Picking the RIGHT leaders, just got a little easier!
Navigating Leadership Selection: Identifying True Leaders for Your Organization
Selecting the right leaders for your company or organization can be an arduous task. Let’s dive into insights that can make this decision a tad easier.
Many people believe they are great leaders, but the reality is that truly exceptional leaders are rare. If we glance at history, only a handful stand out—figures like Moses, David, Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Winston Churchill, to name a few.
What sets these leaders apart? Interestingly, none actively sought leadership roles, and they didn’t necessarily feel qualified for their positions. Power and leadership were thrust upon them; they didn’t inherit them.
Why do we often promote those who seek positions rather than identifying the best leader? As leaders ourselves, it’s crucial to observe our team actively. Who is already a natural influencer, someone others willingly follow?
These individuals might not catch management’s immediate attention because they quietly get the job done. Unfortunately, managers might overlook their efforts, assuming they aren’t doing much because they don’t feel the need to report every task. It’s only when they leave the company or shift to another division that their true value becomes apparent, leaving their former boss overwhelmed with challenges they hadn’t encountered before.
