5 Steps to Self Leadership
Cecil Joel David, HR Consultant, India
Mr Khuram, I feel that leadership is required at every level of the organization. For me being proactive enough to complete one's task, even at the front line level of hierarchy, in the best possible manner and at the same time keeping the best interests of the organization intact is as much an example of leadership as is, for example steering the organization from loss to profit making by the top most leader.
I also feel that the development/ encouragement of self-leadership can be made possible in five steps:
a) selection of the best person available for the job
b) giving the person a clear understanding of the expectations from his or her role
c) mentoring and coaching of the best quality be provided to the person
d) providing the person with ample space to perform as well as realigning the person to the vision of the organization and hence in a way reminding, reiterating expectations, and
e) having faith not only in his or her capability but also the mentors effectiveness and judgment.
