Everything rises and falls on leadership
Our world is full of bad leaders. It’s full of it. You’ve probably seen it yourself, and because of that, there are so many issues due to the fact that everything rises and falls on leadership. The reason we have failures in business, we have failures in education, non-profit organizations, and government, all goes back to leadership.
It’s the reason for low morale, low productivity, low employee engagement, all the bureaucratic rules, and so on. It all goes back to leadership. If you look at the stats, so many people are disengaged at their job and they leave because of the leadership.
We need to fix this leadership problem. We need to get it right so that we can have a world where employees are happy to be at their jobs.
They have a purpose in what they do. They are a part of great cultures so that businesses can thrive and be productive. So we can have a well-functioning government and so our kids can be educated well at schools. We need great leadership."We need to get the leadership right so that we can have a world where employees are happy to be at their jobs." ~ Thomas R. Harris Click To Tweet
What kind of leader are you?
One of the big issues we have with bad leadership is that people don’t realize that they are bad leaders. Think about it. Think about maybe the worst boss you’ve ever had or other just negative or toxic leaders you’ve seen and ask yourself, did they think that they were a bad leader?
No, it’s highly unlikely. It’s like asking people, what kind of driver are you? Are you below average, average, or above average? Most people will say above average.
We like to rationalize and we like to think well of ourselves. So part of our goal with this podcast is to help you and others see what good leadership is and what isn’t to see where you may be failing and to help you work to improve it.
Why don’t we have many great leaders today?
One reason we have bad or weak leadership in our different institutions is that often people aren’t trained in leadership. Sometimes the people who hire them don’t know leadership well, so they can’t even teach them.
They aren’t trained and then they get into these jobs and perform poorly because they just don’t know. Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. Sometimes these people just follow what is often common practice or common knowledge.
But here’s the thing about common knowledge or what comes into practice. Why isn’t it working if common knowledge and common practice were right? If it’s so good, why don’t we have many great leaders instead of so many bad ones? I’ve come to, in many cases equate common knowledge and common practice to wrong knowledge and wrong practice.
In this podcast, we hope to rectify that. We want to help you see the superficial. We want to help you see where there might be misconceptions and see where the common knowledge might be, right? But you need to take it to a deeper level.
So wherever you are as a leader, if you are a leader of a team who wants to build a great team and just be a great leader of that team, this podcast is for you. If you’re not in the position of a leader yet, but you want to grow and become a leader, this podcast is for you as well.
And if you’re a leader in an organization, you want to grow as a leader, and build a great organization, this podcast is for you. You see, the ultimate goal is to end the trend of bad leadership and to create a world where great leadership is the norm."The ultimate goal is to end the trend of bad leadership and to create a world where great leadership is the norm." ~ Thomas R.
