Pleasing people is not the same as leading people. There is a fine line between Leadership and Likership. Even though our goal is to add value to the people we lead, not everyone you lead will be happy with the decisions you make while leading. That is okay! You can never make everyone happy. Wanting to make everyone happy will set you up for disappointment or failure. The real goal of leadership is to get the best out of your teams by asking for the best from the people in them.
How to navigate the Leadership/Likership Path
Be a Team Player
All leaders are in the people business. The key to successfully working with people is to value them and add value to them. Grow your organization by growing your people. These guidelines will help you grow your people while growing your business:
Believe that Change is Essential
Taking your Teams through the Change Process
Good leadership always challenges people to rise up to become their best and achieve more. Some people accept the challenge and others don’t. Work with the willing.
