As organisations move forward into the 21st Century the need for truly effective Leadership has never been greater and yet repeated surveys show the difficulties with meeting this vital goal.Ladies and Gentlemen.. Good afternoon my name is Martin Norbury and our business is Leadership Management UK part of the global LMI businessIn the session I will present some background information relating to this increasing challenge coupled with LMI's Total Leader option to aid solve this problem. I’m also going to reinforce the need for realistic and solid methodology to help key individuals to become effective and productive Leaders and Managers.
So what is leadershipIs it about size and dominanceIts about leading by example … or standing back and watching others make mistakesOr is great leadership about having someone watch your backLet me confirm one thing…. There is NO leadership gene we don’t teach leadership we help people become leaders.
A bit of background if I may
Throughout the presentation I am going to refer to evidence and research to highlight the need for thinking, acting and behaving differently
The Total Leader concept is based on two vital principles:For Organizations to succeed in the 21st century, they must develop leaders throughout the organizationfor leadership development to be effective, it must utilize a complete, integrated, total leadership development process.Too many organizations have attempted to develop leaders with a fragmented, hit-and-miss approach. They focus on only one area, or one attribute, or one facet of leadership believing that is all they need. Leadership is much more complex than that. Trying to develop leaders this way is like trying to become a professional golfer by only practicing your putting. The best golfers are total golfers — they excel at driving, approach shots, sand shots, pitching, chipping, and putting. They also must possess the confidence and mental strength to perform in the heat of competition.The same is true for leaders. The best leaders — Total Leaders — excel at all facets of leadership. The Total Leader concept identifies four broad areas that a person must master to become a Total Leader.
Personal productivity is the ability to manage yourself, manage your time, and manage your priorities to operate at maximum effectiveness.
Personal leadership is the ability to lead yourself — to be a leader of your own life. Most people just let life happen to them and then suffer the consequences. Personal leaders determine the life they want, and then through planning and action make it happen. Personal leadership also means becoming a Total Person™ — a person who is growing and developing in all six areas of life, including Family and Home, Financial and Career, Mental and Educational, Physical and Health, Social and Cultural, and Spiritual and Ethical.
Motivational leadership is the ability to lead and motivate others. A motivational leader understands that people are the source of all progress and innovation, and thus the key to business success in the 21st century. A motivational leader is able to help people develop and use more of their full potential
Strategic leadership is the ability to lead an organization.A strategic leader is able to define and develop the purpose of the organization, the key strategies, the optimum structure, the right people in the right roles, and the most effective processes for the organization to succeed.
The Total Leader concept is a thorough, comprehensive, complete, leadership development process.It literally develops people into Total Leaders! It is difficult to imagine how a top leader in an organization could be effective if he or she were missing one or more of these key components.Many leaders today are frustrated because they haven't had the opportunity to develop in all four areas. They feel like they are standing on the first tee of an important golf tournament and they've never practiced a single swing with their driver. The only thing they have ever practiced is how to putt.That is exactly the problem with leadership development today. When all you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail. The time has come for a new paradigm — a new process for developing leaders
“In a 15 year study of the qualities people most admire in leaders, only four qualities were chosen by more than 50% of respondents. In other words, the majority of people agreed on only four leadership qualities:
So lets look at each area and more importantly solutions the LMI programs addressFirstly Personal productivity…. And why it is so important as a component in the Total Leader Solution
Our second component is Personal Leadership
Onto the organisational focused solutions firstly effective motivational leadership
Taleo conducted research re top 3 concerns in today’s economy
The final part of our jigsaw to complete the quartet is strategic leadership
I mentioned at the beginning that The time has come for a new paradigm — a new process for developing leaders because having the material backed by research is one thing but a key part is the methodology and this is where LMI is unique
I believe Weiss and Molinaro say it better….

“Leadership is personal. It’s not about the company, the community, or the country. It’s about you. If people don’t believe in the messenger, they won’t believe the message.

“A bad economy is the test of an organization’s culture. In good times, consumer demand can disguise the lapses in productivity that disengagement causes.

“Today, leaders are too busy and will not attend leadership programs that ask them to sit in a classroom for long periods of time.
