the leading frame
The core day to day functionality of leadership is leading minds, herald a start and sustain their inspiration towards vision & mission accomplishment and behold excitement at each attainment. It is in a way unfolding of a psychological thriller with a cast of characters in which there is
Influencing, Negotiating, Inspiring, Communicating, Asserting, Delegating, Empowering, Disrupting, Innovating, Problem Solving, Strategising, Planning, Coaching, Mentoring, Walking the Talk
and other aspects of doing and being.
All of the above demands dealing with other minds who offers FRAME OF REFERENCE as well as contrasting perspectives that the leader needs to sift through in order to engage in decision making and action.
The leading mind has to stagecraft momentum in other minds of own organisation as well as deal with minds in the organisation's ecosystem in a 'match wits' market place
but there are immense APPERCEPTIVE aspects at play, such is the labour of assimilation.
HEADSTRIDE APPROPRIATES ATTENTION TO THESE
APPERCEPTIVE ELEMENTS IN THE MIND THAT
HOW THE LEADER
INTERPRETS, PERCEIVES & DECIDES
THESE ASPECTS PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN THE WAY LEADERS VIEW BUSINESS. WHY ONE BUSINESS TAKES A CERTAIN ACTION AND WHY ANOTHER BUSINESS DOES NOT.
THE WAY ITS ENMESHED
PROGRAM BUILDING BLOCKS
SPECIFICS, CHARACTERISTICS, CONSTITUENTS, TAKEAWAYS
WHY HAVE SUCH A PROGRAM?
Leaders and the ones aspiring to become one have thought patterns, habits, attitudes and inference contagion, kneaded into their existence all of which have cognitive, affective and behavioural components. These are case-hardened and densified over a period of time and has become one’s
APPERCEPTIVE VIEWING CONDUIT
TO THE WORLD.
Business conditions for future will always be turbulent, the market whirl will prevail and there is going to be no privileged position. The demand for speed of decision & execution itself will be a killer. To sustain, either through maintaining, innovating or disrupting, calls for an understanding of the leader’s psychological frame that itself must undergo adaptive changes and frequent re-orientation.
THE PROGRAM ‘THE LEADING FRAME’ MAKES EXPLICIT THE
COGNITIVE, AFFECTIVE AND BEHAVIOURAL ASPECTS
OF THE LEADER’S MINDSET, RECREATES NEW PATHWAYS AND
ACCOMPLISHES THE FOLLOWING:
COST OF NOT ACTIVELY DEVELOPING EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP
Lack of rapid adaptability to market changes: Unable to innovate/disrupt.
A controlling narcissistic mindset: Firms can get blindsided.
Impoverished leadership cistern: A one style fits all approach.
Succession planning drought: Firms winging it with only organic and core skills.
Dearth of leaders: Swift business expansions are not adequately fuelled.
Conflict, Employee Dissension, Stagnation, Staff attrition: Erosion of 'good place to work for'.
Lack of employee ownership: Extensive supervision and micromanagement
