A preliminary responsibility of leadership is to create and uphold a culture for all to excel. How important is the culture of a group? As Peter Drucker research adamantly attests to, “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Without the proper culture being set and directed with leadership, very little will be accomplished.
A leader focuses to set the stage for and build upon the culture of winning teams. The Team:
- Engages each member to learn, improve and succeed as contributors to the unified culture. Know that just one negative offsets many positives, all need to engage.
- Focuses and aligns the individuals in the culture to extend and expand the value each generates with their performance. The depth of each contributors experience continually evolves with each novel opportunity to work through disruptions.
- Individuals learn and thrive as an active/applied learning professional with the group, well above the expectations they initially held for themselves. Each makes the other better.
Administered directives of the leadership culture are sustained in the balance of control and/or consent to fit the culture of the group. Enough control to successfully direct and enough consent to grow an engaged level of autonomy through lived experiences accomplished together.
“Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.” — Peter Drucker —
