With over 20 years of experience helping CEOs and their teams at companies such as Starbucks, Facebook, JetBlue, Hyatt, and IBM lead their organizations to greatness, we here at SYPartners (the company that makes Leadfully) know a thing or two about leadership.
Now, we’re channeling everything we know into the Leadfully platform, so that emerging leaders like you can tap into that bank of knowledge, and put it to work immediately.
Time and time again, we’ve seen that leaders with the following capabilities excel at leading their teams into the unknown:
The ability to see possibilities where others see problems.
Great leaders envision a potential future, instead of simply managing what’s known. They see and describe possibilities up ahead to enlist people’s faith and enthusiasm. They reframe the current state to identify a more vibrant future state.
The ability to imagine and make solutions that create new value.
Great leaders see things from a new perspective, they get out of their heads, and make things. They imagine a next step and bravely prototype a way forward — even if the path isn’t clear, or the data doesn’t illuminate one.
The ability to build belief and inspire action.
Great leaders engage their teams authentically, honestly, and constantly, using storytelling to make sense of the moment the organization is in, build belief in them, their fellow leaders, and their strategy.
The ability to activate the best in others.
Great leaders tap into their employees’ passions, quirks, dormant skills, highest aspirations — as a powerful asset. They create the conditions for everyone to be their best selves, and design the rituals, spaces, practices, and permission that help people bring their full set of talents to bear.
