When you look at the quality of leadership out there in the real world right now, you might find that being a legend is not that difficult.
Here are three prerequisites of leadership:-
A good leader is able to deliver the required results. Indeed it isn’t hard to drive employees hard and for a while to run any business or team in an environment of fear.
Yet legends are more than this.
Any old leader is able to make friends with the employees in their team and be that ‘Good old boy (or gal)’ for a while. Being a good buddy for those you manage isn’t hard.
And legends are more than this too.
Some good leaders are able to come up with a bit of a plan for the foreseeable future (and there are less even of these than you might think). It’s something of a plan on the ‘back of an envelope’ sort of thing, but it’s better than nothing.
The legendary leaders are different to this too.
Check in tomorrow for how to make that leap!
