How to identify a natural leader
An organisation is built on the transfer of power with one leader to another. For this leadership continuity company directors will need to zero in on the individuals that have leadership potential. This is an essential part of an organisations growth strategy.
Leaders are important to organisations and the economy; they play a transformational role in an organisation’s effort to overcome market challenges. An organisation will not be able to achieve its growth targets if it goes through a leadership vacuum at any given time. The leaders are able to push the workforce to meet goals as they themselves demonstrate commitment towards innovation and high quality products and services. They usually have the authority and credibility to make important decisions. They have completed many management training courses over the years and regularly attend leadership courses to stay current.
When you are looking to replace a leader it is best to look within your own organisation. They will understand the processes, systems, organisation structure and the work culture already in place. They will be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the organisation which will allow them to make better decisions in favour of the organisation.
A natural leader is usually the person at the centre of a group of friends; this isn’t always the case but is a good indicator. Usually a natural leader will not be trying to be a leader but will just be themselves, if they have an idea people naturally gravitate to them and follow them. Young people that are gifted leaders usually have a problem with authority; they are not good at following others. They would rather follow their own ideas as they believe they have a better way of doing things themselves.
