WHAT IT REALLY TAKES TO BE A LEADER IN 2021

(Hint – It isn’t working longer hours)

“I didn’t really know what I wanted until you challenged me to imagine what was really possible.

I went into my boss’s office, described the new role I wanted and they created it for me. I am happy; I got everything I wanted and more.”

Sound Solutions

Does this sound like you?

  • You’ve checked all the boxes in the performance review system. You have the certification. You’ve taken the leadership course and all of the training. You have years of experience to bring to the table, but you’re still not getting ahead.
  • You don’t seem to fit the mould. You’re just as good as everyone else you work with, but the same type of people keep getting promoted.
  • The harder you work, the more frustrated you get. Nobody seems to pay attention to you. The harder you try to fit in, the harder it is to get ahead.

If so, you’re in the right place!

THE PATH TO LEADERSHIP IS NOT CLEAR

 

Most people and organizations believe that technical skills and years of experience are what it takes to be a great leader.

You keep your head down, work hard, and expect a reward.

When this strategy doesn’t work, it makes you feel overwhelmed and frustrated. It can even cause you to question whether you have what it takes to be a leader.

The truth is leadership is more about influence than it is about technical skills and years of experience. When organizations look for their next leader, they’re looking for an influencer, not a cog in the wheel.

A lot of training courses today are task-focused. They don’t include the behavioural side of things. To move to the next level and lead others, you need to demonstrate the behaviours that inspire, influence and motivate others.

“Since I joined a year ago I’ve gotten a promotion and I’ve built my professional brand regionally and nationally. 

My success is largely attributed to the program – I would not be as confident and successful as I am without it.”

Marketing Coordinator, Halifax, NS
