How do you lead?
The last couple of years have truly tested leadership skills. Many of us now feel we need to retune our leadership style. This isn’t a seismic shift in our styles just a check that we are still leading our teams in the direction we want to go in.
We all build our lives differently. As leaders and managers we all have goals we aim for. These goals can be transient and can be left behind. Or goals can be attached to our very soul and can’t be let go. One persons driving ambition may seem a folly to another. The trick is not to let go of what you really want to do.
Different theme tunes
In a way this is reflected in our different tastes in music. We all have different tracks that just hit our sole. That means we all have musicians who we have never met who have had a huge effect on our lives.
One of ours was Meatloaf a highly unlikely rock star who sadly left us this January.
Why ‘Bat out of Hell?’
Meatloaf’s iconic theme tune ‘Bat of Hell‘ will not be to everyone’s tastes. Now, if you have time, please bear with me and listen to the words in the track carefully.
Clearly the character in the song had issues BUT nothing including death would divert him from his goal.
Ask yourself how strongly are you attached to your organizations goals? More importantly how attached is your team to the goals you are aiming for?
These last few months we have worked with students on the very start of building their businesses, with Cumbrian Businesses building and growing their businesses and with individuals and organizations giving their time to help fix global problems around carbon emissions and the the faltering health system.
Creating a solution
We are now working with a small group to build a leadership program for businesses with a turnover of £4m – £50m here in the North that will be second to none.
