The practice of leadership

Agile leaders know intuitively that their ability to be agile comes with its challenges. Just because a leader can bend or flex in the environment in which they find themselves doesn’t always mean smooth sailing. In fact, agile leaders know they will experience push back, resistance, and even passive-aggressive behavior when they are trying to create a culture that supports leadership and leadership development.

Creating a “culture of leadership” requires a framework for practicing good leadership. The practice of good leadership includes an understanding of how to identify issues, take advantage of opportunities and measure outcomes.

    I think that a ‘culture of leadership’ must recognize that anyone can be a leader. Leadership isn’t what you do, it’s who you are. Real leadership isn’t something you announce you’re doing—it’s pronounced as done in the eye of the beholder.

    Additionally, leadership and management are recognized as separate, but I believe that the model has changed since Warren Bennis defined 13 differences in “On Becoming a Leader.”

    I’m starting a conversation at LeadershipTurn.com that will look at his 13 differences in light of today’s workforce. I’d love to have you participate.
