There is no single handbook or pathway to developing effective leadership skills. Every year, hundreds of books on leadership are written. These are generally a collection of rules, habits, core skills, routines, the do’s and don’ts to follow, build or drop.
So there are clearly many differing and sometimes contradictory paths to follow in establishing and developing those essential leadership skills.
At Questline, our philosophy and approach puts the leader at the heart of the programme. We do not only teach or instruct; our development packages will guide and create the space for leaders to experience and uncover what those leadership skills are in their own unique world and circumstances.
We believe the key to developing effective leadership skills is in working with the team or leader and building from the bottom-up — stepping back and out of the status quo and routine — pressing the pause button and raising awareness – asking our leadership partners what excellence and effective leadership skills look and feel like to them.
Effective leadership lies in emotional intelligence which cannot be solely theorised or taught to fully realise the power. Emotional intelligence must be experienced, felt and reflected upon over a sustained period.
By observing, listening and pausing, perceived problem areas can actually be sign-posts to areas of greater significance which can have greater results when focus is applied.
With emotional intelligence, self-awareness and knowledge comes a renewed purpose in making sustainable changes.
We uncover hidden or under-used personal and team strengths by not simply focussing upon the ‘easy’ perceived weaknesses. By using strengths, values, habits and key leadership skills already inherent in our leaders, the skills and habits can thrive as a natural progression as opposed to a full reboot and re-training.
At Questline we also know that the development of leadership skills and the growth in emotional intelligence can be much more impactful if the journey is shared with like-minded peers as well as an expert coach and facilitator. We believe in the power of effective leadership through other leaders. Our approach throughout our development packages encourage collaborative leadership, collaborative thinking and experiential learning, with challenge and support from like-minded peers as well as an expert facilitator.
At Questline, we create and curate the time and space for our partners with expert coaches and facilitators. This accountability ensures the ‘axe can be sharpened whilst still chopping the firewood’.
Our coaches and facilitators are experts in guiding leaders through developing leadership skills and our programmes are designed to re-define what effective leadership means to them, focussing upon the art of leadership — the emotional intelligence which will enhance the leadership experience for our partners, their team and organisations.
