Businesswoman leading a teamWhat makes one leader draw leaders and another followers?

Some leaders attract others who want to not only do what their coach is doing, but more. Others become leader-followers.

These leader-followers find a leader and then never develop to the full potential within them. They listen to their coach, attend every call, follow every step and remain average, following rather than becoming their own leader.

How does this happen?
Team members follow in the steps of their leaders.

If you have a leader that is passionate, leading the charge to change, breaking the path and staying steadfast and true to their dream and vision, you will see other leaders emerging from this team to do the same.

What about those leader-followers? They too follow their leader and do what is modelled for them.
So what type of leader are you growing: Leaders or Leader-followers?

Sure, you will grow a team, you will earn money, and find fulfilment in your achievements but will you see the passion and ignite the fire for your team members? Not until you live the passion and ignite your own fire.

You must live it before others will see it and want what you have!

You must lead the change and become a leader with passion, confidence and a belief in yourself, a leader with a self-sacrificing spirit.

Recognizing this is the first step, making the change for yourself and your team takes time, patience and determination.

Here is how you can begin to grow leaders rather than leader-followers:
1. Grow yourself. Read a book a week or listen to an audio a day.
2. Be organized, consistent and follow through.
3. Be vulnerable. No weepy, lay-it-all-out, but share your challenges, your insights and your celebrations! Be real!
4. Love yourself, then others!
5. Model confidence and success, whether you feel like it or not. Take the feelings out of your daily conversations. Act yourself into a new attitude.
6. Keep a telescope on your goals and your vision for your business. Narrow your goals down to the very core and then eat, sleep and touch those goals every day!

Through this journey you will not only change yourself but you are giving a gift to your team, to your leader-followers. You are giving them the gift to see that they can do so much more, be more, live more, and love more!

  6. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  7. Excellent blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol

Having said that, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to everybody that your comments are generally not completely rationalized and in reality you are generally your self not wholly certain of your assertion. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.

  9. I precisely desired to appreciate you once again. I do not know the things that I would’ve created in the absence of the type of opinions documented by you regarding that subject matter.

  11. Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  12. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve gotten hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the problem is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing relating to this.

  13. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful info specifically the last part :) I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this certain information for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  14. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..

  15. I as well as my pals happened to be analyzing the great procedures located on your site and all of the sudden I got a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the website owner for those tips. The young men came totally glad to read all of them and now have without a doubt been making the most of those things. Many thanks for actually being well considerate and also for getting some decent ideas most people are really desperate to know about. My personal sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

  16. I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not sufficient people are talking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing referring to this.

  17. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  18. I’ve learned newer and more effective things from the blog post. One other thing I have discovered is that in many instances, FSBO sellers may reject you. Remember, they can prefer not to ever use your providers. But if you maintain a comfortable, professional partnership, offering assistance and being in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually manage to win a conversation. From there, a listing follows. Cheers

  19. Thanks for the thoughts you have discussed here. On top of that, I believe there are several factors that really keep your motor insurance premium down. One is, to consider buying automobiles that are inside good report on car insurance corporations. Cars that are expensive are more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance policies are also based on the value of your truck, so the higher priced it is, then the higher the particular premium you make payment for.

  20. Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration program is designed for scholars to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelor degree education. The 90 credit education meets the other bachelor college degree requirements so when you earn your current associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to the most up-to-date technologies within this field. Several reasons why students have to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in this area and want to have the general schooling necessary previous to jumping right into a bachelor education program. Thanks for the tips you provide in the blog.
