LEADER, KNOW THYSELF
Change starts and ends with individual leaders, so as a leader, ask yourself: How energised, motivated and engaged are you in your job? What drives you? What were your experiences as a leader that made you grow and become engaged? How can you support others in being exposed to similar experiences? What are your beliefs about the role of the leader? What are your beliefs about people and work? How present are you with others? If not you, then who? Align HR policies Key areas to review are: selection, rewards, performance management, succession planning and internal mobility (e.g. promotions, transfers). Are these policies addressing your leadership needs or working against you in developing a pipeline of strong and effective leaders?
