“The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.”
Which, of course leads to the question you should be asking yourself; Am I, and the systems in my business, division or area of responsibility focused on developing leaders? If not, why not?
Great, effective and admired leaders will tell you that one of the most gratifying aspects of leadership is developing and mentoring leaders. Don’t know how to begin? Two good places to start are The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential by John C. Maxwell, and Instant Systems by Bradley Sugars, the founder of ActionCOACH. After you read, talk with your mentor, advisor or coach to map out and follow your path to true leadership.
