What is High Beam Leadership
The leaders that see the future most clearly are the one’s who have the most success. These are the leaders that forecast, innovate, and guide their organizations into a prosperous future. These are the men and women who are remembered. They are people with vision, who saw a trend, had confidence in their beliefs, and seized an opportunity. These are high beam leaders and everyone has the ability to become one. High beam leadership requires developing a high beam strategy, one that builds on the ability to spot trends and react to them. It requires being able to take advantage of a trend, or defend against its negative impact, which is what we call trend leveraging. You can become a high beam leader, although it takes effort. The process involves staying current on three types of trends – organizational, industry, and macro – trendspotting along with the other leaders in your organization, tying these trends to your organizational strategy, taking a broad look into the future, and developing a robust investment portfolio in three different areas – People, Products (or services), and Processes.
