What do Genghis Khan, Lawrence of Arabia, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Allan Leighton and Sir Richard Branson have in common?
They were/are all successful leaders, but with very different leadership styles. They all had a strong determination to deliver. They have all had impact in their time.
A recent interim report by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) on their three year programme, Shaping the Future, has shown that leadership is a key factor in sustainability. Working with six major organisations, it has identified that people management is critical to long term sustainable performance.
The report lists a number of core ‘enablers’, which bring this about. These are
- Organisational development.
Also running across those three are
- a strong performance-focused culture
- clear and consistent communication
- evaluation measures.
