Are you a leader? Are you experiencing significant change in your organization or industry? Do you want to learn how to lead successfully during these challenging times?
When I ask audiences to identify the greatest leaders in the history of the world, a few names always make the list: Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Jesus Christ.
After asking this question repeatedly over the years, I finally noticed something. The leaders, who were consistently rated as great, shared one thing in common.
They had all been killed. They didn't die natural deaths. They were either executed or assassinated. This led me to explore the lessons that we can learn from their example. During that journey, I discovered four leadership principles that have the power to transform your leadership and your legacy.
First, great leaders influenced others because of their willingness to suffer and sacrifice, but terrible leaders inflicted suffering on others.
Second, great leaders were willing to endure tremendous pain because they were pursuing a powerful purpose, but terrible leaders were focused on selfish goals.
Third, great leaders were humble and were willing to subordinate their own fame to achieve a higher goal, but terrible leaders were only concerned with increasing their own celebrity.
Fourth, great leaders were strange, different and unusual. Many loved them but many others rejected them. In contrast, terrible leaders enforced conformity.
In this session we will:
- Identify four qualities of great leaders
- Explore the relationship between suffering and influence
- Examine the connection between purpose and perseverance
- Discover the link between humility and greatness
- Discuss the relationship between deviance and success
