The four phases of leadership growth:
Phase 1 – I don’t know what I don’t know
- Try to think of yourself as a leader and then work to become one.
Phase 2 – I know what I don’t know
- Recognize that you may not know what you need to know to lead effectively and start learning.
Phase 3 – I grow and know and it starts to show
- Recognize your lack of skill and begin the daily discipline of personal growth in leadership.
Phase 4 – I simply go because of what I know
- Your dedication to improving your leadership ability on a daily basis begins to pay off and your ability to lead becomes almost automatic.
No matter where you’re starting from in the leadership continuum, you can get better. It really is about daily preparation.
