The Short and Sweet Role of a Leader

Mike Myatt, CEO coach and author of “Leadership Matters…The CEO Survival Manual” runs N2growth, a top leadership blog. He recently interviewed John Maxwell, best selling author and leadership expert.
Mike Myatt: What do you see as the primary role of a leader?
John Maxwell: Helping others succeed. If you take a trip up a mountain by yourself, you’re not a leader; you’re an achiever. A leader takes people somewhere. And they take the people not only where they want to go but also beyond where they believe they can go.

Call it vision, empathy, motivation, energy. It takes finally honed leadership skills to tap into all these resources within us to call us toward a goal or purpose.

There are many examples of these types of leaders ..Anita Roddick, the founder of the Body Shop, Sir Ernest Shackleton the polar explorer who led 28 men to survival after their ship wrecked in Antarctica and Andy Grove, the founder of Intel.  

Success Television offers video of these successful leaders  and many more to help teach and show employees and students what good leadership is.
