For most of us leadership development is a product of our exposure to other people who we have followed. Most of us haven’t spent any time intentionally working to improve our natural abilities or finding something outside of what others have modeled for us. Proximity to great leaders is a rare occurrence and when you have the opportunity to experience someone who embodies these skills you may reject it because it is so different from the status quo.
Many leaders challenge those around them to leave their comfort zones and become the person they were placed on this planet to be. For the majority of the world this is extremely uncomfortable. This usually triggers one of three reactions:
Pretend they are onboard and then fade away
Openly rebel against the new leader’s guidance
Take advantage of having someone to follow and embark on the new journey
Think about the last time someone showed up in your life and inspired you to do something that you wouldn’t normally do.
Who was it?
What made you feel compelled to take action when being comfortable was the easier choice?
Do you want to be able to give that feeling to others?
Chances are you read the last question and paused because you asked whether you could impact someone like that.
I know I did.
Even though I was a captain of most of my sports teams and president of many extracurricular activities in schools I questioned my ability to lead when I got into the workplace. I ran from titled leader to titled leader hoping to find the secret to becoming an executive. The age old “do a great job in the job you are in came up time and time again.”
I knew this was part of the answer, but I know it wasn’t the whole thing. As time passed, I realized that all the people who were in the jobs I wanted had one thing in common. They all lived amazing lives inside and outside of work and they had the ability to influence everyone who had the opportunity to spend time with them.
The question most will ask at this juncture is well is this something everyone can master?
I mean really… Is this art or science?
In true consultant fashion the answer is “It depends.”
It can be mastered with the right knowledge and then skilled practice. We created the Leadership Bullpen for financial services professionals who want to be the top leaders in the industry.
