Self-Reliant Leadership is being self-reliant for the purpose of serving others. It is knowing which questions to ask, and having the courage to answer them and act to produce extraordinary results. The right questions shape priorities and help guide individuals, teams and organizations towards greater resourcefulness, collaboration and focus.
Continuously develop self and learn from adversity to build resourcefulness
The process of self-discovery is the first step in leading others. Leaders must know themselves, build on their core strengths, and accept – and even welcome – adversity as a tool for positive change.
Develop and learn from others to build collaboration
Leaders must invest in the development of others, and take on the dual role of pupil and teacher. Challenge people to think, and make it safe for people to speak up, experiment, and take risks.
Create a culture of discipline within your organization to build focus
Organizational development goes beyond leadership traits and deals with the strategic alignment levers that drive high performance. Leaders must align a focused vision across an organization to accelerate change and drive growth.
