The topic of leadership interventions can be an extremely touch and go situation at the best of times. Most leaders are highly skilled and qualified individuals who are driven for results – and rightly so. But “softer” skills are needed to motivate and inspire people. These skills are equally important to achieving high level results, unfortunately they are in short supply.

Luckily, they can be learnt.

4Seeds offers one-on-one or group interventions to develop leaders to gain these vital skills and become the meaningful leaders their people need and deserve.

What is a Meaningful Leader?

Leaders are born, created and rise to the opportunity. Leaders combine their personality, beliefs and skills to inspire, trust and build confidence in their followers.

Two critical roles a leader fulfills are:

    1. Transform a company’s vision into practical goals; and
    2. Create a highly productive, united and enjoyable working environment.

Leadership is a value-based and relationship-building role in which the leader transfers personal and company values to each employee.

A meaningful leader is able to lead when necessary and follow when appropriate. In a nutshell, leaders create impactful and abundant change for their teams, companies and society.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists.
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled they will say: we did it ourselves.

Lao Tzu

What is the Meaningful Leader Programme (MLP)

MLP is a dynamic but practical leadership programme which provides existing or newly-appointed leaders with skills, knowledge and competencies to lead with confidence, effect and impact, and to motivate their staff to follow and create positive change. MLP combines theory with straightforward practical tools and techniques that are extremely powerful. In addition, case studies, discussion forums and physical exercises enrich the leadership development. Once you apply them, you will wonder how you ever managed without them.

An important focus of MLP is building self-mastery, team dynamics and company success. Combining the “I” and the “THEM” into a collaborative “US”.

The importance of leadership

The way in which a leader chooses to lead will have an effect on the company as a whole. From a project manager, all the way to the director of the business, a leader’s responsibilities should never be overlooked. A bad attitude of an egocentric leader can cause demotivation within the team, which will result in a poor work ethic which can damage the company. If people feel uncared for, they tend to stop caring themselves and it’s only a matter of how long this will take. This is why making your team leaders aware of the importance of team building is of great importance to keep everyone happy and healthy in their jobs.

In the same right, an incredibly meek leader could end up causing the system to go awry with their lack of direction and force. This certain individual can then benefit from personal executive coaching and develop a stronger sense of self and direction.
