Perhaps one of the most frequently mentioned words in business management literature is leadership from very different perspectives; including leadership styles, the impact that leadership has on the management and culture of the company, observable behaviors in the different leadership styles, among others. Leadership styles have also been characterized by different names, including collaborative leadership and leadership in service.
At Business Transformation Consortium we propose to approach leadership from an additional perspective which we have found necessary for an overall good operation of the company, and essential for Transforming and Managing the company as a whole: Synchronous Leadership.
Synchronous leadership goes beyond leadership in service and collaborative leadership; though it goes through both of them. The qualities of humility, service, genuine interest in the common good, pro-activity and personal responsibility are necessary to reach synchronicity.
Synchronous leadership, or reaching synchronicity in the Executive Committee, means that each and every one of its members has CONSISTENTLY absolute clarity about the following:
This clarity causes the Executive Committee to act as one entity and one voice in the following:
Getting here takes time, and it is necessary to go through several stages of the Transformation Route. It is important to go through these stages with consistency, discipline and full leadership from the CEO, accompanied by his Transformation Architect:
This scenario may seem ideal but unreal. However, it is quite real and plausible to reach synchronicity; We have accompanied Management Teams that have developed Synchronous Leadership in each of its members and the results for the Company, Employees and the Community in general have been spectacular. This should be the necessary ambition for the Executive Committee and there must be awareness that arriving here is not by declaration, but by traveling the path of Transformation of the Executive Committee itself.
