Can we develop a process for leadership?

Yesterday's discussion led me to reflect on whether it would be possible to actually formulate a process for assuming leadership that could encapsulate most of our reflections in class over the past two weeks. This does make assumptions of the nature of the task and of its relative simplicity and/or complexity however. However, I believe the idea itself can be developed with discussion among people. Comments and thoughts welcomed.

  • understanding the task

  • the group can be utilised to augment learning of the task

  • developing a vision

  • understanding the team

  • team building*

  • delegation of tasks

  • monitoring or reviewing progress

  • actively engaging team members

  • updating goals and vision in tune with progress

  • repeat

*Depends on the situation. For long term projects, team building exercises can be crucial in my opinion and should be practiced. A camaraderie or a chemistry and trust between team members could be crucial to a successful outcome in the long run.
