Jim Bolt recently wrote about balance on the Fast Company site. The article, Developing The 3-Dimensional Leader, describes the common absence of balance in leaders and the need for three dimensional leaders. As he writes, "Too many leaders today are one-dimensional, narrowly focused on business results."
Bolt's three dimensional leadership implores leaders to strike a balance between business needs, leadership, and personal needs. Here is his description of the three dimensions:
The three-dimensional framework calls for the development of an individual’s business, leadership, and personal effectiveness skills:
- Business Dimension: Mind-sets and capabilities needed to identify and address critical business challenges
- Leadership Dimension: Fully developed leadership capacity needed to lead the organization confidently into the future
- Personal Dimension: Personal effectiveness skills needed to achieve excellence, balance and ongoing renewal
This three dimensional framework perfectly depicts the balance required of quiet leaders. Please read Bolt's article.
Thanks for reading. Please lead quietly.
