Stewardship: The “S” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

We’ve now reached the final letter in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S Model: S for Stewardship.  In my previous blogs I’ve shared the meaning of L for Leadership; E for Ethics; A for Alignment; D for Decision Making; E for Engagement; and R for Resilience.  I trust you have found each component of my model helpful and that … More Stewardship: The “S” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

Resilience: The “R” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

The letter “R” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model stands for resilience, which literally means to “bounce back.” Effective leaders meet inevitable obstacles and setbacks with optimism and energy.

Leaders must assume that not everyone is motivated … More Engagement: The Second “E” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

Decision-Making: The “D” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

The next letter in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Development Model is D. D stands for Decision-Making. Leaders must humble themselves and acknowledge that they may not be the smartest one on the team, or the one with the best perspective on every issue at all times. Leaders take the time to identify, gather and then analyze the … More Decision-Making: The “D” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model

Alignment: The “A” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model.

The next letter in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Development Model is A. A stands for alignment. When people clearly understand the vision, mission and strategy of the organization, there is alignment. When employees understand how their job contributes to the fulfillment of the vision and mission, there is alignment. When employees’ personal values are in agreement with … More Alignment: The “A” in the L.E.A.D.E.R.S. Model.
