Georg Vielmetter and Yvonne Sell (Hay Group) discuss altrocentric leadership.The era of alpha-male leadership is over. Leaders who place themselves center stage and lead predominantly by coercing and pacesetting have a misguided understanding of the nature of leadership. They will not cope with the megatrend storm.
- Altrocentric leadership is necessary in order to cope with the megatrend storm. But there is no algorithm, no single test or training program for the development of an altrocentric leader. Altrocentric leadership is not a template or form that can be filled in.This is because each altrocentric leader is different, even if each shares common features and some of the competencies described above. Each has a different self-image and self-understanding based on his unique characteristics. So it would be misleading to recommend a set of specific tips, steps, or points of advice to follow in order to become an altrocentric leader. Altrocentric leadership is a journey with no clear destination.
