Great leaders don’t simply climb up the ladder; through mentoring, they build ladders for others to climb.

True leaders, however, make the shift from climbing up the ladder themselves to thinking about how they can build ladders for others.

Embracing moral authority rather than positional authority is the pathway to great leadership.

As Maxwell often says, leadership is influence.
23 April, 2019 16:15 Share
But what are the qualities inherent in moral authority? Well, integrity – the ability to align your actions with your words and live your values consistently – is important.
23 April, 2019 16:16 Share
Integrity makes you dependable and trustworthy – followable, in other words – in the eyes of your team because they know that you will do what you say you will, and that your actions are rooted in strong moral values
23 April, 2019 16:16 Share
Also important is courage
23 April, 2019 16:17 Share

Final summary

The best leaders change and adapt. They leadershift – that is, they make leadership changes that boost both their own and their organization’s growth. They focus not just on directing but on connecting with their teams, and they pursue not just short-term goals and career moves, but deep personal growth, moral authority and their true calling in life.
