Transcript of Making A Case for Leadership

There are
Barriers to

Through our responses to challenges, we all have the potential to either seriously worsen or profoundly improve the world in which we live. - Leadership Challenge
Every day the opportunity for leadership stands before you. Each day brings you opportunities to raise important questions, speak higher values, and surface unresolved conflicts. Every day you have the chance to make the difference in the lives around you. - Leadership on the Line
Leaders have a desire to make something happen, to change the way things are,
to create something that no one else has ever created before.

- Leadership Challenge



You Will Challenge:
Daily Habits
Tools of the trade
Ways of thinking
"Habits, values, and attitudes,
even dysfunctional ones,
are a part of one's identity.
To change the way people see and do things
is to challenge how they define themselves."
"To persuade people to give up
the love they know
for the love they've never experienced
means convincing them to
take a leap of faith
in themselves
and in life."
- LotL
Intuitively, people play it safe rather than put at risk the love, esteem, and approval of people or the institutions they care about.
Heroes & leaders are viewed as "the chosen ones"
- it's hard to imagine ourselves in that role.
Leadership comes naturally and easy.
Leadership has
a start date and an end date.
Leadership requires a title, a position, and power.
People who have the title, position, and power
are great leaders.
Leadership is tied to academic success.
Leaders are infalliable,
and know everything.
Leadership is an endless process of learning.
It requires dedication and committment.
It is imperfect and not glamorous.
Leadership causes relationship ties
to bend and sometimes break.
Change to processes, new initiatives and
innovations may cause loyalties to disappear,
and frustrations to rise.
Remember: not everyone is ready
to Step Up with you.
Public opinon sways
with every decision.
I can promise you that the challenges
you'll meet on the road to success are
far less difficult to deal with than
the struggles and the
disappointments that come from
being average. - Jim Rohn
Leadership is about creating opportunity for change.
All change involves risk.
Stepping outside of your comfort zone
is incredibly risky.
There's a chance you might fail,
you may struggle,
you may not be right.
Confidence can be misperceived as
arrogance and/or egotistcal.
Push Through &
Navigate with
your GPS
your network.
Be authentic.
Be consistent.
Be clear.
to what they have to say.
Work together
as a team.
... but know
& understand there will be times
it's important to stand alone.
Stay involved for the
long haul - not just
the short races.
Keep growing
& learning.
Develop an awareness of
YOUR skills and the skills
of those around you.
Find your own voice
& develop your style.
So We Need to
c. drew / nov 2011
Understand that leadership
is a learned process.
Don't wait for a title!
Step up to the plate when
an opportunity presents itself.
Leadership starts when you know YOU'RE ready,
not when anyone else TELLS you you're ready.
Be OPEN to new/fresh ideas.
Love everything for 5 minutes.
A "knee-jerk" no will put everyone
in their defensive mode.
Be humble in your approach,
especially when considering change.
Lead with integrity and people will
trust your decisions.
Give credit where credit is due &
take responsibility when you should.
Deal with issues fairly and consistently.
Avoid jumping to conclusions or
passing judgements.
Allow yourself to think creatively.
Challenge others to do the same.
Be confident and assertive.
