1. Managership and Leadership both have important roles to play in the business. Because they are different we need to have a clear, shared understanding of each.
2. Leadership is the relationship between people as they seek together to achieve a shared vision/purpose.
3. Leadership is a sense of being, not doing. Knowing what to do comes from knowing how to be. Knowing how to be comes from a better understanding of the complex patterns of interaction.
4. Leadership is not limited to those in management positions. Everyone can exercise leadership within their sphere of influence. It is not a position but a personal choice.
5. Each of us is responsible for taking the initiative to develop our leadership.
6. Learning and leadership development takes place on multiple levels: individual, team and organization.
7. Leadership development must be strongly linked to business outcomes.
8. Leadership development needs to focus on giving leaders the tools to sustain successful relationships.
