My Leader’s Compass: Publishing a Leadership Philosophy
Perry J. Martini, PhD.
Director, Executive Leadership Programs - Academy Leadership
A leader’s compass is a coherent leadership philosophy that guides actions consistent with a set of values and principles that result in predictable behavior. Followers expect their leaders to be consistent and predictable thereby creating credibility and trust. This presentation describes the importance of not only determining what leadership means as a leader, but also one’s values, operating principles, priorities, and expectations. Through introspection of these crucial aspects of leadership, effective leaders understand the importance of publishing a personal leadership philosophy. Based on the widely acclaimed book, The Leader’s Compass, this presentation focuses on the fundamentals of considering, writing and publishing a personal leadership philosophy. This introspection and process facilitates leaders to establish a course and set their internal compass resulting in greater self-knowledge, greater self-confidence and improved effectiveness as a leader.
