“Leadership is not about a title, degree or level. Anybody can lead at any time.”
– Carly Fiorina
Anybody can lead at any time. That’s what she said.
Do you lead?
As a leader we make it possible for others to grow, excel and become the best they can be.
Don’t miss this, anybody can lead at any time.
Which means those you lead today will become the leaders of tomorrow. Give them the opportunity to become the best leaders they can be.
“A leader is a dealer in hope.”
– Napoleon Bonaparte
Not everything will come easily.
People need to be inspired and to have hope. It is the role of the leader to provide these.
Give people hope and it will carry them forward.
“Our journey is just beginning.”
The leader needs to be honest and truthful to those they lead.
If you tell them your journey together will be for a week or two and then the journey turns out to be twice as long or more their output and resulting behavior will reflect their disappointment and disillusionment.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
When everything is going smoothly it’s easy to be the leader.
When working aboard ships the best seaman are those that have experienced storms and rough seas. It is only those who have experienced the squalls who can appreciate the importance of stowing everything away properly and securing all the loose gear.
“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”
– General George Patton
Do you surround yourself with bobble head ‘yes’ people? Does that serve your ego or the business?
Lead by creating a culture where everyone feels secure in expressing another viewpoint.
Blind acceptance by ‘group think’ doesn’t necessarily translate into growth and profitability.
