“A leader takes people where they want to go.
A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go but ought to be.”
The dichotomy of leadership is there really is no one telling you what to do, which is great and than again there is no one telling you what to do….which means it is so about you.
Spending your time and talent in the right areas are key to achieving the success you know is possible. I cannot tell you how many people I meet who so want to be free of people telling them what to do that when they are free…. they become lost and ineffective.
To be a leader a strong and effective leader it takes:
- having a clear set of core values,
- clear and doable goals which are inspirational and aspirational
- the ability to discipline yourself to focus on the right activities to achieve your goals,
- the diligence to constantly learn and grow new skills and behaviors to adapt to new levels of expectations and performance
- take time...
