Create Your Personal Leadership Philosophy
Ø An effective leadership philosophy is different than your personal purpose, values, and valued behaviors. While your leadership philosophy will be built upon the foundation your clear personal purpose and values statement creates, it is specific to your leadership efforts (in the workplace, in a community organization, wherever you are taking a leadership role).
Ø Let’s define an effective leadership philosophy as a values-aligned statement that helps you inspire consistent high performance and positive relationships with all of your team members, every day. It is NOT espousing leadership theories from recent business book (or even HBRs readings). Rather, it is developing your own personal, authentic, philosophy that derives from your core beliefs. I would hope that the materials you are exposed to in this course will aid in your journey.
