Core Leadership vs. Adaptive Leadership
Great leaders execute what is essential today and adapt to new opportunities in the future which means they have no problem shooting the sacred cows. Adaptive leaders have a high level of emotional intelligence, and they understand how to communicate. They are constantly evolving and work to not only develop themselves but their entire team.
Core leaders put a process in place and go forward. When they find a strategy that worked once, they tend to do the same thing over and over again expecting growth. “It worked well for us five years ago…” “That’s how we’ve always done it.” More often than not, this kind of thinking eventually leads to decline.
