There are some people that are born natural leaders Wholesale Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , and there are others that become great leaders through dedication and experience and a desire to see the people that they are leading succeed. Mac Anderson is a highly successful entrepreneur that has written a book call "The Essence of Leadership." In this book, Mac Anderson shares with readers all that he has learned in the last 30 years of what it means to be a leader and is an excellent read for anyone in a leadership role that wants to improve upon their own skill set and help those that are leading succeed.
Few people would argue that there is a right and a wrong way to being a leader. There are certain characteristics that differentiate an excellent leader from someone that is in a leadership position. Mac Anderson explains that those characteristics are personal traits that an individual lives and leads by including integrity, being ethical, loyal, persistent Wholesale Bryan Little Jersey , and faith that lead to personal success.
It's important that when attempting to lead people you follow this simple rule according to Mac Anderson in "The Essence of Leadership," " walk the walk, keep it simple and keep it real; celebrate successes; know that courage matters; keep hope alive; take responsibility; develop a 'service attitude'; aim for the heart; and make a difference whenwherever possible." He is a true believer in what he calls heart power. Mac Anderson stresses that if you "throw your heart over the fence the rest will follow." Often times those in leadership roles are afraid to take a risk, they are afraid to go out on a limb, but it is out that limb that the fruit is... the opportunity.
The Essence of Leadership also points out that integrity is not something that changes with situation; it isn't something that will change with the blowing wind. Integrity is the "inner image of our true selves." Mac Anderson also draws upon other wonderful quotes from some of the most incredible leaders of all time such as Henry David Thoreau who said Wholesale Jacob Trouba Jersey , "Leaders are like eagles, they don't flock together, you find them one at a time." He stresses that in order for a leader to be successful, you have to make your team successful which means that just like a garden it needs to be cultivated, and he uses a quote by John Murphy Wholesale Dmitry Kulikov Jersey , "Pull the weeds. Otherwise the team, just like the garden, cannot grow."
The Essence of Leadership is a book that is meant to be read quickly and reread whenever it is needed. It doesn't matter if you are someone that is new to the leadership position or someone that has been a leader for years. There comes a time when we all need guidance and advice, we need to reminded of the things that we already know, that a good leader is someone that rules with their heart and wants to see the team succeed. Mac Anderson has put together an inspiring read for anyone.
