Episode 37: Don’t Just Be a Leader, Be a Black Belt Leader
What does it mean to be a truly incredible leader? Unfortunately, just because someone holds a position of leadership, doesn’t mean they should. Often times that leader has found themselves there because the leaders that put them there do not understand what actually makes a good leader, and they have been chosen for the wrong reasons.
So how do we recognize great leaders, and more importantly, how do we ensure that we are leading well. Because the real question is not how to make someone else more effective through your leadership. The real question is are you able to effectively lead yourself first.
