The 21st Century Twists Leadership Skills

Listen to this post 

In his monograph to the book Good to Great, Jim Collins hypothesizes about two types of leadership skills – Executive and Legislative.

I’ve been blessed to work with many varying not-for-profit organizations leading staff and board retreats and dialogue teams and facilitating strategic planning. I’ve learned a lot.

While non-profits have benefited from experiential business knowledge, I’m convinced it’s time for business to learn from the social sector.  An example is Jim’s hypothesis about the legislative leadership skill that exists in the social sector where he says, “… no individual leader … has enough structural power to make the most important decisions by himself or herself.”

And my thought – in the 21st Century business environment – can any leader afford to not be confidently competent at the legislative skill?

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
