Confident Leaders Invite Arguments

Will you listen?

“Argue with me.” He said it, AND he meant it. As I watched this leader invite his team to tear down his idea, I was astonished, inspired and humbled.

  • Astonished: Because I had never seen a leader so readily open to criticism from the people he led.
  • Inspired: Because I watched his team argue passionately for and against the leader’s point of view.
  • Humbled: Because I realized I am not always confident enough to have my ideas torn down by others.

Why Do People Follow?- The Survey Results

Leadership Hero Survey Results Graphs

Now it is official! The survey results are in. Why do you follow a leader?  What makes a leader great?  630 responses to two questions we posted across multiple social media forums and other venues gave us the answer.

Before I tell you the answer.  I am going to tell you what it is not.  People do not follow someone because they have the best education, are the smartest or are the most qualified.  The skills and compentencies that we get MBA’s for and spend millions of training dollars on only got 13% of the vote.   Continue Reading…

The #1 Priority For Leadership Development

The Tools Don't Make The Leader

A man came to my house the other day asking for work.  I handed him a hammer and some nails and told him to build a tree house for my kids.

Three Keys To Personal Growth For Leaders

Growth Takes Work

“I know what I am doing now.”  That is what I thought after a few years leading sales teams.  I thought I had arrived.  But each time I allowed myself to think that, I was proven wrong.

Someone or something always surprised me.  A new challenge would surface that I was not prepared for.  It took awhile, but I finally realized becoming a leader has no end point.

Unfortunately, some leaders fall into a rut and stop growing.  To be a lifetime leader, leaders need to never stop growing.  If leaders stop growing, over time people will stop following. Continue Reading…
