The ‘4 Es’ and values of leadership
Envision: Having a vision then developing a plan
Enable: Creating systems and processes for action
Empower: Letting people achieve the vision
Energize: Motivating, selling and simplifying
Values: Deeply held values and principles provide the road map for the way we lead and the way other people respond to us.
- Envision - Innovate fast
- Enable - Connect the knowledge
- Empower - Teach leadership
- Energize - Facilitate
All routed in a 100% congruent value system
Envision the change: If you can’t innovate fast, you can’t lead
Empower the change: If you can't connect people, you can’t lead
Empower the change: If you can’t teach, you can’t lead
Empower the change: If you can’t facilitate, you can’t lead
Thanks to globalization, we are in a new paradigm of society that requires new ways of thinking and acting. We therefore need new perspectives to the concept of leadership as individuals and as a nation.
