“The true measure of leadership is influence … nothing more, nothing less” – John C Maxwell   

Deliver Real results and implement Real improvements with our Real Leadership programme, designed to develop the personal attributes needed to build effective leadership skills with authenticity.

The role of a leader is to articulate their vision, to set the direction of travel and to inspire others to follow.

We choose to follow someone if we are attracted to their vision, if they appear to be authentic, if they believe in what they are doing, and if we are engaged and believe in it too.

When people engage with a vision and act with purpose, they perform better and organisations deliver Real results.

The Huntcliff approach to Real Leadership

At Huntcliff, Real Leadership starts with understanding who we Are not what we Do. By looking at our existing strengths and leadership attributes, and building on those, we can develop our own authentic and strong leadership style.

Traditionally, Leadership Development has focused on skills and competencies – the things that leaders Do. The problem is that a leader is only able to develop skills and competencies to a certain level and that level is determined by their own blend of attributes – who they are.

The 8 most important attributes for Leaders

The 8 most important attributes for Leaders

Some attributes are more important for leaders than others:

We all have a wide range of attributes that make us who we are and some will be stronger in us than others. There are 8 attributes that are the most important for Real Leaders.

Each attribute brings an essential ingredient to the blend that makes up our personality and most important for Leadership is Self-Awareness.

It is our awareness of the way we Are and how we Behave that allows us to understand ourselves and our impact on others.

From this understanding we can decide what attributes, behaviours and competencies we want to develop to become the Leader we want to be.

Support and Training Programmes

The Real Leader Programme is based on the ABC Model of Real Leadership and is aimed at senior and middle management teams but can also be useful for cross functional groups of leaders. The programme is tailored to suit the specific needs of the organisation and includes the following elements.

An initial Self Assessment Audit to provide an understanding of the leadership strengths of participants at the start of the programme. This will inform the tailoring of modules to the needs of the organisation and provides a benchmark to evaluate progress.
