Business Management Nonfiction True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others. The 5 Levels of Leadership are: 1. Position - People follow because they have to.

People do more than merely comply with orders.

They actually start to follow. And they do so because they really want to. Because the leader begins to influence people with relationship, not just position.

When people feel liked, cared for, included, valued, and trusted, they begin to work together with their leader and each other.

And that can change the entire working environment. The old saying is really true: people go along with leaders they get along with. Level 3: Production Production qualifies and separates true leaders from people who merely occupy leadership positions.

Good leaders always make things happen. They get results.

Some people never move up from Level 2 Permission to Level 3 Production. However, if you desire to go to higher levels of leadership, you simply have to produce. There is no other way around it.

Level 4: People Development On Level 3, the emphasis is on personal and corporate productivity. The ability to create a high-productivity team, department, or organization indicates a higher level of leadership ability than most others display. But to reach the upper levels of leadership that create elite organizations, leaders must transition from producers to developers. Good leaders on Level 4 invest their time, energy, money, and thinking into growing others as leaders.

How does this emphasis on people and people decisions translate into action?

Leaders on the People Development level of leadership shift their focus from the production achieved by others to the development of their potential. When you are a level 4 leader, you are at the top of a pyramid of leaders you created. The company reaps benefits from all those leaders. So take your time and build your pyramid. Be ready to work hard, since working with people and motivating them to develop may be the most laborious task you will face.

You will reach level 5 by never stopping the learning process, training the best people, and fighting your own fears and insecurities. At level 5 your main goal is defining leadership, practicing what you preach, developing leaders, and thus creating a leadership culture.
