Myths of leadership

  1. 1. MYTHS OF LEADERSHIP<br />Presented by :<br />ShahidRaza<br />PGDM – 5th Trimester <br />Shailesh Singh<br />PGDM – 5th Trimester<br />
  2. 2. “If your actions inspire others to dream more , learn more , do more and become more , That’s a leadership”. “John Quincy Adams ”<br />(6th president of the United States)<br />
  3. 3. “Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it”.<br />“Dwight D. Eisenhower”<br />(34th president of the United States)<br />
  4. 4.  Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. <br />Leadership is a process whereby an individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal.<br />
  5. 5. Leadership can exist in both formal and informal groups. In a formal setting, such as within a large corporation, the leader of the group is usually someone who has been appointed to a high position of authority. In an informal setting, such as a group of friends, the leader is someone with personal traits that simply tend to inspire respect.<br />
  6. 6. Myths<br />
  7. 7. To lead you should have followers.<br />Leadership does not imply that you have to be in front of a group. If you are the only person working in a department you can still demonstrate leadership attitudes.<br />
  8. 8. Good leaders have more education than other people<br />Educational degrees may mean you have a good education, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are a good leader. When it comes to leadership, experience is the best teacher. <br />
  9. 9. Leaders are born not made<br />“The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born — that there is a genetic factor to leadership. In fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born – Warren G. Bennis”.(chairman of the Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California)<br />"Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile." --Vince Lombardi (First football coach- Brooklyn)<br />
  10. 10. Leadership Requires Formal Power and Authority<br />When we think about leaders, we almost always think about people who have or had formal positions of power -- politicians, corporate executives, sports coaches, etc, probably because it is those people who garner the most publicity.<br />“It’s a huge mistake”<br /> For example, if you look at almost any leader with formal power (let's say a football coach), what you'll find is that the successful ones have leadership ability PLUS a formal position, but that among the "followers", there will be players who are informal leaders without formal position. These informal leaders influence other teammates to perform at high levels and are often essential to the formal leader's success.<br />
  11. 11. Leaders should “keep team members at arms length”. They should not get too close or friendly with them.<br /> Forming close relationship, even friendships, is the key to effective leadership. It is only here that a leader really gets to know and understand his or her team members and business partners at deep enough levels to genuinely help them be the best they can be.<br />Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says "Go!" - a leader says "Let's go!"  ~E.M. Kelly(First member of U.S military)<br />
  12. 12.  Leaders should control their people. They should find the weaknesses in their people and help them overcome or strengthen their weak areas.<br />Each person is delightfully unique. Their so-called “weaknesses” are a part of what makes them unique. Forget about trying to fix these. Instead focus on helping people excel in their strong areas. Find ways to help them become more and more of who they fundamentally are.<br />
  13. 13. Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says "Go!" - a leader says "Let's go!"  ~E.M. Kelly(First member of U.S military)<br />
