What it takes to lead at the senior-most levels

by The 100 Companies

As leaders become more senior in their organization, they are called upon to demonstrate competencies that are increasingly less technical and, instead, more personal in nature. Those qualities include:

• Personal – self-awareness, self-management, integrity and authenticity.

• Relational – interpersonal skills, effective communication and the ability to inspire and influence.

• Organizational – political savvy, diplomacy, organizational awareness and tolerance for change and uncertainty.

It is important to develop skills and personality traits to perceive, interpret and respond to the complexity that is inherent in leadership. Let’s dive deeper during my “Fireside Chat with Val” session at the New Orleans Women’s Leadership Conference on March 18.
