Your Leadership Profile
When seeking to develop your own leadership qualities, there are three main things to take into account:
- Generic leadership qualities, i.e. the expectations of the people you will be leading.
- The context, i.e. the nature of the work you do and the culture of your organisation or industry.
- Your personal leadership profile.
Many of the qualities needed - both generic and contextual - can be developed. However, such development can become difficult or demotivating if there is a big difference between the qualities required and your leadership profile. If you are naturally a creative but disorganised individual, it may not be easy for you to develop a career as a leader in the construction industry. You may have to spend a great deal of time dealing with contracts, specifications, budgetary control, etc.
There is an optional, low-cost leadership questionnaire and report pack. It takes an in-depth look at your leadership profile and compares it with what makes a good leader in different contexts. It also includes other materials to help you develop your leadership and management skills. To get the leadership reports, the first step is to complete the leadership questionnaire.
