MENTORING: Leaders spend most of their time with their inner circle, not the crowd.

In a relatively short period of time, people around a leader grow from where they are in life to becoming strong leaders who lead large organizations. Often simple or inexperienced people transform into strong leaders, role models and personalities. How does this transformation happen? It occurs when a leader spends a large portion of their time with these people. “The world’s great leaders devote most of their time to those immediately around them, rather than to the masses.”

Good leaders live by the principle: “More time with fewer people leads to greater impact for the whole.”

Like all good mentors, good leaders provide:

  1. A Handrail: Leaders simplify complex topics so they can be easily understood and communicated to other people. They take complex theories and make them practically usable.
  2. A map: A map shows us the way and helps us see where we are. It gives us instructions as to which path we should take and which path we should avoid. Managers do this continually with their employees.
  3. A laboratory: Laboratories are safe places for experimentation. Leaders not only teach, but also provide practical opportunities for people to try out what they have learned.
  4. Roots: Leaders provide their employees with a solid foundation and a sense of succession. Employees can root themselves in fertile ground and prepare themselves to commit to the cause and take responsibility. Anyone who is rooted automatically assumes responsibility.
  5. Wings: Leaders empower and encourage employees to keep going and grow beyond their own limits. They inspire succession and challenge employees to pursue their own success and victory.

MENTORING: Leaders spend most of their time with their inner circle, not with the crowd.

In a relatively short period, people around a leader transform from where they stand in life into strong leaders who lead large organizations. Sometimes, simple, and ignorant people progress to bold leaders and role models. How does such a transformation occur? It happens when a leader devotes most of their time to these individuals.

The world’s great leaders invest most of their time with the people directly around them, not with masses.”

Good leaders practice the axiom: “More time with fewer people results in a greater impact on the whole.”

Like all good mentors, effective leaders provide the following:

  1. Handles: Leaders simplify complexity so that it can be easily understood and passed on to others. They take complex theories and make them practical.
  2. A Roadmap: A map reveals to us the way and helps us understand where we stand. They show us which way to take, and which way to avoid. Leaders constantly do this with their people.
  3. Laboratories: Labs are safe places for experimentation. Leaders not only lecture but also provide opportunities for people to practice what they’ve learned.
  4. Roots: Leaders provide their people with a firm foundation and a sense of succession/heritage. People sink their roots into solid ground and prepare to commit themselves to the cause and take responsibility. Those who are rooted automatically are willingly assuming responsibility.
  5. Wings: Leaders empower and encourage individuals to continue and grow and sour beyond their own heights. They push and cheer them to their own victory.
