Great Leadership- Brad Worthley

Is Great Leadership a Destination or a Journey?
Great leadership is not a destination; it is a journey. If you don’t think you or your employees need more leadership development, then I would suggest that you should probably be the first one in line for training. Great leaders are voracious learners and always seek out new information with which to strengthen themselves and build their people. Great leaders are not number makers, they are people makers and that requires an investment of time and resources in the people that you serve. The growth of most organizations is directly and proportionately tied to the growth of its people. Schedule time each week to train and coach the people you lead and also schedule time to build your own knowledge base – Don’t let it be accidental.
Who is in Control?
If you are a leader of people, let me ask you; “Are you in control or are your employees?” The reason I ask the question is that many leaders don’t want to upset their employees, lose their respect or their friendship so they don’t make the tough decisions. I am all for getting employees involved in the process of change and decisions, but if they stray from what is best for the organization and instead focus on what is more convenient for them, it is your job to make the right choice and not the popular choice. I would encourage you to make the tough calls when needed, and if you are a great leader, you will not lose their respect, as a matter of fact you might even gain some respect in the process.
