This is the second of a 2-part presentation in which Jeremy Tozer presents a clear strategic role for HR in enabling the creation of the ACE conditions for organizational success —Ability, Clarity, Environment—which result in culture, business performance and reputation.
In Part 1 Jeremy examined the role of HR as leadership and organization design subject matter experts in defining an organizational leadership philosophy to underpin L&D, OD and wider HR activity which:
· Overcomes the VUCA challenges of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
· Views change, learning and innovation as part and parcel of every-day leadership life, rather than a specific initiative to change from one defined, static state to another defined, static state —a dynamic approach to leading people.
· Develops and sustains organizational leadership capacity as the primary source of strategic competitive advantage.
· Enables effective development and execution of business strategy and the leadership of change and transformation. This includes embedding the systemic and dynamic means of ensuring both work alignment and people engagement through concurrent ‘clarity-creating process’ and ‘social process’.
· Integrates the leadership structure up, down and across organizations and across national and cultural boundaries.
· Defines leadership in terms of skill and knowledge, behaviour and attitude, and ‘intellectual firepower’ to match the complexity of work undertaken.
In Part 2, Jeremy will open with a quick summary of Part 1, and then examine a proven approach to developing this form of collective leadership capability, an approach which also concurrently develops individual leadership behaviour and emotional intelligence —an approach which is guaranteed to more than pay for itself with a measurable financial return on investment.
This will be illustrated with detailed and ROI quantified case studies from Cisco, and consulting assignments from across the USA, Asia, Europe and Australasia with other clients such as ABN AMRO, Pfizer, Philips and MCI.
