Prescient Consulting, LLC founder and Iowa City-based business expert Jeff Nock demonstrates the importance of senior leadership teams.
With effective leadership widely accepted as essential to organizational success, the increasing complexity of today’s modern corporate world is, according to business consultant Jeff Nock, making developing successful leadership teams within many organizations tougher than ever before. Founder of Prescient Consulting, LLC, based in Iowa City, Iowa, Nock details how best to develop successful leadership within new and established organizations alike.
“With personal accountability and self-management becoming the norm in recent years, developed leadership teams are, in turn, becoming less and less prevalent,” says Nock.
The way in which an organization’s most senior members work together is, however, he believes, pivotal to business success. “As the modern corporate world becomes increasingly more complex, it’s now more important than ever to establish successful leadership teams within organizations of all shapes and sizes,” adds Nock.
According to Jeff Nock, how an organization’s senior executives and other leaders work together is often fundamental in either failure or success. “An organization’s leadership team should be its primary driving force,” adds the expert, “responsible for everything from executing business strategies to motivating employees to achieve their potential and live the culture.”
Of employee morale, for example, Nock suggests that where members of staff are disengaged or feel ignored, it leads to a decay of culture. “Every aspect of leadership, therefore, has the potential to make or break a business, which is why it’s so important that every organization has a developed leadership team in place,” he adds.
Nock places what he calls ‘collective responsibilities’ high on the list of fundamental business practices required for long-term success. “It’s about structure and collective responsibilities,” suggests the business consultant, “and, with structure and collective responsibilities, comes a highly effective working environment, something which, today, is often lacking, particularly among small and midsize businesses.”
From a common vision to shared goals and priorities, Nock believes that developing an effective leadership team within an organization begins with trust. “From there, it’s about values, communication, and decision-making abilities,” he adds, “as well as accountability, successful conflict management, and much more.”
“The list,” Nock continues, “goes on and on, which is where an experienced business consultant, skilled in leadership team development, can prove vital.”
