While leadership is accountable for the Performance and the Results. Leadership doesn’t cause the results. Leaders are not necessarily causing the results themselves. They are creating the environment in which results happen.
The environment in which results happen includes the culture of the team and organization. It also includes the paradigm in which people operate.
To transform the paradigm in which people operate, firstly the leaders need to transform the perceptions and help the team to transform the perceptions.
Unless there are new perceptions, there is no new paradigm and no innovation. No real Leadership.
There are 3 key perceptions that the leaders and the team need to transform:
- Perceptions about the stakeholders, their challenges, their ambitions and their world view
- Perceptions about Self – as individuals and as team
- Perceptions others have about you – again as individuals and as team/organization
Once the perceptions are transformed, then the game shows up differently. A new paradigm is created.
A new paradigm in which the stakeholders can give up their positions and get into the space of understanding multiple views, multiple concerns and include all of them in the learning journey.
Inside this new paradigm there is space for collaboration and co-creation.
This is the beginning of a new era of leadership – Leadership of the 21st Century.
