Event description

Description


Event details

Good quality evidence around successful leadership styles is not common but one useful line of research emphasises the importance of good leaders evidencing both humility and drive. These qualities need to be tensioned against each other; too much ill-considered drive without humility leads to behaviours which may be self-serving and to the cost of the organisation in staff resource. Too much humility without drive may lead to an organisation which does not engage in difficult decisions necessary to develop appropriately in the face of environmental change. These qualities and the tension between them can be expressed in terms of behaviours which have an effect on others and described in terms of psychological skills underpinning those behaviours. Making use of these skills enables managers and leaders to maximise their potential and shape a more effective and efficient organisation.
