Great leaders are made, not born. And what makes a leader can be recreated to create more leaders, and better leaders, and teams comprised of incredible, self-motivated leaders.
To be a great leader, the key is alignment. At least, that what the results of a Bain & Company study say.
Practicing what you preach and holding values aligned with your company’s mission are two of the key factors in qualifying an inspiring leader.
A great leader there might not be a great leader here. HBR says it best: Effective leadership isn’t generic.
Building a team with shared values, with a mission that speaks to them, is key.
And if you can convince them that your goals and their goals are one and the same: you’re a great leader. Which will help you build a team of great leaders.
