Leadership is learned over time. Leaders are always learners.
“Becoming a leader is a lot like investing successfully in the stock market. If your hope is to make a fortune in a day, you’re not going to be successful. There are no successful “day traders” in leadership development. What matters most is what you do day by day over the long haul.”
A. – “What is your plan for personal growth?” and “What are you doing to promote your professional growth?”
 Do your plans encourage development and continued growth from the previous day’s progress?
B. …if you want lasting improvement, if you want power, then rely on a process.”
 Discuss with your team what you can do day to day to create a new process of reaching your goal of becoming an effective leader.
 Take a personal inventory and write down some steps discussed that will allow you to begin your process of personal growth.
The Phases of Leadership Growth

 Phase 1 – I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DON’T KNOW: Name 4 people you can influence each day as a leader.
 Phase 2 – I KNOW THAT I NEED TO KNOW: Are you “in charge” of a group or are you a “leader”? Do you recognize that you may lack skills required to become an effective leader?
 Phase 3 – I KNOW WHAT I DON’T KNOW: What can you realistically do on a continual basis to bring you closer to becoming a successful leader? List and discuss what you KNOW you can do to start your process. Incorporate this into your calendars.
 Phase 4 – I KNOW AND GROW, AND IT STARTS TO SHOW: Ask yourself – “How hungry am I to learn and glean and grow?” Discuss the steps a team leader can start developing in the workplace today with fellow workers, employees, managers, etc. How can they be supported? What tools will you offer?
 Phase 5 – I SIMPLY GO BECAUSE OF WHAT I KNOW: Once you have studied and created a day–to-day process, your instincts will guide you on your journey – this is “The Law of Process”.
