One of the important aspect of leadership is to provide direction to his/her team. A leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way!!
We all have studied the concepts of speed and velocity in school.
Speed describes how fast an object is moving whereas Velocity gives both how fast and in what direction the object is moving.
If a car is said to travel at 50 km/h, its speed has been specified. However, if the car is said to move at 50 km/h to the east, its velocity has now been specified. How is this linked to Directional Leadership? Is leadership to do with direction and management to do with speed? Is speed more important than direction while managing teams?
Most of the organizations/industries describe themselves as fast paced and not velocity paced! Many leaders take pride in describing themselves as action leaders and not Velocity Leaders!! In order to be successful an organization needs to focus both on direction as well as speed. Leaders tend to push their teams towards achieving results without sharing the bigger picture. If a leader wants to be an effective VELOCITY Leader, one needs to follow CARE
A VELOCITY leader will not only provide direction and speed to his/her team towards shared vision and goals but will also promote healthy spirit of competition. He will also facilitate sharing and help clear hostility.
As leaders,lets encourage collaboration in our teams and build Velocity Culture by becoming Velocity Leaders!!
