Leadership is a role that regardless of who you are, at some point, you will find yourself in that position. Whether it be in your home life, business or spiritual life, at some point you will find yourself having to take the lead.
If that statement makes you uncomfortable, it may be that you have an antiquated view of what leadership is. Modern successful leaders no longer buy into the – my way or the highway, do as you are told – style of management.
While leaders need to be someone who a team can follow with respect and have the awareness of what it takes to get the team to the finish line, the modern leader also needs to be open to the team’s input, collaboration and open to change. This requires a high level of vulnerability.
This openness to change means a new flexibility and the understanding that people need to feel a part of something in order for them to feel invested, as well as loyal to you. So how do you make that shift?
This is what we are discussing today with Dov Baron, bestselling author of several books, including his latest, “Fiercely Loyal: How High Performing Companies Develop and Retain Top Talent.”
