Exploring the Skills of Leadership

Introducing Skills

“Having the right people, in the right places, doing the right things, for the right reasons requires the right skills and abilities”.

Getting the right skills in the right places

One of the three dimensions of the Leadership3  challenge is the need to build both capacity (of the institution) and capability (of those who work within the institution) considering this from the ‘known’ to the ‘unknown’ levels of capacity and capability.  This supports the second dimension which is answering the leadership challenge on the basis of identifying the challenge, again taking account of both the unknown challenges as well as those which are known.  The third dimension is the leadership style ranging from individual, through to distributed within the institution and, ultimately shared across networks.  The development of leadership skills is therefore critical to the achievement of the institutional core purpose and values in equal measure to the building of institutional capacity through systems and structures.
