“An energizing, impactful leader is someone who wants to impact their world with a specific purpose and strategic goals. They know they cannot achieve these goals by themselves, and they need to build energy in others and have people that are willing to follow them. They create energy through the impact of their leadership. An energizing, impactful leader is someone who has a vision for achieving goals and will lead others to achieve those goals.”
We live in extraordinary times in the middle of a COVID-19 Pandemic resulting in social distancing. We are witnessing an acceleration of trends in the use of technology and working virtually. Independent of the pandemic, advances in technology and education give us a great opportunity to solve problems that in the past have seem to be unsolvable. Technology has led to levels of connectivity that could only be dreamed of only a few years ago and we now have access to people’s ideas, experiences and skills from across the world. Now more than ever we need people to step up and effectively lead. Effective leaders have a big impact on the world by delivering on strategic goals and actions and creating positive energy with colleagues and collaborators. They are what I call - Energizing, Impactful Leaders (EILs).
If a leader fails to create energy in an organization and does not deliver on their strategic goals, then they can be described as a “disengaged failure”. If a leader does deliver but is low in energy, the organization may deliver in the short-term but there is a risk that people are disengaged and the top talent may leave. I describe this as “unsustainable success”. If the creates high energy created by a leader but does not deliver on goals, this is a” dynamic underachievement” organization. Finally, the aim of leadership is high on energy and high on delivery, this is “energizing, impactful leadership”.
