Becoming You: How to Become a Leader

Bennis-On-Becoming-a-LeaderThe Book

Warren Bennis, On Becoming a Leader

The BIG Idea

Most leadership courses and books fail to produce leaders because they focus on the wrong things. They treat leadership as if it’s a thing to do, a means to an end. Instead, leadership is a side-effect, a by-product of a way of being. In particular, leadership occurs as a result of being fully expressed as a human being in the pursuit of something worthwhile.

Speed RAP

To become a leader follow the same path to become a fully functioning human being. It all starts with knowing yourself. Who are you? What are your strengths and weaknesses? Know what you want and how to engage others to help you fulfil that.

Your Challenge

Stop! Take a moment. Look inside. And, ask yourself this basic question: Am I being all I can be? Answer honestly and you’ll know what to do next.
