The act of leading is more than being the visionary, or acting thoughtfully for others. It is predicated also on how loyal and unconditionally helpful you are to others.
In many ways people cannot follow you if they can’t trust where you’re coming from.
Great ideas are best acted on when others in the room know where you stand with them. Teams stall when they don’t know what to expect from you.
Ways loyalty drives others
- When others feel you truly respect them.
- When you create a clear vision.
- Going out of your way to help.
- Taking interest in what people want to do.
- Being consistent
Servant Leadership, unconditional positive regard, and thoughtful patience are all specific behaviors that can engage your loyalty to others.
Each time you consider the little things with others, you amplify your influence, and enlarge your leadership footprint.
