Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something
you want done because he wants to do it.

Leadership Development

The information age and associated globalization continue to fuel market turbulence.  

The rate of change is accelerating; organizations must adapt quickly to capitalize on opportunities or simply to survive. Rapid adaptation presents myriad issues and requires 21st Century tools, thinking and skills, particularly at the senior leadership level.

Manz and Simms coined the term Superleadership in their book of the same name; they defined it as leading others to lead themselves. Senior management's role will continue to evolve with even more emphasis being placed on the ability to acquire and cultivate the talent necessary to achieve aggressive corporate objectives.

A shift is also occurring deeper in the organization as more individuals are required to exhibit leadership characteristics formerly required only of top-level leaders. Great organizations and great leadership are inexorably connected. Cultivating and leveraging the talents of the organization is unquestionably a leadership job.

Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can't be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.
                                                                       ~ Lee Iacocca

Superior leadership requires leaders to think broadly and see clearly, motivate and influence others, and act with passion and integrity. There is no silver bullet technique or magical 5-day seminar that can make a leader. Leadership is learned and improved within the context of everyday leading. It is an inside-out process that involves learning how to learn from one's own observations and experience and those of others.

Positive Impact works with organizations to help leaders hone their personal talents while developing more resilient organizations – organizations that are poised to adapt and capitalize on the many opportunities emerging from the turbulence of today's business environment.
