SELF MANAGING LEADERSHIP
S E L F M A N AG I N G L E A D E R S H I P
LEADERSHIP as combination of two principal factors:
Strategy + Character
IN OUR “CONCEPTUAL” ERA THE ORGANIZATIONS UNDERSTOOD THAT THE KEY OF SUCCESS
- AND THE SURVIVAL - IS IN THE DEVELOPING OF THE TOP TALENT
Leadership in fact is an attitude, a way of being; it is about taking people with you even when you
have no authority over them. Leadership is a result of the relationship you establish with others
and every conversation is an opportunity to establish a relationship. Leaders need other people’s
help to achieve the results they are aiming for; leadership skills, therefore, are fundamental to
working effectively with others and are applicable whenever people interact.
Leadership is a combination of being and doing and the doing is given by the being. It is the
leader’s character that will determine her/his actions. When someone is being a leader, then it is
easy for them to enhance their leadership skills such as creating a vision, communicating effec-
tively, influencing others, working effectively in a team, creating a motivating environment, etc.
One of the most successful leadership development program that addresses and develops the charac-
ter of a leader is the Self Managing Leadership (SML) program of the Oxford Leadership Academy.
During the SML programme, participants:
· Develop a deep understanding of what it takes to be an effective leader
· Understand why people follow leaders
· Learn to lead oneself before leading others
· Learn to strengthen their emotional and social intelligence
· Identify and build on their leadership strengths
· Create a sense of meaning and belonging
· Identify and address negative patterns and constraints in leadership behaviours
· Develop a 90-day action plan that will have a positive impact on their Work
This is a foundation course that helps participants master other aspects of working with others
Communication: one can communicate according to all the best rules of communication yet not
convince anyone. It is the congruency of the communication that is convincing and one cannot
be congruent if one does not know oneself or know how to lead oneself.
Effectively working in a team: Managers see people’s competence, leaders see people’s poten-
tial. Leaders see further and wider than managers. They see the consequence of their actions on
other parts of the organisation, they do not just use their colleagues’ skills, they help them grow.
A true team player appreciates the competence and potential of the other people on the team; a
true team player empowers others. Leadership skills are a critical component of an effective team
player, when being either leader or follower.
Project management: 80% of project failures is caused by people issues. Whilst it is important to
master the techniques of project management, the relationship one establishes with the team is
more important. Leadership is about creating empowering relationships.

TIA FORMAZIONE INTERNAZIONALE
TIA FORMAZIONE INTERNAZIONALE Association (www.formazioneinternazionale.net), who-
se acronym TIA stands for Transformation in action, was founded in February 2011 in order to link
together several social realities such as universities, institutional partners, associations and poli-
tical actors. Often, these actors are not able to communicate to each other to the aim of sharing
values even though they should do it constantly, if it could happen in a positive way it could be a
benefit for common good. Since its foundation, TIA has been promoting events concerning poli-
tical and cultural issues, organizing education courses, books promotion, meetings, conferences,
seminars and forums. Some of its key events are:
- Mice 2012- (Migliorare l’Informazione e la Comunicazione Europea-Improving European Infor-
mation and Communication) the aim of this course was to develop some guidelines to improve
the European communication and information . This project was supported by President of Italian
- “La donna, il cambiamento, l’Europa” (“Woman, change, Europe”) took place at the European
office of European Parliament in Rome in cooperation with Equality association.
TIA has also promoted several seminars about European Journalism, Euro Project Management
SELF MANAGING LEADERSHIP and European Union Civic Education and seminars connected to the spiritual growth such as
“Free to fly” managed by Mysakti.
TIA’s mission is not only promoting a constructive change and a new conceptual framework lin-
ked with personality, competences and vision, but also it is raising European cultural awareness
focusing on multiculturalism, policies and activities.
This is the reason why some of TIA members have coaching and spiritual experiences.
