“Which leadership profile will be most successful?” is the question leadership development expert Katalin Howell had been hearing for decades from her executive coaching clients and leadership program participants. With so many different theories on leadership and so many different psychometrics measuring a vast range of leadership capabilities, clients just wanted to know what they really needed to focus on to be most successful as a leader. So Katalin began researching the evolution of leadership styles and the range of current leadership theory to develop a new leadership model representing the ideal or most effective leadership.
Katalin does believe optimal leadership is achievable, and was drawn to positive psychology and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s concept of an optimal state called FLOW. Applying the concept of Flow to Leadership, she developed the Flow Leadership model, and a new range of leadership development programs based on Flow Leadership.
Katalin’s research confirmed that every leadership profile can be optimal in a certain situation or with certain individuals, and the same profile will be completely ineffective in a different context. Therefore, the message that Kat highlights with program participants and coaching clients is that the most effective and successful leader is both self-aware and skilled; they are capable of fluently adapting their approach to fit the current context, optimally utilising their skills in a challenging environment.
The Flow Leadership program answers the question of which leadership style leads to greatest success, and provides you with a step-by-step guide to developing your self-awareness, maximising your strengths and becoming the ideal leader.
