. The ability to see changes in our world and to take appropriate action will influence the course of destiny for our organization, and will ultimately determine our success as leaders.
