Are you a leader in your industry or field?
Many people claim to be leaders, but I see them as Slackers. A Slacker is someone who essentially likes to give direction or instruction but does not take any action towards advancing their business or themselves.
This could be you, your up-line, or anyone else in your Mastermind Team. These clues might help you.
Leadership Training All You Need To Know About It… Are You A Leader Or A Slacker ?
Leader: Praises his/her team and offers support
Slacker: Fast to point out faults and slow to praise.
Leader: Represents his/herself at a higher standard than his/her team
Slacker: Expects a lot from his/her team but isn’t able to hold.
Self-regard to the same standard
Leader: Shows leadership and is a role model for his/her team
Slacker: Mixes in with the crowd but never takes on a leadership role
Leader: Have deep belief in their business and lead new colleagues through the growth process (learning and confronting obstacles).
Slacker: Persuades someone to join his/her group, then pawns them off to another person or pushes them to their side. (Referred as “sign and Drop”)
Which one of these traits best describes you? Be open with yourself.
Remember that leaders must inspire and support others in the process of growth. If a leader loses his/her integrity or fails to take action, this failure mindset will be passed on to his/her team members. Their team will repeat the actions of their leader.
