Special recipe for deconstructing leadershipGreg Mowbray

IT’S COMPLICATED: Newcastle’s own deconstructed Vegemite on toast. One of the reasons whymy wife reckons I’m a keeper is that not only am I a good cook, but I like to cook and I’m happy to do my fair share. I used to like MasterChef until it got too fancy for my simple tastes and methods – you know things like deconstructing well-known and loved family meals.

I had to laugh recently at the global media coverage that a Newy cafe received when a photo of its deconstructed Vegemite on toast was posted on Instagram.

Why would you want to deconstruct something? Is it to simplify it so you better appreciate it? Or is it just putting another spin on something? Either way, I thought I’d have a crack at deconstructing leadership.

Leaders have a vision. They know where they want to go and how they want to be better. They know where their organisations are going and they share that vision. They help others develop visions for where they want to go too. Leaders have a strong desire to make things better.

Leaders are authentic. They tell the truth. They do what they say they are going to do. They have difficult conversations even though they know they are awkward – they owe it to their people to give feedback even if it’s painful. Leaders build trust in relationships.

Leaders are action oriented. They get stuff done. They are productive and efficient because they prioritise the most important things and say no to the rest. They are committed to planning and know that we need to constantly change in order to keep up. Leaders are happy to take risks and learn from mistakes.

Leaders take responsibility. They own up if they stuff up and they expect everyone else to as well. They make sure that everyone understands what is expected of them and accepts responsibility for their job. They follow up when things go right and when things go wrong. A leader creates a culture of accountability.

Leaders inspire others. They set great examples. They give us confidence. They challenge us, push us and trust us. They support us when we fail. They believe in creating more leaders, not just followers. They think about not leaving a legacy, but creating the legacy now.

So, there is my dish of deconstructed leadership. If you have a desire to positively influence those around you – your kids, partner, friends,employees, workmates or boss – bon appetit!
