3. Am I a Leader People Can Emulate?
At the end of the day, people want to follow someone that they want to be like. Of course, every person wants to be unique in their personality, their style, etc. But…
And let’s be honest, none of us will follow someone long term that we don’t want to be like on the inside. When we get to know someone more deeply and don’t like what we see, over time, we’ll begin to pull away from that person.
So the challenge for us as leaders is this: Am I living my life and leading in such a way that people will want to emulate what they see? At the end of the day, people follow leaders they can emulate.
As leaders, we don’t have to know everything, but we must know ourselves because people will follow us far more than they follow our vision statement, strategy, or bottom line.
Application Question: How am I doing at leading myself well?
