Mark Ahn, PhD. and founding Principal of Pukana Partners has laid his top leadership strategies for 2015. As author of over 50 peer reviewed journal articles and 20 year veteran of various leadership positions his advice on leadership is noteworthy not only in his own industry, but in others as well. With his experience in military, academia, and business Mark Ahn has the unique position of being able to identify effective leadership qualities and strategies in a variety of settings and situations. His newest report explains several importation concepts for being an effective leader in 2015.
One of the biggest values stressed in the report is learning from those who came before you. Mark explains that good leadership qualities and tactics are timeless and that learning from the past is a surefire way to build the future. He also talks about the importance of leading with integrity. According to Mark one who doesn’t’ lead with integrity compromises the effectiveness of the institution. This is closely related to another principal he goes over: leading by example. Taking a “do as I say, not as I do” is ineffective according to Mark and will undermine your employees performance.
Another big issue Mark talks about is remaining humble. He explains that many leaders often times ignore the wisdom of those whom they lead and in doing so undermine their own effectiveness. He states that this is particularly important during times of crisis. Additionally Mark Ahn says that good leaders aren’t born, they are made. This depends upon making good leadership a habit and working at it every day. A lifetime of good leadership isn’t easy he says, but it is worth it and the benefits of being a good leader can’t be overstated.
