How we lead organisations is changing, our people expect a modern day informal leader which is very different to what we have been used to. Leading with your head and heart came to the forefront during COVID and now in this post COVID world it is expected that this is how we will lead. In her book Head & Heart: The Art of Modern Leadership Dr Kirstin Ferguson AM writes that leadership is simply a series of moments and every moment gives you the opportunity to leave a positive legacy for those you lead Therefore we are all leaders and I love this paradigm shift – we no longer need to have a title to be seen as the leader. Authentic leadership is the currency that is in play today, those leaders who have a growth mindset, are self aware and have an informal informal style are being seen as the modern leaders. A modern leader doesn’t feel they need to have all the answers, they are not perfect, they make mistakes and they know when they need to lead with their hearts and when to lead with their heads. In her book Ferguson writes about how today we seek leaders who understand their limitations, have the strength to be vulnerable, they are humble, courageous, curious, value feedback and know that they will always be working on how to be the best leader they possibly can.
