Leadership today

As leaders, you and I are responsible for finding good models to emulate. Give great thought to which leaders you follow because they determine your course as a leader. I have developed six questions to ask before picking a model to follow: 1. Does my model’s life deserve a following? 2. Does my model’s life have a following? 3. What is the main strength that influences others to follow my model? 4. Does my model reproduce other leaders? 5. Is my model’s strength reproducible in my life? 6. If my model’s strength is reproducible in my life, what steps must I take to develop and demonstrate that strength? The models we choose may or may not be accessible to us in a personal way. Studying national or historical figures can certainly benefit you, but not the way a personal mentor can.
