Below are key excerpts from the book that I found particularly insightful1 Leadership is developed not discovered The truly born leader will always emerge; but to stay on top natural leadership characteristics must be developed In working with thousands of people desirous of becoming leaders I have discovered they all fit in one of four categories or levels of leadership The Leading LeaderThe Learned LeaderThe Latent LeaderThe Limited Leader2 Management is the process of assuring that the program and objectives of the organization are implemented Leadership on the other hand has to do with casting vision and motivating people3 Listed below are some characteristics that must be exhibited with excellence before advancement to the next level is possible Level I PositionRightsLevel 2 PermissionRelationshipLevel 3; ProductionResultsLevel 4 People DevelopmentReproductionLevel 5 PersonhoodRespect4 Success can be defined as the progressive realization of a predetermined goal This definition tells us that the discipline to prioritize and the ability to work toward a stated goal are essential to a leader's success In fact I believe they are the key to leadership5 Integrity is not what we do so much as who we are And who we are in turn determines what we do Our system of values is so much a part of us we cannot separate it from ourselves It becomes the navigating system that guides us It establishes priorities in our lives and judges what we will accept or reject6 1 Integrity builds trust2 Integrity has high influence value 3 Integrity facilitates high standards A Integrity results in a solid reputation Not just an image 5 Integrity means living it MYSELF BEFORE LEADING OTHERS6 Integrity helps a leader be credible NOT JUST CLEVER 7 Integrity is a hard won achievement7 The you change the you become an instrument of change in the lives of others If you want to become a change agent you also must change8 WHY PEOPLE RESIST CHANGE The change isn't self initiatedRoutine is disruptedChange creates fear of the unknownThe purpose of the change is unclearChange creates fear of failureThe rewards for change don't match THE EFFORT CHANGE REUIRESPeople are too satisfied with the way things areChange won't happen when people ENGAGE IN NEGATIVE THINKINGThe followers lack respect for the leaderThe leader is susceptible to feelings OF PERSONAL criticismChange may mean personal lossChange reuires additional commitmentNarrow mindedness thwarts acceptance of new ideasTradition resists change9 People change when they hurt enough they have to change; learn enough they want to change; receive enough they are able to change The leader must recognize when people are in one of these three stages In fact top leaders create an atmosphere that causes one of these three things to occur10 Great leaders understand that the right attitude will set the right atmosphere which enables the right responses from others11 My success in developing others will depend on how well I accomplish each of the following Value of people This is an issue of my attitude Commitment to people This is an issue of my time Integrity with people This is an issue of my character Standard for people This is an issue of my vision Influence over people This is an issue of my leadership12 Successful people developers give THE RIGHT ASSISTANCE TO PEOPLEI need to work out their strengths and work on their weaknessesI must give them myselfI must give them ownershipI must give them every chance for success13 My observation over the last twenty years has been that all effective leaders have a vision of what they must accomplish That vision becomes the energy behind every effort and the force that pushes through all the problems With vision the leader is on a mission and a contagious spirit is felt among the crowd until others begin to rise alongside the leader Unity is essential for the dream to be realized Long hours of labor are given gladly to accomplish the goal Individual rights are set aside because the whole is much important than the part Time flies morale soars upward heroic stories are told and commitment is the watchword Why Because the leader has a vision14 The process for developing personal disciplineStart WITH YOURSELFStart earlyStart smallStart nowOrganize your lifeWelcome responsibilityAccept accountabilityDevelop IntegrityPay now play laterBecome character driven instead of emotion driven
