Art Consultant Certification- Course 3, Module 1: Situational Leadership
This week, we cover a topic that is important to any art consultant – leadership! Yes, as an art consultant you are a natural born leader. We see it every day at Art Force and strongly believe that honing your leadership skills will directly impact your strength as an art consultant.
The course you are about to embark upon is one that everyone here at Art Force completes: The Situational Leadership Model. Of course, leadership can take many forms but primarily falls into two buckets – leadership and management. From there, we can of course break leadership down further to include project management, people management, account management, and so forth. This course, however, is centered on principles, definitions and useful tools for gauging the “readiness” of individuals to determine the best leadership style to embrace.
This course begins by drawing contrast between leadership and management. As said by both Peter Drucker and Warren Bennis, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” As the course will demonstrate, both leadership and management are critical to organizational success. Moreover, leaders can be managers and vice versa.
The key is to get both leaders and managers “singing from the same sheet of music” to achieve optimal organizational efficiency and success. That is precisely the aim of this course. To get you thinking about the different ways you can directly align your strengths as a leader with the mission and values of Art Force.
