The Leadership Challenge – Kouzes and Posner

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 26, 2009

The Leadership Challenge is a must read in the leadership field.  Both Chris Brady and I had read the book before writing our NYT and WSJ best seller Launching a Leadership Revolution.  I highly recommend Kouzes and Posner’s book to any aspiring leader on their journey up life’s mountain.  I will share their five points for transformational leadership from the book.  Study these and see if you are exhibiting the five points for transforming your team’s results.  God Bless, Orrin Woodward

 

Transformational Leaders – Five Principles

 

1. Change the Process – Leaders drive change by working on the process.  If the process is not changing and improving, then the leaders are not leading.

 

2. Inspire a Shared Vision – You as a leader have to provide direction and inspire them to reach it.  Everyone should know and be inspired to hit 1 million people.

 

3. Enabling Others to Act – Provide the team methods that allow people to move forward.  Help remove obstacles that hinder people from accomplishing the team’s goals.  The Team PC is constantly asking what can we do to help people grow faster.

 

4. Encourage the Heart – Reach out and touch people’s hearts the same way we would use logic to help them make decisions.  The Smile/Validate video is a perfect example of encouraging the heart.

 

5. Model the Way – Lead by Example.  The Team PC is in the hunt with the rest of the Team leaders to reach our goals and dreams together!
