What is Organizational Leadership?

Organizational leadership involves having the right combination of skills and abilities that can be applied to make an organization more efficient and effective. Organizational leadership skills range from understanding data-driven decision-making to communicating well and setting proper expectations.

Characteristics of strong organizational leaders include:

  • The ability to plan, organize, control, coach and delegate
  • Communicating well and holding themselves responsible
  • Providing motivation and resolving conflicts effectively
  • Setting expectations and continuously evolving
  • Collaborating and becoming part of the system (leaders do not act alone)
  • The ability to create and articulate a clear vision for the team or organization
  • The ability to establish a connection with a team and individual members

Fortunately, leadership is something that can be learned. While there are many types of leadership styles, using them effectively requires knowing yourself, understanding team dynamics, putting theories into practice, remaining flexible and evolving to meet the needs of a situation.
