  2. 2. Opening Statements “A true leader is one that loves their followers more than themselves.” “In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.“ - Harry S. Truman “Communities that include everyone become stronger and everyone wins." - Jane Imbody Inclusion 2
  3. 3. The Six Leadership Styles (Source: Daniel Goleman) Daniel Jay Goleman (born March 7, 1946) is an author, psychologist and science journalist. According to Daniel Goleman's theory on leadership, a successful leader is dynamic and does not subscribe to one particular leadership style. Leadership styles should be situational and dynamic. Leadership styles impact the entire organisation. If senior management have differing leadership styles then there is a potential for conflict between ‘Departments’. 3
  4. 4. Driving the S-Bends: Each Department has differing maturity levels Leadership styles should be situational and dynamic. Leadership Style A Leadership Style U Department A Leadership Style B Your Business Unit Leadership styles impact the entire organisation. If senior management have differing leadership styles then there is a potential for conflict between ‘Departments’. Senior management may use any one of the six styles at any given time, producing yet another dynamic. Department B Leadership Style C Department C 4

Bringing down the organisation Where is your centre of gravity? “Rational discourse requires that you win an argument through the strength of what you say and not the strength of your insults.” - Tuli Madonsela, Public Protector, South Africa 7
  8. 8. US-based online retailer Zappos removes management bureaucracy “The Las Vegas-based online retailer Zappos has long been known to do things its own way. It will eliminate traditional managers, do away with the typical corporate hierarchy and get rid of job titles, at least internally. The unusual approach is called a “holacracy.” The move is an effort to keep the 1,500-person company from becoming too rigid, too unwieldy and too bureaucratic as it grows. The concept has a couple of high-profile devotees — Twitter cofounder Evan Williams uses it at his new company, Medium, and time management guru David Allen uses it run his firm. At its core, a holacracy aims to organize a company around the work that needs to be done instead of around the people who do it.” Point to Ponder: How do natural leaders perform in such an environment? 8 Source: Jena McGregor
  9. 9. Today’s Successful Leaders are Genuine and Caring People Genuine & Approachable Personality Leaders have specific attributes that cannot be ‘faked’ Intellect • Natural leaders can inspire and grow an organisation • Mediocre managers will pull an organisation into the mire A Changing Future: Organisations must allow each employee to utilise their particular leadership capabilities Inclusion 9
  10. 10. Leadership permeates the Modern-Day Organisation Closing: “For an organisation to be able to perform in the current competitive landscape, every employee needs to have the mind-set to lead, innovate and be engaged with driving its strategy – unlike traditional approaches of overinvesting in a few chosen ones who can lead many.” - Ravi Shankar, Chief People Officer, Mindtree Inclusion 10
