DEVELOPING THE MODEL
As we research what characteristics made a leader ‘Compelling’, we were perpetually guided by the evidence criteria of whether the leader was:
- achieving great results (achieving the vision and targets of the organisation)
- having a massive impact for the greater good - including the wellbeing of those around them, and
- the followers truly WANT to be in close proximity to the leader (not because of position or agenda)
We dubbed this the ‘nectar to bees’ phenomenon.
‘Modelling’ is a process of studying the structure of what creates an outcome or behaviour (at an unconscious level). It is very different to interviewing and requires a profound level of listening and observing.
