How To Become The Kind Of Leader Others Want To Follow

The key to becoming an effective leader is not to focus on making other people follow, but on becoming the kind of person they want to follow. You must become someone others can trust to take them where they want to go.

As you prepare yourself to become a better leader, use the following guidelines to help you grow:

Let Go of Your Ego. The truly great leaders are not in leadership for personal gain. They lead in order to serve other people. Perhaps that’s why Lawrence D. Bell remarked “show me a man who cannot bother to do little things, and I’ll show you a man who cannot be trusted to do big things.”

Become a Good Follower First: It is rare to find an effective leader who didn’t learn to become a good follower first.

 

Build Positive Relationships: Leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less. That means it is by nature relational. Today’s generation of leaders seem particularly aware of this because title and position mean so little to them. They know intuitively that people go along with people they get along with.

 

Work With Excellence: No one respects and follows mediocrity. Leaders who earn the right to lead give their all to what they do. They bring into play not only their skills and talents, but also great passion and hard work. They perform on the highest level of which they are capable.

 

Rely On Discipline: Leadership is often easy during the good terms. It’s when everything seems to be against you – when you’re out of energy, and you don’t want to lead – that you earn your place as a leader.

 

Make Adding Value Your Goal: When you look at the leaders whose names are revered long after they have finished leading, you find that they were men and women who helped people to live better lives and reach their potential.

 

Give Your Power Away: One of the ironies of leadership is that you become a better leader by sharing whatever power you have, not by saving it all for yourself. You’re meant to be a river not a reservoir. If you use your power to empower others, your leadership will extend far beyond your grasp.

Feel free to share this if you got value and you wanna help someone else out.
