Leadership Coaching Tip

Russ Volckmann

An implication of leadership system evolution being dependent on other sets of relationships is significant. When coaching executives who are struggling with leadership system change, direct their attention to the issues of self-management, attunement and engagement. These are where the leverage for changing the dynamics of leadership system evolution may be found.
And it is important to remember that the leadership system does not exist in a vacuum. Environmental factors (market, customers, investors, employees) also impact the capacity of the system to evolve. Within the leadership system this must begin at the level of strategic/business objectives and address each of the levels of the holarchy. To engage the dynamics of larger system change means to be operating at the enterprise level of leadership. Even there, the leadership system requirements continue to be active.
