Truly great leaders work to create a better future, but what makes them stand out is their ability to keep going in the face of overwhelming odds. Somehow, great leaders are able to summon a deep strength to go on when many others would simply give up.

Here at Iclif, we call this strength ‘Leadership Energy’. It is the inherent drive to keep going, and it cannot be taught or feigned. Leadership energy must be self-discovered though deep reflection; through clarifying your intrinsic values, identifying your life-purpose, and developing the power of your mind.

The rewards are immense: discovering your unique leadership energy gives you the power to transform yourself, your organisation, and your legacy.

Leadership Energy – It’s what keeps great leaders from giving up

  • Leadership is not a title or position to command or direct a group
  • Leadership is about creating change for a better future
  • Creating change encounters huge resistance at every step
  • Through effective corporate governance, the best organisations ensure that their leadership energy remains focused on ethical, sustainable and responsible pursuits
  • There are no competencies, best practice models, or personality assessments for not giving up. Staying the course despite resistance requires deep intrinsic leadership energy
  • Such energy can neither be learned in classrooms nor automatically acquired upon promotion or appointment. It must be self-discovered
  • High Emotional Integrity (EI) is a pre-requisite to maximising one’s leadership energy. EI is having the courage to acknowledge and accept one’s deepest desires without judgment or guilt
  • After uncovering sources of their own long-lasting energy, real leaders align and maximise the energy of their people and organisations
  • Not giving up on the envisioned better future is at the heart of powerful leadership
