No organisation can perform
to the best of its potential without developing its leaders
...the people who inspire others to achieve and perform. Research has long established that the key influence on an individual’s performance is the line manager they work with.
In today’s demanding environments, many fundamental leadership qualities need to be acquired early in an individual’s career – and reinforced on a regular basis. That is especially true in the context of functional initiatives such as improvements in sales, marketing and/or service.
What makes a great leader has long been a topic of study and debate in management circles. Whilst the theories uncover widely different styles and personalities, some key attributes are seen as common to successful leadership.
Learning Areas Covered by Imparta: Leadership
Individuals in leadership roles need to demonstrate a set of core skills as part of ‘making things happen’ in their areas of responsibility… whether they are the CEO or a line manager.
Helping to develop the organisation’s objectives and set its strategic direction will require leaders to draw on strong problem solving skills to assess issues and options, leading to cohesive decisions to drive the business forward. Dealing with the changes frequently forced on organisations by dynamic markets will also demand the personal qualities required to accept incoming information and be ready to flex and adapt if needed.

The real measure of a leader is how well they achieve their objectives by inspiring others to action, and by acting as a role model, fostering a sense of belonging, creativity, and participation amongst those they work with. They develop the organisation’s ‘people assets’ by identifying what personal characteristics and behaviours are needed – in themselves and others – to build competitive advantage. Where gaps in capabilities are perceived, the leaders’ key role is to find the most appropriate ways to build capability, and search out appropriate best practice or ‘next’ practice and processes to improve performance.
