Many people are promoted or recruited into leadership positions without understanding the fundamental philosophy of leadership;
It’s all about people.
When you are a leader, you are no longer responsible for doing the job; you are now responsible for inspiring, coaching, mentoring, and motivating your team to become the best version of themselves, which will help them produce their very best work.
That’s why we have many companies grossly over-managed and severely under-led. One must remember, the talents that make a person successful in a previous, non-leadership role are rarely the same ones that will make them excel as a leader.
When a leader can inspire and empower their team to become the very best version of themselves by challenging their assumptions of what they can accomplish, a leader can now empower their team to believe in the impossible and produce unimaginable results to the astonishment of many.
