Leaders unleash talent and capability by carrying out the 4 Imperatives of Great Leaders.
They are sequential in that one builds upon another, and simultaneous—meaning that you must constantly pay attention to all four in order to sustain outstanding performance. Great leaders focus on these four imperatives:
Inspire Trust—to build credibility as a leader, so that people will trust you with their highest efforts.
Clarify Purpose—to define a clear and compelling purpose that people will want to offer their best to achieve.
Align Systems—to create systems of success that support the purpose and goals of the organization, enable people to do their best work, operate independently of you, and endure over time.
Unleash Talent—to develop a winning team, where people’s unique talents are leveraged against clear performance expectations in a way that encourages responsibility and growth.
