Leadership Reimagined: What You Need to Know
Nationally-Recognized Community Leader and D.R.I.V.E. Method ™ Expert, Courtney Young, Calls Leaders to Move from Influence to Impact as Professional Landscape moves from Survival to Service
Courtney Young’s message is simple: If you want to be a leader today, you’re going to have to do it differently than ever before. Her signature D.R.I.V.E. Method is a step-by-step approach to do just that.
“Leaders must be intentional in how they’re managing people. If leaders are struggling, imagine the people! The Great Resignation exists because people want something different and it’s not just more money. They want a better version of their current life. Leaders must now set goals that meet the bottom line, but that support and elevate their teams along the pathways to greatness.” -Courtney Young
Here are the three primary takeaways that leaders need to know- and act on:
- Workforce Expectations Have Changed. Gone are the days when employees were only concerned with their paychecks. The last several years have served as a powerful reminder to people that there’s more to life than work. They want flexibility, freedom, visibility and compassion. If leaders rely solely on outdated tactics like pay raises and promotions, they will end up without teams to manage in the end. Leaders must be exceptional in their roles, shifting from survival to true service.
- Organizational Agility is Paramount. Never before has it been important for leaders and their organizations to have clear definitions of their own unique success, but the ability to remain nimble in their approach and to shift as necessary to not only survive- but THRIVE- in the face of adversity.
- Taking Action is the Single Biggest Advantage. We read the books. We attend the workshops. We make plans for the future. But we’re often hesitant to take action because it’s easier- and less fearful- to stay safe within our comfort zones. But circumstances can change in an instant- in our organizations, in our lives, in the world. Now is the time to take action on our plans. We already have everything we need, so if we’re feeling the pull toward change, we have to lean into it. NOW.
Employees are not the only ones using the evolving professional landscape to make big change in their lives- leaders are, too, at deep and personal levels. They have grown tired of feeling stagnant, constrained and limited in their reach. They’re awakening to the desire for growth, expansion and maximum impact.
“Current leaders didn’t get to take a break during the pandemic. They’re now in a space of needing to figure out ‘what’s next,’ taking stock of their own professional goals. Oftentimes, this means transitioning from a role of ‘doing’ into one of ‘consulting’ to maximize both their impact and their revenue.” -Courtney Young
As the world reopens and business leaders are forced to re-evaluate what their businesses will look like moving forward, we have watched as long-believed myths have been disproven and employees’ visions for their futures soar to new heights. Those leaders and organizations best able to adapt to these changes and seize this opportunity for deeper connection and alignment within their teams are the ones who will ultimately thrive when the dust settles. The message is clear: As the professional landscape moves from survival to service, the time is NOW for leaders to move from influence to impact.
