How To Think (& Behave) Like a Leader

| Posted in Leadership Blog

If you’re a fan of Dan Rockwell (“The Leadership Freak”) then you already know that Leaders fail when they don’t think and behave like trailblazers should. And, when leaders think like individual contributors they demoralize their teams while devaluing and undermining their leadership. So, perhaps you’re asking yourself “how can I become a more confident and effective leader, someone that people want to follow?” The answer is simple, but not easy: change how you think and behave!

In short, become more coach-like in your approach to leadership. Focus on “we” rather than “I” while helping people align with their passions, rather than resorting to control and manipulation. Do “what” is right rather than being overly concerned about “who” is right as you work to simplify solutions and deal with the real issues. Making a move from “telling” to “coaching” will help you lead with clarity and confidence. This is why major companies worldwide are starting to see the value of coaching.

What shifts do you need to make as a leader?
