Do you know what your leadership point of view is, and can you articulate and share it with the people you work with in ways that help bring out their best?
The Leadership Point of View Process (LPoV) was developed by Ken Blanchard and Madeleine Blanchard after reading Noel Tichy’s book, The Leadership Engine. The LPoV is your credo and tool for communicating with others what they need to know about you as a leader, and how they can work effectively with you.
To find your LPoV, Ken and Madeleine Blanchard suggest that you start by asking yourself these questions. Write down your answers and reflect on them. Remember, the LPoV is a a self-discovery process. It takes time. For some, it may even last a lifetime.
* Who are the leaders who are inspiring to you?
* What qualities do they have? What did they do that you found inspiring?
* Can you do these things? Do you possess these qualities? If not, can you develop them? If not, what will you do about it?
* What do you expect of yourself and others?
* What can others expect of you?
* How will you share this information with others?
You may use the process on your own or you may work with your coach. Leadership is a journey and leadership coaching can contribute to your development.
