The Roles of Leadership

Being a leader is always invigorating and at times it is downright exhausting.  When you think about leadership, you have to think about the many roles of a leader:

  • Visionary: seeing what no one else sees in the winding road ahead
  • Educator: you have to coach people to awaken their potential and the potential of your organization
  • Innovator: you have to innovate to lead.  Otherwise you are a follower
  • Motivator: you have to inspire people to fanatically join in on your mission
  • Communicator: clarity and focus of the mission, the work, and the priorities is how things get done.  Conversations matter.
  • Facilitator:  moving people from point A to point B requires you to ensure execution
  • Advisor: listening, mentoring, and being available builds deep commitment

The Lesson

Becoming a great leader really starts with learning, which comes in many forms.  Reading, having a “life team” of people you go to and think with, failing, curiosity; the desire to never stop growing.
