✨If you can’t ferry them to a hopeful destiny, you are not a leader, you are a manipulator. You are selling lies, shortcuts and false promises like Adolf Hitler.
Secure leaders go where there is no path and leave a trail behind. They recognize that the speed of the leader is the speed of the pack. Often, they wear two hats: coach and mentor.
✨As a coach, a secure leader walks alongside his/her coachee. S/he understands the player. Puts things in perspective. Listens. Foresees and paves the way. Recognizes that the success of the coach is the success of the coachee.
✨As a mentor, a secure leader is the symbol of success. He leads by his life. He never sends people where he has never been.
As a leader, stop pointing like some travel agents. People don’t want to follow your fingers. They want to follow you. It is estimated that up-to 86% of what we know, we learned visually.
✨If you are an insurance branch manager, go to the field with your team, let them see you handle business objections and close the sale or at least open new relationships.
✨If you are in service industry, smile and groom the way you want them to do it.
✨If you are an employer, treat your employees the way you want them to treat your finest customers. How you treat them sets the standard on how they behave amongst themselves and with external customers.
Don’t tell them to keep time, you keep time. Set the pattern. Your working vocabulary sets the standard on the language that will be used by your team members.
Good Leaders Explain.
Superior Leaders Demonstrate. Great Leaders Inspire.
✨Gen. Douglas MacArthur said, “A good general does not push his soldiers from behind, he leads them from in-front.”
Let’s Engage: Are you a good general?
