Historically, people navigated their way in the world through the positioning of the sun, moon and stars. Navigators, sailors and astronomers also used the North Star, known as Polaris, as their true north, relying on it to give them a sense of direction.
However, in business, it is the owner who sets the direction and it is their vision, moral and otherwise, that will give staff a sense of their true north. It serves as a marker to direct their path and ensure they are staying true to their desired course.
We at Fetola believe that leadership is not a role that can be assigned, it is a personal choice driven by an inner desire and long-term commitments. Every enterprise development programme facilitated by Fetola includes an assessment of your leadership style and values. Take a test here and find out your true north.
