Strong leaders consistently self-assess. They seek leadership tools to further progress and develop their leadership skills.
Leaders who have already realized a certain level of success and therefore think they have no use for new and innovative leadership development tools - need to think again.
"Just remember that if you're not working at your game to the utmost of your ability, there will be someone out there somewhere with equal ability who is. And one day you'll play each other, and he'll have the advantage."
No one gets a free ride - not for very long anyway. By developing yourself through the use of quality leadership development tools you'll be securing your future as a highly credible leader.
Leadership development is a process, a never-ending journey. Various tools can assist a leader to continue to move forward in the leadership development process.
Recently a client stated, "I feel as if I am a good leader - but that isn't good enough. I owe it to my team and I owe it to myself to become a great leader. I need outstanding leadership development tools."
But let's stop and think about what our client said for a minute. He used the word 'GREAT'. What a terrific vision, to be - great. Surely no one would disagree with a leader's vision for his/her team to be great - or would they?
'Greatness' in anything does not come easily or without a significant amount of effort. Greatness does not magically appear. To be great at anything takes a lot of personal commitment and sacrifice.
Greatness takes leadership - it takes vision, clarity, focus, courage, passion, preparation and most importantly - execution. Greatness takes all these things and more.
Leaders often assume that each team member's will to achieve great things, equals their own. But leaders should NOT assume this because many (if not most) people do NOT aspire to be great. Sure, they may work to meet their sales goals and earn their incentive pay (and this is GOOD). But a leader cannot make the mistake of assuming they strive for greatness.
A strong leader will know who is really committed to being great, simply by having an in-depth one-on-one discussion with each team member. In this discussion they'll talk at length about the leader's vision of "greatness".
If someone doesn't fit the current position they hold, the leader must quickly address the issue. Hopefully, with a solution that supports both the team and the individual.
These discussions will be quite telling and the leader can quickly get a sense of each team member's commitment and level of personal engagement.
Bottom line - a great leader is going to invest the time necessary, using effective leadership development tools, for determining who the right people are for the key positions.
Make no mistake about it. The success of the TEAM is paramount, because the team's success will determine the company's success.
