Challenge 4: Leading Effectively
Successful leadership starts here
Leading effectively is no easy task and is definitely not a wide-spread craft. Hierarchies, goals and plans usually restrict freedom of design in leading a group of people down a narrow path. However, at the same time the team consists of individuals, each of whom have their own specific knowledge, abilities and personalities.
These individual qualities and characteristics must be brought together in order to achieve successful teamwork. Moreover, the leader must also bring their knowledge, abilities and personality to the table. The task grows even more complex when team constellations change often. We suggest that effectuation should be used as an additional tool for successful leadership.
