Do you often feel frustrated by your team?
Do you find yourself chasing after great ideas, only for them to wither and die?
If you often find your visions waylaid by burnout or negative feedback, then it is time to adopt these three strategies to raise your leadership capital.
Defined by the amount of belief people have in you, leadership capital is about persuading others to follow and invest in you.
When people “don’t see, understand, or aren’t willing to enlist” in your vision, you start to feel invisible. To gain a following, you must first establish trust and credibility.
The first factor to your success as a visionary is communication – persuasive communication across different audiences can lead to active engagement and increase your capacity as a leader.
But an organic culture goes beyond active communication.
A transformational organizational culture should be based upon four dimensions: strategic, emergent, adaptive, and empathetic.
An authoritarian and judgmental leader can cause team members to be afraid and reluctant to voice their concerns.
In order to foster co-creation, you need to learn to let go of control so you can maximize your team’s talent – the people’s collective genius.
