The world of leadership is changing


Published on

In this session Keith Stopforth explored the world of leadership as it is now. The profound changes in society, commerce, technology and the global economy that are driving change at the fastest pace many leaders have ever known. Keith looked at leaders and how they can survive in this environment focusing on the four key areas that are central requirements for 21st century leaders to master:

Learning Agility

The focus is on leaders at all levels and for those who have to lead without authority - such as project leaders. Often they have to influence and negotiate resources with people and this can draw on the four areas above even more intensely.

Projects often involve challenges such as meeting deadlines, building commitment and working with limited resources- perhaps more so for the interim project manager negotiating his/her way around companies with the pressure of tight deadlines. At these times resilience and learning agility are needed even more so.

Keith's style is to facilitate, be slightly provocative and get the audience thinking in groups so that the learning can be shared across the room

At the end of this session the audience will:

Have considered a different model of effective leadership and debated its flaws and merits
Have shared stories and practice and how they are resolving leadership challenges now
Be inspired to reconsider their own skills and what they need to develop these further

  10. 10. Resilience • A buzzword or impossible goal? To some balancing life, work and family demands unrelenting energy but are they resilient? • AMBIGUITY,COMPLEXITY and WORKING in THE GREY are facts for most leaders in these times- not just occasional events • MANAGING CHANGE as a phrase should be banned? CHANGE is all we know now. • SELF AWARENESS- is key to becoming resilient- recognising where you get your energy from and when someone or something is taking it • FITNESS both MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY is required- you don’t need to run marathons every month but you need to DO SOMETHING to get rid of that TOXIC BUILD UP • Your TEAM will take it all- if you let them… Keith Stopforth Consultancy Ltd
  11. 11. Stress and the Bottom Line Impact… • Presenteeism- is impacting productivity- 2 out of 3 people attended work whilst feeling ill in 2013- Robertson Cooper • 2007-10-Top Cause of Stress- “ Too much change in the workplace” • 2011-13- Top Cause of Stress- “ Not enough time to do the job” • CIPD 2012- 57% rank workload as one of the Top 3 causes of stress • Mcleod- Low engagement scores- 32.7 % lower operating income • High engagement scores-19.2% growth Keith Stopforth Consultancy Ltd
  12. 12. Networked • Networks need to be deep and broad- “ I’m not always comfortable with networking” - does not work anymore-it’s a NECESSITY • EXTERNAL NETWORKS are critical if you are to have a lifelong career-DON’T CUT YOURSELF OFF • COMPLEXITY, MATRIX WORKING and CHANGING STAKEHOLDERS is happening and will continue to happen- does your LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT focus on this? • COMMERCIAL AWARENESS- be curious about your business, your market, your sector, your competitors-we all need to be COMMERCIAL Keith Stopforth Consultancy Ltd
  13. 13. LEARNING AGILITY • THE HABIT OF LEARNING- is continuous-and it’s not just formal- learning happens in many ways but SELF LIMITING BELIEFS block our way everyday. • JUDGEMENT, DECISION MAKING and RAPID ACTION are qualities needed at every level of LEADERSHIP and FOLLOWERSHIP • LEADERS must learn the habit of anticipating change- waiting for it has only one consequence ultimately • SEEK FORGIVENESS rather than wait to be told? • LEARNING is faster now- you have to work with it • PERFECT is not doable any more - NEARLY will have to do.
