Individual Leaders
Leadership Teams

Leadership means constant movement – interacting, communicating, optimizing processes and developing talent. This movement’s very vivacity determines the leadership dynamics of individual executives.

It’s the drive to continuously improve the dynamics around him or her that determines an executive’s effectiveness. And it’s a leadership circle’s willingness to enhance its work & interaction dynamics that determines how far it can advance in optimizing the business.

The Dynamics of Individual Leaders

Amid the great intensity and speed of today’s corporate life – both intriguing and at times taxing – leaders clearly require high levels of positive, personal dynamics. The overall vitality in their communication and interaction strongly affect the momentum in their work environment and their business results.

Increasing one’s genuine knowledge of HOW to reach and healthily sustain more elevated levels of personal energy without burning oneself is key. So is knowing how to spread the resulting momentum effectively. This then requires a wise attuning to not only a unique leadership personality but to the particular career phase he/she is in or about to enter.

The 5 decisive pillars in a leader’s personal dynamics for which LAUDA has developed succinct tools are his/her:

  • Mental vigor
  • Positive emotionality
  • Physical stamina
    – these three determine an executive’s overall drive and vitality. How well the three interface is decisive.
  • Relationship dynamics – how does one’s own drive and style as a leader affect important others?
  • Authenticity: central to the above four pillars is the congenial genuineness of a leader, and how that matures over time.

Interaction Dynamics in Top Teams

Today’s organizations tend to hire top executives with enormous talent and proven performance records. Yet at the end of the day it is the chemistry among all board members that decides how capably their skills and assets come together for the greatest bgt of the organization.

A visibly attuned top management, largely moving along side by side impacts motivation, productivity and loyalty among all associates. A competitive 21st century leadership team has to find ways to:

  • Generate highly productive synergetic thinking and interaction between its leaders
  • It is based on e.g. positive conflict dynamics and establishes a debate culture that can make best use of multiple, smart and valid viewpoints.
  • Optimally bring together the precious talents of its individual executives.
