January 2018 – Question of the Month

January 29, 2018 - By Peter Jordan, Associate, BA History, Geography and Environmental Science, BA Hons History

QUESTION OF THE MONTH: Why does Legitimate Leadership return to our company periodically (at approximately 7-year intervals)

ANSWER:  It depends on the reasons for Legitimate Leadership returning. If it is to bring newly-appointed employees on board regarding the leadership ethos, this is perfectly understandable. If it is to conduct a refresher or expose the company to new Legitimate Leadership products, this is also perfectly in order. Firstly, care and growth is not a once-off vaccination but requires constant re-enforcement; secondly, care and growth/Legitimate Leadership content is also constantly evolving.

If the reason for Legitimate Leadership returning is due to the application of the leadership concepts and tools having become rusty, misused or unused then this is of some concern. But unfortunately this does sometimes happen because:

  • Once results have improved there may be the temptation to neglect the leadership practices which contributed to the improvements in the first place.
  • Managers may forget to constantly refresh and reiterate the leadership principles. There may be a slow erosion of accountability around leadership issues.
  • Turnover in management may also lead to the Legitimate Leadership concepts being neglected or even abandoned.

Legitimate Leadership is not about attending courses but rather about living it consistently on a daily basis and making it part of the DNA of an organisation. – Peter Jordan, Associate, Legitimate Leadership.
