21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

1 THE LAW OF THE LID

Leadership Ability Determines a Persons Level of


Effectiveness
Leadership ability is the lid that determines a persons level of
effectiveness. The lower an individuals ability to lead, the lower
the lid on his potential. The higher the leadership, the greater the
effectiveness. If youre leadership rates 8, then your
effectiveness can never be greater than a 7. If your leadership is
only a 4, then your effectiveness will be no higher than a 3. Your
leadership ability for better or for worse always determines
your effectiveness and the potential impact of your
organization.

You have two options in front of you right now.


You can either keep your leadership lid at the level it currently is at.
Continue creating the same results, firing and hiring people on your team
hoping to see a change. Or maybe try pushing harder to reach your goals,
squeezing tightly to increase your productivity and performance, but keep
wondering why your desires feel so out of reach.
Smart, talented people are able to go so far because of the limitations of
their leadership. To reach the highest level of effectiveness, you have to
raise your leadership lid.

2 THE LAW OF INFLUENCE

The True Measure of Leadership is Influence Nothing


More, Nothing Less
You have achieved excellence as a leader when people will follow
you everywhere if only out of curiosity.
True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed, or assigned. It
comes only from influence, and that cannot be mandated. It must
be earned.
Several Factors That Make a Leader :
1) Character Who They Are true leadership always begins
with the inner person. People can sense the depth of a persons
character.
2) Relationships Who They Know with deep relationships
with the right people you can become the real leader in an
organization.
3) Knowledge What They Know information is vital. You
need a grasp of the facts to develop an accurate vision for the
future.
4) Intuition What They Feel leaders seek to recognize and
influence intangibles such as energy, morale, timing and
momentum.
5) Experience Where Theyve Been the greater your past
challenges, the more likely followers will be willing to let you lead.
6) Ability What They Can Do the bottom line is followers
want to know whether you can lead them to victory. As soon as
they no longer believe you can deliver, they will stop following.

3 THE LAW OF PROCESS
