Leadership for the Future:


How to be a better leader and build effective leadership

Sunday 29th Sep 2013 | Crowne Plaza - Kingdom of Bahrain

About the forum


In this leadership forum, we will answer three questions:
1. Why does leadership matter?
Improving leadership delivers value to key stakeholders inside and outside the organization. As a result of better leadership, Employees will be more productive Organization strategies will be implemented Customers will increase customer share Investors will have more confidence Communities will have better reputation We will quantify the value of leadership for individuals who want to be better leaders and for organizations trying to build better leadership. Leadership differentiators identifies how leaders behaviors inside a company should reflect the expectations of customers outside the company. We have found that the 3040%- of sustainable leadership requires thinking about how external expectations are related to internal leadership behaviors. We will review the six steps in building better leadership in a company. Leaders who do these six steps can assure better leadership in their organization. As a result of this module, each participant will be able to identify what they can do to be a more effective leader.

3. How do we sustain our leadership goals?

We have found that many leaders want to improve and know what to improve, but they are not able to sustain their goals. This module summarizes research and practice on how leaders do what they know they should. By synthesizing research on change, self-discipline, influence, habits, and leadership development, we will discuss 7 factors for how leaders can sustain what they intend: Simplicity: how can I focus on a few key actions and behaviors that have the highest impact?

2. What makes an effective leader?

By examining trends in leadership thinking, we will identify the keys to being an effective leader. We will talk about the shift from leader (the individual as a leader) to leadership (the collective leadership within an organization). We will also talk about the shift from leaders focusing inside the company to outside. These two trends create a logic for a leadership brand. Effective leaders follow a leadership brand by doing both the code and the differentiators. Leadership Code identifies five core factors for effective leader: Strategist: leaders set direction for the future of the organization Executor: leaders get things done with accountability and ability to change

Accountable: how can I ensure that I am accountable for making my change happen?

Time: how can I make sure that my aspirations show up in my calendar?

Resources: how do I resource (through coaching and HR practices) the ability to sustain change? Tracking: how do I measure my progress?

Talent manager: leaders communicate and coach people

Meliorate: how do I continually learn and grow?

Human capital developer: leaders develop future leaders

Personal proficiency: leaders build personal trust so that others follow them We will identify specific actions and tools that leaders can master to deliver on these leadership basics.

Emotion: how do I bring personal emotion and passion to my work?

Leadership sustainability occurs when leaders master these seven principles for themselves and when the help those they lead master them as well. Leaders matter. Leadership matters more. Leadership sustainability matters most.
