Leadership Stage Teamwork and a Common Vision by Thiyagarajakumar Ramaswamy BTech,MBA,MBL,SAP,PMP,PH.D,Director,KalaAnantarupah Media Labs & Group

Leadership Stage Team Work and A Common Vision

Our KalaAnantarupah Group Director and  ; Leadership Stage Concept Creator Thiyagarajakumar Ramaswamy always think in terms of "WE" rather than "I".He offered a unique perspective on this when he said "An army is a team.It lives, eats, sleeps,fights as a team.This Individuality stuff is a bunch of crap".

When the team succeeds, every member deserves and takes credit; and every member must share responsibility for failures. This approach is a good way of gaining members buy-in for tough decisions. The Leadership Stage team members need to know as much as on the senior Leaders on the L.S Team. They want to be an integral part of the solution and are willing to sacrifice during tough times so long as they see sacrifice coming from the top first.

While management can be delegated to responsible people,leadership cannot. The best Leaders surround themselves with capable people who can perform and supervise the tasks and processes necessary to run a successful business.Leaders understand that getting people united behind them is different than issuing instructions on what those people should be doing. Leaders must focus on the bigger picture and ensure that everyone shares a common vision. This responsibility can't be effectively transferred because that vision must come straight from the top.

You must be willing to make decisions and lead by example. Some consider this the most important quality in the leadership stage concept.Leaders should also avoid being surrounded by "YES MAN" and insist that subordinates be honest,even when they know their comments are not what the leader wants to hear. This enables leaders to anticipate and avoid bigger problems well before they occur by testing the viability and strength of proposed solutions. Open discussion and debate usually lead to better decision-making  and a feeling of inclusiveness and ownership for all involved.
