The ‘How’ of Leaders

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

20131031_180805I was speaking to Dov Seidman, the Founder and CEO of LRN after he spoke at an RSA event recently.

The consultancy helps over 500 companies worldwide and is advocating more innovative structures and cultures.

His comment was that in the 21st century, we have gone from being connected, to interconnected, to interdependent and whether it be Government, Business, or Society, we all rise or fall together. This interdependency is also between peoples, nations and cultures, so the rise and fall can become critical if not acknowledged and fostered.

He is promoting the idea of ‘How’, meaning that it is no longer about what a leader does but how a leader does it, that matters. This reinforces the current thinking about leadership in that the role of a leader is now more about coaching, communicating, connecting, collaborating, creating a culture that accepts mistakes, will ¬†apologise, change things and move forward. It’s about trusting people to do the job they’ve been asked to do, giving power to those people and supporting those that need it.

There is still a tendency to ‘micro-manage’, born out of a desire to control. This will not bring out the best in people and only by a more inclusive and supportive approach, will leaders of this century survive.
