Happy bank holiday to you if you’re in England and if you’re not, here’s hoping you’ve had a great start to your work week.
Taking off from my last post, I did mention that I was going to talk more about what it means for a leader to have S.A.L.T. qualities (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, click on the post: seasoned leadership, that should bring you up to speed with this post)
In simple terms, having S.A.L.T. qualities mean: having the distinctive attributes that improve leadership performance and provide leadership preservation. These two factors – performance and preservation – are extremely important for leadership success.
Leadership comes with the responsibility of functionality which includes:
– Proper and adequate execution of tasks
– Efficiency in achieving desired results and
– Accomplishment of projects, goals, etc
This responsibility to function depends hugely on the performance factor.
The preservation factor on the other hand is the very existence of your leadership; it is what makes your leadership thrive and it plays a huge role in your power of influence as a leader. Without the preservation factor, your whole reputation – including that of your organisation – would be in jeopardy.
In my next post, we’ll be looking more at what I call the 2P features of leadership – Performance and Preservation.
Lead right and live light,
