Credibility is the foundation of effective leadership. For over 25 years, James Kouzes and Barry Posner (Authors of The Leadership Challenge) have asked people to identify the qualities that they “most look for and admire in a leader, someone whose direction they would willingly follow.” The key word in their question is willingly. There is so much written about leadership that it is easy to get caught up in the latest leadership craze. Many managers “lead by best seller” following the direction they get from a book written by the current leader of the month. It is challenging for young, aspiring leaders as well as seasoned leaders to figure out how they should focus their own leadership development in an effort to be the credible leader that others will willingly follow. The work done by Kouzes and Posner distinguishes itself from all others in that over their quarter century of work, four qualities of leaders have consistently and overwhelmingly been identified by followers and other leaders alike as the ones most critical to a leader’s credibility: honest, competent, inspiring, and forward looking. This webinar will give you strategies on how you can improve yourself in these four characteristics. And when we are done, if you do nothing but focus your efforts on trying to improve yourself in these four areas, you will be far ahead of your peers and others who continue to chase the next leadership fad.
