Leadership research and practice have received new attention in recent years following the unprecedented transformation experienced by organizations towards the end of the last millennium. Great leadership is crucial to the success of any organization. While what great leadership looks like differs from company to company, there are best practices frameworks, models, and tools that organizations could adopt to develop a blueprint for what is expected from the leaders across your organization—the leadership competencies they must possess and the behaviors they must display, to help you execute on your vision, your goals, and the culture you’re trying to build.
A leadership development framework describes what leadership should look like within an organization. It can be thought of as a set of principles that define how a manager should lead their teams, as well as the competencies and skills they should possess. When it comes to defining this leadership framework though, there’s no one-size fits all approach. Instead, this framework needs to be aligned with your strategy and the culture you’re trying to create. Well, organizations without one will have inconsistent management styles across the board. And the consequences of this can be detrimental—mistrust, lack of productivity, employee disengagement, resentment, a lack of psychological safety, and even low employee retention rates.
