7 Areas That Cause Leaders To Emerge

Uncategorized Jun 19, 2019

I've recently decided to reread the leadership classic The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell. This book is an instant classic! In chapter 5, The Law of E. F. Hutton, Maxwell describes 7 key areas that cause leaders to emerge. I had to share!

1. Character - Who they are

True leadership always begins with the inner person. People are more inclined to trust who you are when they know who you are.

2. Relationships - Who they know

Build enough of the right kinds of relationships with the right people, and you can become the real leader in any organization.

3. Knowledge - What they know

Knowledge alone won't make someone a leader. But without it he/she can't become one either.

4. Intuition - What they feel

Leaders must have a sixth sense, and they must trust it. This allows them to deal with any number of intangibles.

5. Experience - Where they've been

The greater the challenges you've faced in the past, the more likely followers are to give you a chance.

6. Past Success - What they've done

Nothing speaks to follower like a good track record. When a leader takes a risk and succeeds, he/she gives followers another reason to trust their leadership ability.

7. Ability - What they can do

The bottom line for followers is what a leader is capable of. As soon as they no longer believe you can deliver, they will stop listening.

Strength in these 7 areas will set you apart as the real leader in the organization. Remember, leadership development is a process. It doesn't happen in a day! However over the course of time, steady prodding will prove most beneficial in becoming a strong leader.
