Fundamentals of Leadership

Still the most challenging topic most companies face in maintenance and reliability is one of leadership. Many organizations feel that they are not achieving the effectiveness and efficiency they believe they should due to a lack of understanding of leadership. The one thing that has stood out in my recent visits to organizations to help with this challenge has been the lack of a fundamental of leadership – managing. The interesting part is that each organization recognized they needed work on things like motivation, inspiration, involvement, engagement etc. but none recognized that their structure and systems for managing were broken. If we don’t have the systems in place to manage and control how do we expect to demonstrate those afore-mentioned traits of leaders? We need to remember that a good manager may be a good leader, but good leaders MUST be good managers.

Too often we think of leadership in the philosophical terms that were mentioned but as the leadership guru Peter Drucker said, ‘Effective leadership is not about making speeches and being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.’

So, what are the things that need to be in place to allow us to manage effectively and at the same time provide the opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills?

  1. Goals
  2. Expectations
  3. Communication
  4. Resources
  5. Delegation
  6. Change Management
  7. Measure
  8. Realities
  9. Accountability
  10. Celebrate

Under each of these topics there are tools, tasks and methodologies that will help us ensure we are managing the right things in the right ways and so allow us to become the leaders we can be. In this webinar, we go into more depth about each and provide hints for improving the chances for success and some watch outs for those things that might trip you up.
