From The Same Song Sheet
The Red Diamond® Framework, merged with your shared vision and values, unique culture and heroic goals make up your team's song sheet
When faced with uncertainty, Entrepreneurial Leaders experiment, learn by doing, then analyse and repeat the process. They want to solve problems collaboratively, and have a restless need to explore and learn. Entrepreneurial Leaders can anticipate the need for change, so are able to adapt quickly and perform well in unpredictable environments.
Compare this proactive mindset with an "analyse, then act" leadership approach, and the difference is clear. It matters most in the face of adversity, uncertainty and scarcity, because Entrepreneurial Leaders are experts at navigating troubled waters.
These leaders organise their teams to pursue a common goal, by encouraging personal responsibility and managing change within a dynamic environment, for the benefit of the company. They always take advantage of opportunities to innovate.
“If you think you are too small to make a difference,
try sleeping in a room with a mosquito.”
— Lisa Lieberman-Wang
Entrepreneurial Leadership is not one particular trait, but rather a range of different personal attributes. These include the ability to anticipate, think strategically, be visionary and make sensible decisions while maintaining flexibility. The critically important factor is caring about their people and their company.
Entrepreneurial Leaders aim to cultivate entrepreneurial individuals and teams that fully leverage their creative potential in adding value to the business. They set goals that stretch their team's abilities and build confidence. They're respected for their values and leadership, as well as their expertise. Success is therefore not only measured in profits, but also in terms of how people feel about their work and themselves.
Entrepreneurial Leaders are made, not born. It's a muscle that can be developed over time with diligent practice. RDL will show you exactly how to become an exceptional Entrepreneurial Leader.
"Team synergy without strategy results in a waste of energy."
— Mirinda du Plessis, CEO of RDL
Entrepreneurial Leaders are - vitally - still part of the team, but they're the glue that holds everything together.
Your Soul Singing Team will only win the long game in business if they all sing from the same song sheet, using the the Red Diamond Framework, personalised with your shared values, unique culture and heroic goals.
