In this episode, we explore the historical shift in leadership. We need to understand it in order to become better leaders.
First, we will explore the history of leadership. We need to remember that Leadership evolves within an historical context. From the industrialisation of europe to what we call today the digital transformation. We saw the creation of hierarchical pyramid in the 1900s and almost 100 years later the the pyramid breaks down.
Second, we describe leadership practices that you can look at to improve your leadership. There are many theories of leadership I prefer to focus on James Kouzes & Barry Posners Leadership Practice Inventory in short LPI.
Third, we discover followership. We sometimes forget to talk about the followers but they are as valuable as the leader because they make you a leader. We can use Robert Kelley’s Followership dimensions and styles* to understand that. *adapted from Kellerman (2008) https://www.medicalprotection.org/uk/articles/followership-the-forgotten-part-of-leadership
To conclude, we link the three topics discussed today. How does understanding the evolution of leadership, its practices and followership can impact your leadership?
