One of the biggest leadership questions is “How do I bring out the best in others?”. “How to bring out the best in those for whom I had the responsibility for leading.”
It’s a good question to be asking!
I want to share briefly with you a theory that is known as Invitational Leadership. Invitational theory suggests that there are three assumptions that leaders need to make; and the responsibility that comes with that.
1. There is a best in everybody
2. Everybody has a valid contribution to make
3. Everybody would rather make that contribution than not
Your role as a leader is to create an environment that invites the best in others.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? Yet it’s actually not that simple. It is a great framework to think about.
Chat to usif you would like one of our team to give you more information on our Leadership Workshops or Keynote presentations that we offer that addresses Invitational Leadership.
