The extent to which you’d like to lead
Conscious decisions about leadership
Balancing leadership among other things

Authors developed

a framework to match elements of the leader to their positions.
The Problem of Drift
Drift is the “organizational currents” that carry workers upward.
This causes a gap between who they personally are and who they are as leaders.

Individuals can drift into promotions:
As a result of how they perceive their paths through this process
As a part of a general desire to advance in the organization

The basic problem is that executive positions consist of leadership positions (as opposed to technical skill). This can lead to executives and managers being uncertain; hurts effectiveness
The Problem of Drift
Leaders who do not have clear goals can experience “Drift”.
Where does Leadership
1) Leadership happens at all levels, not just at the “Top”.
2) Make a conscious choice about: Why, When, Where, and
how you lead.

“Most effective leaders are those who commit themselves to getting better day by day and then apply their skills to improving the lives of other people in the organization they are in or their communities.” (pg. 2)
Everyday, Everywhere Leadership
Opportunities are everywhere.
Think about opportunities outside your own life, family/friends, community, organization or job.
Set goals and take chances.
Underlying Philosophy
Find YOUR purpose in life
Anchor point of Leadership
Do you know your purpose yet?
Are you achieving your purpose?

“You’ve got to find what you love.”- Steve Jobs (pg. 15)
Discovering Leadership Framework

The “Tool Kit”
Includes competencies, styles, and experiences.
Helps identify your strengths and weaknesses.
Helps to clarify why and how you lead.
