The Leadership Journey
Leadership Is A Journey
Are leaders born or made? We believe it is more helpful to view leaders as being made, which corresponds with our lived out experience that all great leaders continue to develop and grow. No one is born with the ability to lead a complex growing business. Every successful leader continues to develop and grow as they journey past leadership levels they previously have not occupied.
Each of us has particular inherent strengths and weaknesses. As leaders we more easily gravitate toward identifying our strengths but we can struggle with identifying and owning our relative weaknesses. We believe leaders should operate out of their strengths, while recognizing how to mitigate the weaknesses that can be fatal flaws to their leadership.
Leaders plan for the success of their company, team and direct reports. But how often do you as a leader take time out to intentionally plan for greater success as a leader in all areas of your life? As leaders we must ask ourselves – how can I lead others, if I am not first leading myself?
Since leadership is a journey, leaders never arrive. All leaders continue to navigate to areas they have never encountered before. Having a trusted and experienced confidant and coach whom you can process leadership issues with allows you to lead your company, your team, and yourself onward toward greater success.
