Do You Have Leadership Potential?

Uncategorized

Given the number of different leadership styles, it is no wonder that most people are confused by what it takes to be a leader.

Do you aspire to take on leadership responsibilities?  Do you worry because you are not like the other leaders in your company?  Isn’t it about time you invested a little time to understand the gap between where you are and where you want to be?

Although many people aspire to be leaders, a majority of people fear leadership.

Fear comes from observing high-profile leaders and thinking you have to change to be a leader.

The fact is, leaders come in all styles and personalities.

Would it surprise you to discover that you can receive a professional assessment of your leadership style by sending an email?

You can buy a book highlighting the characteristics of successful leaders (with backgrounds like yours) for less than $25. 

You can receive an in-depth leadership assessment with an action plan, for less than $125.

 Given the right set of circumstances, almost anybody can be a leader, regardless of their personality.

There is a myth that leaders are born not made.  Because this myth is so widely believed, leadership is rarely taught in schools.  Most people do not understand leadership. They learn about leadership by observing people in leadership positions.  Which is dangerous given that people in leadership positions are not always good leaders.

Five Compelling Reasons to Invest in Leadership Development

Leadership Excellence

Companies and individuals have a tough time justifying the cost of leadership development. They find it hard to point to immediate quantifiable benefits.

In most cases, people hesitate to make this investment because they don’t understand leadership. They think leadership is only for the handful of executives at the top.

I have even heard owners of small companies say: “I am the leader, why do we need to train anybody else?” Then they can’t understand why they work 80 or 90 hours a week and never seem to get anywhere. How sad is that?

The fact is, improving leadership skill of everyone in the organization has enormous benefits. The best companies boast about their great leadership at all levels of the organization.

Here are a few of the benefits resulting from leadership development.
1. You are able to attract and retain higher quality people.
2. You experience consistently high morale.
3. You are more productive.
4. You are more innovative.
5. You are more profitable.

Over the next few weeks I will delve into each of these benefits in more detail and explain how leadership impacts each of them.
