What are the top leadership skills?
The leaders of today are having to cope with a new reality and simply cannot have all right answers. Companies are therefore moving away from traditional command-and-control practices towards a more collaborative and supportive management style where guidance, over instructions, is offered. As a result, soft skills such as empathy, communication, adaptability and creativity are increasingly being cited as the most important skills, even more so than hard skills (Google, 2015)
What are some examples of different types of leadership styles?
Authoritative – An authoritative leader sets clear expectations of their vision and engages their workforce along the way to help achieve a vision. An authoritative leader offers direction and guidance to maintain enthusiasm during the process, to achieve a sense of accomplishment throughout an endeavour The success of authoritative leadership largely depends on the emotional intelligence and soft skills of the leader.
Democratic – Democratic leaders inspire creativity and ask their team members their opinions, before making a final decision. Democratic leaders get employees to do what they want to be done but in a way that the employees want to do it.
Coaching – A coaching leadership style inspires creativity and collaboration and does not follow command and control practices. Coaching leaders want to continuously develop their team members. They believe everyone has power within themselves and may give guidance on how to tap into their potential.
What is a leadership development framework?
A leadership development framework outlines the behaviours of effective leadership. It represents the standard for leadership behaviours of the organisations, providing a toolkit of principles that managers and teams can use, to carry out their roles and responsibilities. CoachHub’s leadership development framework, which we encourage our clients to follow follows the principle of “grow as a person, inspire as a leader.”
