Leadership Is Not Easy But It Is Powerful!

executive leadership mentoring

As i shared with you in the last blog, my speaking engagements allow me to get real time feedback and questions about Transformational Leadership and some of the recent conversations have been eye-opening to say the least! It just never ceases to amaze me how many so called “leaders” believe that their associates work hard for their business during the week so they can do what they want to do on the weekend. I am blown away that they just don’t get that associates want a life that has challenge, reward and learning during their working hours. Without that opportunity to be challenged, the associates become bored, unhappy and dissatisfied which leads to poor quality, poor service and many human issues. So, how do we change the leadership environment ?

I assume you already knew that I would say it can only be changed with real leadership and you could not be more correct in your thinking. It may sound very simple but the more we get our associates feeling good about themselves, about the contribution their work makes and about their involvement in resolving issues/needs, the more you drive business success. The old, autocratic ways of a manager are done. The new ways of leading are begging to be utilized and sustained by confident and committed leaders!

This whole thought of leadership with a focus on the future needs of the organization is leadership with a commitment to improve and be better versus just showing up. Transformational Leadership at it’s very simple core is a person or associate centered leadership that once a leader gets started it is like the proverbial snowball rolling down the hill in that it grows and can’t be stopped. While this is not necessarily easy to do because it takes focus versus just mindless management techniques, it is much more simple than many believe it is and it is the game changing and powerful way to create success beyond what many believed was achievable in any organization.
