Five Levels of Leadership

There is a saying that leaders are not born, they are created. Teambuilding to develop leadership skills and instills the value of this leadership is a question. Maxwell asks "How can you develop a business? By cultivating the people that the basic elements of any business, institution and organization is human capital.

According to John Maxwell, there are five levels of leadership:

First leadership post: People follow you because they have for the most part these are the kind of leaders who just warm their seats and to contribute marginally to the organization. On the other hand, it can serve as a platform from which an individual develops on the upper levels of leadership. This is best described by Machiavelli "It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles"

Leadership at the second permission: People follow you because they want to. Top-down relations are replaced by side-by-side relationship.

3rd LEVEL PRODUCTION OF LEADERSHIP: People follow because of what you've done for the organization. This is where the leadership really takes off. Peter Maxwell cited Drick "There are two types of people in the business community, those that produce results and those that give you the reasons why they did not" leadership by example defines the visual standards. The head of production results attracts other teams very productive.

4th PEOPLE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: People follow because of what you have done for them. The core of this level is the need to develop people so they can carry with you. A leader is not productive enough. A leader is necessary to reproduce. Sharing leadership with others gives you back in time to do something more important. Maxwell points out that:

"It takes a leader to know a leader,
It takes a leader to demonstrate leadership and a
it takes a leader to grow a leader "

5th: PINNACLE LEADERSHIP: People follow because of who you are and what you represent. These leaders are Pinnacle a step above the rest. What distinguishes them is that they create a lasting legacy that is passed to the next generation of leaders to continue.
