Where Did You Learn Your Leadership Style?
Leading individuals is not hard when things are going well, or in your mind, the way you want them to go. The true test of your leadership ability, your knowledge, rallying the troops, motivating the masses and getting goals, missions and objectives accomplished is when you bring the underdog to the top dog position (ie, Lee Iacocca). It’s when your valor and character are pushed to the wall and you go over the wall.
Great Leaders Are Not Born
Everyone is born with a gift, talent or ability to accomplish. They are not born with that ability perfected. It must be developed, massaged and honed over time, sometimes years or decades. During this time of refinement, many poor decisions and failures will be had – but the true leader will learn from those decisions and failures and continue to strive toward what they internally know is a greater objective; not just for accolades and self-enrichment but to impact the well-being of many. When this realization has dawned within the individual, is when the Leader is created.
Many desire to be leaders but disdain being mentored (Mentoring Monday), teachable (Teachable Tuesday), wise (Wisdom Wednesday) not just in business endeavors but specifically in the policing of their own moral compass and personal day-to-day interactions and in seeing the vision (Thought Provoking Thursday). They want to come out of the gate leading the charge but have spent no time in the trenches. Leadership may be innate but must be intentional, sacrificing and cultivated.
