Leadership ISN’T a title—it’s a way of being…

by | Apr 14, 2022

I’ve been thinking lately about something that Brian Tracy—a motivational speaker and self-development author—once said about #leadership:

“Become the kind of leader people would follow voluntarily, even with no title or position.”

We’ve all had those leaders who like to wave their title around, who emphasize the chain of command, and make it a point to make sure others abide by it.

That’s not good leadership. If anyone ever told you it was, it’s probably because they haven’t had good leadership modeled for them.

The truth is, leaders #CARE about people and results – not just results.

Good leaders make it about others, not about themselves.

They have character, #integrity, and at the end of the day, they want to make the lives of those around them better.

You don’t have to be perfect to be a good leader.

You do have to be humble yet courageous, recognize where you need to grow, and be motivated by more than your title—but by a vision to create something wonderful or make something better, alongside others who believe in that same vision.

It is possible to be the kind of leader someone would follow even with no title or position.

When a leader holds on so tightly to the title or position in a way that supports ego-driven behavior, they lose credibility.

I don’t want that to be you.

Being a #coach leader (having the skillset and mindset of a coach) is one of the most effective ways to become the kind of leader “people would follow voluntarily, even with no title or position.”
