The capacity to exercise introspection and the willingness to learn more about oneself.
To inspire, adapt, and develop, evolutionary leaders constantly invests in their own self-awareness. Not only does this make them vulnerable to change, but they view self-acceptance as a necessary step to fuel continuous growth. Through self-reflection, the evolutionary leader creates the internal capacity to inspire, adapt, and develop.
The ability to create energy, motivate others to action, and invoke positive emotions.
Evolutionary leaders must be able to show the way even when they don’t know the scope of the full journey. Uncertainty and ambiguity make the end-point unclear, but the aspiration that guides a leader’s vision must be clear. Inspiration generates intrinsic motivation and internal energy because it connects individual purpose to a larger purpose.
The ability to foster disruption, modify, and make things suitable for a new purpose.
Faced with unprecedented volatility, the evolutionary leader fosters internal and external adaptation, helping the system absorb change in real time and develop the capacity to generate more positive change. Adaptation is a core aspect of this leadership model: it positions the ‘doing’ beyond mere execution and into the realm of constant experimentation and continuous improvement
The ability to master complexity, grow personally, and cultivate growth in others.
Crowdsourcing, co-creation, the sharing economy, and the increasing uptake of network models throughout the value chain make the ‘Develop’ pillar of the evolutionary leadership model critical to an organization’s ability to generate sustainable growth. Through this model, evolutionary leaders develop their own, and their organization’s capacity to manage complexity, which, today, is in many ways relational.
