Leadership development is not just for private companies. The need for leadership development is also present in public institutions that organize social and societal life.
The image of the leader and leadership is often associated with multinational corporations and leaders of large teams. This is only part of the equation. Indeed, our world is changing: we work more and more independently, transversally. We keep increasing the number of small-scale projects and collaborations of all kinds. In these situations, we are asked to very quickly take our place in a project, to demonstrate our qualities as visionary and strategist, and to motivate the people involved in the project. Acquiring and developing leadership skills is invaluable when you want to move these types of associations forward.
Leaders are key components of organizations of all sizes.
In small and medium-sized organizations, the leader is the one who inspires. He or she is usually the creator or co-creator of the organization’s vision and missions. He is closest to his customers, his products or services, and his teams.
Within larger structures, the leader is the one who generally inspires, the ‘translator’ of the global strategy into vision and mission for his/her organization, department or team.
In both cases, the leader is a key element in the continuity of the company and its adaptation to its ecosystem.
