The New Leader

I am often asked what the NEW LEADER will look like and like most people I initially look at the skills and technical ability that are required to exist in the future.

Although these skills and abilities are important, what will really set NEW Leaders and NEW  organisations apart is not WHAT they look like, but WHO they are and WHY they exist.

In other words, it will be leaders who have developed both skills and technical ability but have also focused on developing the qualities that will build Trust and Respect.

Qualities Leadership is now the standard and not to work on the qualities that make us exceptional means that our leadership journey will be a constant struggle.

Skills can be taught – but it is the qualities of a person or a leader that sets them apart from the pack. It is having our DNA reset to see success as more than just the gathering of things.

So what will the NEW leader look like?

Well sorry to disappoint, but they will look exactly the same as the OLD leader except for the fact that they understand the need to continually develop personally and both adapt and embrace the change happening around them.

They will be people with a strong understanding of their purpose and people that take on the mantle to lead and not just follow.

In fact, they will be people just like YOU and ME!

So, rather than keep wondering what the NEW leader will look like, let’s create the template and start to become one.

WE are the NEW leaders, so let’s embrace it and lead the way!

Feature Program
Shake It Up - Are you prepared to get rid of the systems that are not working and shake them up?

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. We know that this is right so, why do we continue to do it?

For leaders to be able to lead in this new landscape and for organisations to build sustainable futures, we must Shake It Up!

What people are saying about Proteus Programs:

“The progam was just the right length, with plenty of hints and tips and thought provoking ideas, along with some great 'stories' to take back to work and get started on some new initiatives.”
Lee Jones, Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator

“A chance to take a step back from the day and take a look at what you are doing within your business, and consider wheter it is really working for you.”
Danielle Carr, Alinta Servco

“The program was very useful and positive for leaders. Very inspiring and I took away a few strategies to set in my workplace. Just love attending as it inspires me and I feel very revved up and positive when I leave. Presenters were energising and adapted to the group and technology.”
Michelle Davey, Department of Health and Human Services.

“Awareness of the modern world and this is constantly evolving, we need to evolve to the changing needs in order to stay relevant. Sometimes keeping it simple is the best and always be adapting to the changing environment NOW not later.”
