The leadership HR vision of Phénicia conseil, an international recruitment firm specialized in the recruitment of talents on the African continent and the Middle East
A humanistic view of leadership:
A leader is a self-assertive individual, aware of his strengths and weaknesses.
The leader knows what he wants, why he wants it and how to communicate it to his collaborators in order to gain their support.
This concept is part of Phénicia conseil’s humanistic vision of leadership to develop the human dimension and trust within organizations.
The values of leadership:
This is the key characteristic of leadership and is expressed in the consistency between speech and action.
Employees only believe what they see. Statements of intent followed by no tangible action discredit a manager, especially if they are repeated.
If they are not followed by concrete actions, speeches, however ambitious they may be, do not inspire trust but rather disavowal.
Intellectual integrity does not only lie in the coherence between speeches and actions but also in the sincerity of the interactions, the openness to others, and the transparency in human relations.
This value is fundamental to build a leadership that fosters trust.
Competence and expertise to guide a team:
A manager’s leadership cannot be recognized unless he demonstrates his ability to guide his employees, introduce change, and motivate his teams through actions that instill confidence in the achievement of goals.
Employees follow managers who have already demonstrated their expertise.
Mastery and know-how in a technical field are essential for managerial credibility.
This skill corresponds to a Manager’s ability to perceive the future not through a premonitory vision, but through the ability to set a course, orientations, and deadlines in the achievement of objectives.
This approach responds to a company executive’s operational questions about the meaning given to daily actions in a professional activity: why do we work? How are we going to do this… The “how” must replace the directive semantics “it must be done” with neither explanation nor action plan.
The ability to motivate and unite teams around objectives:
There can be no long-term professional values if all of a company’s employees do not share them.
This refers to the desire to transmit values through enthusiasm, dynamism, and a positive outlook on the future.
Intellectual integrity, competence and vision are the major components of leadership.
