The Essence of Leadership

In the past few years, I have become increasingly passionate about the topic of leadership and the importance of leadership development. Once I read Mark Sanborn’s book, “You Don’t Need a Title to be a Leader,” my passion for leadership went from a flicker to a flame.

Definition of Leadership

Google defines leadership as, “the action of leading a group of people or an organization.” Although the Google definition provides general terms, it does not outline the attributes necessary for good leadership or the dangerous impact poor leadership has on an organization or faith-based ministry.


Let’s Talk About Leadership

“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He [She] is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” President Ronald Reagan.

Just because a person holds a leadership (or management) position, DOES NOT mean they should. Amen to that! Sure they may “meet” or exceed the education and/or desired experience qualifications, but that does not equal good leadership.

Attributes of a Good Leader

  • Honesty
  • Creates conditions of trust
  • Good Communicator (actually speaks to and interacts with subordinates)
  • Courageous
  • Accountable
  • Exercises Emotional Intelligence
  • Innovative
  • Visionary
  • Strategic Planner
  • Leads by Example
  • Passion for a greater cause
  • Leads with influence, not control
  • Has Strong Interpersonal Skills
“One of the greatest accomplishments you can be paid as a leader is to have someone say that you have helped them be better than they thought they could be.” ~ Mark Sanborn

Are You a Leader?

According to John Quincy Adams, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, YOU ARE A LEADER.”

Leadership Resources


Final Thoughts

Thankfully, I have only encountered a low percentage of poor leadership/bad management in my 25+ years as a working adult.

Even though poor leadership didn’t create the healthiest or safest workplace environments, I realized I could benefit from their ineffective leadership. Yep, I began to study their ineffectiveness to teach me what NOT TO DO. #PerspectiveShift

Not only did I learn what not to do, I eventually created a consulting business that will be instrumental in creating good leaders who will have the tools and skillset to positively influence change.

Micromanagers are killers…

Especially in the workplace, micromanagers can kill motivation, creativity, and overall productivity.

It’s safe to say that a micromanager is one whose management style is obsessively controlling of the creativity and freedom of their staff or subordinate. It is one who has an “it’s my way or the highway” managing style.

When I think of a micromanager, specific thoughts and terms come to mind:

  • Control freak
  • Insecure
  • Lacks confident in their management role
  • Ineffective
  • BossZILLA
  • So annoying!!!

I saw a Somee card graphic/meme online states, ” I perform better under strict micromanagement, said NO employee ever.” After I LAUGHED OUT LOUD (for real), I thought about the sad reality of that sarcastic meme that many good employees are faced 40+ hours a week. A few questions come to my mind when I think of micromanagers in the workplace, like:

  • Do these people, identified as micromanagers, know they are micromanaging their subordinates?;
  • Is executive leadership aware of the micromanagers who are driving employees crazy and stealing the organization’s productivity?
  • Is it possible, micromanagers see their style as strategic and effective to their employer and staff retention?

I’ve read articles that offer ways for the affected staff member(s) to change their approach in dealing with the “micromanager”, but none that suggest how leadership assesses and fixes the problem of how micromanagers are killing motivation, creativity, and productivity. Is there help for good employees who HATE coming to work and have increased absenteeism just for their own sanity?

Do organizations understand the COST OF A BAD BOSS? Have you experienced having a micromanager or were you ever told you were a micromanager? COMMENT BELOW…
