Are you a leader? Based upon the title, you already know not to take the bait. Some of you know you are a leader because you are a supervisor, manager, director, VP, or are a member of the C-Suite. Is it possible to hold one of those positions and not be a leader? Granted, it probably isn’t. The question then becomes: Is it possible to hold one of those positions and be a bad leader?
Let’s start with the definition of leadership. I credit my favorite and, in my opinion, only correct definition of leadership to John Maxwell. I heard this definition almost 20 years ago and have never forgotten it. I was able to achieve this incredible feat because the definition is only one word: Influence. All of the other definitions I have read over the years are all contained in the two words of leadership and influence. Words like vision, direction, followers, motivation, passion, and management can all be sub-words to leadership and influence. If you lead someone, you by the very nature of the word are trying to motivate other people to go in a particular direction. It’s that simple. I am proposing that if you want to lead people, you want to influence them. If you want to influence them, you have to think of ways to do that.
However, within that simplicity was a crucial principle that too many leaders seem to forget, with crushing consequences. The gem is that people grant you the authority to lead them, or better said, they grant you the power to influence them. We need to treat the truth that leadership is granted, not assumed as sacred. That one belief sets the tone for all of aspects, principles, systems, and paradigms of leadership. It disciplines us, keeps us accountable, humble, and always cognizant of our own leadership mortality.
This webinar will summarize all of the major components of leadership, as well as list the “taboos” of leadership failures. Even after decades of research and discussion, leaders still commit the seven deadly sins. We need to hold ourselves accountable as leaders and not be surprised when things go awry when we fail to heed these warnings.
