Leaders today are challenged to meet a growing list of seemingly contradictory demands. Finding ways to acknowledge these contradictions and build on the interdependencies of outcomes and shareholders is what Interdependent Leadership is all about.
The day-to-day operation of any organization involves built-in tensions resulting from essential but contradictory demands. Traditionally, leaders have been expected to choose from these demands, taking an “either-or” approach. Recent studies have emphasized the importance for leaders to integrate these seemingly paradoxical challenges by finding a balance between them.
Interdependent Leadership presents a framework for leaders to manage the multiple demands of their organizations, not by “solving” individual problems, but by understanding and leveraging the interdependencies involved. Through presentation, experiential challenges, discussion and real-life application, participants learn the dynamics of interdependency and the skills needed to leverage them. An action-learning project combined with one-to-one coaching prepares participants to apply the skills of interdependent leadership, making them much more effective and agile leaders. Our Interdependent Leadership program is designed to support the enhanced behaviors and thinking associated with vertical leadership development.
- Develop an understanding of how individual, team and organizational leadership are interdependent
- Identify and map these interdependencies
- Assess the impacts of these interdependencies and use action learning to develop the skills to leverage them
