Basic leadership development orientation

The ANLP approach to leadership training and development assumes that:

  • Leadership is a body of orientations, attitudes and behaviours that can be acquired
  • Leadership is not related to a position – leaders lead from where they stand
  • Managerial-leadership, a combination of management and especially leadership orientations, attitudes, skills and behaviours is an important orientation to foster
  • Integrity and trust forms the basis of all relationships
  • The result of leadership to make team members (organisation) successful
  • Leaders have the responsibility to grow more leaders
  • Leaders have the ability to change and grow continuously and to unleash their own and others’ potential
  • Leaders have the  commitment to serve and to have purposes beyond self interest
  • Leaders generate energy and focus team members’ energy to realise a vision
  • The resolve of leaders and followers to find purpose and  meaning in what they do
  • Leaders create an environment of which people want to be part of (are committed to) and not just work for (be involved) in the team/organization
  • Leading and managing change interventions successfully is an essential competence in Africa
