The more time leaders spend on the team’s work — the less they leave for leading. Strategy development and coordination, organizational alignment, coaching, and other core dimensions of leading become an afterthought. The LeadershipSOPs is a breakthrough methodology and framework for leading which promotes the development of habitual systems of action (standard operating procedures) aimed at the three critical domains of leading (structuring, operating, and perfecting communities of effort).
Tyson explained that “We bring it to life when we act to engage others for the purpose of generating their will and capacity to collaborate. Sure, there’s a final objective – and it’s an important impetus – but objectives can’t be the primary focus of a leader (otherwise the ends will always justify the means). The leader’s role is to create the capacity to achieve the goal: to create the will for collaboration. At it’s core, leadership is a process of social organization, engagement and transformation which cultivates effective and sustainable communities of effort”
