“THE IDEAL LEADERSHIP”

THE IDEAL LEADERSHIP

There is no such thing as a perfect leader. Not every word she speaks or every deed she performs necessarily illustrates the essence of good leadership.

We see leaders devoting their time to supporting not only those who appear to be the best or most worthy in the eyes of others, but often also those who need their support most. They correct grievances, clear up false beliefs and sometimes make decisions that are difficult to understand. Occasionally they even devote their efforts to those who seem inappropriate to the others on the team.

Everyone who is supported by a manager has one thing in common: they recognize their own needs. They approach the manager with a need, with an idea, often with empty hands looking for help in the hope that the manager will show them empathy and the right path. And the manager does not disappoint this hope.

When people see a leader’s dedication and strength in action, they elevate that leader and say, ‘Here is an outstanding leader!’ and ‘This leader came not for himself, but to help others.’

Our world is full of people with needs, of men and women who recognize that something is missing, and of hurting people with outstretched hands reaching out for help. As leaders for a common cause, our job is to reach the people who are in our organization and our sphere of influence. This allows those who recognize their needs to have the opportunity to join and grow.

To think about:

  1. How can I identify the individual needs of my team members?
  2. What specific steps can I take to help my employees promote their development?

THE IDEAL LEADER

There is no perfect leader. Not every word spoken by them, nor every action they take necessarily exemplifies the essence of good leadership.

We observe how leaders devote their time not only to support those who are perceived by others as the best or most deserving, but often also those who are in the most urgent need of assistance. They address issues, dispel false beliefs, and sometimes make decisions that may seem difficult to comprehend. On occasion, they even extend their efforts to those who may appear unsuitable to the rest of the team.

All of those to whom a leader assists have one thing in common: They recognize their own need. They approach the leader with a need, with an idea, often with empty, hands outstretched, hoping that the leader will show them the empathy and the right way. And the leader does not disappoint this hope.

When people observe the dedication and strength of a leader in action, they elevate this leader and say, “Here is an outstanding leader!” and “This leader has come not for themselves but to help others.”

Our world is full of people with needs, with men and women who realize that something is missing, and with wounded people reaching out for help with outstretched hands. As leaders for a common cause, it is our duty to reach the people within our organization and sphere of influence. This way, those who acknowledge their needs can have the opportunity to join us and grow.

Food for thought:

  1. How can I identify the individual needs of my team members?
  2. What specific steps can I take to assist my employees in promoting their development?
