Quality of Leadership
Leadership does not just refer to the person or persons at the top of
the organisation. Leadership is much broader and more widespread.
Leadership is multi-dimensional and the quality of leadership demonstrates itself in different ways:
||At the individual level through the behaviour of every individual leader;
At the team level through the successfulness of leadership teams;
||At the organisational level through the leadership culture and the core values of the organisation.
Leaders are not just the people with a formal leader's role. Also the
leading professionals, the thought leaders of an organisation, have a
strong influence in shaping its leadership culture. This happens in
the most natural way, by personally setting the standard, being
followed by the people around them, by setting the living
example and by the way in which they inspire people, both inside
and outside the organisation. These leaders create the professional
image of the organisation in its markets.
Not only does leadership involve the performance of leader's roles and giving substance to mission, vision and strategy, but also and in particular it involves interpretation, norms and values.
