Leadership Strategies, Mistakes, & Best Practices
Mark Sanborn has found that too many definitions of leadership focus on the outer manifestation of leadership: the title, position on the org chart, and corner office space. These perquisites of appointed leadership may have little to do with the actual ability of the individual who enjoys them to lead. Sanborn has found that the more telling characteristic of true leaders is their power with people as opposed to the positional power they may enjoy over people.
Whether you are in the hierarchy of management in your company or you aspire to be, there are basic and advanced skills that, when utilized effectively, can be the determining factor in achieving superior results. All managers are challenged to lead their teams for effectiveness and improved organizational success.
