Who Are Leaders?

Posted by | February 16, 2015 | Leadership, Workplace

Via LinkedIn : Leaders are quite visible within small, medium businesses and large organizations. We often think of them as business owners, CEO, politicians as well as people at all levels of management. We also think of leaders in communities, education, law enforcement and in other global affairs.

But what about everyone else?

Health care providers, parents, solopreneurs, sports coaches, judges, consultants, mentors, partners in relationships, and others who interact with people on a regular basis are all leaders. You see, we all lead, either by choice or default.

If you haven’t thought of yourself as a leader, then you are limiting your thinking. Leading is the way we help move people into action, ourselves included. The question is not whether or not we are leaders, but how well we lead.

Our ability to lead determines whether or not our children do their homework, and how well they do it; how well we negotiate purchases; how we communicate with anyone we do business with; how we build mutually supportive and sustaining relationships, and most importantly, how much energy we can gather to motivate ourselves to take action -sometimes life-altering action – to live our most powerful, productive, purposeful and value-driven lives – before tragedy or procrastination settles in.

Whether you are a senior manager at a Fortune 500 company trying to solve multicultural talent management challenges while positioning company for innovation, the leader of a church group who wants to inspire your congregation and develop leadership team, the head of a law firm who wants to hire the best potential partners, a sports agent who needs help transitioning athletes, a professional who want to be a better partner in a relationship but don’t know where to begin, you could be standing at a cross road decision that requires a key to unlock a door you may never have realized existed.

On the other side of that door are more keys on the same foundational chain:

one to leading instead of controlling others;
creating unified and productive work and personal environments;
interpersonal effectiveness;
one that opens the gateway to intuitive and spiritual wisdom within us all; and
keys that unlock the secrets to overcoming fear-based energy blocks, such as perception biases, assumptions, interpretations, limiting beliefs, ‘inner critic’ or external barriers that prevents people from reaching their potential and purpose.

Perhaps the most transformational key of all is the one that lets you understand why you see yourself, your employees, your clients, your relationships and the world as you do. Once understood, you create the ability to choose, from seven perspectives, how to see yourself, anyone else, or any situation or challenge that flows into your world that most people are either unaware of, or avoid.
