Leadercast 2014 issued a challenge to lead “Beyond You,” and Leadercast also calls on us to be “Leaders Worth Following.” In a recent post entitled The Longing, a call was issued for leaders to raise their hand and be a leader worth following. A video highlighting this call to lead well is below.
This needs to be more than a hand raised. This call needs to be leaders standing up and extending their hands to engage each other in meaningful ways.
A key question may be: Is all this just happy talk at a conference and then we go back to our workplaces and lead in the same ways? It is so easy to do.
As leaders, we need to rise up, define what it means to be a leader worth following, and then lead in that way. We may not get it right every time, but we are trying. In trying, we learn, and we get better. This sets the right leadership example.
So the question stands: Are your ready to stand up and be a leader worth following? If so, when? If so, in what ways?
Join in because the people we work with deserve it and you have the stuff within to lead in this way. Tap into your best leadership capabilities and be a leader worthy following.
