|The Leadership Zone Model |
December 15, 2015
In a 4-page report by Craig Perrin, he studied 42 leadership practices to come with 6 zones to create a new model for effective leadership. His conclusions from the study resulted in these six (6) Leadership Zones:
1. Reflection = Assess motives, beliefs, attitudes, and actions.
2. Society = Apply principles to balance individual and group well-being.
3. Diversity = Respect and leverage differences.
4. Ingenuity = Offer and execute practical ideas to create a climate in which innovation can thrive.
5. People = Connect with others on the human level
6. Business = Develop strategies and guide effort toward predicted results.
To be successful leaders must navigate the 6 zones because according to Perrin, success today involves the following five Business Challenges:
- “More complex problems demand greater reflection.
- Sustainable long-term strategy must have a positive impact on society.
- Large-scale efforts need to leverage diversity in all its forms.
- Ingenuity drives innovation, which sharpens a competitive edge.
- Motivating people must involve their emotions as well as their minds.”
