Effective #FutureFit leadership optimises resources and activates, or even stretches and EXPANDS, the full potential of people, teamwork, and organisational culture. It also makes sure that leaders are being developed within the lower organisational strata on every level.
The LIMITLESS Leadership acronym covers the basic vital aspects of effective High Performance leadership required to create #FutureFit People, Teams, and organisations, that thrive, in today’s VUCA world of work.
Leadership is about creating what could be, should be, can be, and will be. Leadership is about disruption of the status quo. Leadership is the front-edge of the wedge that creates more meaning, mastery, movement and momentum.
Leadership enables magic to happen, as passionate people collaborate to create extraordinary RESULTS, in a manner that is human positive.
Limitless leadership is about honouring people, planet and profits, and creating exponential impacts and results that matter, in a sustainable, and regenerative context.
Limitless leaders are Conscious, Courageous, agile, and adaptive, able to lead their people and teams in a rapidly changing world. The rules of the game are changing fast and furiously.
The LIMITLESS Leader Model is described below.
Learning and Listening
First of all leadership is about learning and listening deeply. Leaders are readers. All leaders have to learn to see with new eyes, hear with open ears, to see new possibilities and potential, in the existing business landscape.
In the VUCA world, leaders have to learn to handle and assimilate masses of complex signals and information.
From this they must learn what is important and what is not. They must learn to simplify and distill the deluge of information into simple communicable messages and formats, so that staff at the lower levels can quickly understand, and act on the information.
Informed & Integrity
Successful leaders are always informed. They are informed about what’s happening within the organisation. They are informed about challenges, constraints and competitive issues. Leaders stay informed about the effective and functional performance constraints and capacities of their people, teams, management and organisational potential.
Effective leaders also ensure that they are informed about matters beyond their organisation, into the market, and the larger business landscape. Leaders look forwards to stay informed of potential threats, and new opportunities, from multiple directions. They do this with Integrity and authenticity as this is the foundation of their credibility and influence.
Meaningful & Masterful
If you’re going to activate, and retain, the full potential of your staff, it is very clear from the low engagement numbers at the workplace content and process needs to be revised.
Managing miserable and unmotivated staff we have become highly disengaged is a problem that most managers or leaders are unable to solve. It is only with more meaning that we can begin to get our people to be more excited about what is happening in the workplace and the world of work.
Leadership also about mastery of self and the team… a constant focus on growing awareness, consciousness, capacity and commitment
Incremental & Inspiring
The concept of “nibble knowledge” is fast being applied into the workplace where staff are able to learn regular and incrementally valuable nibbles or bits of knowledge that are directly relevant to their present and prevailing situation, circumstances and challenges.
Trusted & Truthful
All you have to do is look at the political landscape to see how the digital world is laying bare the atrocities and inconsistencies of leaders across the globe for all to see and judge. For a leader to remain credible and keep team cohesion continuing, qualities and character of trustworthy and truthful are non-negotiable.
Followers will only tolerate low integrity, deceit, lies and greedership for so long, before there is a revolution in mindset, attitude and commitment. Dis-engagement is the consequence.
Love and Legacy
Gone are the days of slavery for many, but not all people. And it’s about time too. Limitless leaders learn to bring love into workplace. To create a place where people love to come to work. To create work that people love to do. To create relationships with people can respect and love another human being enough to see them as equal.
We have come a distance from the master-and-slave mindset, and the top down command and control archaic attitudes, that were handed down from the fighting and dominating mindset.
If we’re going to get the best staff performance, and support the thriving and well-being of people, planet and profit, to create long-term sustainable success, we are going to have to learn to bring the softer skills into the workplace.
This starts with love. It starts with loving and respecting yourself first. And from there we can start to begin to build real robust relevant respectful relationships that create a #FuturFit Revolutionary Workplace that benefits all.
Empowered to Think, Decide, and Act
The competition and demand for high-performance and high speed service has relentlessly been pressurised and squeezed down to just seconds.
Where we used to wait weeks for letters to be delivered and to get responses, we now get irritated when we don’t get a response to an email, whatsapp, SMS or any digital communication in moments.
We have to firstly choose the right people with the right mindset that fit your culture. Then we have to train and up skill them on the products or services.
And then you have to up skill them on how to think, decide and act, in all sorts of high pressure situations and circumstances. Because, no longer can leaders and managers be at the front line every second, for every decision, for every problem.
We have to empower people to think clearly and smartly, to decide and take action in a way that ensures service excellence and business sanity. People have to be empowered to be creative and innovative in the way they solve problems, service clients create new potential for revenue and relevant offerings.
For many leaders this is a scary step…but a vital one if you’re going to create high-performance people, teamwork, leadership and culture.
From climate change to carbon overload, to oxygen depletion, to water shortages, to ocean acidification, to fishery depletion, and all of those things that go to sustain life on this fragile blue marble we call home.
With politicians posturing and businesses profiteering, who will stand up and speak for Mother Earth?
Who will think sanely and secure the future for our future generations? Who will be the ones to say no more wasting of our natural resources? Who will be the one to say this insanity must stop?
Will it be you that moves from greedership to true leadership?
Will it be you that sensitises their staff and teams to the threats we post to ourselves and this fragile planet? Will it be you that innovates, gets creative,., with how we can be more conscious and caring moving forward sustainably.
If not you, then who? For surely your and my children will look back and ask where were the leaders? What were they thinking? Did they nor care about our Future?
Strengths Based Synergy
Time is too short to worry about fixing weaknesses because it focuses on the past, and we waste energy with worries about weakness.
If we are smart and act swiftly and intelligently will focus on our strengths. We will collaborate and communicate connect and create by putting our strengths together. And build real teamworking
For only in this way will we begin to understand how interdependent we are upon each other. We need each other. We need each other’s strengths. We need each other’s buy in to creating a brighter and more sustainable and inclusive future.
Increasing Employee Life Time Value
– we just need LIMITLESS LEADERSLeaders Optimise ELTV (Employee Life Time Value) to the Organisation and Team.
Employee experience and employee engagement is vital for higher performance, and not just about feeling good at work.
Extensive research, and experience, shows links between positive employee experience and; retention, discretionary effort, and work performance.
The reality is that a very small percentage of people are real leaders. And if left to their own devices many people will avoid stepping up, taking the risks, taking the responsibility, and creating the desired results.
The world desperately needs real leaders. We need leaders of limitless hope, possibility, potential, and resilience. We need leaders of limitless love, care and compassion.
We need leaders who are limitless in their dedication, and commitment, to gathering up everybody, building better people, teamworking, collaboration, guiding us along an adventure, to a better, brighter, more sustainable future, that has positive value for ALL of us
. And my hope is that one of those limitless leaders, is you!
