3 Ways to Build Leadership Capacity in Any Organization

Updated: Apr 10



All organizations typically have a common goal: to grow and thrive exponentially. This is easy to say, but how can it be done successfully?

Building leadership capacity is a great place to start. Leaders are a critical part of the puzzle in any organization, inspiring teamwork, promoting growth, and providing direction. We have explored three ways to build greater leadership capacity in this blog.

1. Building An Effective Team

Building an effective team with the right talent is crucial for being an effective leader. Cultivating a solid team of uniquely skilled individuals can help free up the capacity for you as a leader to operate with your head and not your hands. The right mix of talent can look different depending on where you are with your organizational growth. This may be a mix of full-time employees and staff augmentation for the established organization. For the budding entrepreneur, this may be a virtual Chief of Staff.

Choosing the right talent will advance productivity, expand the diversity of thought, and accelerate the roadmap to success. When this is done well, you effectively have space to focus on what matters – delivery value to your clients.

2. Reclaim Your A-Game

Leadership is a journey that you do not have to travel alone. The best athletes in the world have a coach. An Executive Coach can be an invaluable asset to have in your toolkit. Whether you are an emerging or established leader, having a coach to help create your roadmap to success is critical. Coaches are incredibly effective in guiding leaders to set clear goals and priorities.

If you find yourself struggling to navigate difficult situations or missing deadlines due to poor time management, it may be time to enlist the help of a coach. Maybe things are going well, but you are ready to take your career to the next level – a coach can help accelerate your results. They will help you formulate a comprehensive roadmap of your goals and the steps required to reach them. Defining and maintaining your growth trajectory can lead to more intentional, effective leadership. Situational awareness and accountability are imperative to becoming a great leader.

3. Accelerate Your Results

As you build your leadership capacity, understand the barriers that keep you from showing up as your best self. What support do you need to effectively level up and facilitate pivotal decision-making? A virtual Chief of Staff can add structure and accountability to your schedule, advance priorities, and boost your team's overall efficiency.

Engaging a partner who can offer strategic or operational support allows you to give your full attention to your clients. They can help ensure your focus is on the highest priorities and goals to add value. This solution also offers the scope for greater personal and organizational growth.
