New and middle managers who aspire to be true leaders and senior leaders who aim to create a leadership culture must work together to break free from the constraints that limit potential.
Leadership is often associated with guiding a team, helping individuals grow, and solving problems as they arise. But what happens when your team is already high-performing, reasonably self-sufficient, and for the most part seems to require less direct intervention?

The true test of a leader believing in their purpose often lies in their ability to persevere through challenges and uncertainty while remaining steadfast in their commitment to their purpose.
Reacting defensively should never be the default response to a team member whose question or comment might be slightly controversial. Leaders need to accept that being challenged is part of their job. By welcoming challenges, they can create an environment where creative thinking flourishes.

A call to leadership requires more than just holding a position or title. It encompasses the responsibility to inspire, motivate, and guide others towards achieving shared objectives.

Leadership is a set of qualities and behaviours that can be displayed in various contexts, regardless of whether you have direct reports or not. It’s about inspiring, guiding, and influencing others towards a common goal, and this can be achieved in many different ways.
