BECOMING A LEADER

  • Good leadership involves responsibility to the welfare of the group.

REJECTION

One of the most common costs of leadership is the experience of rejection. If you are willing to accept the call to leadership, at times, you may be rejected and misunderstood.

CRITICISM

No leader is exempt! The very nature of effective leadership involves taking a position on issues, making decisions, and determining direction. These will always result in some form of reaction from one’s environment.

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER

LONELINESS

Leadership, at times, is lonely, because you must be out front, ahead of the followers. Also, because the leader is the one with the guiding vision and purpose, he/she sees the end from the beginning and must live both the process and destination, all at the same time.

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER

PRESSURE AND PERPLEXITY

Leaders must face the challenge of the responsibilities and demands that come with leadership. These involve the need to make critical decisions, often under constraints and external pressure.

MENTAL AND PHYSICAL FATIGUE

Leadership places heavy demands on the individual who fills the position. There is no way to become an effective leader and not be affected by its stress, physical demands and mental toll.

PRICE PAID BY THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU

You must be aware of the tremendous cost which will be born by those closest to you (for example, family members). Because leadership demands the giving of oneself to others, your life becomes the property of those whomyou SERVE.

expanding your personal empowerment
EXPANDING YOURPERSONAL EMPOWERMENT

Assess your present level of personal empowerment. (Be honest. Solicit input from various sources.)

Determine whether your performance falls below, meets, or exceeds customer expectations.

If your performance is below expectations, assess your level of commitment. (Seriously reexamine whether you are committed to meeting the expectations of your position. If not, make plans for doing something else.)

committed, determine the new skills you require. (If your responsibility and accountability expanded with your new/present position, write details about the new skills you require—personal and/or professional skills.)

Acquire a mentor/coach to hold you accountable. (Check out the results you produce.)

Work to overcome your self-limitations. (Let’s talk about self-esteem.)

EXPANDING YOURPERSONAL EMPOWERMENT

If committed to expanded empowerment, define a new challenging area of activity. (Describe a project or an area of activity you would enjoy. This should involve significantly expanded responsibility in terms of the acquisition of new personal and/or professional skills.)

Proceed and apply steps five and six where difficulties occur. (Get started on the new project; use and learn proven professional methods and knowledge.)
