Leadership for the 21st century - A Human ApproachBy Jason Heaton and Gene Atherton
Throughout our careers in corrections we have been students of the kinds of behavior that make the best, most effective leaders. During our experience with correctional leadership training over the years, we have been exposed to a large number of senior role models and important information on leadership from places such as the Center for Creative Leadership in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the National Institute of Corrections. Further, we observed the behavior of persons we have admired most as leaders in our individual work environments. Driven by an ongoing curiosity about what works best, the fundamental question we have always asked is, “What common threads run through all these examples of excellence?” In directly questioning many of those leaders, we found that they also were mindful of what seemed to work best for them and they, also, looked to others. They too had developed themselves over their career by studying the successes of others. This article will describe our version of the best characteristics of leadership – the characteristics that are need for success in the 21st century. We believe they are basically human characteristics. full story
