Leadership means taking the initiative in shaping your private and professional lives. There are many leadership theories and techniques and we are given many examples of “who we should be”, “who we should be like” and “how we should behave” and “what we should do” to become better leaders. The truth is that in leadership there is no right or wrong way; there is only your way. In leadership there is no “who to be” and “what to do”; there is “who are you” and “why to do” Effective leaders don’t look at others; they look at themselves.
Value Based Leadership is like a compass that helps you navigate your private and professional lives. It doesn’t plot one course for the rest of your life. It helps you plot a course for every individual situation you may find yourself in.
The principle of Value Based Leadership is simple. To understand what to do on one level you take the bigger picture to identify the bigger idea on the next level.
