L.E.A.D. – The Recipe Of Successful Leadership
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” —Jack Welch
One of the most important truths that many new leaders fail to understand is that now their success depends on the success of their followers. One may be a competent salesperson, service crew, technical staff, accountant or engineer but the competence doesn’t spontaneously translate to competence as a leader. A new leader is often caught like a deer frozen in the headlights, feeling absolutely inadequate in his new role. One minute he is the competent and confident individual contributor and the next minute he is the supposed inspiring leader who is put on a stage before an expectant audience. So what is a leader expected to do?
I believe the four most important aspects of leadership can be summarized in the acronym L.E.A.D.
Which aspect of leadership do you find most important or lacking in your organization? Are your leaders trained to L.E.A.D.?
