The Process of Great Leadership
The road to great leadership (Kouzes & Posner, 1987) that is common to successful leaders:
◦Challenge the process - First, find a process that you believe needs to be improved the most.
◦Inspire a shared vision - Next, share your vision in words that can be understood by your followers.
◦Enable others to act - Give them the tools and methods to solve the problem.
◦Model the way - When the process gets tough, get your hands dirty. A boss tells others what to do, a leader shows that it can be done.
◦Encourage the heart - Share the glory with your followers' hearts, while keeping the pains within your own. (nwlink.com)
