Some questions that can promote discussions within your department or organization:
In our organization/department, who exercises leadership?
- CEO and Executive Management Team
- Division and group-level managers
- All of the above
Leadership is exercised primarily through…
- The organizational chart
- Individual actions
- The implementation of efficient processes
Is everyone on the same page? Is there disagreement with either of the questions above? If so, promote the discussion.
Some personal questions that individuals can ask of themselves:
How do I influence?
Do My actions reflect leadership?
Leadership is the power to influence. It is not necessarily a title or position. The average person influences approximately 10,000 people during their lifetime. The question “In what way do I influence people?” is a question that can lead to self-improvement.
