How to go from the juxtaposition of individuals or a simple membership group to a genuine, even excellent team? How can you foster cooperation, cohesion and collective intelligence to achieve your transformation objectives?
These are the delicate missions of a leader whose “mysterious paradox”, as Pierre-Yves Gomez explains, is to be “a person so singular that he or she is a product of the collective”.
So what are the characteristics of such unusual people?
What makes the difference in a leader is not only his operational capacity to lead a structure, but above all his humanity -authentic- that invests in the relationship and his charisma that unites people.
There are no magic recipes to become an effective and virtuous leader, but here are a few keys in my opinion:
- To rely on collective intelligence which allows co-creativity, team cohesionand motivation.
- To give a central place to emotions in your management
- To choose trust as a driving force that generates empowerment
- To start by managing yourself
