Leadership.RO was founded by Leadership Development Solutions, as part of its new leadership-development model called The Leadership Alliance. This new model aims at to bring together all the ‘actors’ of the leadership landscape of Romania who contribute to its development:
- the business organization,
- the individual professional and, finally,
- the business environment in which the former two interact.
While the organization and the individual can be easily identified, the business environment is much more abstract and – therefore – more difficult to grasp. Our work is meant to make such an environment reachable, by creating this virtual platform in the hope that it will be accpted and used as an unpretentious common ground.
There are several needs of the participants to the leadership environment which we want to address and which can bring more light into the picture:
- The need for identifying and analyzing objectively clear examples of leadership, as they have happened in the past
- The need to achieve a better understanding of the difference between leadership, management and administration
- The need to achieve a better structure and a better conceptual framework related to the functional areas where leadership is needed most in the modern business organization (functional leadership)
- The need for discussing and sharing information about leadership in a professional, objective and constructive manner and, finally,
- ... the most important need to encourage, foster and sustain the development of leadership skills and abilities in the young generation, the future leaders in the Romanian private business sector
