Today, I want to give you FOUR myths about LEADERSHIP that people tend to believe:
1. If I am not on TOP, I can’t LEAD. It is important to understand that LEADERSHIP is not POSITION, it is INFLUENCE.
2. When I get to the TOP, then I will learn to LEAD. You will be tomorrow what you are preparing for today.
3. If I were on TOP of the company, then everyone would follow me. If people don’t or won’t follow you now, they won’t follow you then either.
4. When I get to the TOP, I will be able to do ANYTHING. The truth is the higher you go in LEADERSHIP the less options you have.
It is so important to understand that LEADERSHIP IS INFLUENCE not POSITION. You can lead from anywhere in the organization, TOP OR BOTTOM.
