The Pillars we will discuss today come from a book called “Leadership by Invitation” by Barry Smith. It is important to note the importance of placing greater value on who you are than what you do. And it is ironic that just as iron sharpens iron, the pillars will sharpen the pillars.
The five pillars are awareness, environment, growth, communication, and influence.
Pillar #1: Awareness
Awareness is knowledge and knowledge is power. As Dr. Wayne Dyer stated, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. Getting caught up in the overwhelm causes us to shut down our awareness and lose sight of our identity.
Pillar #2: Environment
Environment includes your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors etc. We are a product or the product of our environment. Let your environment become a product of you!
Pillar #3: Growth
Growth is based on a journey. Your Journey. Your growth will be based on 3 keys:
Pillar #4: Communication
If we cannot properly communicate with others we will not be able to Build What Matters.
Pillar #5: Influence
Leadership is Influence. You cannot be a leader by being a “yes” man. You cannot be a leader by trying to please everyone. Your success is based on how many people you help to be successful.
