The leadership Fallacy: As a student of leadership for the past 3 decades, this is what I have learned that the image we conjure up when we think of our leaders is a false image.
👉🏻We think that leadership is being in the right place at the right time.
👉🏻We think that leaders are “selected” to lead
👉🏻We think that leaders are “made”
👉🏻That in order to lead, we need permission.
It’s said leaders are supposed to create followers. This seems paradoxical to me. I contend leaders create more leaders, thus multiplying the role of leadership.
Seth Godin said, “When the world changes management always fails because we don’t understand how to move forward. The world is changing whether you want it to or not and faster than ever before. In the face of that change – we’re not going to be able to “manage” our way out of it. We’re going to have to lead!”
