Whither Wilt Thou Lead Me?

A few days ago I ran across a line from Hamlet“Whither wilt thou lead me?”
Shakespeare’s words between Hamlet and his father’s ghost are a great reminder to leaders. Namely, that there are those who, while willing to follow, are wondering where you will lead them.
The question is, do you know the answer? Have you taken the time to identify the target, name the mission, clarify the vision? However you want to say it, unless you can paint a picture of a preferred future, you will have a hard time taking anyone there.
[Tweet “Leaders must start with a definition of the destination.”]
Make sure you are locked in on the destination and then show others the way.
Your people are asking, “Whither wilt thou lead me?”
Leadership Begins at Home,
Randy
Why do you think so many leaders make assumptions when it comes to vision?

Today's Challenge: Getting Off to a Fast Start

Leaders face obstacles daily, and often, we may not even think much about it. Challenges are just part of what we do. But what about a new leader, what issues does he or she face? Today’s Challenge question is from a leader who writes: What mistakes do you see new leaders make that could be avoided?

Today's Challenge: Huh?

Have you ever been confused by a message you received from a leader? Have you ever received mixed messages from leaders in your organization? If your organization has at least two leaders, I’m confident the answer is “yes!’ Today’s Challenge: How do you avoid sending mixed messages throughout your organization?

Today's Challenge: What Do Leaders Do?

How many times are you tempted to answer a question with a question? This is actually a good leadership practice. The more we help others think, the better for everyone involved. I want to answer today’s question, “How many people can I lead?” with a question, “What do you think leaders do?” Your answer to my question may help you answer yours.

Today's Challenge: Catalytic Meetings

Most meetings are useless. I’m guessing the more meetings you attend the more you’ll agree with that statement. Think about the REAL value of the last five meetings you attended. How much action was initiated or change realized as a result? That’s the topic of Today’s Challenge: How can we generate more action as a result of our meetings?

6 Things Leaders Cannot Delegate

My son recently asked me the question: What are the things a leader cannot delegate? As a leader of a thriving, high-impact non-profit organization (CARE for AIDS), he is trying to do what every leader should do: determine what only we can do… and then, do only those things.

Daily Dose of Vision

Vision leaks. This is one of many leadership lessons Bill Hybels has taught me over the years. Tragically, many leaders miss this elemental truth. I guess the mistake is explainable, but not excusable. The logic goes something like this: Since the vision is still burning white hot in our spirit, we make the fatal assumption it is still vibrant in the hearts and minds of those we are attempting to lead. Wrong!

One Word: Inspire

Over the last twelve months, I have written several posts in the One Word series. These are words leaders think about often. Some of the featured words have included Momentum, Team, Hope, Vision and Diversity. Today, the next installment… one thing every leader must ultimately learn to do, or give the baton to someone else to do – INSPIRE others to action.
