Following yesterday’s post asking you about your model for leadership, you might wonder mine.
I looked at my paper from the business school leadership class, but my model has evolved so much from then — the beginning of my even asking the questions — I don’t see value in posting it.
Elements of my leadership model
Since then I’ve developed my Model of the human emotional system, which I’ve found tremendously useful in motivation, understanding, and leading others and myself, so I consider it an essential and prominent part of my model for leadership.
Even that Model I’ve built on, for example how it interacts with the rest of you and how to use it (the Method).
I also like Columbia’s modeling leadership as six pillars, or competencies, on a foundation of emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
A full-fledged, self-contained, coherent model for leadership
So I tend to think I have a fairly well-formed general-purpose model for leadership. But I confess I haven’t expanded from the Model and Method and other pieces to a full-fledged coherent model for leadership. The parts above make for excellent parts, but I think I’ll benefit from creating a full-fledged, self-contained, coherent model.
Readers: please hold me accountable.
