In reflecting on 21st century leadership models a colleague (Kathryn Hodgson) and myself sat down to brainstorm the key dimensions of leadership. Our notion of leadership at the time was not restricted to adult leadership, it was also encompassing of student leadership. During the synthesis we arrived at 6 headings (Change agent, Big picture, Communicator, Nurturing talent in others, Decision maker, Continuous learner). The next challenging step was to create a tool to stimulate reflection and trigger shift in leadership effectiveness. Key indicators were then described to give clarity to emergent, shallow deep and profound level of leadership under each heading. The idea was to create a continuum not a limiting matrix that tends to box individuals.
We are keen to receive feedback - any comments greatly received.
