Addressing COO challenges post pandemic

In its simplest form leadership is a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organisation to “lead” or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organisations.

The COO is arguably more closely aligned with Human Resources than ever, and takes a meaningful role in staff development, anchoring this to retention, staff morale, and their development, which are intrinsically linked to purpose, productivity, and profit.

The problem is that leadership is not that simple, and neither is a leader born. Leaders are made and if any organisation is to be successfully led, this is important to understand.

Equally it is important for the individual to understand that whilst not proven in leadership or perhaps being questioned as to this capability, self-investment, and self belief in developing your leadership capabilities can pay dividend.

It is widely recognised that leadership is a set of skills that can be learned by training, perception, practice, and experience over time. Leadership learning is lifetime activity. Good leaders seek out development opportunities that will help them learn new skills.
