Effective Leadership Series Part 2: Are you an Adaptable leader?
What does it take to be adaptable in your leadership behaviours?
The IMLD leadership model looks at 5 distinct leadership capabilities – Alignment, Awareness, Achievement, Altitude and Adaptability. Within each of these, there are 5 behavioural leadership traits,
To be an Adaptable leader, you display:
🔹 Empowerment – you give over power and authority to your team to get things done,
🔹 Interaction – you are enthusiastic with others and embrace new contacts and connections,
🔹 Adaptability – you are able or willing to change in order to suit new or variable conditions,
🔹 Influence – you have the ability to effect the character, beliefs, opinions and development of your team,
🔹 Dependability – you elicit confidence and trust from your team, peers and clients.
Adaptable leaders adjust to their surroundings for continued success. They have the ability to draw the best out of themselves and their team and elicit confidence and trust from those around them. They are true chameleons – adapting to the mood, culture and environment for success.
