At Ambits, we believe that leadership development takes place at three different levels. For each level, we have defined nine competencies you could work on.

Strong leaders are first good at leading themselves. It is an absolute condition to be good at leading others and your organization. If you are good at self-leadership, you can move to lead others. This means leading your team, department, or project. At this level, we refer to people management competencies. Good people managers could pass to the third and highest level of leadership: leading the organization. At this level, we refer to the competencies needed to contribute to the future success of your organization.
