CYA and keeping your head down 2. Political gamesmanship 3. Looking out for “Number 1” 4. Deceit 5. Domination and Intimidation 6. Mediocrity and Bureaucracy
  8. 8. Think about it………. This is how most people would describe their leaders This is why 80% of the population doesn’t look forward to going to work on Monday mornings This is why Gallup’s most recent research shows 30% of employees Engaged, 52% Disengaged and 18% Actively Disengaged (70% of employees actively or passively working against the strategic goals of the company). This is why teams, companies, organizations and communities are so often UNINSPIRING. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 8

  14. 14. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 14 Courage “Reaching beyond the boundaries of our existing limitations, fears, and beliefs.” It all begins with Courage. We can't change anything, say sorry, or "I love you”, or change the world, without Courage. Followers love courageous leaders.
  15. 15. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 15 Authenticity “Being genuine, transparent and aligned with our inner voice in all aspects of life.” We are Authentic when what we think, what we say, what we feel, and what we do, are aligned—the alignment of the mind, mouth, heart and feet. Followers love Authentic leaders.
  16. 16. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 16 Love “Relating to others by touching their hearts in ways that add to who we both are as persons.” We are afraid to use the word "love" in the workplace, and yet we all yearn to be Loved in every part of our lives—including our work. Followers love compassionate and caring leaders.
  17. 17. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 17 Service “Willing and actively supporting the good of the other.” The first responsibility of a leader is to Serve others—employees, customers, shareholders, vendors, communities— all those who are stakeholders and whose lives we touch. Followers love servant leaders.
  18. 18. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 18 Truthfulness “Being honest and transparent in all thoughts, words, and actions.” It is hard to find the Truth—in business plans, budgets, expense reports, tax returns, resumes, performance reviews or marketing, but when the Truth is told—in an inspiring way—it is like a breath of fresh air. Followers love Truthful leaders.
  19. 19. Let’s review them….. © 2017 The Secretan Center Inc. - www.secretan.com 19 Effectiveness “Achieving desired outcomes successfully.” When we are Effective we increase our chances of achieving our dreams, in all aspects of our lives, through greater levels of mastery— as leaders and as human beings. Followers love competent leaders.
