We're back for part two of three in our Leadership Qualities Needed In Today's Work Environment series. Last week the conversation focused on being a humble leader, review part one here.
My question for you this week... Do you have the qualities of an innovative leader?
According to recent quantitative research reported by McKinsey, there are roughly 20 fundamental components of leadership that correlate closely to organization performance.
Progressive leaders who demonstrate these components are better able to support change and innovation in their organizations.
McKinsey discovered in their research that four key leadership attributes help organizations stand out and move forward at a distinctive pace.
The four attributes are Insight, Integrity, Courage, and Agility.
As you read through the list below, do a mental assessment as to how well you demonstrate each of these traits. Then pick one or two that you’d like to strengthen.
Use this tool to assess yourself on how well you are doing with the Four Leadership Attributes and the 20 traits. Consider asking your team and manager to give you feedback as well.
The next round of Women Manager Leadership Cohorts starts in September. Registration is now open!
