agency believe that in order to find the best leadership candidates, businesses should look past what is on paper and review their prospects on a more personal level by understanding the importance of altrocentrism in leadership.
Altrocentric leaders don't rely on their authority to get results. This form of leadership is quickly becoming outdated, with a rise in freelance and flexible working hours it's difficult for leaders to be in charge of everyone on their workforce all of the time. Altrocentric leaders recognize the importance of supporting and encouraging today's varied workforce to help workers reach their full potential.

Great altrocentric leaders don't see themselves as 'in charge'; they only view themselves as part of a 'whole'. Yorkston Oakmont believes this is a vital skill in the current economic climate. As businesses are starting to see opportunities for growth it's important for business leaders to be sharing their knowledge and approach with their workforce in order to inspire them to become great leaders in the future. Learning from experience provides people with greater industry knowledge and learning from an altrocentric leader can help businesses create a strong generation of emotionally intelligent leaders that will help their future growth plans go the distance.
Altrocentric leaders not only benefit their business, but benefit employees too. Their empathy and contextualizing abilities allows them to understand the needs of a diverse workforce and recognize the individual requirements of each worker. By building positive work relationships an altrocentric leader ensures workers are happy in their roles, whilst the business benefits from a high standard of work and an increase in productivity. As part of a 'whole', an altrocentric leader is a productive team player at their core and as such, enjoys seeing others accomplish their goals. This appreciation of others and constant support is a great boost to workplace morale and creates a positive company culture, that spreads through all business processes.
