This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • How leaders should be approaching the current global crisis
  • The two types of leaders and how they differ
  • Why many people fail in leadership positions

Fundamentals vs. Implementation

The world is going through an unprecedented transition now, and leaders need to understand what is happening and lead by empowering people and co-opting people into the process of moving forward.

Despite all these changes, the fundamentals of leadership always remain the same. However, the challenge is implementation. There’s a lot of anxiety surrounding the changes happening nowadays, and part of our fallback position is to always go back to something secure, something we can try to control. We see this in leadership as well.

Trailblazers and Team Leaders

According to Scott Paradis, there are two types of leaders: the trailblazer and the team leader. The former just focus on being who they are, doing what they do, charting a new path for people to follow.

On the other hand, the team leaders are who we traditionally think of as leaders in a business setting. These people socially engage and connect with others to achieve an objective. The challenge with leadership is taking control of our ego and understanding that leadership is not about achieving any individual’s goal but about helping others become greater versions of themselves.

Carrots and Sticks

When people first get into leadership positions, sometimes they think it is about telling people what to do. Leaders often talk about “carrots and sticks,” and both positive and negative reinforcement can be powerful weapons in a leader’s arsenal.

However, many fail to realize that these tools should only be used to motivate people to become the best versions of themselves.
