What is Leadership?

THE DEFINITION

Being the leader and being a leader are two very different things.

Anyone can be called a leader when placed into a position of power. But true leadership as a verb – meaning to lead – is something you do, not something you are.

A true leader only needs two things: a purpose and a following. They attract and influence others by simply communicating what they believe. The group follows the leader through thick and thin not because they have to, but because they’re inspired to.

If you’re still unsure if you’re a leader, look no further than your team:

  • Do they demonstrate an eager-to-please attitude?
  • Are they company-minded?
  • Do they jump on board with new ideas?
  • Are they honest and transparent with you?
  • Do they understand your vision and share your values?

Going Deeper...

WHAT IS EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP?

Leaders may inspire action, but inspiration alone doesn’t guarantee results. Effective leaders, on the other hand, guide the inspired towards a specific goal. They oversee the physical execution of the plan and provide direction along the away. Effective managers are one part leader and one part manager, just like a football coach.

You’d never see a football coach show up to a game and give and inspiration speech, only to head home and return an hour later to see who wonThey’re right there on the sidelines, calling the plays and taking corrective action in real time

Effective leaders overcome challenges and bring their team to victory!

QUALITIES OF AN EFFECTIVE LEADER

THERE ARE GREAT LEADERS EVERYWHERE. HERE'S WHAT THEY HAVE IN COMMON.

Passion

Effective leaders care deeply about their work and it shows. Their confidence and unshakeable optimism is contagious.

Courage

Effective leaders do what's right because it's the right thing to do. Their actions inspire others to rise above.

Perception

Effective leaders rely on their situational awareness and past experiences to make the appropriate decision.

Self-Awareness

Effective leaders keep themselves in check by recognizing and regulating their emotions.

Team-Builders

Effective leaders are mentors who openly share knowledge and personal experiences to develop others.

Perseverance

Effective leaders don't allow themselves to get discouraged and are committed to making the idea work.

One Last Thing

MOVING FORWARD

Effective leaders keep an eye on the finer details without getting lost in the logistics of how.

Remember, you’re the football coach and not the quarterback. While it’s your responsibility to provide direction to your team, there still has to be enough flexibility for others to do their job. Because without trust, there is no team.
 
Lastly, it takes years to temper your skills as an effective leader, so don’t put pressure on yourself to get everything right out of the gate. Instead, choose one or two things to work on and focus on consistency before adding another. Good luck – you’ve got this!
