LC Theory of Change
The Soft Skills
are the Hard Skills
At the LC, we believe the "soft skills" of leadership are actually the hardest — to learn, to earn, to nurture, and to retain. Yet they are pivotal in driving positive change in today's complex social and business climate.
The traits of Evolved Leadership are typically considered soft in nature, or "nice to have," but in fact are the most effective and legacy-building attributes of the best leaders; past, present, or future.
These shifts in norms require a more human-centered and modern approach to leading. And traditionally defined aspirational leadership qualities (e.g. transformational or charismatic) should be more dimensional than the limited view that we currently celebrate and reward.
This kind of leadership development cannot be done overnight or in a routine "one size fits all" way. It takes courage and commitment to align around a more transformative and enduring change within yourself and your team(s). And it takes organizations who know that a "growth mindset" should mean more than just focusing on the bottom line.
