Invictus Leader’s concept of “True Leadership” is unique, but for comparison sake, we shall liken it to Level 5 Leadership, which was developed by Jim Collins. According to Collins’ research, Level 5 Leaders have a unique blend of strong resolve and deep humility, quick to admit mistakes but slow to claim credit for success.
Though the process of becoming a True Leader may be arduous or daunting, it can be achieved if you have the sincere passion and calling to do so. Although the list of leadership characteristics of a True Leader is not meant to be exhaustive, Invictus Leader advocates some basic principles to achieve True Leadership:
Authenticity is an important foundation of True Leaders. Break it and everything else will crumble, not necessarily immediately, but eventually.
Humility is constructive, whereas arrogance is destructive. True Leaders are not too proud to ask for help from someone who is stronger than them in a specific area. On the other hand, when others need their help, True Leaders are ready to offer it.
True Leaders take responsibility for their team’s actions. When things go wrong, Level 5 Leaders don’t wash their hands off but stand behind their team members. When there is success, Level 5 Leaders ensures that due credit goes to the team.
True Leaders are disciplined in their work and commitment. They are open to viewpoints but don’t allow fear or criticisms to derail them from doing what is right.
The wisdom of True Leaders causes them to realize that they cannot do it all alone. True Leaders are willing to invest time in finding the right people and helping them to reach their full potential.
True Leadership is not a destination but a journey. Although you may be recognized as a True Leader, you never arrive at the pinnacle.
We develop Leaders…Leaders develop Leaders…Leaders lead Companies.

INVICTUS INTELLECT LEADERSHIP™
Invictus Intellect Leadership™ is the infusion of Mindful Leadership, Intellect Thinking, Opposable Mind and Strategic Thinking. It is the ability of leaders to hold in their minds several opposing ideas at once. And then without losing their EQ or simply settling for a single alternative, these leaders are able to creatively resolve the tension between those opposing ideas by generating a new one that contains elements of the others but is superior to all. In this way, Invictus Intellect Leadership™ advocates a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset.
