Willing to take ownership of an organization, combined with an intrinsic urge to do what is best for the organization is what a leader’s role is best described as. Built on the solid foundation consisting of a clear mission, a vision for the future, a specific strategy, and a culture conducive to success, effective leadership at an organization can make everything work together seamlessly. It has been said that without leadership, all other business elements lie dormant.
Strong leaders can help an organization to maximize its productivity, achieve business goals, whereas weak leadership can hurt productivity and put the health of the business in jeopardy. Leadership is not a single-blanket characteristic that cures all ills, however, there are many elements that must be present for an organization’s leadership to be considered adequate. While Good leaders motivate employees to work hard and meet organizational needs through one means or another, it is influential leaders who initiate action by planning out who will perform what tasks, when the tasks will be completed, and by what means the tasks will be accomplished. The leadership of effective and well trained leaders is paramount to providing an agreed upon goal for the company’s success.
Ronald Reagan said, “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” While it is true for all leaders, this saying goes best for the leaders in the consulting industry. With numerous businesses approaching consultancy firms for right guidance towards achieving growth and success, there are numerous leaders within the industry who are leading the league with their expertise and skills. Raising a toast to such influential leaders who are a notch ahead of the rest within the consultancy sector, we at Consultants Review magazine have put together a list of ‘10 Most Influential Leaders from Consulting Industry - 2020’. We have also released a list of '10 Most Promising Image Consultants - 2020' who are improving the image of the client personally or professionally through appearance, behaviour, and communication. These carefully curated lists have been curated with careful considerations across various parameters. I hope this feature helps you in your future endeavors and we achieve our mission.
