Leadership gets a lot of press. Everyone knows that we need to have better leadership everywhere — in government, business, media, non-profits and in homes
But what is leadership at a practical and real level?
- Warren Bennis says, “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
- John Maxwell defines leadership as being influence – nothing more, nothing less.
- Bill Belichick takes a slightly different perspective. He said leadership is “building a team that is exhaustively prepared, but able to adjust in an instant.”
What do you say leadership is?
To help you answer that question, I recommend reflecting on your own experiences. Stop and think about it for a moment. Who are some of the people who had the most profound impact on you throughout the most important seasons of your life…
From birth through middle school? (Picture the person in your mind. Make this real.)
High School and college? (See their face. That person made a difference.)
Your professional career? (Who is it?)
During each of those seasons, what were the attributes of those leaders that made the most impact on you? What inspired you? How did they challenge you or help you grow?
