The 4 pillars of leadership

One of the services I most enjoy doing is training new leaders or updating those who already work in this position.

Leadership is talked about, but little is known about what it really means to be a leader.

No one is born a ready-made leader. We are developing and working on leadership skills.

That is, there is a way for you to be a great leader.

But what about Alvaro, what do I need to know or do to be a great leader?

The first orientation I give my students is to talk about the 4 pillars of leadership which are:

  1. Vision: Vision is the ability to create something for the future. A new goal, a new business, a new product. Daniel Goleman says in his book that one of the 6 most powerful leadership styles is the Visionary Leader, with this ability to see far, like, for example, Walt Disney who created the entire Disney system when many called him crazy. When you are clear about where you want to go, the path opens up more precisely in front of you.

  2. Reality: Knowing where you want to go is important, but knowing where you are is critical. You have the goal of being top 10 companies in Brazil. The first thing is to know if you are the best in your street, in your city, or in your region. To lead is to create a future, but to be aware of where you are today.

  3. Ethics: Ethics is the set of values ​​that we all have. The people who inspire us the most can see that they have strong values ​​and they never break those values. It is our values ​​that help us make decisions. I always say in the lectures “a heavy conscience is a broken value”.

  4. Energy: The team is a reflection of the leader's energy. Often you will have to invest more energy and sometimes take your foot off. It's having balance to take the company to the top.

Get clarity on these 4 fundamental pillars of leadership, as I'm sure they will help you be a great leader and create a champion company.
