We’ve all heard that leadership is influence. This quote from John Maxwell is great. There’s truth behind what’s being said. When we influence others, we are leading.
However, there’s also responsibility that comes along with leadership.
I believe we far too often overlook the responsibilities of leaders. Sure, we know what leaders are supposed to do.
Leaders are supposed to:
Guide your team
Influence others to action
Cast a vision
Share the message
It’s great to know what we’re supposed to do as leaders. These actions give us a road map for leadership.
And yet leadership is so much deeper than tasks.
Leadership means taking on responsibility.
Responsibilities Of Leadership
As leaders we’ve got responsibilities to those we lead. We’re going to be held accountable for the actions we take and where we lead our followers.
