The 4 E’s of Leadership Presented by Regina Lawson, Dana Vierck, and Sue Hawes Based on a presentation by leader-values.com 2009 International Convention Indianapolis, IN
Leadership depends on • Having a unique vision • Making strategic choices • Finding the right tools and people for the job • Designing and enabling an organization to get it done
Unique Role of the Leader • Provide energy and commitment to see the job through • Ensuring execution is perfect • Listening and making a real “connect” with others
The 4 E’s • Envision • Enable • Empower • Energize
Simple Set of Fundamental Truths • Leaders always create (and need) change • Leaders always create (and need) followers • Leaders have a rock-solid value system, which is congruent with their followers
Without a need for change, leadership is meaningless. Leadership is a practical activity with a specific goal. Leaders and Change
Leaders and Followers • Leaders can’t do it alone! • It is the job of the leaders to encourage people to get things done. • Leadership varies by situation. • Everyone can train, develop and enhance their leadership skills.
Leaders and Values • Must have a thorough understanding of the follower’s needs, aspirations, and concerns • Must understand and then communicate their own value system • Balance and synchronization are needed with the leaders, members, community members, etc.
Ideas • A thought to be presented as a suggestion • A thought about or mental picture of something such as a future or possible event • A realization of a possible way of doing something or of something to be done
Values • The accepted principles of standards of a group of individual • Ideas lead to values eventually, if they are big enough • Ideas motivate people, but values tie them together
Our Leadership Definition “Leadership is the energetic process of getting other people fully and willingly committed to a new and sustainable course of action, to meet commonly agreed objectives whilst having commonly held values”
Back to The 4 E’s of Leadership Let’s look at these in terms of operational parameters and organizational issues
Envision • Starts with vision, then developing a plan to achieve it • Based on assessment, as well as intuition, hope, and fear • Must take culture of organization into account to be successful
Enable • Decide what tools, technologies, or methods will be used to enable the objectives • Decide if the right processes, structure, people, and skills are in place • Remember that leadership is the key. Serendipity and chaos are not usually enablers, except for the briefest moments
Empower • There is a “deal” between the leader and the followers – a contract for success • Both are given mutual freedom and are held mutually accountable • “You deliver this, and I deliver that. You will get more space, the better you do. The more I meet your needs, the stronger Leadership position I will be in. Together we will better be able to accelerate the changes we have agreed to make.”
Energize! • The leader must energize the organization to act, but this “energizing” step is also very personal to each member • Members will most likely feel energized by a sense of “winning” and achieving a sense of personal success and satisfaction • The more energy the team generates, the more energy the leader has – it’s a virtuous circle of reinforcement!
