OUR FOUNDATION …
It isn’t enough to have the right skills and experiences these days, but what else is there? Leadership comes down to at least three things:
CHARACTER is who you are, what you have experienced and how you are defined by yourself and those that matter to you. It also includes a knowledge of your strengths and convictions, as well as a willingness to admit your mistakes, even when others might not be willing to admit their own. What you want, who you know, and your willingness to take responsibility in tough situations are key to your leadership.
COMPETENCE is how you lead. It is necessary to have the right skills and experiences to lead effectively. To get the job done, you need to understand your areas of strength and also be able to apply the lessons you have learned from past experiences to future challenges and opportunities you face.
CALLING is why you lead. While not every leader would say they are called to lead, the fact is that you have chosen to be responsible for the work and development of someone else. In so many cases, there is a high cost paid for making that choice. There is so much at stake for leaders who have answered the call to lead others, and we believe leaders must not only be willing to consider the costs, but also pay a personal price if necessary.
