The death of a high-profile person who has served in a prominent position for a long time is often an opportunity for business executives to share their leadership lessons.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday is one of those opportunities. An informal survey of leadership experts and observers found these timely lessons.

Be clear about your role

“I believe it is impossible for anyone to find a CEO, politician, celebrity or sports figure who even comes close to exemplifying the duty, strength, hope, determination and dignity of Queen Elizabeth II,” said Nick Cullum, Founder and CEO Partner of Reputation. said in a statement.

“He did so virtually until the day he died, despite being constantly in the public eye and facing numerous personal, family and cultural challenges. His ability to do this consistently, spanning more than seven decades, is simply amazing.

“The lesson for business executives is to be crystal clear about your role and goals, as well as the example you set for all your stakeholders, and then stick to them regardless of outside factors that might flag or sway you,” Kalam concludes.

“One thing [the Queen] He will be remembered for his willingness to listen in terms of leadership lessons, Wendy L. Patrick, a lecturer in business law at San Diego State University, said by email.

“Many who have worked with him describe him as open-minded and forward-thinking, receptive to opposing views and not afraid to change his mind. Her coronation was reportedly televised when she was initially opposed to breaking tradition: her husband persuasively changed her mind,” recalls Patrick.

“Queen Elizabeth appreciated the value of public relations and listened to public relations advice – especially in times of crisis, such as when Lady Diana died, and she hesitated to honor her in public because Diana was no longer a member of the royal family at that time. ,” Marcia Rhodes, vice president of Amendola Communications, a marketing and public relations firm, said in a statement.

“Like most leaders, the Queen had blind spots; But listening to advisers, he continues to enjoy the highest approval rating (75%) of any living British monarch,” Rhodes noted.

Providing value

“The most important leadership lesson I think is that we t[can] to take from [her is] Leaders who provide values, vision, and direction for countries, organizations, etc.,” University of Denver management professor Andy Cohen said via email;

Queen Elizabeth II “reigned in Great Britain during a 70-year period of great change in the world. Yet, we always had the impression that Britain, its leadership and its people maintained the same values ​​and who they were or were through. Great entities (companies, countries, other organizations) do the same, maintaining a clear sense of values ​​and purpose even as specifications and strategies change,” he observed.

‘Play the long game’

“I think the second lesson we should take from him is that leaders play the long game and rise above fleeting—and perhaps confusing—challenges. The royal family presented the queen with much confusion [with] Their personal lives during his reign,” Cohen recalled.

“We don’t know much about what went on behind closed doors … but we do know that the Queen outwardly presented a sense of calm and stability. This is his playing the long game and staying true to the higher order [of] The objective that the monarchy represents,” he concluded.
