The organization I work for came up with a set of principles to guide the organization in the area of leadership. We all know that successful project managers are effective leaders.
Leaders are charged with transforming our organization into a more flexible, responsive and efficient high performing organization by fostering a climate which will encourage active involvement by all:
a. Instill the culture of high performance through all in our community. (Accountability)
b. Share my understanding and assist others to elevate their understanding of our commonly held leadership philosophy. (Cooperation and Teamwork)
c. Continually seek and remain open to new possibilities (Innovation)
d. Work to improve the quality of life of our community through collaboration. (Trust and Integrity)
e. Actively pursue the realization of our collective vision and be held accountable for our actions and leadership in shaping our future. (Clarity of Direction)
f. Embrace confronting the unsaid in our conversations. While maintaining a bias for action, we acknowledge the need for patience as we work to improve our performance (Honesty and Integrity)
g. Value a sense of urgency and maintain a focus on achieving results at the pace possible rather than the pace expected. (Effectiveness)
h. Encourage the celebration of our results. (Rewards and Recognition)
i. Support and create talent networks that value and celebrate diversity with a holistic view that leads us to results. (Cooperation and Teamwork)
j. Empower and mentor all to be innovative and take risks. (Inspiration and Empowerment)
k. Be fearless in the pursuit of our vision. (Clarity of Direction)
Teamwork, Common Goals, and Leadership at all levels will result in success.
