Generation Leadership > Leadership Skills: Wisdom Introduction | Diva Toolbox

[Diva Toolbox] Today, CEOs and leaders are continually challenged to make decisions with insufficient information.  Their goal and hope is for their decisions to be both successful and enduring.  The most astute learners among these use the decisions that do not succeed as conscious training tools for their companies, countries and themselves.  Success from their failures then becomes the personal and organizational enrichment gained in the combination of experience, perspective, discernment, character growth, and intuition.  Over time, this leads some leaders to wisdom.  Leaders with wisdom are and have always been in high demand and are in chronically short supply today.  Wisdom is that holy grail of skills that leaders unconsciously and sometimes consciously strive for in each decision they make.

[Ivey Business Journal] Developing Leadership Character - Ivey Business Journal: We have documented previously the types of knowledge, skills, understanding and judgment that leaders need, grouping them into four competencies - strategic, business, organizational and people[1].  Underpinning these competencies is general intellect (see Figure 1).  We have also talked elsewhere about the importance of leaders having the commitment to lead and the problems that are caused when people in leadership roles no longer want to do the hard work of leadership and become disengaged from what is happening in the organization, while they still enjoy the status, privileges and perks of office.  In this article, we want to focus on leadership character, not because it is necessarily more important than competencies and commitment, but because it is the most difficult to define, measure, assess and develop.  Our intent is to define those dimensions of leadership character that are most important in today’s rapidly changing and turbulent business environment, and suggest how character can be developed.
