Have you had challenges inspiring and directing others?
Maybe you have trouble getting people to take you seriously.
Perhaps the opposite: people find you aggressive or over-assertive.
Or, maybe, you’re actually pretty good at leading a team…
…but only in certain settings where you’re very comfortable (and with people who already treat you with respect).
Sometimes, these challenges can drive people to stop expressing themselves. Sometimes they avoid leadership positions all-together. Have you ever felt this way?
Here’s “the rub”:
You can’t achieve greatness alone.
All great endeavors, even outside of business, require a team. And teams don’t get anything done without a leader.
Leadership is the biggest professional opportunity that no one is talking about.
According to BrandonHall’s recent State of Leadership study, 84% of organizations anticipate a shortfall of leaders in the next 5 years.
And although more money is spent on leadership development than any other area of corporate learning, 71% of companies do not feel their leaders are able to lead their organizations into the future!
And it seems like no one can do anything about it!
63% of millennials feel their leadership skills are not being fully developed by their employers. And their school, parents, and friends aren’t helping them either.
So here’s the takeaway:
- The most in-demand and valuable business trait is leadership.
- Leaders are very hard to find even though the World is desperate for them.
- Most methods to train, groom, and promote new leaders fail.
Now, more than ever, your ability to lead will determine your financial future.
And, of course, there are other benefits that affect you on a deeper level. Leadership skills will strengthen your resolve in times of doubt. Leadership also aligns your behaviors with your values.
With so much at stake, and the World so in-need of leaders, why is it so hard to develop them?
And what can you do to fill the gap and exploit it for great gains (both material and emotional)?
Here’s the major mistake corporate establishment, schools, and even entrepreneurs have made:
They believe in only one type of leadership.
The real truth is, leadership has “phases”.
If you’re having trouble getting the team to execute your vision, or even listen to you, it might not just be lack of skills…
It is more likely a lack of self awareness that’s holding you back.
So it’s more than just knowing if you are capable of leading, but what type of leadership you can provide.
It’s been proven: nothing will make you more valuable and more effective than discovering your leadership phase.
