The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership®
A framework to understand leadership roles.
The world is changing at an unprecedented pace.
Every day, leaders are making countless decisions and facing problems they’ve never encountered before. What worked yesterday can change overnight. The speed is relentless, and the stakes are high, but the rewards are great for those who can lead a team to consistently achieve extraordinary results.
So how can leaders stay ahead of the curve and differentiate themselves and their teams when so much is changing so quickly?
Meet The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership®.
Even in the most turbulent times, there are four leadership roles that are highly predictive of success. We call these leadership roles essential because as leaders consciously lead themselves and their teams in alignment with these roles, they lay the foundation for effective leadership.
The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership Overview
Trust starts with a leader’s own character and competence—the credibility that allows leaders to intentionally build a culture of trust.Learn More
Effective leaders create a shared vision and strategy and communicate it so powerfully that others join them on the journey.Learn More
Leaders must not only think big, but also execute their vision and strategy all the way through to completion with and through others.Learn More
Leaders who are promoted to mid- to senior-level leadership roles often struggle to achieve the next level of results. What worked for them as individual contributors may not work for them in their leadership roles. They need a simple, practical framework that forms the basis of leadership success.
Experienced mid- to senior-level leaders need hands-on work sessions that allow them to do real work and implement their ideas with their teams, and they need multiple learning modalities to accommodate their schedules.
